At the same time, a high ceiling also means that there’s a possibility to have tall windows that go all the way up, like this residence that architect David Jameson designed in Maryland, United States. With stunning full-height glass walls that define an entire facade and even wrap around the corners, this residence gets to offer unobstructed views of the gorgeous landscape that surrounds it. It’s a house designed by REX and it’s meant to serve as a shared home for three generations.

It’s what studio Clauwers & Simon did when designing this residence in Belgium. The building is organized around a courtyard and its design is a tribute to Belgian architect Juliann Lampens who is known for the extensive use of concrete both inside and out the buildings designed back in the 1960s. The impact of the concrete in this particular case is softened by the timber and the views of the large garden.

It can take years to find the ideal location but when you do everything falls into place. For this residence designed by Hassell, it was the site and views that shaped the building. What better way to enjoy a spot in the mountains with views over the tree tops than from inside a cozy home that has a floor-to-ceiling window positioned just right…This seems to also be the idea that Fearon Hay Architects had when they designed this retreat in Queenstown, New Zealand.

In the case of this residence in Barcelona, Spain, the most important element was the landscape and thus the views. The house was built by Isern Associats on a very steep site which allowed it to frame magnificent views of the valley. A limited budget was also one of the challenges that the architects at JRKVC had to overcome when designing this house in Slovenia. The client wanted the house to be small and to have a design inspired by traditional rural architecture but with an ultimately modern character. The glazed facade with two tiers of windows is a defining element of the design.

The ceilings are covered in exposed steel, the floors are made of exposed concrete and the sculptural staircase and the handrails are made of raw steel. This would be a very cold and austere combo if not for the warm wood accents that balance out the decor. A cool feature is the fact that the artwork is painted directly on the walls by local artists. Check out this funky and colorful kitchen decor or the accent wall in the bedroom.
Aiglentine Dupont Exterior, 2017-05-01 09:33:16. This is a dune house located near Buenos Aires. It was built by Luciano Kruk Arquitectos and it’s a concrete structure designed to be enjoyed during summer. The site on which it stand has an uneven surface, sloping towards a pine forest. The house follows the natural topography of the land and becomes partially embedded into the slope. This helps it better communicate and blend in with its surroundings and the sand dune which it traverses.

What we love the most about this guest house designed by Desai Chia Architecture is the scale of the windows and how they wrap around corners to capture the most amazing views. The whole idea behind this cozy although pretty big house in Valle de Bravo, Mexico, was to offer the owners the opportunity to enjoy living in the middle of nature, surrounded by trees and tranquility. The design direction chosen by Weber Arquitectos includes a lot of glazed walls and floor-to-ceiling windows while the house as a whole was designed around the existing trees, preserving the environment as much as possible.

It has this very simple and appealing look and a well organized structure, with each of the three floors serving a specific function. The ground floor is a guest area, with an entrance lobby and other welcoming spaces. The first floor is where the main bedroom suite is situated and that leaves the second floor which houses the living, dining and kitchen area. On top of it all there’s also a roof garden and a glazed hatch that lets one access it.
