Capps residence


I have always wanted to live in a home that was very traditional on the outside and the complete opposite on the inside. This home by San Antonio, Texas firm Poteet Architects is just that, and it's FABULOUS. The exterior is absoutely gorgeous - those wrap-around porches! The interior is modern and sleek, with all of the wood work painted white (eeekkk! but admittedly, it looks great). I love the idea of people expecting to walk in to granny's house and being totally surprised. (More of their work here and here).

Historic gets a dose of industrial

McIntosh Poris Associates is a Michigan-based architecture, interior and urban design firm that I am now a huge fan of. They took a historic structure and gave it some funk with lots of rustic and industrial touches. They painted out the wood work black (OH YES THEY DID!), and kept the walls white for contrast. Warm colours in the furnishings keep things cozy. This home ROCKS!

Lakeside classic 

I was going to write about the juxtaposition of the drama of a site and the mundane of everyday living but then I read the architect's descriprtion and it was just so right ...

Holidays beside the waters edge, water skiing and trout fishing, are wonderful memories for families. The bach is a keeper of these memories, which are at stake when work is done to preserve and update it. 

It was a process of saving and improving, of folding in another layer of history in a way that would not obliterate the past. The result is a nest of humble kiwi buildings, some parts new some original, that will now cope admirably with the demands of the future.

Nixon Tulloch Fortey encore

It has been a little while since Jo featured Melbourne architects Nixon Tulloch Fortey so I thought I would do a little update on their stellar designs. They are all about minimal architecture on the inside and maximum impact on the outside. This first kitchen, despite me not usually liking all white kitchens, has me totally drooling. It is just so clean and sleek! I love this firm.
