Confluence House

I have shared a few projects in the past by New York-based Incorporated Architecture & Design such as this apartment and this apartment but I also shared this really cool cabin-like simple and modern home. They have since designed another similar home but this time larger. The simplicity of the structure is absolute perfection (IMHO). Concrete floors, wood framed doors and windows and those gorgeous wood kitchen cabinets lend an organic, raw feel to the space and brings the outdoors in...with the help of some pretty awesome plants too. I would live here in a heartbeat.

Clerkenwell lofts 2 + 3

A couple of years ago I featured this London loft by Inside Out Architecture. The project was so successful, they recently completed 2 more renovations in the same building. The owners of a 3rd floor apartment in this converted industrial building were desperately in need of more space for their growing family. Their novel solution was to buy part of their next-door-neighbour's apartment, taking the opportunity to refurbish both, resulting in adjoining projects within the same industrial shell but with very different outcomes. In the family home at no.15, the choice of materials sought to create a light and playful atmosphere, incorporating the clients' love of design classics. With space being tight, most partitions were transformed into useful pieces of joinery. The kitchen incorporates a L-shaped stepped concrete countertop to pay homage to the existing building and divide the living spaces. Whitewashed birch plywood, whitewashed timber floors and plain white joinery provide a neutral background for elements of vivid colour. One element that stood out for me was the concrete beams in the first apartment and how fantstic they look with the rest of the ceiling covered in drywall. Love the concrete countertop too!

Kitchen details

This kitchen is INCREDIBLE! In this extensively renovated Brooklyn brownstone by Elizabeth Roberts/Ensemble Architecture, the wood floor was replaced with a poured cement plaster floor and the original wood closet was retrofitted to contain the kitchen cupboard, gas range and refrigerator. Brilliant!

Working on a Saturday

The floors are candy pink! SHINY. CANDY. PINK. No need to drag me into work on a weekend if my office looked like this. Yum! The offices of NGRS Recruiting Company in Moscow by Crosby Studios.

Le Renard et La Chouette

A little more rustic goodness to end the day. This restaurant/coffee shop/bar located in Québec was designed by APPAREIL architecture. A little bit Scandinavian and a little bit French, the design is simple, raw and so lovely. Remember folks, while you're tearing through layers....maybe you should just leave 'er be.
