Modern in green and black

I have fallen completely in love with this house. Modern. Simple details. Recurring circles (the firm's signature architectural element). Drama with green cabinetry, black walls and tumbling block tile. And if you ever needed to see wall-to-wall carpet in a bedroom done right, astroturf green for the win!

In-Between Room

"Additions reflect upon the lives of both the inhabitants and the houses themselves. The in-between room is a small, celebrated addition at the rear of an existing Queenslander, one which binds and redefines an existing detached two level tower and claims the interstitial space as its own.

This new room is designed as a counterpoint to the interiors present in the original house. An 'exploded space' which recognises the external walls of both house and tower as its positive edges and treats the remaining elevations as transparencies. A threshold territory engaged with the landscape, accessing the long distant views. The internal belly of the folded plywood ceiling follows the geometry of the frame, drawing the eyes up in an unobserved chapel effect. The grounded concrete slab alludes to the notion of an external courtyard, indeed the in-between room has been designed as an ambiguous space considered more natural when opened than closed."

Exciting new Australian architecture that explores the sense of place and space as well as the interaction between occupants and building. In-Between Room by Brisbane-based Phorm architecture + design.

A modern addition to a deco home

A modern addition to an Art Deco home by Folk Architects has been brought to life by Sydney-based design studio Amber Road. What could have read as disparate spaces now references deco elements through colour, texture and a bespoke light fitting in the entrance. A thoroughly stylish family home.

Simple sophistication

A case study in sophisticated simplicity, this Toorak Apartment by Griffith Design Studio looks effortless but don't be deceived. Its minimalist black and white palette with accents of wood and brass is beautifully and carefully composed.

I'm in Melbourne (Yay Melbourne for the win again!) stalking a family home in Kew. A 4 bedroom family home with pool renovated by a well know Aussie reality TV reno show couple (the bathrooms are a dead giveaway), it recently sold for $2.9 million. Yikes! The real estate market here in Australia is overheated. Still congratulations to them. It's a lovely makeover. Link here while it lasts.

P.S. Don't you hate early evening photos high on HDR? This place would photograph so well in "natural" light.
