A Brooklyn townhouse renovation

You all know by now that I LOOOOOVE a good Brooklyn townhouse renovation. This one was submitted by the lovely folks of Lang Architecture (featured once before here). This 4 story Italianate row house was was converted from a three family to a single-family house with original interior details carefully restored. The garden floor features an office and den, the parlor floor has a living room with custom window seat at the front and a kitchen and new steel balcony at the rear. The fine wood period stair has been restored and leads to the bedroom floors. The master bedroom overlooks the street, with a generous dressing room and bathroom suite at the rear. The bathroom features custom steel and wood partitions, providing a warm complement to marble slab and tile.

Palma Plaza

Hugh Randolph Architects updated this 1935 Greek Revival cottage in Austin, Texas and the result is functional and modern yet honouring its past and maintaining the traditional look of the exterior. This is my favourite type of renovation - traditional facade with an unexpected surprise on the inside (and some great use of under-the-stairs space!). The exterior of this home is absolutely gorgeous. I think this needs to go in my inspiration file.

InForm Design +2

One more from InForm Design, a townhouse, one of three in a row. Contemporary Australian design done well. I think my favourite bit is the hallway/staircase. I love the sense of transition, the attention given to the process of travel between public and private, the light that floods into what could have been a long, dark corridor.

Love!

It's not often that a passage way gets my design senses tingling but I'm loving everything about this one. Often overlooked as purely utilitarian, this glorious light filled space celebrates the journey rather than scurrying towards the destination. See more of the Concrete House 1 by Auhaus Architecture on their website. I'll wait for you here.

Tumbling blocks

A work in progress, this Brooklyn apartment by SABO project plays with blocks both figuratively and literally. Escheresque style expressed through the tile pattern of diamonds and hexagons in the bathroom while stairs and storage in the open plan living and kitchen areas continue the homage to the tumbling block.
