Four out of five of October’s houses of the month are renovations or extensions, from a Hamptons home styled on a Bond villain’s lair to a Victorian terrace in Melbourne interspersed with mini gardens.
Our latest monthly roundup of the five most popular residences featured on Dezeen also features a pale-brick family home in Berlin, a barn-like villa in rural Belgium and a copper-clad house in northern California.
Read on to find out more about Dezeen readers’ favourite houses this month:
The most popular house on Dezeen this month was in fact built 50 years ago, having been designed by mid-century architect Eugene L Futterman.
A band of limestone now separates old and new, complemented by a pale-brick facade.
Hidden in a woodland clearing in the Flemish village of Waasmunster, Villa VD is a timber-clad, thatched-roof home that was recently extended by Britsom Philips.
The Belgian studio retained only the core of the existing home, adding double-height gabled forms in every direction to create light-filled minimalist living spaces.
Madrone Ridge sits within northern California’s Sonoma Valley, an area with dry summers but heavy rainfall during the winter.
Palo Alto studio Field Architecture therefore based its design for the home around the concept of the presence and absence of water, choosing a flowing form consisting of three fanning, copper-clad pavilions.
