1—As House by G&A Evripiotis | Paros, Greece

On the beautiful hillside of the island of Paros, Greece sits 'As House.'  The concept proposes a collection of archaic volumes and a reinterpretation of the Cycladic Vernacular Architecture. Private and communal areas intercross each other, framing the impeccable observatory towards the mesmerising views of the Aegean Sea. Secluded courtyards, covered verandas and wide-open terraces complete the whole structure making Cycladic Architecture more liveable.

2—Dune House by Ruben Muedra Estudio de Arquitectura | Olivia, Spain

Amongst beautiful scenery, fine white sand adjacent to the Mediterranean Sea and tucked into the coastline dunes sits Dune House. Built 80 years ago by a Parisian Mayor, Dune is a pre-existing house of a rectangular shape with a hip roof and a large enclosed courtyard facing the southeast. It is a classic interior built around a central hall running from east to west that distributes the bedrooms on either side. The house is slightly elevated above the land and appears to assert its influence over the surroundings.

3—Alpine Terrace House by Fearon Hay Architects | Queenstown, New Zealand

Designed with a purpose to create a sanctuary that embraces its alpine surrounds, one that could engage with the view of the mountain ranges from every perspective. All of which offer a sense of protection from the harsh extremes of the alpine terrace. This clever concept projects four rectangular building forms encompassing a central courtyard that all capture its picturesque landscape and allows for refuge during harsher weather conditions.

4—Villa Schatzlmayr by Philipp Architekten | Passau, Germany

Villa Schatzlmayr situates itself on a gentle slope with awe-inspiring open views of the meadows, and the Danube river which meets the sparkling sky.  The Villa Schatzlmayr is a three-part collection with a total of 760 m2 of living and usable space, which unfolds to the landscape with uninterrupted floor-to-ceiling glazing. Every section of the home espouses its surrounding panoramas fusing the outdoors with the indoors—priceless rooms with a view from every aspect of the house.

5—Till House by WMR Arquitectos | Navidad, Chile

Amongst a coastline of cliffs in Navidad, Chile dwells Till House. Built from wooden modules, Till House exposes the skeleton of the beams and columns surrounded by windows that make up the building. Creating an undisrupted view and at the same time drawing the outside into the interior of the home. The whole structure captures breathtaking views of the pacific ocean and seaside cliffs that inspire the viewer's eye and makes every day feel like a holiday.
