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.

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.

Stone and concrete are warmed with wood accents. Walls slide back blurring boundaries. Multiple living areas welcome social interactions whether cosy conversations or large parties. The hub is the kitchen with family life spreading out to greet the outdoor spaces. Yes we all know we want to call up our friends, mix the drinks and have plenty of towels on hand for when we climb out of the pool. A sense of casual sophistication. Easy going but stylish. A trophy house? Yes but you deserve it. The latest home by SAOTA – Stefan Antoni Olmesdahl Truen Architects and Three14 Architects in Higgovale, Cape Town.

East Hampton dreaming

Dreaming of the quintessential Hampton's beach house? Dreaming of white and breezy, casual elegance and easy style? Susana Simonpietri of Chango & Co has conjured up a magical home in East Hampton. A young, fresh redesign of an historic home saw walls removed and open plan rooms created. Dark floors anchor the design where yellow pops against white walls and furnishings. Clean, crisp with silver highlights, old and new, rustic with industrial. Holiday or everyday this is a wonderful take on the modern Hamptons style.
