Wingardh Architects, Sweden, are "committed to the artistic and poetic dimensions of architecture." This guest house and sauna, simply entitled The Mill House, is situated in Vastra Karup, rural southern Sweden, and adheres to this committment by its soul-enriching and sympathetic yet modernist design. Wingardh Architects are selling sanctuary, a rural idyll of a rustic retreat where clean, contemporaneity envelops traditional Swedish design.

Mar Azul House By BAK Architects

If you go down to the woods today you're sure of a big surprise... for nestled in the forest at the beachside resort of Mar Azul, Buenos Aires, lies BAK Architects' Casa Mar Azul; the environmentally low-impact summer house that's anything but.

Mar Azul House By BAK Architects 

Built in 2004, this striking retreat was created to fulfil a brief, the inherent ethic of which was to design a low-budget home of low impact upon the landscape and to consequently require little maintenance. Reclaimed materials and a great consideration towards light, both natural and synthetic, bore Casa Mar Azul; the realisation of architecture at once blending with and yet punctuating its natural environment.

Those of us living in UK have enjoyed (or not depending on your property ladder status) an enormous and unprecedented boom in the housing market in recent years. Now that a looming bubble burst is upon us we have all considered the financial effects that this will have, but how many of us have considered social effects of the looming effigies to that rapid era of growth? With swathes of unoccupied market apartments likely to become the new slums and sprawling estates of mock Tudor horrors we seem so keen on living in, the UK’s architectural future looks bleak. For what so many people take for granted is the impact of our environment on not only our quality of life but our psychological well being.

And with that in mind I have a new raison d’être, a vision mission I know I’m not alone in dreaming. So my contribution to the cause? Why, I’m going to shamelessly plug some much needed UK based contemporary architecture in the hope we as a nation will start realising that modern can not only be beautiful but also offers us a better way of living and a sustainable future.

First on my list is Edinburgh based Zebrano Design who pride themselves on offering innovative, contextual and well detailed architecture for the 21st century. Bravo!

With over 20,000 self-build homes a year, Britain is fast casting a continental eye over its custom constructions, with a growing preference for glass-fronted timber frames over traditional bricks and mortar. Ever since seeing the German custom-build house on Grand Designs, I've been fairly in love with this prefab self-build style of home. Huf Haus is one of several UK-based companies offering such constructions, with precision-cut kits of German extraction shipped for assembly right here to these shores.

Huf Haus offer architect or self-designed custom timber post-and-beam-style houses, prepared in Germany by experienced craftsmen and constructed on land purchased in the UK. Typified by the speed and expertise with which they are built, these tailor-made houses are quickly becoming a popular choice for a beautiful, custom-built home. Once a plot of land has been purchased, the company will oversee the entire project, from conception to construction, with the final product nothing short of a unique structure, beautiful both inside and out.

Huf Haus doesn't come cheap, though, at between £130-£150 per sq. ft., with a 3,400 sq. ft. house costing around £500,000. However, you do get the whole package, workforce included, and a complete build within four months.
