A retreat by Salmela Architects

Thankfully it's Friday and I thought since I'm sure many of us could use a little decompressing right about now, that featuring a retreat would be quite fitting. This is the Yingst Retreat, 4000 sq ft on a peaceful 16 acres in Michigan, designed by Salmela Architects. What a dream! It's heaven in the middle of a forest. Modern yet fairly simple construction that is not at all harsh, and quite organic with the help of lots basic materials like wood, ceramic tile and brick. Complete with sauna and bocce court, it's the perfect place to relax and enjoy life.

More from Meyer Davis 

Will Meyer and Gray Davis of New York City architectural design firm Meyer Davis Studio have a repertoire of all kinds of stunning creations - from homes and hotels to restaurants and retail. We've blogged them a couple of times (here and here) but I had to go for round 3 as their timeless and fresh spaces are still working for me.

The Cloud House

Every cloud has a silver lining ... unless it's the Cloud House in Fitzroy North in Melbourne by McBride Charles Ryan. The Edwardian era facade is left relatively untouched out of respect to the existing streetscape. The old house's original interior has been painted white with a carpet of flowers providing the surprise. Linking the old and the new is a red box, the heart of the home, the kitchen. What opens beyond is a fantastical cloud shaped living area. No silver lining though. Warm timbers cocoon the space. Unexpected, child like but meticulously crafted.

Stalking in a storm

At this time of the year severe electrical storms are a daily feature where I live. I'm racing a roiling storm cloud as I type this. Please excuse me if I don't stay on too long. I'd hate to fry my computer. This Northcote, Melbourne house is by FMD Architects and the garden by Eckersley Garden Architecture. Oh that lightning strick was a bit too close. I'll have to leave you to stalk this house by yourself. Link here while it lasts.
