Step inside the unassuming facade of this 1950s warehouse and you'll find a minimalist open plan home. Hints of the building's industrial past remain but as a shell that contains this super slick modern space. Seamless Corian benches, stainless steel, strip lighting and painted concrete play against a mix of contemporary and mid century furniture. I would, however be more at ease with this house if they would just move the shaving mirror away from the ethanol heater. Ouch! Is it a clue that the owner is hot stuff?

I can't get enough of lofts...and this one is a really cool mix of fold and new. Located in Russia (or Latvia?) this 2 story apartment was renovated with ideas of keeping it minimalist and bright, and to show a contrast of eras while preserving the original features. The windows are incredible, and while the kitchen seems dark which would make me crazy, I really like the rest of the open layout. Via The Village.
So much more than a pile of stones. The transformation of a ramshackle series of buildings into a minimalist, contemporary home is a thing of beauty while showing respect for place, materials and history. Rustic yet ultra modern the stone house in Scaiano, Switzerland by Wespi de Meuron Romeo Architects.
