A modern NYC townhouse

I love everything about this modern 3200 sq ft townhouse in Brooklyn by architect Ben Hansen. I want to pick it up and move it right where my existing crap 12' wide house is now. What's not to love?! A simple but modern exterior, massive windows on both ends to let in tons of light, several exterior spaces, unfussy, clean interior layout...this is going in my inspiration folder.

Little white box

"Townhouse in Landskrona. The narrow site is sandwiched between very old neighboring buildings. Three thin slabs are projected into the open volume, softly dividing its functions. The continuous interior space is opening up to the street, to an intimate garden, and to the sky."

A stylish white box takes root like a weed in a city sidewalk crack, grows towards the sun and shows that it is a beautiful flower. Clever urban infill design by Swedish architectural firm Elding Oscarson.

Resolution: 4 Architecture extras

I'm digging the portfolio of Resolution: 4 Architecture so much I thought I'd feature a random grouping of photos from their portfolio that caught my eye. I LOVE that house above. That's what I've been envisioning for my home - a creative way to create privacy in front from people on the street.

A Brooklyn townhouse

This townhouse in Brooklyn, renovated by Resolution: 4 Architecture, is UNREAL. Period moldings, tall windows bathing each room in glorious light, hardwood floors I am completely envious of, and an addition at the rear with my favourite black multi-pane windows (is there a name for these in the photo above?)...it's a beautiful combination of old and new. Just how I like to mix things up.

Stalking Paddington

Flicking, flicking, flicking through real estate listings. I'm high speed stalking. It needs to catch my eye, hold my attention for more and a few seconds. What's behind that red door? Love the bespoke cabinetry, the beautifully tiled bathroom. No wonder. This Paddington, Sydney terrace has been renovated by one of my favourite architects Scott Weston. Now I wish I was buying, not stalking. Link here while it lasts.
