Working on a Saturday

It's on my bucket list to visit if I ever get to New York but can you imagine if this was your workplace? I'd never want to go home. I'd work for free. A florist shop makes me happy even if it's just a blank room and some buckets of flowers but this, oh this is so much more. Saipua, design by Tacklebox Architecture

Up on the roof

I'm rounding out the week with another project from French design firm GCG Architectes, a rooftop home and garden terrace. The architects modified an off-the-plan house, streamlining, ironing out layout problems, improving functionality and brightness. Then the fun began with interiors by Kierszbaum Intérieurs. Eclectic in style, exuberant in taste, fun and fab meets OTT, it is like a magpie collection of trinkets and treasures. Just when you think you cannot take any more there is the garden. Oh the garden. A little piece of paradise on the banks of the Seine.

Frame House

When modern architecture and black comes together and produces something that dreams are made of. The Frame House Melbourne by Carr Design Group. Situated on a large block in Melbourne, the family home exposes little to the street. Behind the textured stucco wall a striking house is revealed within a lush secret garden. The rhythm of the colonnade and overall proportions evoke the elegance of Georgian architecture. Conversely the house is bold and contemporary with its robust steel frame supporting a finely detailed metal screen and zinc cladding.

A summer house in Norway

Summer is upon many of us and I think I just found the ideal summer house. Yes, I can imagine taking the summer off work and hanging out here basking in the sun, swimming in the lake and enjoying the jaw-dropping views. It is incredible how architecture firm Jensen & Skodvin incorporated the side of the mountain into the home. This home is a true architectural masterpiece. (Thank you Silje for the link!)

The joy of being French

I can think of a number of words to describe this 240m2 apartment in the 16th arrondissement of Paris, colourful, eclectic, family friendly, stylish, but the word that sticks in my mind is joyous ... or perhaps riot. A joyous riot of colour and pattern and style. Imagine the delight every morning when you awake to such a wonderful home. By Alexandre Goulet, Olivia Charpentier and Dev Gupta of Paris and Shanghai-based GCG Architectes.
