In-Between Room

"Additions reflect upon the lives of both the inhabitants and the houses themselves. The in-between room is a small, celebrated addition at the rear of an existing Queenslander, one which binds and redefines an existing detached two level tower and claims the interstitial space as its own.

This new room is designed as a counterpoint to the interiors present in the original house. An 'exploded space' which recognises the external walls of both house and tower as its positive edges and treats the remaining elevations as transparencies. A threshold territory engaged with the landscape, accessing the long distant views. The internal belly of the folded plywood ceiling follows the geometry of the frame, drawing the eyes up in an unobserved chapel effect. The grounded concrete slab alludes to the notion of an external courtyard, indeed the in-between room has been designed as an ambiguous space considered more natural when opened than closed."

Exciting new Australian architecture that explores the sense of place and space as well as the interaction between occupants and building. In-Between Room by Brisbane-based Phorm architecture + design.

Mid Mod Country Home

There are several words which when combined make my salivate with anticipation. "Mid mod" and "country home" are combinations that definitely tweak my interest but "mid mod country home" definitely has my quivering. Add in "Shelter Island" and well it's all over. What's that commandment? "Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's goods." When it comes to this wonderful holiday home then I'm definitely a sinner. Architecture by Andre Tchelistcheff Architects and interior design by Gachot.

A quiet beauty

Understated elegance and quiet beauty spring to mind when I look at these pictures. The house doesn't scream or shout. It's not brash and brassy. It is the simple luxury of quality whether recently crafted or inherited. Classic, comfortable, timeless. By California-based architectural firm Chambers + Chambers.

double g

I have had an undying design crush on Parisian architecture and interior design firm double g for too many years now. Yes it helps if you start with a building with great bones but no-one fleshes out those bones better than this French duo. This 200sqm apartment in Saint-Georges is just sublime.
