A reflective glass house appeared on the architectural scene in 2014. The Mirror Residence by Johan Seibling and Anouk Vogel is a private villa designed in response to a competition brief calling for a building that would relate to a internet site inside of a forest clearing. A spectacular picture is visualised as the structure and nature collide. Turning our attention to the humble materials we have extra a couple of our favourite structures to whet your appetite. Super size is the way forward.
