The imposing Coastlands House was especially developed by Carver + Schicketanz for a retired couple in Big Sur, California, USA. The majestic oaks located on the site dominate the neighboring landscape and direct the views towards the Pacific coast to the West. According to the architects, “a massive stone base connects the structure to the uphill slope, contrasting with the lighter steel and glass elements of the home. The large glass stacking sliders open to the patios beyond – providing great cross ventilation and a seamless connection to the outdoors“.

Sustainability was a major factor to consider when building the project: “Most of the finish materials are reclaimed and the 4.4kW photovoltaic system was designed to generate 90% of the home’s power usage. A warm but neutral color palette was chosen to complement the natural building materials and juxtapose the brilliant blues of the ocean and sky and the vivid greens of the garden and hills beyond.” The interiors are imposing and bright, enriched by the owner’s world class art collection and a few special antique artifacts.

An example of a huge success is Heneghan Peng Architects’ Giant’s Causeway Visitors’ Centre in Antrim, Northern Ireland. Using the large difference in level across the site, the architects created two folds in the landscape. Bold, but not conflicting with the rather bleak natural environment, these folds draw all the man-made areas together and create one fitting man-made break in the natural landscape. In the words of the architects themselves, There is no longer a building and a landscape, but building becomes landscape and the landscape itself remains spectacular and iconic

Inside the school, a wall made of cross-laminated timber separates classrooms from the main corridor, providing a space for storage and study. With very little to work with, the architects have managed to create a building that is much more than just the sum of all of its parts
