Apple TV+: ‘Home’ Is Coming Back—See Every Amazing House | Architectural Digest

Architectural Digest logo

A beautiful house is something to behold, but seeing how it sharply reflects the life of its inhabitants is even more remarkable. Home, the Apple TV+ docuseries produced by A24 that is now entering its second season (premiering June 17), digs into some of the most thoughtfully designed houses around the world, and considers how a locale, a building, and its residents all shape one another. Whether this means creating a home that’s open to the public to make up for a city’s lack of adequate public libraries (in the case of the “Casa de Carla y Pedro” episode) or customizing the shape of a structure to avoid having to cut down a single tree (“House of the Big Arch”), the docuseries displays the many elements, both big and small, that can shape buildings and the lives we live in them.

Below, we’ve explored the most notable elements of each house featured in the second season of Home.

France: Hourré House

Created by Anna Chavepayre, cofounder of the France-based architecture firm Encore Collectif, the Hourré House took most of its cues from the dilapidated farmhouse that stood when Chavepayre’s family first took ownership of this property. Holes in the roof became oversized skylights, outer broken down walls became indoor/outdoor rooms, and gaps in the ceiling between the first and second floor became netting on which to lounge and connect with family members in the room below.
