Nick Noyes

West Coast USA, San Francisco, a Bay Region vibe. Two homes from SF based Nick Noyes Architecture. Two homes that sit lightly on the land, a series of wings and interconnections. Breezeways and outdoor spaces, simple, honest architecture with materials and construction on display. The first, on a vineyard, proud in its simple wall cladding of plywood. The second a series of classic metal roofed "boxes" resplendent in white.

Embraced by glass

Ohlhausen DuBois Architects have taken a 1950's ranch house and integrated a new glass pavilion and landscaping to create a home that delights and welcomes. Indoor living spaces now transition easily to the outdoors through a series of terraces, gardens and pool. The house is about mass and volume, light and transparency, solidity and retreat while reaching out to its location. Simple. Elegant. Satisfying and inspiring. Milillo Residence, Sands Point, NY.

Stalking old and new

What happens when old meets new? I'm still real estate stalking. South Yarra in Melbourne to be exact. An iron lace confection in stately grounds. High Victorian decoration meets eames chairs. At the rear a modern extension of metal and glass, timber and marble. Mid century classics and sleek lines. Does it do it for you? Do you have several million? For sale of course. Link here while it lasts.

Head Road 1816

Bold contemporary lines. Floor planes intersected and connected by vertical timber elements. Mass and void, solid and transparent, open and shut and in and out. Luxury open-plan family living perched above Cape Town, South Africa with views to infinity and the infinity edged pool to relax in and enjoy it all. Who else but SAOTA - Stefan Antoni Olmesdahl Truen Architects.

Robins Way

I just had to share another amazing renovation by Bates Masi Architects. This '60s house in Amagansett, NY is the weekend retreat of an interior designer and a DJ. Patina and history retained, a couple's style allowed to shine through. Take a look up at the ceilings. Between the existing ceiling joists. Woven natural rope. Acoustic baffling, important to the DJ owner but also a wonderfulyl textural and a connection to vertical design elements and fittings. Such a cool weekender. I'd never want to leave to return to the city. Interiors by Rawlins Calderone Design.
