Our latest roundup of the five most popular residences featured on Dezeen in the last month also includes a hexagonal home in Amsterdam, a playful Sydney townhouse and the renovation of a 1960s house in rural Belgium.
Read on to find out more about Dezeen readers' favourite houses from November:
The resulting project was yesterday named Scotland's best new building.
Australian studio SJB squeezed the structure onto a tight plot in Sydney's Surry Hills suburb, with a shop and a flat also contained within the building.
With architecture by luxury specialists Masastudio and interiors by Wearstler, this large white concrete house in California was designed to feel like a "modern ruin" reminiscent of ancient Greek buildings.
At the centre of the home is a glass-wrapped oval courtyard featuring an aged olive tree, its curving perimeter creating a gallery area for the owner's extensive art collection.
Built in an area of Amsterdam with relaxed planning regulations, Edge House features a hexagonal footprint as a response to the triangular shape of the plot.
Dutch practice Studio Prototype gave the home a utilitarian feel, combining floor-to-ceiling glazing with stucco surfaces, stone cladding and iroko timber frames.
Belgian architecture studios Mamout and Stéphanie Willocx stripped away previous extensions in their overhaul of this 1960s house on a sloping, wooded site.
The original frontage was restored, with full-height, sliding glass doors now opening onto a terrace that extends to form the roof of the former garage below, which was turned into a bedroom and bathroom.
