CasasNaAreia in Portugal.

If you’ve been aching for a peaceful escape that’s both eco and modern, we couldn’t think of a more stunning place to sit back and relax than Casas na Areia in Comporta, Portugal. Designed by architects Aires Mateus, this gorgeous retreat takes old masonry buildings and turns them into new, contemporary structures set upon the sand. Creating a delicate balance between the natural landscape and modern architecture, Aires Mateus’ design is able to evoke a poetic visual and visceral experience from its inhabitants.

Chalet Des Druns, Chamonix.

This vast chalet of 700m2 was constructed for luxurious holiday rentals and combines contemporary French Alpine architecture and design with the practical necessities for weekly high-end rentals for both summer and winter. Le Chalet des Drus has a sumptuous indoor swimming pool and spa area which is very rare to be found in Chamonix. There is also a gym, hot tub, hammam and cinema room – this chalet offers 5-star accommodation from top to toe! The use of these traditional materials contrasts beautifully with the modern design features such as the glass stairway and slate dining table using iron legs from the workshop of Mr Eiffel, (architect of the Eiffel Tower). This creates a stunning harmony respecting traditional building materials, and techniques with modern design features and technology.

Compound in the dunes by Ike Kligerman Barkley is on a rolling site overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, this beach house brings together two contrasting ideas – nineteenth century Shingle Style design, and a contemporary preference for material and textural expression over architectural detail. While the exterior captures the local design aesthetic, the interior treats light, space and surface in a distinctly modern fashion. Photographer: Peter Aaron / Esto.
