Overlooking Lake Maggiore, this minimalist single family residence designed by Wespi de Meuron is situated in Ranzo, Switzerland. Description by Wespi de Meuron The project works with references to the historical architectural culture of the place and interprets them anew. The traditional natural grey plaster of the façade associated with the simple cube of the modern house detracts itself from a precise temporal assignment. This house is closely linked to the historical paths from the lake to the village. The terrace with a mountainside courtyard wall, a long bench and natural stone paving has Mediterranean character.

La Maison Beaumont by Henri Cleinge Architecte. Canadian architect Henri Cleinge built a house for himself in Montreal with concrete walls inside and out. Seen from the front entrance, La Maison Beaumont comprises two concrete volumes of two storeys each. Architect and homeowner Henri Cleinge raised one of the concrete volumes on a Corten steel base to create an entrance on the ground floor and an extra storey at the top. Corten steel was also used to define the window frames and parts of the exterior walls. The walls are exposed both outside and inside, so rigid insulation was placed inside the concrete during the pouring process.
