Avocado Acres House

Influenced by LA's Case Study homes and the work of Joseph Eichler, the Avocado Acres House is an environmentally-friendly mid-century throwback located just blocks from the California coast. Its dining, kitchen, and living areas are open to both each other and the central courtyard, made more dramatic by the sloped roof and semi-circular cutout. On the other side lies the master bedroom with ensuite, while the home's other two bedrooms share a bath and are located down the adjoining hallway. Natural wood ceilings, floors, and cabinets help offset the industrial feel of the bare concrete walls, and plentiful glazing lets in natural light while helping to merge the interior with the outside.

  • Gapahuk Prefab Cabin

    Named after the Norwegian word for a simple shelter, the Gapahuk Prefab Cabin uses its twisting roof to adapt to nearly any site. The cabin is built to maximize social area, with the large open kitchen, living, and dining space taking up the bulk of the 100 square meter layout. Three bedrooms, a bathroom, and storage comprise the rest of the enclosed area, while an overhang in one corner creates a large patio. The roof design is also solar-friendly for off-grid installations, and the simple wooden structure and cladding allow materials to be locally sourced.

  • Infinity House

    Perched atop a hill in northern Norway, the Infinity House uses a series of large apertures in its rectangular concrete form to maximize its views of the surrounding mountains and the Norwegian Sea. The interior of the superstructure is primarily open, with the living room, kitchen, and bedroom by an oversized bookcase on one end and a black box containing the bathroom on the other. Inside the box, there's a hidden staircase that leads up to the 21m infinity pool that makes up the roof, with a resting bath on one side, and a swimming land overlooking the water on the other. A restrained interior palette allows the colors of the outdoors to shine.
