Homes that break out of a boxy style are refreshing, and attention to details like form, angles and natural lighting make them even more interesting.
From Giovanni D’Ambrosio, this uniquely shaped home in Mount Hotham, Australia is an entertaining architectural feat. Taking natural stone and blending it with wood and metal, the house is formed into an interesting angle.
The use of materials correlates to the outside surroundings and gives it an organic feel, only with an unexpected edge. Preconstruction took the existing landscape into account, and the home was built around already present trees.
Almost as if drawing inspiration from the rough terrain, it is welcoming yet still feels a bit wild.
And looking out the window surely never gets boring.

By Harrison and White Sustainable Urban Design and Architecture, the Foyn-Johanson House has an original exterior made from recycled materials that draws attention to its lot placement in Victoria, Australia.
The home was designed around a year-round garden space and specific strategies were used to focus the sunlight to it. A process referred to as reverse shadow casting makes the most of the pathway and placement of solar light and helps to distribute it throughout the home and garden.
The shading provided allows natural light to filter through without becoming too intense.

Located in Berlin, Germany, House W designed by Pott Architects is part of a series with a focus on streamlined style and individuality. The durable outside appearance of this family home and its sloped presentation make it a sturdy fixture placed in its wooded spot.
Consideration was given to how each indoor space reflects a requirement for privacy and communal zones, and also how the needs of a family residence may change over time. The rooms are open and may seem a bit stark, however sliding doors and rooms tucked upstairs allow ample time for privacy and relaxation. The main space is softened by a central fireplace and works with the houseful of sunlight to distribute warmth.
Created to have an on holiday feel, the original window style and vertical wall design allows a concentrated view of the landscape and garden area.

Angles and cleverly used spaces make these homes stand out among the routine.
