Andy Martin encore

Please don't ask me why it's called the "Beach House" when it sits in west London. Perhaps it's the bright, casual vibe. Lots of bleached timber, pops of colour, walls of glass to let in the light and capture the sea garden view. A family home that is casually stylish, at ease with its Edwardian era heritage and its modern extension. Evocative of being on holiday in the city. The reason doesn't really matter. Beach House by Andy Martin Architects.

Newfound favourite

Found in the portfolio of Los Angeles-based Shapiro Joyal Studio. Love it.


Modern take on an old worker's cottage

A contemporary extension to an existing character residential cottage in Brisbane, Queensland where it was important to retain the integrity of the original 1906 cottage while providing two levels of extra living space. Love the integration of inside and out including the sliding window walls and the now you see it, now you don't bath. Wooloowin House by bureau^proberts.

Working on a Saturday

I think you know my catch phrase by now. If you have to drag your sorry self into work on a weekend then at least it should be somewhere stylish. Yummy mint and wood and brass. Clerkenwell Offices by London design firm Play Associates.


A loft in a former molasses factory

Another loft to end off the work week, this time though it is alot less raw/industrial (which is a bit sad if there was more that could have been salvaged). This loft was a gut renovation of a two-bedroom loft in a landmark building in the heart of Soho, NYC. Each floor of this building, which had been used to process molasses until in the 1890s, was sloped toward a large central drain designed to evacuate waste. To remedy this issue, we elevated and leveled the floors throughout the apartment. All new plumbing, electrical, HVAC, and rift white oak flooring were installed.
