Sekiya Masato of Planet Creations' reveals its latest project; Lifted House IV, a private residence in Hyogo Japan:
The residence was built on a unique site "which was sloped like a horse's back" and is surrounded by hills that turned out to be the inspiration for the completed design. The ground level consists of a private study, a guest room and a cloakroom. The bedroom, living/dining room, kitchen and bathroom were then placed on the 1st floor of the residence.
The Casa Balint is located in Valencia, Spain, and was born from Fran Silvestre Arquitectos' designs. The two-story home is focused on an open plan living space at the center, where the kitchen, patio and staircase all conjoin. Check it out in the gallery below along with a video. Read more
