The western shore of Lake Garda is characterised by its mild climate and richly cultivated landscape. David Chipperfield Architects has built two villas on the hillside looking over the resort town of Gardone Riviera. Both buildings are carefully inserted into the landscape with its olive groves and cypress trees. Their volumes are divided into individual one or two storey structures, which are offset to one another following the topography of the hillside.

The tilted frame of the house by Budi Pradono Architects was designed as an antithesis to the status homes and mock-European styling of a gated community in Jakarta, Indonesia. The 320-square-metre house called Rumah Miring, or Slanted House, sits on an eight- by 20-metre plot in Pondok Indah, a gated community established in the south of the city in the 1970s and 1980s.
