H2 Cape House

Located on the French Island of Corsica, the H2 Cape House uses a low profile and natural materials to blend into its Mediterranean setting. A green roof paired with slats of red cedar cladding infuse with the coast's lush vegetation, also allowing sunlight to filter through the home's central terrace. The expansive single-story design makes way for a number or outdoor areas — including two swimming pools — to enjoy the seaside surroundings, while extensive internal glazing maximize views for the interior. A private beach outlines the exterior, along with a small port for ocean access to the property.

  • VDB House

    Built along the banks of the Leie river just downstream from the Belgium city of Ghent, the VDB House is designed around the needs and wants of its bachelor owner. The main floor is focused on the river, with the kitchen and indoor living spaces encased mostly with glass, opening to the pool area and pool house. Upstairs is the master bedroom and bath with private access to the rooftop terrace, as well as two other bed and bath rooms. Downstairs the vibe goes from airy modern getaway to underground night club, complete with dark woods, a bar with a window into the pool as its backdrop, a DJ booth, dedicated cabinets for wine and cigars, and a display area for the owner's car collection.

  • Monte Rosa Hut

    Inspired by medieval keeps, the Monte Rosa Hut is a multi-story shelter in an isolated mountain setting. Located in the shadow of the Matterhorn, it boasts five floors, with communal areas on the bottom, sleeping areas above, and a ribbon of windows that wraps around the building, following both the path of the sun and the spiral stairway, letting in natural warmth while providing outstanding views.
