Mid Mod Mojo

It was a 1960s house that was too small for its family. They loved their home but they needed more room. Nothing huge and definitely not something that ignored its mid century bones. Enter Melbourne-based Nest Architects. The house grew to meet the family's needs, kept its mid mod mojo and everyone lived happily ever after.

An apartment with a retro edge by The Archers

My favourite interiors are those that cannot be replicated, that are edgy and eclectic and have a retro vibe. The Archers made that happen with the gut renovation of this bland 80's condo and created something unique and fabulous. The client, an art advisor, asked for "great floors and great lighting". The only elements left standing after demolition were the clear anodized aluminum windows; we repeated the material by introducing a series of aluminum pocket doors and interior windows with white glass panels in varying degrees of transparency, bringing natural light into formerly dark interior spaces. The new floor plan enlarges the primary entertaining zones, and creates a clean backdrop for ever-changing art installations. The floors are wide planks of reclaimed oak that only align to the central spine of the apartment. Many green materials have been incorporated, including recycled matte porcelain wall paneling in the bathrooms. Furnishings include a custom olive wood dining table by The Archers and pieces by Lina Bo Bardi, Oscar Niemeyer, and Warren McArthur.

Spaces of note by Luigi Rosselli

EPIC BATHROOM!!! I want to stare at this the rest of the day.

This marble is unbelievably beautiful. And with a thin profile it could not be more perfect in this kitchen. 

There is nothing fancy about this dining room but the combo of the Thonet chairs, pale yellow walls, and light fixture are simply yummy, and then you look up and BAM!

These chunky stairs. That glass framed wall. The tumbling block tile. YES YES YES. 

If I ever decide I want a graphic backsplash, THIS IS IT.

Beach house + a book lover's dream by Luigi Rosselli

A beach house on stilts. Impeccably designed stairs with storage. A book lover's dream. This beautiful home is creation of Australian architect Luigi Rosselli. Behind the white picket fence on the front street, a circular stair leads to a relaxed timber veranda , ultramarine weatherboards and the original white timber windows make for a breezy, summery house. Bleached interiors reverberate with crisp and clear classical violin practices and hold a myriad of books encased in every wall stud and recess. At the back of the house, facing into a small tropical garden dense with palms and ferns, there is a garden room with a massive sliding shutter that can be secured, and protects the fully furnished room when no one is at home.  The stair takes position centre stage in the house, supported by a solid stud wall filled with bookshelves and bathed in natural light.
