Everyone needs a break once in a while to a place where we are alone where nothing breaks the silence except the surf of the rustling leaves. Well, those moments should not necessarily remain in your closed eyes; we have suggestions of places to enjoy a minute or two of solitude.

These delightfully crafted houses are safely hidden from the public’s glare and the architecture is tasteful.

This shopping mall with houses on its roof is located in a city of 4 million people with little free space. That’s why architectural solutions here are sometimes a bit nonstandard.

This house was built in 1986 by a married couple whose dream was to live in a quiet place.

The reason behind the idea of an underground villa was a local law: the authorities forbade erecting a high building since that would spoil the landscape. That’s why the architect decided to build a house in a cave.
