Designed by architect Cristián Izquierdo this remarkable House in Morrillos Chile is made entirely in pinewood. In a seasonal cabin constructed to accommodate up to three couples the exposed expansive pinewood offers a clean verging on sterile environment. And yet the result is both inviting and engaging.
Even on the inside one finds a similar narrative with white shades of gray and wood holding sway. Curated and minimal the open plan living area also contains a state-of-the-art kitchen in white and gray and a dining area that overlooks the rear courtyard and the landscape beyond.
The design of this exquisite holiday home moves away from unnecessary excesses and relies on simplicity of form frugality of material and durability crafted to withstand harsh local weather. At its heart this is simply a large protected veranda that is surrounded by a rainforest!
When Cox Architecture decided to build their new office in Melbourne it was a trip that took them down the less beaten path. Dubbed as ‘’ the new nerve-center of the company’s operations was built to comfortable accommodate individual working spaces for the 75 employees who specializes in departments varying from model-making and desktop publishing to administrative staff and IT support.
It is a curated balance of the natural and the man-made with the central courtyard acting as the common social zone. Flanked by the public and private wings of the house on one side and an outdoor living area along with a series of fruit trees on the other the courtyard is both spacious and secluded.
