Prospect Heights Brownstone

The restoration of this New York Brownstone saw floors replaced, windows reinstalled, doors rebuilt and all the boring but very important services updated. It had been a wreck but in the hands of Brent Allen Buck of Brooklyn-based Buck Projects the late 19th century building became a home again, its Italianate features restored to their former glory while a new focus was placed on modern open plan living. Think mod cons with a mid century collection of furniture and all the while the beautiful old bones grounding it all. "Approached with sensitivity, today can rise to be the equal of yesterday."

A love letter

Dear Simpson Jacoby Architecture,

I just wanted to pen a short note to let you know how much I love your work on this old house. Sympathetic, stylish, simple and soft. Love the colour palette, the whitewashed floors, the kitchen and the restored, sinuous stairs rising to that dark and moody studio office. Love how your client has filled it gently and thoughtfully with their possessions and how you knew it would be just so. Love it all.

Regards,

Jo

Still Monday and I need more coffee

If you'd rather start (or in my case continue) your Monday with a hit of caffeine in a dark, albeit stylish cave then perhaps Abbots & Kinney by Adelaide-based architects studio-gram will help you ease into the week. If I was drinking a cappuccino in the last cafe then it's definitely short blacks here. The added bonus is that if good coffee and great surrounds aren't enough to cure your Mondayitis I hear the pastry is to die for.

Outdoor space on the roof

Can you imagine having this as your outdoor space? The landscaping and funiture are enough to blog me away, but throw in the most incredible views of the Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomphe and I'm having heart palpitations. By architect Charles Zana

The Arch House

Aptly named the Arch House, Italian architecture firm A2BC has taken minimalism to a new level with the renovation of this Milan apartment. It was an operation of purification of the elements built over time that have marred the structure and the original historical characteristics of the space. This process has brought the soul of the place to light; twelve arches strung along the bearing structure that longitudinally divides the apartment in two creating three separate zones transversally: living, dining and kitchen, and bedrooms. Communication between the environments only occurs at the arched passageways. The project develops through the enhancement of these classical architectural elements that become the protagonists of the spatial scene. White as the dominant color and the concrete floor underline the intent to maintain a neutral approach in order to highlight the architecture of the space and its characteristic elements. I have a couple of archways in my home - and now I want MORE! Those concrete floors with all these cats would be awesome too.
