At the top level, the residence, the tectonic volume. And the second action: to get the most of the existing views, the residence is distributed under a continuous roof (81 meters), constituted by a reinforced concrete portico.
This portico sets the residence´s built volume. And the residence is distributed under the roof, according the needs of each space: access , recreation area, kitchen, living room, bedrooms. The existing views guide the various openings: from every room one sees the mountains.
The main entrance is marked by a void at the beginning of the portico. From there, different occupations under the cover create the enclosed areas (sauna, kitchen and bedrooms) and the opened ones (porches). These opened spaces are extended over the gallery coverage through a large deck, a pool and garden areas. via
You may or may not like this type of realistic wallpapers, but I’m sure you can appreciate the imagination and the work that went behind all of these designs. There are plenty of versions to choose from, so even the most pretentious buyer can at least be satisfied.

Creative design, simple lines and sharp lines all draw out of concrete is best describing this house-object.
Slit House is located in the historical neighborhood of Nanjing, China.
Although has very contemporary minimalist look it’s in harmony with surroundings. The entire structure, facade and the roof are made of concrete. It’s one of the first concrete buildings in this area. Thanks to such exterior it looks minimalist and modern outside. The interior is mostly done in wood to be more comfortable to live in. There are two connected areas with half floor height difference.
The living area has 2 floor ceiling height while the dining area has only 1.5 floor ceiling height. There aren’t many openings around the house in order to maintain its privacy.

Floating site on the river
This site, where is floating on river and confronted the graceful landscape, was strongly recognized to me as a part of nature, from the first time that I met.
From then, I started to visualize “the architectural nature” as a place of recreation.
Form of site = Form of architecture = Maximum efficiency of landuse
While maximizing the efficiency of landuse, the leaner concrete mass, that cherishes the courtyard where is filled with the water and the greenery, was laid out on this site along the irregular formed site line.
