Dose of colour  

I thought we could use a little dose of colour on the blog today. And it comes in the form of fabulously styled spaces by Jakob Solgren. (See more of his work here).

Robert Mills Architects

Robert Mills (based in Melbourne, Australia) can bang out a stunning contemporary home, a beach house, or a heritage restoration with a wow factor.... the results are unique, meticulous and sophisticated regardless of the genre. I really can't decide which I prefer more. (See more in a previous post here)

Paul Bernier +1

A second look at Canadian architect Paul Bernier. A departure from his timber boxes with voids and perforated floors climbing up like treehouses, this home sits solidly in a grove, its stone walls anchoring it firmly to the earth. The monotonal greys are reminiscent of Belgian interiors, clean lined and spare but with a modern, contemporary feel. As striking as this house looks in its wintery setting I cannot help imagining how different it will be when the trees are green and leafy. A cool retreat in the forest.

Paul Bernier

Canadian architect Paul Bernier explores the ideas of distillation and purity in his designs. He questions whether floors need to be solid, walls fixed and how a door opens. This does not make his designs gimmicky though. The simplicity of line and the use of natural materials particularly timber make his homes intimate and personal. I love the slatted floors in both these houses, the amazing overhead shot of planted roof and shady garden below as well as the bathroom with wall slits in the second home. Spaces that are interesting as well as beautiful.
