Stalking modern in Melbourne

Posted on Thu, 7 Mar 2013 by midcenturyjo

Pardon me. I’m stalking again. I thought something a little more contemporary this time. A home in the Melbourne suburb of Northcote. With a palette of natural colours and finishes it borrows views and a sense of space from the adjoining parkland. Favourite parts? Both sitting rooms, the transition from inside to out and those “stolen” views. Designed by award-winning architect Robert Simeoni you can find the link here while it lasts.

Work Architecture Company

It’s been forever since I blogged the work of New York architecture firm Work Architecture Company. I was completely smitten then and I still am. Dan Wood and Amale Andraos have seriously creative juices flowing through their veins, and the results are works of art. It doesn’t even matter what furniture you fill these spaces with – the genius architecture overshadows everything.

6 months, 23 000+ photos, an unusual hotel and one of the world’s clearest skies. A magical timelapse. Let’s just say that the view at the Hotel Elqui Domos in Pisco Elqui, Chile goes on forever. It’s star gazing from the comfort of your hotel bed. A very special place captured in a very special way by photographer James Florio. You can see more at Hotel Elqui Domos and on James’ website.

Scott Frances encore

Telling a story is important to photographer Scott Frances. Capturing the essence, the atmosphere of a space is just as paramount as detailing the designer’s work. Architecture with mood, images with emotion. You will find my original post on Scott Frances‘ work here but I’m glad I revisited his portfolio. Diving into an architect’s work through the lens of a photographer with a holistic approach.
