Text description provided by the architects. Reflects is a winner of an architect-led design build competition for a temporary "treehouse" structure that became a centerpiece of the Cleveland Botanical Garden's 2015 summer show. The brief called for an innovative treehouse design that reconnected guests of all ages to the outdoors through interactive experiences that reveal the physical, emotional, and developmental benefits of staying engaged with outdoor environments. The chosen site was the Secret Garden, a walled court with no trees surrounded by

Text description provided by the architects. The site is located at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, with fantastic views over the Championship Parkstone Golf course. Mature maritime pine trees and boundary screening ensure that the site feels part of the golf course with optimum privacy.  Although the site has a number of trees, the sun moves around the site with a variety of areas bathed in light at different times through the day. The design explores a mixture of floor levels, views and settings to maximize the usability of the site, whilst enriching the occupant’s lifestyle.

Text description provided by the architects. The artists’ colony in Ahrenshoop is situated on the narrow peninsula between Fischland and Darss. This sparsely populated area on the Baltic Sea, with its dunes and expansive meadows and fields, offers a wealth of landscapes. Ever since the colony was founded in the late nineteenth century, it has attracted artists whose work and homes reflect a deep connection to the landscape and the region’s building tradition. An art museum was to be dedicated to these artists and the history of their colony. To this end a winding plot of land at the entrance to Ahrenshoop was made available along with a small construction budget.

Text description provided by the architects.

Although designed for a dynamic 70-year-old, it is suited for a family of 4.

The semi-detached house had to respect the volume of the neighbouring house, constructed 20 years earlier. To compensate for the rather low cornice that had to be respected, we made cut-outs in the roof surface to allow daylight to enter the bedrooms on the first and second floor.
