A sophisticated waterfront apartment

A contemporary upgrade to a Sydney Harbour apartment by Stacey Kouros Design. A limited palette of neutrals with a touch of blue and black is the perfect foil to the stunning water views and striking art collection. The result is an unstuffy sophistication, a liveable luxury.

Modern in green and black

I have fallen completely in love with this house. Modern. Simple details. Recurring circles (the firm's signature architectural element). Drama with green cabinetry, black walls and tumbling block tile. And if you ever needed to see wall-to-wall carpet in a bedroom done right, astroturf green for the win! Urquhart Estate by Melbourne-based Kennedy Nolan

Hotel Julien

Time for our Friday escape. Yes if you're chained to your desk at work and need a virtual getaway then why not join me at Hotel Julien in the heart of the historic Belgian city of Antwerp. Two 16th century properties lovingly restored, their historic features effortlessly combined with contemporary furnishings. I'll meet you on the terrace with those lovely rooftop views. Well at least in my daydreams.

A barn conversion in Berkshire

The conversion of a rundown barn in Berkshire saw London-based Indigo Design Associates create a beautiful contemporary home within the old stone walls. A soft colour palette of greys and whites is enhanced by injections of blue while natural fabrics and old timbers add warmth to the minimalist shell. Simple clean modern lines celebrate the vast barn space while private spaces are more intimate.

In-Between Room

"Additions reflect upon the lives of both the inhabitants and the houses themselves. The in-between room is a small, celebrated addition at the rear of an existing Queenslander, one which binds and redefines an existing detached two level tower and claims the interstitial space as its own.

This new room is designed as a counterpoint to the interiors present in the original house. An 'exploded space' which recognises the external walls of both house and tower as its positive edges and treats the remaining elevations as transparencies. A threshold territory engaged with the landscape, accessing the long distant views. The internal belly of the folded plywood ceiling follows the geometry of the frame, drawing the eyes up in an unobserved chapel effect. The grounded concrete slab alludes to the notion of an external courtyard, indeed the in-between room has been designed as an ambiguous space considered more natural when opened than closed."

Exciting new Australian architecture that explores the sense of place and space as well as the interaction between occupants and building. In-Between Room by Brisbane-based Phorm architecture + design.
