five houses where I would like to be confined

What a strange period we are facing. With all that time at home, I have way more time for myself, and I thought it would be an opportunity to write here, but guess what… laziness and lack of creativity got in the way. But I certainly take time to dream, and escape everyday life as I can. I recently can’t get out of my head those five beautiful houses, where I would like to be confined.

It’s definitely a house where I could live. The area around the house looks so quiet, everything seems so peaceful. About the house, I really like the work of Saarinen and Eames here. The different windows add structure and character to the house, and I love that such a simple shape as a rectangle could be so complete, complexe and feel no empty at all.

I’m speechless. Really, how amazing is that house? I’m fond of the volumes, the large terrace, followed by some steps, and that pool, so simple. A concrete box, perfectly integrated in the jungle, an oasis of calm.

The Stahl house is an iconic house of the “Case Study Houses” program launched by John Entenza (editor in chief of the journal Arts & Architecture). The design of this house is juste remarkable.

What really attracts me with that house is the feeling of being surrounded by nature. Imagine how great it must be to lay on that bed, floating over the trees.
