“Hiding in Triangles is a new hotel for bike enthusiasts proposed by design firm Philip Modest Schambelan + Anton Fromm. The hotel — if built — will be perched on a cliff above Lake Garda in Italy.

04. Blue Rock House / Anmahian Winton Architects

“A new house, guesthouse, and garage form a community of buildings on a rural hilltop site, evoking a rural homestead. The buildings define a formal courtyard that opens to specific views of the Berkshire and Catskill Mountains. Copper, wood, and bluestone are the primary materials, deployed to affect a minimal and sculptural vocabulary. The buildings are embedded to varying degree within the rocky topography, and bluestone walls weave between architecture and landscape to reinforce their integration.” (archdaily)
