Entries in warehouse (14)
Built from recycled materials and designed to accommodate the owners' love of warehouse living the Recycled House in Perth, Western Australia is by Etica Studio. While the design takes its reference from the surrounding art deco buildings the result is contemporary and stylish open plan living with sustainability in mind.
Every month an email arrives from Inside Out magazine's Managing Editor Lee Tran Lam and every month I get excited. The sneak peeks from inside the latest issue of the magazine are always amazing. Today she sent my dream home. I have wanted this particular space ever since I first spotted it in a previous incarnation as Lynda Gardener's home. Now it belongs to someone else (boo hoo not me) and I think I love it even more.
This is the home of artist Saskia Folk – whose "pick and mix style" is encapsulated by all the highly original items tucked into her place. There's a couch decked in "country check", a giant ice-cream light guarding the bottom of her stairs, a kitchen island bench made from old basketball flooring and kitchen cabinetry constructed from old meter boxes found in the Australian outback. Styling by Heather Nette King, photography by Derek Swalwell, from March issue of Inside Out.
Saskia you'll have to move out because I'm moving on in! Can't wait to see more in this month's issue out tomorrow. Don't fret if you aren't in Australia though. You can read along on Zinio, Google Play, the Apple Newsstand and Nook.
The architect's own warehouse space. Raw and restrained with a shock of acid green in the kitchen, open plan with changing levels to allow privacy, all washed with the natural light pouring through large windows. Modern urban living with a cool luxury. Young St, Fitzroy by Steve Domoney Architecture.
I could live here from sunrise to sunset and on to sunrise again. I could watch the changes on the garden terrace from spring through to winter. I could move from light to dark and out into the light. I could delight at a different detail very day, the ribbon of steel that rises as a staircase, the inverted stair railing as I climb, the shadow art, the old sign writing on adjacent walls. I could happily spend my days in this beautiful warehouse conversion. Sunrise by Jolson.
