A couple of new projects by extrArchitecture

Maddalena Cannarsa of extrArchitecture is an Italian architect living in London, and Jo featured her flat a while back here. She emailed recently wanting to share a couple of her recent projects with us. This first project is the interior design refurbishment of a home in Notting Hill. The flooring is beautiful (wide plank all the way!) and the kitchen is simple and sleek.

As simple as black and white

Clean lined, contemporary kitchen in stylish black and white by Sisällä Interior Design. Warmly minimal, deceptively simple. Plus it helps to have a butler's pantry.

Contrast House

How to modernize an old home on a tiny lot and make it the best house on the street! The intent of the remaking of this narrow 125-year-old residence was two-fold: to increase natural light in the interior using contrast, and to reduce the house's ecological impact.An increase of natural light is accomplished through both physical and perceptual means. Physically, the long, narrow house - only 11 feet wide on the rear façade - was reconfigured to allow direct sight lines to new window openings. Perceptually, contrast was used as a means to "brighten" internal spaces without direct access to natural light. Contrasting elements are placed in proximity to produce an intensified effect. At each level, the stair is punctuated by a black element to define space — be it floating bookcases housing the owner's collectibles, or a chalk board wall for play — and to create contrast to visually intensify the natural light spilling down from above.

A modern home in Hintonburg

I have driven by this home in Ottawa's Hintonburg neighbourhood several times and always loved how simple the exterior is. For an infill project amidst a slew of very old brick homes, this seems to blend in more than one would expect. I was also dying to know what the inside looked like, and now I know, because I discovered it was designed by built, and featured on their website. The architecture is simple and modern, with a WOW kitchen and some really cool bathrooms. Love it!! (Photos I think by Justin Van Leeuwen)
