Shadow

It's like a shadow house, a phantom building. There but not there. Starkly minimalist this modern addition to a historic home is cartoon like in its form, its all black walls and roof helping it "disappear". Housing a garage and additional living space it is connected to the existing stone building by a glass walkway allowing for a strong delineation between old and new. Kensington Park Residence by South Australian Proske Architects.

A photographer's newly built home in Copenhagen

Architecture, interior and design practice Studio David Thulstrup knows how to create beauty from something very raw and industrial, making this home a total urban dream. The renowned photographer Peter Krasilnikoff (who took these photos) commissioned us for his private residence in Copenhagen. Our inspiration evolved from worn-out warehouses and factories with their blackened steel and old bricks; a concept which was sparked by the desire to retain the three raw-brick walls of the old garage on site. The design is focused around a central mirror-clad atrium, which floods all three floors of the residence with natural light. The atrium is lush with specially selected grasses, plants and a feature tree which is visible from all floors - creating a central and bright oasis.

The refurbishment and extension of original building has seen the architect owner add a fresh Scandinavian touch, like a summerhouse a long way from Sweden. A pared back home, almost minimalist - Stanfordville Cottage by Larson and Paul.

collected:

  1. brought or placed together; forming an aggregation from various sources:
  2. having control; calm

Perhaps an equal share of both. What a beautiful pied-à-terre in New York's Chelsea by Montreal-based Les Ensembliers.
