Colour is centre stage in this Little Venice, London apartment renovation by Andy Martin Architects. A fab, fun family home in a grade I listed mansion terrace, the architects have used blocks of colour and texture like an intervention delineating the new from the beautiful, historic shell.
A few posts ago there was much debate about a Soviet bunker conversion. Bad history vs. good design. Can new lives and loves erase the horror, the harm? The Nak is a reconverted horse knackery, partly reconstructed to become a private weekender in the bush near Trafalgar in Victoria, Australia. Wolveridge Architects have created a home that is beautiful and functional while sitting solidly in its bush setting like the agricultural/industrial building it once was. The death of horses has given way to new life, new use. Thoughts? Can good adaptive design rehabilitate not just the building but the building's history?
