With a mid-century form and modern design, the White Shack isn’t your average beach shack. The home caters to a family of surfers and their 1962 Thunderbird Convertible with a series of modular zones that can flip, expand, and rotate for their changing needs. This Australian surf retreat is comprised of three bedrooms, a bathroom, a master ensuite with private deck, and a kids play zone that doubles as a recording studio and wash house. Surrounded by glazed sliding doors, the main living area, consisting of an open kitchen, dining, and living room, expands out to a covered terrace for outdoor grilling and dining.

Located just outside of Mexico City, the MA House was completely designed around its surrounding environment. The home’s stone facade was influenced by its local availability, as well as its low-cost and maintenance-free nature. The material also makes its way into the interior, complimented by floors, ceilings, and fixtures cast from concrete. At the heart of the home, the three forms that make up the structure meet to create a pair of covered patios overlooking a large courtyard where occupants can take advantage of the area’s warm climate and lush scenery. The sloping nature of these volumes pair with north and south-facing glazing, allowing for full views of the mountain landscape, while concealing neighboring houses to the east and west.
