This thoroughly modern family home proudly displays its modernist architectural lines, its two "boxes" seemingly floating on stilts on the site. Light filled and child friendly the open plan home is all about relaxed yet stylish living. Warm, welcoming and liveable by Western Australian design studio Klopper & Davis Architects.
Saturday night. What to do, where to go. Grab your coat and your appetite and meet me at Transformer Fitzroy, Melbourne by Breathe Architecture. Love the inner city industrial meets greenhouse trellis vibe of this former electrical transformer warehouse now vegetarian restaurant. Exposed brick, board formed concrete and chainlink fencing softened by pools of light and tumbling vines.
I don't know which of these two houses by South Melbourne-based Wellard Architects I like better. But that's a moot point. There's no reason why I can't be inspired by both of them. Contemporary Australian design, beautifully crafted with an emphasis on cabinet work and a rich palette of textures and finishes.
Sunshine, daffodils, egg yolks, rubber ducks and rain coats. There is something magical about yellow, something that brings a smile to my face. It's the same with this ranch house renovation in Ojai, California by Bestor Architecture. This sassy single storey has cast off its post-war dowdiness and is fun and fresh, bright and modern and just a little unexpected.
