Thorp Houses, Two Beach House, designed by Pete Bossley Architects. This project represents the rare possibility of designing two houses on adjacent sites. The buildings are similar in form and massing but differenet in plan and with subtle variations of materials and colour to offer individuality.

Each house is approximately 500sqm, stretched along the relatively narrow sites from road to sea. Each has three two storey elements linked by narrow circulation routes. this strategy ensures light and spaciousness infiltrate all spaces within the building and creates intimate light-filled courtyards landscaped with flowing water and sparse planting.

A rich variety of spaces exist within the buildings, ranging from double-height living areas open to the sea views, to more internalised lounges nestled into falling land at the more road end of the sites.

Annie Residence, Beautiful House Design With Two Pavilions, designed by Bercy Chen Studio. Located in Austin, Texas, United States. The design was greatly influenced by different regions and cultures. Both the use of the roof as an outdoor living space and the shading devices are derived from Moorish architecture. The body of water and the spatial continuity between inside and outside was inspired by Asian architecture. while the structural transparency of the volumes and the minimalist aspect of the interior was derived from Japanese pavilions.

The house is constructed of a modular steel frame. The frame is infilled with prefab thermasteel panels to minimize construction on-site waste. The structural frame is exposed, showing the construction process and articulating the house’s facades. The repetitive modular method, as well as the prefabrication allowed for greater efficiency during construction.

The house was built for two families in Austin and therefore is split into two living areas. The house consists of two pavilions connected by a glass hallway.
