This cabin perched on a hillside on Norway’s west coast features modular rooms that extend outwards from the main structure to enhance views of the adjacent fjord. Architecture studio Rever & Drage was asked to replace a dilapidated holiday home from the 1950s with a contemporary cabin that makes the most of the spectacular vistas from its site in the district of Straumsnes. The original building was demolished. But a swimming pool from the same period was retained and refurbished, along with a recent annex that the studio integrated into its proposal and used as a reference for the new building’s material palette.

DUST Custom Builds an Off-Grid Arizona Dwelling from Volcanic Rock

In Arizona’s San Rafael Valley, architectural alliance DUST has completed a dwelling designed in direct response to the region’s distinct history and context. Located 15 miles North of the border between the United States and Mexico, ‘Casa Caldera’ occupies a site formed by volcanic activity that resulted in a mineral and resource-rich land. ‘From native agricultural cultures, to nomadic hunter-gatherers, to conquistadors and missionaries, to pioneers, miners, cattle, and cowboys, to militia, migrants, and narcotraficantes., the San Rafael Valley in Southern Arizona is the quintessential landscape and folklore of the wild west’, says the design team.

New Zealand studio Architects’ Creative designed ‘Ophir‘, a hillside dwelling in Christchurch constructed from black zinc, rough concrete and cedar wood.

Commissioned by owners whose previous home was lost to the Canterbury earthquake of 2012, the project centers around the notion of resilience. Exposed structural steel frames support the upper living level, which offers sweeping views over the Southern Alps. A timber interior brings warmth to the house, offering “a sense of security, substance and permanence,” say the architects. “[The house] affords moments of calm within spaces for reflection, embodying a way of living to better suit its occupants.”

New wWave Architecture rotates three cantilevering volumes in Tehran

Designed by local-based practice New Wave Architecture, ‘Three Views / A House’ is a project that wants to highlight the relationship human beings have with nature and how they are tangled to natural landscapes. Located on the Northern side of Tehran, near the domains of the Alborz mountains, the program aimed to create a place where sightseeing, both to the peaks and the flat plains, was one of the principal elements. Their goal was to merge nature with human life, leading them to have a vertical distribution of functions, with less land occupation for building and hence, to allocate more land to design the views to the landscape.
