Kid Robot Store by Mash Studios

Mash Studios has worked on Kid Robot retail stores in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Santa Monica and now on Miami.

Holiday House in the Alps by AFGH Architekten

AFGH Architekten designed this incredible holiday house located in Scheidegg, Switzerland. The building was arranged on the periphery of the property so that the option of constructing another building could be left open. The concrete cellar anchors the building in the sloping terrain and houses the entrance area and the technical servicing, on top of which is the wooden volume of the building.
