Like how a skin protects the body, The Tembusu functions as a living host which shelters its inhabitants from the environment. ARC Studio’s high-rise, high-density housing of 337 homes is enlivened by the “living façade” which involved threads of nature around the columns interweaving with the architecture to create an organic exterior bringing the landscape closer to the residential units. It also creates an impression that the landscape drapes over two sky links, creating an even more intimate experience with nature.
A village housing takes a humble attitude and offers a new perspective in defining the domestic and vernacular landscape of Shanghai's suburb. Contrary to a utopian model of commercially driven architecture, House G is an atypical mode of rural intervention that it is an architecture designed for a local family, rather than for investors.

There is nothing barn like about this farm house. Resting on a rolling field, this modern rural country home outside Toronto, a project by Trevor McIvor Architect, was inspired by the stone walls that were used to separate farmer’s fields. Stouffville Residence which spans over 465 square meters, is grounded in the earth while being cantilevered over a vast landscape.
Designing a restaurant is not new for Taiwan based architect Ken Lo of Chain 10 Architecture. However, in the design of Green Isle, a third restaurant of the successful Tan Zuo Mali chain, Lo knew he had to think out-of-the-box to go further than his two previous designs for the chain. The concept of dining and green spaces needed to be rehashed in a fresh perspective in view that Kaohsiung residents who are largely environmentally-conscious, hardly afford the time to appreciate nature.
Looking like a pretty stack of lacy boxes, the house is located in lucknow city india.
