Cantilevered terrace adjoins townhouses overhauled by Mario Cucinella

Located in the medieval hillside town of Peccioli, situated between Pisa and Florence, Palazzo Senza Tempo was built as a response to the local government's push for new cultural programmes and built heritage. The centre occupies a number of renovated and repurposed 14th-century townhouses above a steep slope, as well as a new two-storey structure with a cantilevered plaza that protrudes from the side of the hill. "The redevelopment works as a bridge between the historical memory, which characterized these buildings, and its future, a civic and cultural centre for the town of Peccioli, the entire Valdera, and the thousands of tourists visiting each year this extraordinary open-air museum," Mario Cucinella Architects told Dezeen.

"Peccioli is a real laboratory", said Mario Cucinella. Architects Apartment / Blockstudio. Developers: ES5 builds are disabled during development to take advantage of 2x faster build times.

Located off the Avenue de Saint-Mandé in Paris' twelfth district, the building was created for the French real estate company Gecina on a plot of land that sits above a car park and is enclosed by a block of flats from the 1970s.

The former concrete courtyard at the heart of the block has been landscaped and planted with ferns, resinous trees and ground-cover plants, among which the four-storey building was built.

Each apartment measures 40 square metres.

LIFE micro-apartments in Seoul form "blank canvas for tenants" Interior designer Ian Lee has lined the walls of the LIFE micro-apartments in South Korea with birch wood to offer tenants pared-back spaces that they can personalise. Located in Seoul's Gangnam District, the apartments form part of a 16-storey co-living building for young adults, developed by co-working-space provider Fastfive. The block contains a total of 140 rooms, which vary between 16 and 23 square metres in size, alongside shared living areas that Vancouver-based Lee also designed.

Lee's goal for the LIFE apartments was to create deliberately simple, timeless interiors that were visually uncluttered. While helping to distract from the small size of the rooms, this offers tenants the opportunity to create homely, private spaces with their own furniture and belongings.

American studio MW Works has converted and refurbished a large beachside apartment on Ocean Drive in Miami, Florida, using tropical hardwood and sand-coloured plaster. The studio knocked together two units in a new high-rise building to create a home for a family of six relocating from Seattle. Materials were chosen to make the most of the quality of light and views of the seashore. "The irregular surface of the plaster highlights the changing quality of light throughout the day and lends a softness to private spaces," said MW Works. The Ocean Drive apartment's five bedrooms are placed around the perimeter and decorated in a paler palette, while the kitchen and dining areas in the middle are darker and moodier. "Bedroom volumes are treated in pale, sandy tones of hand-troweled plaster reflecting natural light deep into the floor plate," said the studio.

Tokyo's Nagatachō Apartment is designed to be a "visual feast" Hong Kong's Imperfect Residence embraces the values of wabi-sabi. NC Design & Architecture has applied an array of naturally flawed materials throughout this Hong Kong apartment, which has been designed in accordance with the Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi. NC Design & Architecture was initially asked by Imperfect Residence's owners to create a highly functional space that looks beautiful and ages well. The Hong Kong-based studio decided to look to wabi-sabi – an ancient Japanese philosophy that accepts transience and imperfection, and celebrates natural objects and processes. This has been translated to the apartment through the use of natural materials like wood and marble, as well as "imperfect" finishes like oxidised bronze and textured plaster.

"The residence inspires to accept the beauty of imperfection and incompleteness, setting the residents free from the everyday," said the studio's founder, Nelson Chow.

Flat in Barbican's Shakespeare Tower is infused with Japanese details. A client's strong ties to Japan informed the interiors of this Barbican apartment, which has been overhauled by Takero Shimazaki Architects.

The apartment is within Shakespeare Tower, one of three high-rise buildings on London's Barbican estate – a housing complex completed by architecture firm Chamberlin, Powell and Bon in 1976. Its two owners had moved in after several years of living in Japan, during which they accrued an "extraordinary" knowledge of the country's culture and language. South London-based practice Takero Shimazaki Architects used this as a starting point for its overhaul of the apartment. It worked to achieve a delicate balance between Japanese aesthetics and the brutalist style of the estate's buildings. "For our inspiration, we looked towards many of the early modernist Japanese architects, who were dealing with similar issues of identity when European modernism was entering Japan at rapid speed," said the practice.
