FAR frohn&rojas – Wall House, Santiago de Chile, 2006/2007
This two-storey dwelling in a suburb of Santiago was designed for a Chilean couple returning home after many years in Germany. The house makes use of a hierarchy of wall layers constructed from materials seldom used for this purpose, resulting in an innovative architectural style which redefines the space and the relationship between the interior and exterior.

MIR – AvSJJF House, Amsterdam, 2004–2006
The house is situated in a recently-developed area with small plots of land. The design originally stemmed from the client’s request that "it should not immediately reveal its secret". Moving through to the back of the property becomes a carefully orchestrated journey of discovery.
Architect: Claudia Schmidt
