Granit

I stumbled upon the website of London-based architecture firm Granit Chartered Architects and several of their projects wowed me. They are clearly experts in the art of transforming traditional British homes into bigger, better and more modern structures that keep original details intact where possible. Here are a random assortment of photos from a few of their projects that captured my attention.

Mid century modern

Let's end the week with a contemporary take on the classic mid century bachelor pad that hangs from the hillsides of California. This Trousdale Estates, Beverley Hills home is by Studio William Heffner but screw up your eyes, stare at the screen, and let your mind wander to episodes of Mad Men. The setting is spectacular and the house a mid century modern marvel.

Modern country

A simple extension to an existing house takes advantage of the views to the surrounding countryside. The feature window in the living area frames the vista while the wood burner sits to the side allowing the occupants to take it all in. Love the use of tongue and groove panelling to add to the country flavour. The rooms are almost Shaker like in their simplicity but there is no doubting that this is modern Australian design. If I'm not curled up in front of the fire and the view I'll be soaking in the tub with the view. The Plinth House by Luke Stanley Architects.

39 White Street

I LOVE this loft....mostly because of the kitchen. SWOON! Aside from the lack of windows, the combo of black granite, white marble, walnut and subway tiles is pretty much perfection. This 19th century Tribeca space belongs to raad studio principal James Ramsey. Original details were preserved (thumbs up!), such as old windows, tin ceilings, and brick walls and some windows were added to create more light. The 300-bottle wine rack made out of terra cotta drainage pipes Beluga whale skeleton made from a plaster mold over the dining table are rad. :)
