This 10,000 sq ft Dallas property is wrapped in glass and was designed by local architect Joshua Nimmo. Drawing on Mies van der Rohe’s seminal Farnsworth House, the pavilion home unfurls across a single level, with its raised foundation creating the sense that the home is floating. Elevated pools emphasize the house’s elongated footprint and its abundance of glass and steel. See inside.

The wooden Workstation Cabin is a 15-sided pod that can be installed in the back garden to create a separate space to work – or an emergency guest bedroom. Budapest’s Hello Wood Studio designed the prefab hut which was partly inspired by the ongoing pandemic situation. It measures just 8 sq m and is wrapped in timber and glass. See inside.
