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.
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.
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.

Fridays should be about good things, and lofts are reeeeeally good things. I will be featuring 2 lofts today, and this one is an absolute dream of exposed brick, beams and columns, modern additions and the coolest concrete wall. This 2,000 sqf renovation of a former garment factory floor in New York’s Lower East Side serves as a casual 1-bedroom loft apartment for the owner, and a place to entertain and relax. The layout provides a maximum of open studio space and a secluded sleep and bath area. Inspired by the rustic materials in the previous manufacturing space , the aesthetics of the loft combines rough and simple materials with bold industrial objects and colors.
