New York based completed Deep Point Road House, a renovation and extension of a 1950s ranch located in Montross, Virginia, USA.

According to the architects, the updated house needed to take advantage of its beautiful surroundings, defined mainly by two converging creeks. The owners wanted to enlarge the house while capitalizing on the sweeping vistas and light that is reflected off the water.

A den extension was added to the north side of the house, in order to capture views and counterbalance the original, south-facing volume of the site. The social core of the house is the living room, which is “wrapped” in floor-to-ceiling windows.

“The open plan of the kitchen, living and dining rooms is punctuated by a two-sided fireplace, which separates dining and living areas,” the architects explained. “Skylights on either side allow light to bounce off the surface of the chimney volume. The L-shaped kitchen has a 12-foot-long island, topped in Namibian white marble.”

The master bedrooms are linked to scenic wooden decks. A stairway leads the way up to the rooftop garden, where lounge furniture and planted rows of herbs make for a relaxing refuge. Information provided by BFDO Architects; photography courtesy of Francis Dzikowski/OTTO.

It’s the 150th birthday anniversary of American architect Frank Lloyd Wright and some of his architectural pieces of history are up for sale. We get to do a virtual open house and peak inside four Frank Lloyd Wright homes for sale.

All of Wright’s homes were designed using his theory of “organic architecture.” He wanted his homes to strike the harmonious balance between architecture and nature. The best example of his work is Fallingwater, built in 1935.

and  recently announced the rebirth of “La Hacienda Creative,” a music studio in Montreal, Canada. The designers succeeded in paying homage to the center’s historic past while envisioning a vibrant future.

Upon entering, visitors are welcomed into a large open reception space that gives off living room vibes. Wall-mounted instruments serve as design elements that help convey the spirit of La Hacienda to every guest that enters. The large windows add to the vibrancy of the space, and along with the communal sink outside the washroom, help convey an atmosphere of sharing and connection. The kitchen area, with its large island, is designed specifically to host events. 
On the other side of the entrance is the Satellite Room, named for its historic role as the birthplace of Canada’s first satellite. Bleacher seating allows teams to work in a reflective space away from their desks. The space also promotes open-air meetings and musical performances, as does the open staircase.

Under the mezzanine, the repairs and transformations of instruments are carried out in an open workshop. Once dark and gloomy, the MXMA team transformed the space into a bright and lively place through the integration of new windows overlooking a terrace to the south.

In addition to providing an abundance of natural light, these windows offer stunning views of the historic building, also visible from the bleachers, like a window on the past of a great era for the sound industry. Information provided by Newsam Construction + MXMA; photo credits: .

The creative team at  completed The House with the Gabion, a serene getaway surrounded by green valleys in Lonavala, India. The project makes the most of the scenic Pawna Lake while addressing the living needs of the owners.

“This country home is defined by an eight foot thick Gabion wall, which acts as a spine, from north to south,” the architects explained. “The break in the Gabion becomes the point of entry into a densely planted courtyard that frames a phenomenal view.”

The interiors are bright and spacious with charming rustic elements exuding their warmth. Open showers, high ceilings, terrazzo en-suites and brass lamps add to the overall breezy atmosphere.

“The infinity pool sort of drifts away from the veranda as a reflective mirror plane, pointing to the peak on the opposite shore,” the designers added.

This is a high precipitation area, so a full-length rain collector was installed. The system ensures that water shed by the roof is tamed and redirected away from the veranda. A perfectly manicured lawn surrounds the property and creates a seamless visual connection with the neighboring hills. Photos courtesy of
