The region of Karst was once covered with Oak trees that Venetians have extensively used for building up the City on water. They have left the wind to peel off earth revealing limestone grounds. In this landscape the tradition of small, compact, stony and almost windowless houses developed and remained until today.

via hypebeast.com

Built with stunning, pristine minimalism, the Casa Balint quietly rests in the suburban regions of Valencia, Spain. Ideated by Spanish architecture firm Fran Silvestre Arquitectos, the home was designed with clever elliptical shapes built into the two-story facade and surrounding area. Accordingly, a crescent-shaped swimming pool shadows the structure itself, while the surrounding garden echoes the shape as well. At the interior, the two-story home is focused around an open plan living space at the center, where the kitchen, patio, and staircase all conjoin.

”The previous owners’ energy was something spectacular,” remembers a regular at Anahi, La Jeune Rue project’s first restaurant. The iconic Argentinian restaurant located on a non descript Marais backstreet in Paris was created over 20 years ago by sisters Carmina and Pilar until they decided to retire and sell the business to French entrepreneur Cédric Naudon who bought Anahi and 35 other businesses in the area. His aim? To create a design-led village of restaurants, bars and boutiques where the produce is sourced nationally. The Argentinian restaurant is only the first step in the creation of the new neighbourhood that’s actually proving to be more of a leap for the city due to its surprising lack of ostentation.

The latest project from São Paolo based design studio Arthur Casas, Casa (house) AL is another perfect example of the team’s intimate connection to horizontal scale. Built in Joa, in the hills outside of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, the three-floor home is fully integrated with its natural surroundings due to the choice of materials. But best of all, it has a very unexpected ocean view that is second to none.

Casa Rocas

The view of the Pacific terrain is preserved, even facilitated, throughout Studio MK27’s and 57STUDIO’s collaborative, modern house Casa Rocas in Chile’s Valparaíso Region. Sitting on a stony hillside that gently slopes into the sea, the house has been fashioned by lead architect Marcio Kogan into a drawer-like design that renders it into horizontal boxes and trays that “slide” into the hillside, creating multiple levels from which the magnificent view can be taken in.
