I love a well-executed conversion. This one is a former railway cottage situated between a railway line and a national park in Velsen, The Netherlands. It was designed by ZW6 Interiors and is such a beautiful marriage of old heritage and modern aesthetics. Steel, concrete & glass blend magically with greenery, crumbled brick and wooden beams. What a dream house.
Check out this quirky home build by Australian architects Auhaus. Quirky on the outside anyway, with its layout of pod-like structures. The interior on the other hand is SWEET! The kitchen and bathroom are gorgeous and that tile - WOW! Nothing like a little graphic pattern to keep things interesting. (Jo featured Auhaus before - here and here).
Clinton and Diana Grobler of Cape Town, South Africa architecture firm Grobler Architects did quite a number on the cottage. Unfortunately there are no before photos on their website but WOW after some renovating and additions this house is gorgeous! All of the white makes it so calm and fresh. And I really love the kitchen - very cool idea to make everything on the back wall black and the island all white.
Have you ever wondered what the vacation home of an architect might look like? Neil Schwartz of Schwartz and Architecture designed this Hydeaway house in Sonona, California for himself, his spouse and their dogs, with the hopes of eventually retiring here. It's 2000 sq ft of midcentury modernism on one acre surrounded by vineyards. The main house sleeps six and a separate guest house sleeps two. Oh - and you can rent it. :-)
