Concrete and wood

Concrete, wood, brick, floor to ceiling windows....sounds like the making of a sweet apartment I would say. This space by Brazilian architecture firm Play Arquitetura (the folks that brought you the cat apartment) just needs a few rugs to warm up the space and a few more accessories and it is pretty much on point.

A family oasis

This bright and airy extension to a California bungalow by Melbourne-based BG Architecture is all about flexible open plan living and a seamless transition between inside and out. Favourite bits? The generous daybed by the expansive window (which you just know will hide great storage) and the simple, modern lines of the kitchen warmed by wood and the terracotta lights. These stylish family quarters are the perfect relaxed oasis from the bustle of the outside world.

Steel butterfly

A concrete, glass and steel butterfly alighting on a Californian meadow. Wings spread in the sun. Light on the land despite its monumental materials. An owner's dream. An architect's creation. The Butterfly house by Feldman Architecture.

A weekend home in Burgundy

I am completely infatuated with this home in Burgundy, France. It is the weekend getaway for interior designer Clarisse Prudent and her family, and was completely renovated over the span of 15 months. It is a gem, with concrete floors, very basic architecture, lots of windows, lofty on the top floor and filled with lots of vintage pieces paired with a few classics. My favourite touch - the photographic artwork. Via The Socialite Family.

Sawmill House

A collaboration between two brothers, one a sculptor, the other an architect, both with a passion for re-use and recycle. One tonne blocks of waste concrete anchor the building within the site, an old sawmill, and produce a patchwork of colour and texture. At 100sqm the house is not large but a series of moving walls and doors open the inside to the out expanding the visual boundaries of the rooms. Sawmill House by Archier.
