Nobbs Radford Architects

New against old. Blocks of concrete and narrow recessed glass. Outward and in and the relationship between the two. Open plan extension to a Victorian era house where the new contrasts against the old. Internal walls of concrete are warmed by wood. It's a restrained palette of concrete, black aluminium, stainless steel and oak. Glebe House by Nobbs Radford Architects.

Stalking ferro-cement organic

I never thought I would catch myself typing the words ferro-cement organic. Being of a certain age I have vague memories of chicken wire and concrete disasters lurking in under house games rooms or pseudo hippy hang outs. The type of weekend DIY that seemed like a good idea at the time until the sheer scope of the job overwhelmed the home owner. I blame it on Antoni Gaudí, Frank Lloyd Wright and Antti Lovag. The Hollander House, built in the late 60s early 70s by architect David Hollander, is no weekend hodge podge. Now recognised as a icon of Australian organic architecture its current interior designer owner has listed the house for sale with Modern House.  Part Fred Flintstone, part scifi, all retrolicious you can read more of its history and design here. (Real estate listing also here while it lasts.)

OOOOX

A colour palette of black, white and grey. Slick, hard surfaces. Think concrete and metal warmed sparingly with wood. Too stark? Too cold? Or just right for your minimalist style? My favourites? the bathrooms especially the white one and the box shelving in the living area. Modern interiors by Prague based OOOOX Architects.

LOVE!

This 1820's home is located in Santa Teresa, a 'hood of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It is GORGEOUS, and is the home of Bia Lessa and was completely renovated inside by architect Camila Toledo. The floor, the windows, the sleeping dog...I want it all! (Via arquitetura & construção)
