A lakeside family retreat

Posted on Fri, 11 Feb 2022 by KiM

How much fun would it be to have a retreat like this to escape to in the summer months? Or winter for that matter. I love the mix of contemporary and rustic cabin of the interior and each space is whimsical and lounge-y. Located on Lake Sunapee in New Hampshire and designed by Kate Maloney.

Timber and stone at the beach

Posted on Thu, 10 Feb 2022 by midcenturyjo

A striking combination of stone and timber, brick and polished concrete in a house with an easy flow between inside and out. It’s all about contemporary family living at the beach with plenty of space for entertaining friends. It’s about contrasts but also unity, void and solid, black and white.

Organic curves at Bondi Beach

Posted on Thu, 10 Feb 2022 by midcenturyjo

“Divided through the centre, the house draws light from above. A central skylight illuminates the bridging circulation spaces while a double height void running East to West provides fresh air and ventilation.

On a street primarily populated with semi-detached dwellings, this single dwelling house has been carefully designed to reflect its symmetrical neighbours. Elements of symmetry can be seen at first floor level. While the ground floor remains asymmetrical in use with the garage located to the East of the site, the building form has been intentionally divided creating a rhythm of solid and void similar to the front rooms and entry portico’s of a semi-detached development. Thoughtful consideration of materiality, colour and detail reflective of the surrounding streetscape was encompassed and deliberately reduced to a minimal palate creating a contemporary echo of its surroundings.”

Fluid, organic lines, natural material palette, emphasis on texture and playful exploration of solid and voids. Contemporary seaside living, Bondi Brise at Bondi Beach by Stafford.

Old world Flemish charm in Texas

Posted on Wed, 9 Feb 2022 by KiM

WHOA what a house! This is absolutely beautiful inside and out. Designed by cityhomeCOLLECTIVE. The task at hand was least to say AMBITIOUS and it included a total transformation of a generic, builder-grade development property to an exquisite all-custom home that radiates with old world Flemish charm. Clustered around an emerald green pool, paved with amalgam of reclaimed stones brought from Europe and encircled within lush gardens (that feel as if they were there for decades), this home is an oasis of privacy that celebrates the marvelous connection between the indoors and the nature that surrounds it. Even though the design of the home took as much time as the design of the outdoor spaces and surrounding landscape, it was impossible to touch one without the other. In order to seamlessly blend indoors and outdoors, drastic changes were made to the existing layouts and we relied on the use of custom Riviera Bronze metal doors & windows to add expansiveness and light to the space. Bespoke, custom designed furniture and lighting fixtures, coupled with carefully curated materials that celebrate materiality as much as the hand of the artist have been used throughout the interiors in order to create a layered, texture abundant, inviting ambiance.
