Bjarke Ingels Group. Widlund House by Claesson Koivisto Rune. Claesson Koivisto Rune have designed the Widlund House in Sandvik, Öland, Sweden.
Description from the designers: This house is like a funnel of light, space and sea views. The location is the west coast of the Baltic island of Öland. The white concrete box is “corsetted” in the middle, creating slightly sheared wall and roof angles. This gives the house both its direction and character, while also marking the difference between the rear private two-storey bedroom part and the communal double ceiling-height front part.Precast concrete is perhaps not the most common choice for a private house at this scale, but was ideal for achieving the ultimate precision in manufacturing tolerance and colour/finish.The concrete is not painted or surface-pigmented but solid white, which gives it a wonderful glow.
Modern House in Tempe, Arizona. A stylish addition to the landscape in Tempe, Arizona, this modern house is a stunning site-specific design that seamlessly blends art and entertainment.
Work of talented architects from Chen + Suchart Studio, the linear structure completely integrates with the surrounding scenery. With black steel beams and an elegant wooden facade that charms from every angle you look at it, the custom house also manages to “bury” a small pool where you can hide from the hot sun.
