Ravi Shanghavi, Ottawa, here.

I’m going to start sharing some examples of intriguing architecture, from around the world. I’ll try to make it interesting, however I’ll usually let the photographs/designs speak for themselves (at bottom of post!) in the main.

This week’s development is designed by I/O Architects, and is situated in Bulgaria, and is crafted from local stone – the exterior is quite striking.

The ‘slight slope’ of the building utilises a strange landscape topography to its advantage, as the slope allows for varying degrees of privacy. Further, the building’s slope means that certain areas of the property harness sunlight to provide heat, and others shade.
