A FINNE house

The latest house by Nils Finne is perched on the shore of the Hood Canal, a long, fjord-like arm of Puget Sound in Washington State. Opening up the mostly glazed living space gives the compact 2400 SF space the feel of a large front porch facing the water. Anchoring the north end of the living space is a two-story building volume containing several bedrooms and separate his/her office spaces. Simple yet elegant finishes make this more than a lake front cabin though. A special place far from the madding crowd but definitely not far from creature comforts. It's this sustainable "richness" and well as a strong sense of place that FINNE Architects bring to life in all their projects.

Incorporated - part 3

Recently I blogged some work by NY based architecture and design firm Incorporated (here, here and here) and because I am now a huge fan, I thought I'd feature another of their projects. This one is a fantastic light-filled apartment whose owners clearly enjoy quirky furnishings. I'm really now sure about that Franz West dining set but I have loved that WrongWoods credenza since it first came on the design scene.

Deborah Berke revisit


It has been years since I blogged the work of New York architecture firm Deborah Berke & Partners. I am still a big fan as the homes they have designed are subtle, refined, timeless and show a meticulous attention to detail.

studiofour

Burrowed into a sandy ridge on the Mornington Peninsula is a house by studiofour. Dark boxes spill down the slope while double height windows invite the outside in. Decks reach out to the native landscape which shelters the house from harsh winds. Public and private, positive and negative space, dark and light. Manmade and the natural. A holistic approach by the design studio ensures a bespoke home that addresses the site and the owner's needs. A piece of art, a sculpture as house, a metamorphosis.

Cliff face house

Perched on a precipice straining to take flight over the bay beyond. Anchored by ancient sandstone. Views and spaces, voids and solid roots. Just reach out your hand and touch the sky and water. Turn your back and find shelter. It's all about nature ... and nurture. House and site. Beauty and function. Fergus Scott Architects in collaboration with Peter Stutchbury Architecture
