Touching lightly on the meadow in which it sits, this amazing home by Finne Architects celebrates not only the view but the craftsmanship and artisan beauty of a carefully considered building. Nils Finne calls it crafted modernism, with cast bronze inserts at the front door, variegated laser-cut steel railing panels, a curvilinear cast-glass kitchen counter, waterjet-cut aluminum light fixtures and many custom furniture pieces. Interior, exterior, relation to site, all integrated, all pleasing to the mind and soul. The Mazama house located in the Methow Valley of Washington State, a secluded mountain valley on the eastern edge of the North Cascades, about 200 miles northeast of Seattle.
I'm stalking a Nobbs Radford designed terrace house renovation in Paddington, Sydney. Contemporary yet classic. A small footprint with big style. If you'd like to see the house with a minimal look check out the architect's site but I think I like it best with just a little more lived in character. Link here while it lasts.
I LOVE this! Book storage under stairs! The scheme makes the most of the split floor levels, as floors in the snug become walls, with flooring lining recessed walls, and steps become shelves extending around the walls, and becoming a bench seat by the existing fireplace on one side, and a desk on the other. The steps have been appropriated as a place for family members to sit, chat, read, write, draw, perform, and play, and the snug has become the centre of the home and of family life.
