Mixing the old with the new

Nook Architects have gone and done it again. They have renovated what was essentially a hole, and transformed it into a seriously cool apartment.

Matryoshka

This 40 apartment in Turin, Italy was once an industrial space now converted into a hip, modern dwelling by the folks at UdA. I'm always a fan of their projects as they are so creative, aren't afraid to add bits of colour and pattern, and they blend different materilas in very unusual ways. I also love their use of varying angles. Turns a boring rectangle into something far more interesting. (Previous posts of their work here, here and here).

Contemporary architecture, historic building, dynamic laneway. A perfect marriage. The icing on the cake? It's listed on airbnb.

Blackpool House

Rising like a dark tower through the dense vegetation is a modest one bedroom house. Changes of level and expanses of glass provide views that slice through the tree canopy while the house seems to tumble down the steep slope. Black cladding helps the structure disappear into the forrest. A wonderful getaway, an adult's cubby house. The Blackpool House at Waiheke, New Zealand by Glamuzina Paterson Architects.

A small area, a big idea. Multi use space in a bijou apartment by Sydney based architect Nicholas Gurney. Stylish, clever and just a little bit fun. Now you see it. Now you don't.
