If one only relied on Lao Tzu's claim â€œThe excellence of a dwelling is in its site,â€ all would be said in regard to this Residence. The site at The Ridges (former Howard Hughes property) is a front line promontory affording arguably the best panoramic view of the Strip, desert, and mountains in Las Vegas. And then there are the gardens: carefully landscaped with a desert palette, but functional with greensward, fruit trees, herb garden and specimen plantings, each selected to be draught tolerant and environmentally compatible. Yet this is just the
Alto de Pinheiros
Sao Paolo, BRZ
The roof, a sinuous slab flat, and a curved volume of the rooms, sets up a T plan that defines the project. The house inserts itself and stands out in the original landscape of Burle Marx, and at the same time, the nature is emphasized by it. Niemeyer uses nature as a design element, as well as the slab, the slender tubular pillars and as transparent glasses of black frames. The flat slab defines a social area with toilet, and a doorway below a circular dining room with connects the kitchen. A sinuous ramp links social to private, where the volume of cobogó of the suites meets the flat slab. Two American suites? (how to translade) and a master suite are defined by a hallway with zenithal

The Wiley House
218 Sleepy Hollow Road, New Canaan, CT
One of the stars of New Canaan's legacy of mid-century modernism, the Wiley House, designed by Philip Johnson in the early 1950s, was restored and expanded by Roger Ferris + Partners. Of the six houses Philip Johnson designed in New Canaan, Connecticut, the Wiley house is the only one that contains a singular glass pavilion to rival the volume of his architectural masterpiece, the Glass House. A new pool house built into the hill and the art gallery (a reconstructed 19th century barn) form their own courtyard around the vintage swimming pool with its original diving pad which is a twin to the circular pool at Johnson's Glass House. For Philip Johnson, this house represented a

Canyon House, 1959

Perhaps no other microclimate in Los Angeles fosters the cool, lush treed landscape of the San Francisco Bay area as that found in Rustic Canyon.

The principal mass of the house, with its cedar shingle siding, fits impeccably with its bucolic surroundings.

71 S. River Road, Stuart, FL
Following in Addison Mizner's popular ornamented Mediterranean Revival style that defined the Florida coast throughout much of the 1920s, Jack Yates' design for William Carnegie is a prime example of grand waterfront living. Colloquially known as â€œLucindia,â€ a contraction of the names of St. Lucie and of the Indian River, Lucindia has 222' of water frontage at 450' feet deep, the 2.2 acre estate is a prominent fixture in the small Town of Sewall's Point.
The 8,192 square foot main house has grand rooms. Large Palladian windows provide ample light into the grand ballroom which has oversized Cypress beams of intricately carved
