Nobbs Radford Architects

New against old. Blocks of concrete and narrow recessed glass. Outward and in and the relationship between the two. Open plan extension to a Victorian era house where the new contrasts against the old. Internal walls of concrete are warmed by wood. It's a restrained palette of concrete, black aluminium, stainless steel and oak. Glebe House by Nobbs Radford Architects.

Fairbairn Rd House

Seen in the June/July issue of Belle magazine and admired, no more like greedily coveted, Fairbairn Rd House by Inglis Architects. Open plan, restrained palette, beautiful light, repetitive brick pattern facade and the warmth of wood. Casual, stylish, pared back, modern.

Double dose of Inside Out

Here's our second home from the July issue of Inside Out. I'll let managing editor Lee Tran Lam fill us in.

 

This second batch of images are from a "renovator's delight" (and as we all know, the reality of such a huge project is not always entirely "delightful")! A group of friends (who call themselves "A Gentleman's Agreement") decided to buy a dilapidated house (and its bad shape was not exaggerated – most of the floor had rotted through, there was water damage wherever you looked, and the stairs had vanished – as had many of the walls. There wasn't even a proper kitchen or bathroom). "We couldn't have lived there even if we wanted to," says builder Daniel Hedge. 

With some styling help from the Cool Edies duo, the group renovated the home and try to sell it. It's quite a task! Unsurprisingly, they have some insightful stories to tell.  Styling by Jane Frosh. Photography by Phu Tang.

Don't forget Aussie readers can pick up their copy of the latest issue of Inside Out on Thursday and overseas readers can find it on ZinioGoogle Play and the Apple Newsstand.

Stalking 1

Sunshine streams in through the stairwell of this teeny, tiny Paddington, Sydney home. Stylish living in a sp[ace that is barely 3.5m wide. It's the tiny gems I like the most when I'm real estate stalking. Link here while it lasts.

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.
