Nestled in the bustling frenzy of Sao Paulo, Brazil, the GR House looks like anything but a congested living space located in a populous urban setting. This luxury home designed and built by Bernardes Jacobsen Architecture is engulfed in a lush green private park that soothes your senses and transports you into an atmosphere that is akin the thick Amazonian jungles. The interiors are open, stylish and crafted in line with the modern minimalist trends. Extensive use of glass, white marble and timber ensures plenty of natural lighting and a home that blends seamlessly with its surroundings.
West Chin, his wife Roseann Repetti and his team of designers like to give the rooms and homes that they conjure up and create a sensuous and sexy look that is in line with the modern minimalist trends. Opting for the sweeping and untainted white interiors, sleek furniture and a sophisticated space-age look, the interiors here use aesthetic accessories and dramatic lighting
to accentuate their beauty. With simple straight lines, contrasting shades and a philosophy that preaches ‘less is more’ the designs of West Chin are perfect for a world that craves for such uncomplicated designs.
The good folks from Japanese studio Suppose Design Office are behind this amazing residential project in Sakuragawa, Japan. A spacious interior with a limited floor plan, the minimalist house covers a small 50sqm plot with a split-level layout that is spread over three floors. Featuring a massive bay-window to overlook the nearby park, lots of wood furnishings, large spaces and a bunch of white stairs. And although we can’t see any rooms, doors, separating walls or furniture, it still looks like a nice modern addition to a crowding environment where space has become a real commodity.
Daniel Libeskind’s recent project, a series of signature prefabricated homes, is a drastic change from his usual commissions. Although a smaller project (5,500 square foot), the residence strongly speaks his language of design with drastic angles, strong geometries and seamless transitions between spaces. In this ever-growing age of prefab dominance, Libeskind’s villas will be able to be shipped to almost any location in the world within months, and will be assembled on site by a team of experts within weeks.

Designed by Nunatak Architectes, this amazingly unique house is located in a picturesque valley of Switzerland. Inspired by a mountain, this house is like a huge inclined block – sloping roofs
epitomize mountain slopes and the lovely grey color of the house blends in perfectly with the hilly terrain. The most interesting thing is that some walls are made of simple stones that simply gives the entire house a more “eco-friendly” feel.
