Using pinewood in this smart residential project Jersey City-based Jeff Jordan Architects created a well-ordered bright and spacious interior. The pinewood’s visual impact is both soothing and serene. As a result the project offers a clear-cut example of pine’s efficacy in creating clean modern and aesthetic spaces.

Located on a vast 280 acre farm in the town of Pennsylvania this modern farmhouse blends simplicity of design with comfort energy-efficiency and smart architecture that responds to the specific needs of the site. Passive solar heating and cooling techniques play a major part in shaping the family home as rolling sunshades and screens were used to shape the chic white residence.
Set on the idyllic Sunshine Coast of Queensland and on the edge of the protected Noosa National Park the is a place where the landscape becomes the most defining feature of the interior. Designed by James Russell Architect the house is more like a series of vast pavilions expansive verandas and lovely courtyards that are carefully covered and protected using a large shade cloth.
The lush green forest around the residence is left largely untouched and a sensitive approach to building the house ensured that damage of construction was as minimal as possible.
