Perfectly imperfect. Manzara Ayvalik by Istanbul architects Gabi Kern-Altındiş and Erdoğan Altındiş. Modern minimalism within a once crumbling historic shell in a village on the Aegean Sea. See. What did I say? Perfectly imperfect. Available to let as a holiday home it's my Wednesday daydream. I'm packing my swimsuit in my mind. More via Manzara Istanbul and Urlaubs Architektur.
On 100 acres with a view of Lake Ontario sits The Farm. Architect Cindy Renderly's clients wanted something modern but appropriate for the country. A gabled roof line is in keeping with a typical barn structure, but inside it's minimalist and not-so-farm-like. Cindy used Douglas fir plywood on the ceilings to add warmth, and it's a beautiful choice. An artist's studio is an added bonus, separated from the main house by a courtyard. Despite being a tad bleak looking in the winter, this must be such a peaceful retreat, especially in summer.
This modern bachelor pad designed by San Francisco interior designer Regan Baker really hits all the right notes. Love the lightest and the touches of orange and blue throughout, and it is not too masculine. The overall color pallet was derived from his uncle’s large scale highway artwork, which is now displayed proudly above the custom sofa. From there we built the design around his love for modern spaces, his personal hobby of photography and his love for music. With the exception of a few great pieces of art, we worked hand in hand with our client to assure his bachelor pad was masculine, yet casual modern and in the end created a bachelor pad Ryan Gosling would be happy to bring his dates back to.
