The Sanctuary

The “First Church of Christ, Scientist” is a historic landmark in Seattle. That makes the 12 town-home units truly unique, carved, into the hollow center of the old domed building. The units share a central atrium, the “Sanctuary” with a stained-glass oculus in the roof, but each has its own address and outdoor entrance.

A House on Stilts

When Enrique Polanco, an art fair promoter in Madrid, decided to build a second home on this island some 100 miles from the Spanish mainland, he said he set out “to escape from real life in Madrid.” It’s no wonder he took his inspiration from the fictional character Peter Pan and named his home Never Never Land.
