Haptic Architects

London and Oslo based Haptic Architects have reached into the unused loft above this top floor Olso apartment to create a light filled home. Vertical lines heighten the space while positive and negative space define the areas in otherwise open plan living. File away the staircase in your inspiration folders. Yes I know not to code in many countries but a work of art, a domestic sculpture. Inspiration doesn't always have to be practical. A dream, a fleeting thought. A joy. Like the fireplace in the kitchen. The true hearth in the home.

The staircase

Returning from Brazil in the late 19th century Portuguese migrants brought not only new wealth but architectural influences from their adopted country. Who would have known that a chi chi alpine chalet design would have been popular in Brazil at the time? Fast forward to the 21st century and the"Chalé das Três Esquinas" (Three Cusps Chalet) in Braga, Portugal was in desperate need of repair. Tiago do Vale Arquitectos have breathed new life into the crumbling building with a lightness, a transparency that is defined by the sinuous original staircase that rises through the newly opened spaces. A modern work and live space in a reborn historic building.

Phooey

The Cubo House, additions to a heritage listed double storey building by Melbourne architecture firm Phooey. Why Cubo? "The project applies the surrealist technique of “Cubomania” to catalogue, re-use & re-invent the demolished building materials." The stand out feature of the new space? The staircase which spirals up and down through three levels topped by a creative re-use chandelier.

Stalking leftovers

It's that time of the week. The ones that made the cut but then didn't because I hummed and hawed and changed my mind. My stalking leftovers. Why? I'm very fussy. Call me particular, finicky, choosy and hard to please. Not quite right, bad photos, I need more photos please, house is amazing furniture is deplorable or no furniture at all! Can't quite put my finger on it listings with something that has me nodding "yes". This week I seem to be fixated on staircases. Click on the images to head to the listings.
