Nolan House

Located in Melbourne, Australia, the spectacular Nolan House is a project by Coy Yiontis Architects whom have created a beautiful light filled open space. The original heritage home is broken then reunified by the introduction of 3 courtyards of varying sizes allowing complete transparency across the site. The inside and outside of the house are merged through the use of sliding glazed panels and continuity of building materials, giving the impression of one large continuous space. With the addition of travertine tiles, timber detailing and minimalist furniture, the sophisticated residence is the epitome of serene luxury.

LA ROJA HOUSE

We have featured several retreat cabins over the years, but none as lively as this vibrant impression on the Chilean landscape. La Roja house by Felipe Assadi Arquitectos is located in a low-density, mountain area in San Jose de Maipo, Chile. The cube-like home has a vivid scarlet exterior that contrasts with its lush, green surroundings, and unlike the exterior, the interior features bright, airy interior spaces, and carries a more muted palette with walls lined in...
