Classic architecture by Stanley Dixon

You may remember this contemporary barn Jo featured a few months ago by Atlanta-based firm D. Stanley Dixon Architect, Inc.. I was poking around Stan's portfolio the other day and was mesmerized by many more of his projects so I thought I would share some that I really love. This is all soooo beautiful - classic architecture with an understated, simple aesthetic with subtle modern influences.

A contemporary blonde brick holiday home

Are you old enough to remember blonde brick? I am. Just the thought of it has me cringing. Many crimes against design sensibility were committed in the 70s in the name of the insipid blocks. Fortunately the 80s saw the popularity of blonde bricks wane, replaced by their chocolate counterparts. (Urgh! Dark brown bricks with tumbled edges ... that's a horror story for another time.) Back to blonde bricks or should that be that blonde bricks are back. Loving this contemporary home with a retro vibe at Sorrento on Victoria's Mornington Peninsula. A series of pavilions make this holiday house just perfect for a getaway by yourself or with a crowd, this blonde beauty is by Melbourne-based residential design and construct company InForm.

Modern extension by Heartly

Heartly designed and monitored the transformation of this dilapidated cottage into a much loved and admired family home. Careful consideration of flow and use of space was paramount to the success of this project on a small inner suburban Melbourne block.

It's what Australian architects and interior designers do so well. Take a small, older home with confused layout. Design a modern extension to create the much sort after open-plan, family living yet, importantly, retain the presence of the original home within the streetscape. And may I just say "Hello bike room!"
