Apple Park

Steve Jobs' final product announcement wasn't a new phone, computer, or gadget. It was a huge new campus for his beloved company. The newly-christened Apple Park will start welcoming employees this April, nearly six years after Jobs unveiled the plans to the Cupertino City Council. The main building — nicknamed the Spaceship thanks to its circular shape — was designed by Lord Norman Foster and is just part of the 175-acre complex. Also on site are a visitors center, a 100,000-square-foot fitness center, secure research and development facilities, two miles of walking paths, and over 9,000 trees. And one more thing: the Steve Jobs Theater, a 1,100-seat auditorium built to host future keynote events and topped by a 20-foot-tall glass cylinder, 165 feet in diameter, and situated on a hill so as to offer the best views of Steve's last creation.

  • E20 House

    Set in a sloping meadow in Pliezhausen, Germany, the E20 House allows its concrete exterior to show through without overwhelming the minimal interior. The home is hexagonal, allowing for a room layout that lends itself to eye-catching reveals. Warm wood floors and cabinets pair with white walls and exposed gray concrete to give the interior a cozy yet distinctly modern feel, while abundant windows let in plenty of natural light while providing views to the outdoors.

  • Dame Of Melba House

    Set on the edge of the Anglesea coastline, the Dame Of Melba House uses carefully selected materials to overcome its salty seaside environment. The exterior is clad in locally sourced timber, meant to slowly weather over time and expose a gray hue. Its top-heavy design allows for a set of cantilevered overhangs, one acting as a carport and the others as decks. Unlike traditional floor plans, the interior is flipped to have the main living area on the second level, while the sleeping quarters reside on the ground floor. This elevated design allows for premium ocean views from the full-height glazing in the kitchen and living room.
