Top 10 Architect's Homes around the world



1. Hemeroscopium House


Architect: Anton Garcia-Abril


A house that seems to defy gravity, it did however take the architect a whole year to get the engineering right. Ironically once the engineering was 100%, it only took 7 days to assemble and get the house up and running!

Architect: Alden B Dow


Alden designed his home and studio with angle-down roofs along a stream and plum grove in the park-like garden his father had owned. This amazing design was completed in 1941 and could still stand as something new and exciting in today’s standards!

4. Graham House


Architect: Arthur Erickson


After being inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright, Arthur Erickson created his own version of a modern house in 1962 that could even be considered a top design of today. The use of wood allows the structure to perfectly blend with its rocky and natural surroundings.

5. Taliesin West


Architect: Frank Lloyd Wright


Franks Lloyd Wrights’ Estate known as the Taliesin North was designed with lime stone as the main material. The Taliesin North was designed in 1911 which makes this design way ahead of its time with its modern finishes one would see today.

6. View Hill House


Architect: Denton Corker Marshall


Comprised of two rectangular boxes on top of each other to form a cantilever. The design feels as if it might topple off, creating a unique look and a different feel. The use of dark colour allows the structure to blend with the natural farm surroundings.
