Introducing Atrium House, an impressive two-story home located in the capital of Hungary, Budapest. Tamás Szén Molnár, a renowned designer, created a contemporary masterpiece in 2022 with a combination of light and clean spaces.
The team had to make significant architectural changes to make the building lighter, such as breaking through the ceiling between the two floors to create an imposing atrium in the middle, featuring a custom-made lighting system. In order to accommodate the client’s lifestyle, a room was created on the same floor as the parents’ suite, making it possible for the children to have separate rooms in the future.
Set in Brasília, Brazil, the Couri House is a single-story house designed by ARQBR Arquitetura e Urbanismo in 2019.
Located in a residential condominium, the 713 sq.m plot features a solitary pequi native tree, legally protected and very representative of the Central Brazilian region of the Cerrado. The project conciliates this context with the family’s desire to build a small house with a shaded terrace, whilst obtaining the largest space of green area possible. The strategy adopted was to design the plan in the shape of a ribbon that develops through the plot, adjusting itself to its perimeter and creating voids to create living and leisure patios that promote contact with the gardens and the neighboring green area.

Constructed with regional materials and a warm color palette, the house respects the local environment while creating an inviting atmosphere.
Introducing Pa.te.os, a set of guesthouses located in Portugal designed by Aires Mateus & Associados in 2020.
These guesthouses are integrated into the Primosfera landscape like ruins lost in time and designed to take full advantage of the nature surrounding them. The walls, as boundaries, evoke houses and the unique matter used to draw the enclosures creates tension between them with the spaces generating openings and negatives in these presences.
