US firm KieranTimberlake has nestled a home into a rocky outcrop in New York State, with mirrored cladding that reflects the forested landscape and sky (+ slideshow).

Called the Pound Ridge House, the dwelling is situated on a south-facing site that rises over 100 feet (30 meters) as it ascends from a wetland to the top of a ridge. The 33-acre (13-hectare) escarpment is strewn with boulders, trees and remnants of old farm walls. It is located in the town of Pound Ridge in Westchester County, which is about 50 miles (80 kilometres) outside of New York City. "The owners were drawn to the almost magical sense of tranquillity they felt upon their first visit to this heavily forested land, striped with loose-laid fieldstone farm walls from the 19th century," said KieranTimberlake, which is based in Philadelphia. Encompassing 5,250 square feet (487 square meters), the house is nestled into a rocky outcrop located just below the ridge.

Photography is by Peter Aaron at OTTO. A brown cashmere coat, a pair of sand-coloured shoes and a piazza in Rome influenced Note Design Studio's renovation of this 1930s loft apartment in Sweden.

The renovation is the first residential project by the Stockholm studio, which is better known for its furniture and homeware design, including a range of chairs for Spanish brand Sancal, and a curved steel clothing rail. Since its construction in the 1930s, Casa Ljungdahl had undergone multiple renovations. "When it was our turn to renew the apartment our first step was to simplify everything we felt was too much, in terms of dimensions and materials," said Note Design Studio. "The task was to create a relaxed, soft environment and the main interior feature is a dark, low-lying base line that runs like a unifying horizon through the whole apartment.

" Referencing images of a brown coat and some beige-coloured sports shoes, the studio opted for a soft colour palette. "The images were our inspiration," Note's Susanna Wåhlin told Dezeen. When Quinn Architects were designing this house in Los Angeles, a handrail for the stairs was built into the wall, which was then clad in marble.

Photography by Berlyn Photography and Tim Street-Porter. Architecture firm CONTENT, have designed the Kipling Residence, a new home in Houston, Texas.

The description from the designer: The Kipling Residence is a new addition to the Montrose neighborhood of Houston just north of the Menil grounds. Designed for a growing family of five, it allows for generous open family zones oriented to large glass walls facing the street and a courtyard pool. The courtyard also creates a buffer between the master suite and the children’s play and bedroom zones. Fixed wood slats provide privacy on the first floor while a large sliding second floor panel allows the street balcony to exchange privacy control with the study.

This zinc-clad mews house in London by Paul Archer Design looks like a two-storey home from the front, but actually contains four storeys inside (+ slideshow).

Day House by Paul Archer Design was built for a couple who previously lived in an apartment and wanted more space. It replaces a 1970s house in Islington, London, and sits within a terrace of mews homes that feature a mixture of architectural styles. "The owners bought the house knowing they were going to do some work, but it was only when we realised the extent of the work needed that it became clear we should replace it," architect Richard Gill told Dezeen.

Rotterdam architect Antonia Reif has renovated and extended a modest 1960s bungalow, creating a two-storey living room and a generous bedroom that both open out to the garden (+ slideshow).

Situated next to a dyke on the outskirts of the city, the residence was originally built to accommodate a couple with no children. It is now home to a larger family, so Antonia Reif was tasked with doubling its floor area. "The new owners have two children and the house was too small for them," she told Dezeen. The existing property's main orientation was towards the street and the rear facade was predominantly closed, which meant the connection with the large garden at the rear was not optimised. Because of its position on top of the dyke, the back of the house already dropped down to a lower storey at the level of the garden, so minimal excavations were required to extend it. C'est au milieu des sous-bois longeant l'estuaire de la Cornouaille que le propriétaire de cette maison a déniché, un beau jour, le terrain de ses rêves.

Lui qui voulait une simple cabane en bois se plaît alors à imaginer une construction estivale en totale harmonie avec la nature. Mais, en découvrant ce site exceptionnel, l'architecte Arnaud Lacoste, de l'agence Lode Architecture, conçoit un projet plus ambitieux, celui d'une architecture contemporaine, discrète et parfaitement intégrée à son environnement. Le propriétaire est immédiatement séduit par les lignes de ce parallélépipède rectangle simplement posé en pente douce, vêtu de bois et de verre et coiffé d'un toit plat.
