We welcomed summer this week with a slew of great projects. We saw a lot of private houses and villas (but also some museums and schools) from all corners of the world, each of which look primed for summer. Nearly all of them have spectacular views, extravagant landscaping, and, best of all minimalist pools. We thought we’d count down our top five of the last few days, so dig in, make yourself a bowl of ice cream, and scroll away. Continue.
On we go to Etura, Spain to visit this striking concrete house. The project’s most formal feature is, of course, the cantilevered volume projecting over the hillside on which the home is delicately perched. On top there’s a surrealist lawn that stretches out into the lush landscape beyond–the perfect place to picnic on a warm, breezy summer day.
