Williamson Chong is the Toronto architecture and design office of Shane Williamson, Betsy Williamson, and Donald Chong. This trio brings on creativity, urbanism and sustainability. Below are a few of their projects, my favourite being the Galley House, built on a long, narrow 'leftover lot of 12' wide - which is the exact width of my house. But mine looks nothing like this one. :( It's amazing what these folks did with such an awkward space.
I love the New Zealand bach. The beach side cottage, the seaside shack, often painted black, pared back, perhaps even a little rough. Somewhere to escape, to interact with nature, to relax, to retreat. The Storm Cottage by architectural firm Fearon Hay with interiors by Penny Hay displays a robust exterior to the world but once inside it is warm, cocooning with a simple luxury. A stylish shelter in the wilds.
If you've got to live in a small space, why not make it a loft? Nothing like soaring cielings to make you forget how little square footage you actually have. That's why I love this little downtown Salt Lake CIty, Utah loft for sale by cityhomeCollective. It's a 452 sq ft space with 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom over 2 floors with a little patio to boot. LOVE the brick exterior, original hardwood and exposed ductwork. A funky bachelor pad(or bachlorette if you throw in some feminine touches).
We've featured Polish interior designer Lucyna Kołodziejska's work a few times in the past (here, here and here), and she emailed recently with yet another fabulous small apartment she designed. This apartment is in Sopot, it is designed for rent, for weekends, for tourist that want to feel some atmosphere of old XIX town Sopot . It is in new building but me and my principal wants to get a climate of old town apartment. It have one bedroom and small bathroom, living room with open kitchen. We have there big photograph of Sopot pier by some Portugal (!) photographer who sold us this photo. In bathroom old morrocan tiles on the floor and photo of Baltic sea made by myself. The flat is 200 metres near the sea side.
