The notion of nomad living has taken a turn for the better in the past years.

Use them as holiday homes, guest houses, home offices, studios or even as a starting point for new home-owners.

We all know that education is the first step towards evolution, which means that there will always be room for campuses or other suitable places for students. Morphosis Architects, led by Thom Mayne, have created the Emerson College on Sunset Boulevard, L.A. This campus is designed to connect and provide shelter for over 200 undergraduate students that are willing to learn new things in fields such as art, communication and other interdisciplinary studies.
This residential project was recently completed by D4 Designs, a multi-award winning design practice founded in 2000 by Douglas Paton. With a bold façade and large outdoor spaces, this amazing house boasts personality and elegance. A special charm is given by the dark rectangular box above the main entrance.
When I first saw Casa dos Terracos I remembered about Santorini and the charming white buildings out there. Located in Carvoeiro, Portugal, this house was built in 1967 and used as a holiday retreat. Over time, things have changed. Studio Arte renovated it to fulfill all the necessary conditions so that a family could permanently live here. They did a pretty good job!
