Modern country

A simple extension to an existing house takes advantage of the views to the surrounding countryside. The feature window in the living area frames the vista while the wood burner sits to the side allowing the occupants to take it all in. Love the use of tongue and groove panelling to add to the country flavour. The rooms are almost Shaker like in their simplicity but there is no doubting that this is modern Australian design. If I'm not curled up in front of the fire and the view I'll be soaking in the tub with the view. The Plinth House by Luke Stanley Architects.

39 White Street

I LOVE this loft....mostly because of the kitchen. SWOON! Aside from the lack of windows, the combo of black granite, white marble, walnut and subway tiles is pretty much perfection. This 19th century Tribeca space belongs to raad studio principal James Ramsey. Original details were preserved (thumbs up!), such as old windows, tin ceilings, and brick walls and some windows were added to create more light. The 300-bottle wine rack made out of terra cotta drainage pipes Beluga whale skeleton made from a plaster mold over the dining table are rad. :)

Lines

This townhouse development responds to the existing streetscape by appearing as a large single residence. Within, each dwelling is highly individual; each with their own character, dramatic interior spaces and private gardens. A simple, robust palette of materials reinforce the sculptural form and ensure the building will age gracefully.

What I love most about this townhouse is the statement repeat of black lines, in the screen, in the panelling, in the staircase. A contemporary stylish space, Washington Avenue by Melbourne based Pandolfini Architects.

Magnolia remodel

This remodel has managed to blow me away. Another one masterminded by SHED Architecture & Design. Located in Seattle, this 1914 craftsman had the exterior and main floor reworked to include a new kitchen, bathroom, laundry and backyard connection whilst keeping original details intact. Modern now blends with classic details and brings this house from ineffective to WOW.
