F house - modern minimalism 

Sometimes I come across homes while doing research for the blog that are just TOO MUCH. Too ornate, too large, trying too hard etc. Located in Savyon, Israel, the F House by Pitsou Kedem Architect seems to be over the top in terms of size (ceilings that seem to be up in the heavens - and it's 700 ) and minimalism. Perhaps this is exactly what the client asked for. What I love about this is that the sculptural qualities of the outdoors makes up for everything the inside isn't. And in the evening this home is magical with lighting to emphasize the beauty of the plants, trees and wood walls.

Minimalism by Studio Oink 

I thought I would share some modern minimalism to ease you into the work week (for those who aren't on summer vacation - those are the people I am hating right now). Leipzig, Germany based creatives Studio Oink is a favourite of mine for calm, beautifully styled spaces with just about the bare minimum. So peaceful. (Previous feature here)

The Riverhouse

Trees, river, windows, views, spaciousness....what more could you want? This 6,500 sq ft home in Coxsackie, NY on the Hudson River is unbelieveable, inside and out. I can't imagine having all those windows to be able to enjoy the outdoors 365 days a year. It could even convince me to enjoy winter. ;) Architect: BWArchitects (previous features here and here)+ interior: Poonam Khanna + most photos: William Waldron for Architectural Digest.

Minimalism in Melbourne

An imposing, modern extension to an old brick house in Fitzroy, Melbourne appears as if a metal box perches precariously on the roof. A series of levels cascading together with short flights of stairs and a double height void allow for "open plan" living which is light filled yet discreet. Playing with the juxtaposition of contrasts, positive and negative, open and closed, old and new has created a striking, minimalist home by Julie Firkin Architects.
