Stalking modern industrial

I'm stalking in the Sydney suburb of Balmain. Once the home of factories,warehouses, wharves and the workers employed there it has now undergone a renaissance becoming one of Sydney's most sort after suburbs. Today's home, by architects Carter Williamson, references the industrial past of the suburb but its contemporary design is all about space, style and luxury. 3 levels and a roof terrace with stunning city views, 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms (the ensuite is stunning) and stackable parking for 2 cars. No price on the listing but you can be sure it's multi-millions. Link here while it lasts.

Stalking exposed red brick

A traditional red brick facade hides a contemporary reworking of this 2 bedroom townhouse with a distinct industrial meets New York loft vibe.

I'll definitely take that kitchen and the bathroom has some great inspiration for a very common layout but that back deck needs a rethink. I'm stalking in the Melbourne suburb of Prahran. Link here while it lasts.

The Stables

Strong, resolved and enriching architecture. That is what New Zealand design boutique practice McKinney + Windeatt Architects aims to provide and their project, The Stables is a fine example. From its ivy clad walls to the dramatic profile of floor to ceiling, wall to wall steel and glass windows curtains flapping in the breeze, from the cosy confines of the exposed brick kitchen to the bright sunlight streaming in to the adjoining private terrace, all joined by the consistent march of the connecting staircase the house is part stage, part gallery, all home.

Soho Loft

The romance of a New York loft. Large open spaces, exposed brick, massive columns holding up equally massive beams and the windows, oh the windows! This Soho loft by Drew McGukin Interiors is an eclectic mix of urban chic, vintage finds, industrial riffs and personal treasures. It's stylish yet relaxed and real.
