Architecture practice SCEG designed this family house on the island of Nosy Be, Madagascar’s busiest tourist destination, drawing inspiration from its breathtaking tropical surroundings. Named after a nautical term that means ‘travelling with open sails’, the house has a large slanted straw roof with triangular openings, which indeed are reminiscent of the sails of a yacht.

Txai House by Studio MK27, situated in Itacaré, near Salvador de Bahia, Brazil. A masterful example of fine Brazilian modernism. The 7,000 square foot house offers a radical experience of integration between the inside and out. It does not look like it is a place to drink coconut water, swaying in the hammocks. It is one. The tropical atmosphere of Bahia impregnates all of the spaces perfectly.

The architectural reconstruction and conversion of antiquated buildings, particularly in instances where their use is obsolete or outmoded, is a sublime art form. The architect’s creative expression is arguably tested to a much greater extent when he/she is presented with the dilemma (and challenge) of improving and repurposing an already existing historic structure. Retaining and augmenting the connection between past and present is an important premise, especially in a world where the new is all too often coveted and the old repeatedly disposed of.

The residents of a house in Melbourne have allowed architect Andrew Maynard to reveal their living spaces to passers-by, with a timber-framed extension that slots into the perimeter fence. The extension to a 1930s property on Della Torre Crescent, in the city’s Ivanhoe neighbourhood, was designed to provide a new kitchen, dining room, living area, bedroom and bathroom for a family of five.

Set in a mountainous region of Brazil – known for its low temperatures – the ‘Mororó House’ has been designed to offer generous internal spaces that provide residents with inviting atmospheres on cold days. Recently completed by Studio MK27, continuous volumes create a stark duality between an opaque block – where the living room is found – and the transparent area which houses a heated pool and sauna. An external wooden deck connects the programs, serving as a solarium to be used during winter months.
