The Arch House

Aptly named the Arch House, Italian architecture firm A2BC has taken minimalism to a new level with the renovation of this Milan apartment. It was an operation of purification of the elements built over time that have marred the structure and the original historical characteristics of the space. This process has brought the soul of the place to light; twelve arches strung along the bearing structure that longitudinally divides the apartment in two creating three separate zones transversally: living, dining and kitchen, and bedrooms. Communication between the environments only occurs at the arched passageways. The project develops through the enhancement of these classical architectural elements that become the protagonists of the spatial scene. White as the dominant color and the concrete floor underline the intent to maintain a neutral approach in order to highlight the architecture of the space and its characteristic elements. I have a couple of archways in my home - and now I want MORE! Those concrete floors with all these cats would be awesome too.

The vertical loft

Designed as a live/work space for an artist the standout design feature of this home is the freestanding OSB shelving system that rises over four floors with access from each level. The first two floors are devoted the studio space and storage with racking system for paintings and the cube storage while climbing higher brings you to the living areas on the top two floors. Modern minimalism contained within a 100 year old shell. DL House by Nuno Alves de Carvalho of Portuguese architecture and design firm URBAstudios.

Casa Sumaré

A couple of months ago Jo featured a project by Brazilian architect Felipe Hess that was fresh and colourful with some fun graphic patterns. I came across this project of Felipe's that is quite the opposite. Not what we typically see from a Brazilian - this one is very subdued, modern and minimalist. I love it for those reasons. And because someone clearly has great taste in chairs (Hans Wegner's Hoop and Peacock).

Rolies + Dubois architecten

Rolies + Dubois architecten are based in Antwerp, Belgium and they make magic happen with their minimalist, modern designs. I am especially smitten with the loft in the first of this selection of photos. I would just add about 100 plants and my cat herd and call it home. And the pool house in the last few photos is simple, dark and all you really need.
