Time to go home

Is it possible not to want to leave the office when it is time to go home? Can you like a workspace so much that you just want to move in a bed and call it home? If my work environment looked like the Pensar offices designed by Brisbane architects Marc&Co I'd be one happy camper ... or should that be resident.

Tribe Studio, again 

Jo has been known to spread the love for Australian architecture firm Tribe Studio (see here - I am still in love with those black bookcases with lights hanging above  - and here) but now it is my turn. Here is a mélange of several of their other residential projects featuring my favourite spaces. Simple yet effective. And oh so bright and airy.

I want to be here

I've changed my mind. I want to be here where the pool meets the rainforest. Perched in the hills of the Atlantic Forest in Guarujá on the São Paulo coast. The AMA house by Jacobsen Arquitetura.

I want to be here

Just off the coast from Brisbane is beautiful sand island, Stradbroke Island, a holiday destination for most and home for a lucky few. Beach shacks were common, cobbled together from whatever could be found locally or easily transported by barge to the island. This is changing as modern developments gobble up the old beach homes so it is refreshing to see existing shacks maintained and thoughtfully extended. This Point Lookout shack was originally built by artist David Nutter in conjunction with his architect father Danny Nutter. Brisbane based architects Marc & Co were given the task of improving the flow between the series of shacks and sheds that make up the house, adding decks and outdoor showers while improving the connection to the landscape. A simple way of living, a satisfying way of holidaying.

Stalking ferro-cement organic

I never thought I would catch myself typing the words ferro-cement organic. Being of a certain age I have vague memories of chicken wire and concrete disasters lurking in under house games rooms or pseudo hippy hang outs. The type of weekend DIY that seemed like a good idea at the time until the sheer scope of the job overwhelmed the home owner. I blame it on Antoni Gaudí, Frank Lloyd Wright and Antti Lovag. The Hollander House, built in the late 60s early 70s by architect David Hollander, is no weekend hodge podge. Now recognised as a icon of Australian organic architecture its current interior designer owner has listed the house for sale with Modern House.  Part Fred Flintstone, part scifi, all retrolicious you can read more of its history and design here. (Real estate listing also here while it lasts.)
