AN ANGULAR FUTURISTIC HOUSE IN GEORGIA
The Decatur, Georgia, residence belonging to two book authors is an angular exercise in creating a dynamic structure. "It has energy and does not feel heavy or is static," says architect Staffan Svenson of Atlanta-based firm Dencity Design. Inside, Svenson divided the house into seven levels and introduced a vibrant color palette and rich material program at the residents' request. The resulting modern live/work abode gives the owners a sense of adventure as they traverse the spaces. >>
 
   
 
TORONTO'S TETRIS INSPIRED HOME
We have all played the game “Tetris” at least once in our lives. We were mesmerized by the magic of geometry and rewarded by our efficiency. For rzlbd Tetris is not just a game of block arrangement and fast performance, but it is a quest of effective design. If a designer of space was to be structured as Tetris blocks, there would be virtually zero wasted space within a building.  >>
  A PREFAB CABIN IN NORWAY
A small prefab cabin in Norway is offering an alternative view on the concept of luxury. Large sliding glass doors allow daylight to fill the living room. Smaller windows are placed in the kitchen area and the sleeping loft. The exterior is clad in heart pine which needs very little up-keep and is known for its strength and hardness.  >>
