Swiss architect Laurent Savioz of Savioz Fabrizzi Architects has transformed an existing structure in the fields of Ayent, Switzerland into a holiday house for his family. Originally built as a barn in 1882, the building was then transformed into a house in the 1980’s through the addition of a second floor before Savioz gave it a more contemporary make-over in 2013.

It is a longitudinal structure that blends with precision into the surrounding nature, alternating built volumes with open spaces in perfect balance with one another (it is no coincidence that the name recalls the “geometric” videogame of the eighties).

On a parcel in the hills outside Barcelona, RTA-Office designed House and Studio YC with two objectives in mind. The first was to preserve as many of the site’s trees as possible, allowing them to grow around any new construction. The second was simply to generate variety. ‘Variety of view; variety of colour; variety of light,’ says RTA-Office’s Simona Assiero Brá. ‘That is the main focus of the house, to capture segments of natural light and accentuate their changes throughout the day and year depending on the season and weather.’

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.

Casa Balint by Fran Silvestre Arquitectos

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.
