This is the Yarra House designed by Leeton Pointon Architects and Susan Pointon Architects in Melbourne, Australia. It uses a very restrained collection of finish materials (concrete, stone, hardwood and drywall) to maximum effect. For more images, click on the photographs.

This beach house was designed by architect Marcio Kogan for a waterfront site near Paraty, just outside Rio de Janeiro. It immediately evokes the work of fellow Brazilian Oscar Niemeyer and modernist Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, the strong horizontality a form recently put to good use for the Warapuru Resort and residences at Itacaré, in Brazil’s Bahia region.

Lastly, this little gem is a wooden extension to an existing brick home just outside Gent in Belgium. The work of Wim Goes Architectuur, it brings to mind the traditional covered bridge.
