Garage

Fancy living in an old garage? Melbourne based architects Hearth have taken a small, utilitarian building and with clever use of space and salvaged or secondhand materials created a elementary but stylish studio apartment. Open plan, yes, and with private areas on view, the point isn't to be exhibitionist when friends come to visit but to live simply and well in a small space.

Antokolsky penthouse

How about a dose of modernism to make you want to de-clutter and enjoy some concrete? The Antokolsky penthouse by Pitsou Kedem Architect is pretty spectacular, and pretty freaking huge at 680 m². So not only can you do laps up and down its massively long corridor, you can then go take a dip in the rooftop pool and enjoy the views of Tel Aviv. My favourite touch is the Ingo Maurer Lucellino lights - a longtime favourite of mine.

Bondi apartment

The renovation of this Art Deco penthouse apartment at Bondi Beach, Sydney opens the interior to an external courtyard and delineates internal space by a series of joinery walls. The new sits lightly within the historic shell with period features remaining intact while modern considerations are addressed and sinuous curves touch lightly on Art Deco angles. A cool, hip pad within a classic old apartment. By Marsh Cashman Koolloos.

Working on a Saturday

If you have to go to work on a Saturday I couldn't think of a better place than the Birkenstock Australia HQ. Sustainability, quality, craftsmanship ... not just Birkenstock but the design by Melbourne Design Studio. Yes please! Read more about the brief and the designers' approach to the project here.

P.S. Why am I obsessed by working on a Saturday all of a sudden? I have a new business, Feast and Co. Pardon the website as it is still in development but we are all about catering and functions based in a beautiful old 1916 home. We're super busy this weekend with two weddings. Yikes! I better get off this blog and back to the bride. Hopefully photos and background story soon.
