A New York townhouse

I get excited when I find architects who maintain as many original features as possible when renovating homes. especially when it comes to gorgeous New York townhomes and brownstones. This townhouse on 6th Avenue is pretty simple but the details are so yummy including marble fireplace surround and pocket doors with patterned glass inserts.

Slot House

I love the verticality of this modern extension to a Georgian terrace house. Renovations in the 1980s had left the floorplan confused and ceilings lowered. By inserting a glass infill between the narrow back wing of the house and the neighbour's wall the ground floor now has a soaring double height ceiling while a master suite is reached by an open tread staircase.

Working on a Saturday

It's like I say weeks after week. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it's someplace stylish ... and full of plants. Loft Office (within an old steam factory in Rotterdam) by jvantspijker.

Hidden

I do like a hidden kitchen, everything behind a bank of doors. Clean lined and contemporary. Take a closer look at this garden pavillion extension to a post war bungalow. Can you see it? Yes there it is. Hiding. House Au Yeung by Tribe Studio Architects.
