Ter House / MESURA

December 7, 2020 Valeria Silva 0

Casa Ter surges from a process of truly listing to the cultural and natural environment it inhabits. The decisions behind its shape and materiality are rooted in touching as little of the natural surroundings as possible, and interpreting the local building culture of the area (the rural fields and towns of l’Empordà), using contemporary construction techniques. Following this premise, Casa Ter aims to create a personal sense of place, in close contact with all elements it’s surrounded by.

Slot House / Feldman Architecture

November 4, 2020 Valeria Silva 0

Drawn to the oak and chaparral landscape, our clients fell in love with the secluded Los Altos Hills and began envisioning their perfect family home, situated among colorful ridges and natural tranquility. The 180 degree cross canyon views of the Foothills Open Space Preserve to the west of the Slot House site served as inspiration for the design, orientation, and focus of the home: connecting the clients and their family as closely and intimately as possible with the breathtaking natural world that surrounded them.
