Located on broad sweeping ranch lands overlooking a lake, Gambel Oaks Ranch was designed to blend into its surroundings and is not visible from any public roadways.

Following natural contours, a low-profile roof nestles the predominately one-story home into the scrub oak canopy.

Entrance to the site is choreographed to slowly reveal the residence in a series of glimpses through the trees, culminating in an arrival court that constrains panoramic views. From inside the home, views build from interior spaces to distant sights: pool terrace, pasture, far-off lake, mountain peaks.

Stone was used in layers reflective of the local geology: one color matched to the distant mountains, the other caged in gabion baskets from site rock excavated for building foundations.

Private areas within three distinct Corten boxes are organized as a family compound to contain the master suite, guest suite, and garage. Public gathering spaces defined by the Corten forms flow effortlessly outdoors for entertaining.

Modern Oceanfront House is All Concrete, Wood, Glass, and Views

Entrenched in an Atlantic Forest reserve in the coast of the São Paulo state, this modern oceanfront house welcomes the sea view and the surrounding wild landscape. Installed on a steep slope, its structure can be defined in two parts: a monolithic concrete base supporting the garage and the pool and, on top of it, a modular wooden structure, profiled by a glass frame.

Apartment in Gothenburg: an Oasis of Calmness with a Special Charm

Placed in the center of Gothenburg, at the upper level of a classic building since 1929, this apartment has a special charm due to the balcony built inside it, which gives the impression of a two levels home.

Three Black Timber Pavilions Connected by a Masonry Wall

The house sits firmly along a winding ridgeline on the outskirts of the small township of Fish Creek. The home surrounds itself in a highly textured brickwork wall in response to its exposed position to strong local winds and a nearby country road.
