A far-reaching water feature flows through Preston Hollow House, where it washes away the borders between inside and out. The slender stream trickles through the home, interrupted only by terrace walkways and a soothing waterfall beside the entryway, before concluding at a large swimming pool. Designed by Specht Architects, this 8826 square foot home in Dallas, United States, also features a remarkable floating pavilion roof design. The flat canopy appears to levitate weightlessly over the main living spaces and peripheral terraces. Corrugated concrete walls solidly shield the residence from the busy street, making nearby houses imperceivable. Sliding glass panels create open, light-filled rooms with wide views of plant-filled courtyards.

Replacing one existing house and a warehouse, this large family home was made to complement the tropical lifestyle of Kerala, India. Created by The Design Room, the architecture sympathetically retains the native trees of the 600 square metre site, and encloses several of them within a central courtyard design. The built spaces branch out from this open-air heart of the home, which achieves a cosy connection. The open plan layout was guided by the humid climatic conditions of the region. The benefits of cross ventilation, passive cooling, and natural lighting satisfied the vision for an energy-efficient home. Outside, the vegetation contrasts vibrantly with the visual heat of iron-rich red laterite stone.
