Block

A tight budget may have dictated the use of simple, inexpensive building materials but architects Carter Williamson have taken the humble concrete block and created an elegant 2 storey house in Camperdown, Sydney that not only respects its Victorian era neighbours but provides a modern shell with character and sense of space and light that belies the hefty building block.

Indoor/outdoor

This bedroom suite created by Minosa Design is out of this world. It's a space so beautiful that if I saw it in person I'd have to have a seat in case I passed out. This takes indoor/outdoor living to the extreme. This home is perched and cantilevering off a hill in the prestigious suburb of Dover Heights in Sydney’s East. It sits on the cliff face with 2 levels above ground and four levels down. The Brief: To create a resort style ensuite retreat, that incorporated the natural beauty of the cliff face behind and had views to the beautiful Bondi ahead.  It was to be cutting edge in its design, it had to defy convention, be private and fit in with the sharp architectural style.  It was decided from this special design process that the entire space needed to be thought about as one whole floor, rather than one room. With no dividing internal walls to obstruct views it was the only way the special design could be resolved without difficulty or any further exceptions.

The Taringa House

A contemporary extension to an historic house carves its way down the slope of an inner Brisbane ridge line. This architect's home plays old against new, street facade against the views through the backyard, intimate against expansive. The original timber cottage remains as guest house and entry while the addition is about family living and the landscape. The Taringa House by Loucas Zahos Architects.

Haberfield house

There's something about mid-century style architecture that really interests me - the casual vibe, excellent quality of light, interesting window placement, almost excessive use of wood...and this house is an absolute gem. Lahznimmo Architects resurrected this Federation era home in Sydney in 2010: The new works are concentrated at the rear of the house, where a dark glazed brick clad living cube creates a grand room with generous openings to the garden. The cube creates a secondary, contemporary form that is clearly distinct from the front of the house. A timber batten clad outdoor room provides a protected space for open-air dining. The space between the outdoor room, the living cube and a detached masonry garage is stitched together with a timber deck set level with the internal spaces. A home that provides serious indoor-outdoor living has been a dream of mine, and this one nails it right on the head.

Pascali/Semerdjian Arquitetura

I have more fabulous spaces for you from Brazil - this time it's architecture firm Pascali/Semerdjian Arquitetura. I'm totally getting window envy, and now dreaming of grass and green things, and having a fireplace again (had one in my last house, miss it dearly). And check out the little "star" lights in the second last photo. So pretty!
