From Mixed-Material Homes to Shipping Container Cafes

— November 24, 2018 — Art & Design
The November 2018 architecture category boasts an eclectic range of examples from the design-driven industry. The featured structures are stylish, sustainable and functional.

Firms have been focusing on delivering a contemporary feel to briefs, with an emphasis on modern aesthetic and eco-conscious interiors. GLA.Design's 'SIRI House' embraces this through a structure that has vegetative hits throughout. The home is described as a "life gallery."

Other companies, featured in the November 2018 architecture list, aim to solve social issues and crises through sustainable and affordable design.
