Echo Park Bungalow

Perched on a Los Angeles hillside, the Echo Park Bungalow is a mixture of vintage architecture and modern design. From the front, the home retains its simple 1920s form while the rear displays a contemporary new extension. Internally, the former crawl space was expanded to create a ground level that houses the main living area. A saw-tooth staircase joins the two floors where blonde wood trim and polished concrete floors create a minimal palette. Painted blue, the steel frame outlines a series of six cubes. This new addition is made up of two glazed areas that are extensions of interior spaces, with the remaining structure serving as a two-story covered terrace that allows for views of the outdoor garden.

  • House JRv2

    Situated on the edge of a pond north of Poznan, Poland, House JRv2 uses its site's natural slope to its advantage. From the road, the larch-clad garage is nearly all that's visible, supported by a concrete structure underneath. Enclosed within the latter are two wings, one for the master bedroom, and another for the living, dining, and kitchen areas. A large deck connects the living area with the bedroom, while a guest bedroom is set off to the side, underneath the garage. Floor-to-ceiling windows provide plenty of natural light, as well as views of the surrounding water, trees, and fields.

  • Invermark House

    Set below Table Mountain in Cape Town, the Invermark House bears the influence of two iconic homes. Architect Gilbert Colyn designed the home for himself in the late '60s, drawing inspiration from Mies van der Rohe's Farnsworth House and Phillip Johnson's Glass House. It fell into disrepair before being purchased by architect Stefan Antoni in 2013. His firm, SAOTA, returned the building to its original state while enhancing it by removing unnecessary structure and screens, adding to the open feel of the largely glass-walled house. Outside, the swimming pool was moved from one side of the house to the other to maximize privacy, making way for a secluded family garden on the mountain side.
