More hot Singapore design. We’ve focused on apartments before but there are a lucky few who possess that most valuable of quantities on this populous island state…. land no matter how small. These stunning heritage architecture homes are in Singapore’s conservation zones. Many are shop houses but behind their immaculately preserved historical facades hide stunning modern homes where every square inch is devoted to living life well. All were designed by one of South-East Asia’s leading architectural firms ONG&ONG. Beautiful, considerate of heritage and spatially clever!



Susan Gilmore

I would love to go on and on about the photography of the talented Minneapolis-based Susan Gilmore but it’s 8 pm here in Ottawa and 40 degrees celsius and I think my brain is melting and about to come pouring out of my ears, so all I’ll say is this woman has shot some of the most gorgeous drool-on-my-laptop kitchens I’ve seen in a VERY long time.

Stalking on the skinny

Posted on Wed, 1 Sep 2010 by midcenturyjo

When your house is tall and very narrow you need to think a little differently. Skinny has never looked so sexy (and I definitely don’t mean whippet thin super models). I’ve been stalking in probably my favourite street in Australia, Brunswick St, Fitzroy and look what I found! Right in the heart of the action and that view! What would make it more perfect would be setting up a business downstairs and living above the shop. I’ve always had that dream.
