Est

So excited when we received an email from super stylist Deb McLean letting us know about the launch of new Australian emag Est. Est is edgy and fresh. Global content but put together with that great Aussie style vibe we are all raving about. Sian MacPherson, Editor in Chief & Lynda Evans, Creative Director have sourced the coolest and the best. It's so obvious ... sexiest, freshest, edgiest, greatest ... Est.

Seventh Heaven

As promised yesterday a stunning church conversion by Baker Kavanagh Architects. The recently completed redevelopment of terrace residences is in Mill Hill, a landmark heritage church close to Sydney's centre in Bondi.  The church was converted into two luxury apartments, planned around internal courtyards. Two contemporary terraces were built adjacent to the church with a contrasting aesthetic. Think elegance and restraint, a juxtaposition between the heritage exterior and street scape and minimal white interior. Heavenly!

Diego Ladino

Interior designer Diego Ladino emailed us with some GORG photos of an apartment in Madrid, Spain that he designed. I LOVE the eclectic mix of styles - quirky and very cool. That would be the first 4 photos (before the jump). After the jump are photos I nabbed from his website of what appears to be a totally stunning restaurant. Talk about talent!

DDIR Architecture

DDIR Architecture Studio was created in 2003 by the combined inspirations of French-Canadian architect Dominic Dube and Inge Reick, originally from Germany. This firm is based in Bangalore, India and one of their architects, Hillary, emailed us about one of their latest projects. It's the modern and minimalist Rao Residence in Hyderabad. It's perhaps too modern for some folks but a work of art regardless. And HELLO, check out the indoor pool!!! Thanks Hillary!

Baker Kavanagh Architects

Baker Kavanagh Architects are a firm focused on creating architecture of honesty, imagination and integrity. Their heritage refurbishments have an optimism, are a delight. Wells Street is an exclusive residential development in Redfern on the edge of Sydney's CBD, consisting of a house, three contemporary terraces and the refurbishment of three heritage terraces. No stuffy refurb here. There is almost a sense of joy, a celebration of houses reborn, streetscapes renewed. Tomorrow I'll post an amazing church conversion that Baker Kavanagh Architects have shared.
