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).

Out the back

It's what Australian architects seem to do so well. The extension, the addition to an old house that opens the living areas up and out. House facades and streetscapes are maintained while out the back clever two storey additions fulfil family needs for modern living. Love the monochromatic palette of this home warmed by the rich wood accents. Contemporary, clean lined, sleek and stylish (although I'm a little worried that, at least here in Australia, the Flos Lighting Aim Lamps are in danger of going the way of Tom Dixon's Beat Lights and become ubiquitous). Elwood House by Melbourne-based Architecture and Interior Design practice Therefore Studio.

Frame House

When modern architecture and black comes together and produces something that dreams are made of. The Frame House Melbourne by Carr Design Group. Situated on a large block in Melbourne, the family home exposes little to the street. Behind the textured stucco wall a striking house is revealed within a lush secret garden. The rhythm of the colonnade and overall proportions evoke the elegance of Georgian architecture. Conversely the house is bold and contemporary with its robust steel frame supporting a finely detailed metal screen and zinc cladding.

A summer house in Norway

Summer is upon many of us and I think I just found the ideal summer house. Yes, I can imagine taking the summer off work and hanging out here basking in the sun, swimming in the lake and enjoying the jaw-dropping views. It is incredible how architecture firm Jensen & Skodvin incorporated the side of the mountain into the home. This home is a true architectural masterpiece. (Thank you Silje for the link!)
