A bit simpler to follow up

When old and new come together

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.

Stones

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.

Wide open arms

The two intersecting blocks that comprise this Woollahra house by Sydney-based architectural firm Tzannes Associates have been arranged to suit an irregular site. More so they are like two giant arms wide open to embrace the outside. With walls and windows that slide and concertina the interiors become part of the garden. What a joy to have that flowering magnolia as part of your living room.

The Homecoming House by Atelier Bond

I looooove this mid-century vibe 'The Homecoming' house designed by Adelaide, South Australia architecture firm Atelier Bond. The blend of indoor-outdoor has me wanting to move to the tropics even more than ever. The Homecoming marks a new chapter for this family who returned to Adelaide after a stint overseas. Their brief to Atelier Bond included a significant addition to the rear of their untouched villa as well as reconfiguring the floorplan of the original dwelling to better suit their needs. The result is a bright and open lounge and entertaining space that accommodates their relaxed lifestyle, 2.5 bathrooms and a generous outdoor wrap-around deck that encapsulates the best of Australian living and style. Photos: Russell Millard Photography (Thank you Leisha and Greg Bond for sharing your project with us!)
