The Eastern philosophy of equality is integrated into the architectural form and living conditions
This amazing architectural project is started in May 2022 and designed by Coast Palisade Consulting Group Ltd.
3. Shenzhen Financial Culture Center Public Building by Xiaolin Ji
Set to be completed in 2024, Shenzhen Financial Culture Center Public Building is one of the 10 most influential public facilities in Shenzhen, China. It is composed of two rhombus shapes and resembles the stepping stones of the steady development of the financial industry. A sense of speed and futurism comes from the building’s metallic rhombus geometries.
It is an amazing architectural project by Xiaolin Ji for Swooding Architects.
4. Double Barn House by Katarzyna Starzyk
Completed in 2022, Double Barn House is a family house of four located in the suburbs of Warsaw. The goal of this project is to respect the regional tradition through a modern style and version. The graphite facade made of hand-formed brick refers to the dark pine trunks that grow in the area while the dark body’s massiveness is minimized by recesses finished with light wood-like boards.
The architect behind this awesome project is Katarzyna Starzyk, a professional architect that has more than fourteen years of experience.
5. Shopare Residential by Yaser and Yasin Rashid Shomali
The design inspiration for Shopare Residential comes from the beautiful site, its colors, textures, and the context of the field surrounded by forest. A bonding glass box is the main key element that can separate two sides of the building. One can sense freedom in nature by walking on a glass floor in the middle of a building.
Yaser and Yasin Rashid Shomali from Shomali Design Studio are the men behind this awesome architectural project.
6. Bay Mega Mansion Exhibition Center by Tengyuan Design
The design of the Bay Mega Mansion Exhibition Center makes full use of the unique sea-view resources in Jiaozhou Bay. Horizontal lines echo the sea’s gentleness and tranquility while curves interpret the tumbling posture of the huge waves of the sea. Both of them complete a concerto between the sea and the waves in this building design.
This exhibition center is an architectural project by Tengyuan Design, a diversified and comprehensive engineering practice consulting organization from China.
7. Villa Madonna Hotel Extension by Joseph Di Pasquale
The orientation toward the summit of the Sciliar mountain range is the main inspiration for Villa Madonna Hotel Extension.

Inside this new extension, there is a reception, a refreshment area, and different reading-conversation rooms.
The man behind this awesome project is Joseph Di Pasquale, an architect, university professor, Ph.D. in architecture, designer, and urban planner with experience and international recognition.

It is a fantastic architectural project designed by Gao Shanxing, a professional designer with more than 20 years of architectural experience in Mainland China and Hong Kong.
9. Cascading Terraces Residential Apartments by Potiropoulos and Partners
Located in Kifissia, the design approach of Cascading Terraces Residential Apartments prioritizes the main view’s utilization that opens towards the northwest and southwest due to the location of the site and the topography of the city’s suburb. A series of cascading terraces at a slight angle with each other is the result of the internal arrangement.
It is an inspirational project designed by Potiropoulos and Partners, a professional agency from Greece.
10. House in Yamate Residential House by Tatsuhiro Nishimoto
The inspiration for House in Yamate Residential House comes from an intention to create a living place filled with light.
