Entries in wood (87)
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.
Sitting snugly on the Gager marina on Rügen Island, Germany is a simple, stylish house that references its site, the history and construction of the boat houses that hug the shore. Think casual, natural materials, panoramas and light flooding in. Now think holiday rental. You'd find me sitting by the window mesmerised by the view. Strandwood House - modern, maritime style.
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.
