Scale of Ply

Like a giant origami box or an exercise in geometry this remodel and extension of a Victorian house in Dublin by Noji "uses plywood as a primary and secondary structural material to replace an aged conservatory that acted as the main light source for the ground floor. The prefabricated plywood structure allows for a series of interconnecting triangular plains positioned to allow light deep into the plan as the sun moves through the day." Love the intersecting lines and the tumble of triangles but the math involved in its design would have blown my mind.

Kitchen love

It's a modern kitchen with a difference. There's a hint of the traditional, a touch of Art Deco and a freshness of the future. The wall of storage behind sliding glass is particularly eye-catching. Unexpected and custom. What's not to love? By Sydney-based Nina Maya Interiors.

The Grey House in Camber

It's a dream I've always harboured. An unpretentious beachside house, comfortable with an almost spartan beauty ... almost. I would always have room for a found object or a time worn piece.

A house a little something like this. The Grey House Camber via Light Locations.

House of Mirrors

Mirrors. They reflect light. They increase the sense of space in a room. They can mess with your mind ... in a good way in the case of the "invisible" pillar in this top floor apartment in Plaça Catalunya in the centre of Barcelona. The renovation by Nook Architects uses "contemporary and warm finishes (to) highlight the original envelope, which is only altered to bring back a spirit more honest to the building’s tectonics and to allow it to evolve to today’s standard of comfort and living style." In other words stylish modern living in an amazing old building in a great location. Perfect.

Dark side

My love for British kitchen designers deVOL is no secret. It's no surprise that I'm smitten by their latest design for this Petersham cottage. Dark, atmospheric, almost other worldly, memorable.
