In this 'housing issue' MARK magazine brings you a whopping 24 new homes from around the globe.

From a hand-built holiday rental in central Chile, to a beach house in Sydney – with a few stop-offs in mainland Europe – there’s plenty to dig your teeth into. An organically-shaped house on the outskirts of Prague is elevated above the ground and unconventionally supported by a single concrete column. Czech firm Sépka Architects claims that the ‘whimsical-looking decision saved a lot of money [and avoided] difficult conditions which would have made a classical foundation more demanding’ – that, and it really looks quite impressive.

In Tokyo, a project from Kochi Architect’s Studio plays on the firm’s affinity for angular cut-outs, visual perspectives and splashes of colour. Ana House shows why doors are probably overrated and just as much privacy can be gained by cutting irregular openings out of the walls, floor and ceilings.

This issue is not all about houses, though. Duncan Lewis Scape Architecture focuses on the relationship between buildings and landscape, following the contours of a highly-topographic site to realise a nine-tiered school in Revin, France. With the majority of the 18,000 sq-m site covered in green roofing, it would be fairly easy – amongst the planted landscape – to miss this altogether if we didn’t point it out to you!

In other news: MARK investigates how so-called ‘touristic architecture’ is shaping cities like Barcelona; Vens and Vanbelle show off their most recent projects with an unusual photographic approach; and Stephanie Akkaoui Hughes talks about her first 1825 days as an architect at OMA – and what happened next.
