Out the back

It's what Australian architects seem to do so well. The extension, the addition to an old house that opens the living areas up and out. House facades and streetscapes are maintained while out the back clever two storey additions fulfil family needs for modern living. Love the monochromatic palette of this home warmed by the rich wood accents. Contemporary, clean lined, sleek and stylish (although I'm a little worried that, at least here in Australia, the Flos Lighting Aim Lamps are in danger of going the way of Tom Dixon's Beat Lights and become ubiquitous). Elwood House by Melbourne-based Architecture and Interior Design practice Therefore Studio.

New and old and Technè

Australian design is shining at the moment. Like a beacon for modern living, honest, crafted, all about light and connection with the outdoors, the interactions between people and living space, respect for the old and exultation of the new. Fitzroy House, a renovation and extension to an inner-city Melbourne historic home by Technè Architecture + Interior Design.

Working on a Saturday

It's on my bucket list to visit if I ever get to New York but can you imagine if this was your workplace? I'd never want to go home. I'd work for free. A florist shop makes me happy even if it's just a blank room and some buckets of flowers but this, oh this is so much more. Saipua, design by Tacklebox Architecture

Up on the roof

I'm rounding out the week with another project from French design firm GCG Architectes, a rooftop home and garden terrace. The architects modified an off-the-plan house, streamlining, ironing out layout problems, improving functionality and brightness. Then the fun began with interiors by Kierszbaum Intérieurs. Eclectic in style, exuberant in taste, fun and fab meets OTT, it is like a magpie collection of trinkets and treasures. Just when you think you cannot take any more there is the garden. Oh the garden. A little piece of paradise on the banks of the Seine.

Frame House

When modern architecture and black comes together and produces something that dreams are made of. The Frame House Melbourne by Carr Design Group. Situated on a large block in Melbourne, the family home exposes little to the street. Behind the textured stucco wall a striking house is revealed within a lush secret garden. The rhythm of the colonnade and overall proportions evoke the elegance of Georgian architecture. Conversely the house is bold and contemporary with its robust steel frame supporting a finely detailed metal screen and zinc cladding.
