Toorak texture

Your very first residential design job can be daunting. Can I? Will they? Does it? Why? What? How much? And this is the fabulous result of Melbourne-based Northbourne Architecture + Design.

The latest from Camille Hermand Architectures

It's no surprise that French architect Camille Hermand is one of our favourites. Her latest project sees her take on a family home in a western suburb of Paris. No suburban hohum here though.

The Riverhouse

Trees, river, windows, views, spaciousness....what more could you want? This 6,500 sq ft home in Coxsackie, NY on the Hudson River is unbelieveable, inside and out.

It could even convince me to enjoy winter. ;) Architect: BWArchitects (previous features here and here)+ interior: Poonam Khanna + most photos: William Waldron for Architectural Digest.

A series of levels cascading together with short flights of stairs and a double height void allow for "open plan" living which is light filled yet discreet. Playing with the juxtaposition of contrasts, positive and negative, open and closed, old and new has created a striking, minimalist home by Julie Firkin Architects.

Modern mid century

Obvious mid century roots have been enhanced by new profiles and a more contemporary line in this house by Sydney-based Nobbs Radford Architects. A sense of light and space is enhanced by soaring ceilings, light wells and voids. A galley kitchen harks back to the 60s but is a modern, fresh take with on point finishes. I'm smitten.
