Stalking 1

Down a narrow street in Surry Hills Sydney you will find this monochrome conversion of a former grocery warehouse by Ian Moore Architects. If you were a real life stalker you would find a melange of old bricks, new steel and glass but if you stalk the pages of online real estate sites you will see behind this intriguing facade. The award winning, one bedroom home unfolds over a number of staggered levels. Anything existing is white. Anything new is black. Austere yet refined, controlled yet creative. 19th century meets 21st, industrial becomes residential. Could you live here? Yes? Then follow the link while it lasts and perhaps you'll be the new owner.

The perfect marriage

In a wood in Amagansett, Long Island there is a coming together of architect and client, of the rural building traditions of Long Island and Finnish Design. Three discreet buildings bound together by glass passages. Shingle and siding, rural and industrial, communal and private, view and personal space, polished concrete and painted wood. A marriage of man made and nature, of a building and a home. A perfect marriage. Amagansett House by Bagchee Architects.

Dark shadows bright light

Hiding silently in the shadows of moss covered trees, dark walls blend seamlessly with old growth. Enter the door and all changes. Wide walls of windows capture the light throwing black and white interiors into stark relief. Wooden accents warm and burnish. Retro meets modern. Light versus dark. Sharp angles against the softening canopy of mature trees. The Arboretum Residence remodel by Portland, Oregon based Skylab Architects.

Stalking black and white

A small terrace house in Paddington, Sydney provides plenty of inspiration for those who like their interiors black and white. Somehow they manage to squeeze 3 bedrooms (although they are not using them as such), 2 bathrooms and a flow through dining, kitchen, living space into this small inner city footprint. Tight yes but the simple colour palette, sleek surfaces and walls that open out to courtyards and the sky expand the sense of space. I must admit my favourite room is the bathroom. Graphic and chic. The atrium kitchen is clever too. Link here while it lasts.
