An 1,800-square-foot modern country home situated in the heart of the Catskills. This project marks the initial collaboration between INC and NevelHaus on the first of a series of sustainable and turnkey modern designed homes. INC partnered with Hudson-based furniture company Gestalt to curate the home’s interiors, resulting in a unique interiors scheme that highlights and compliments the lush wooded surroundings. INC’s aesthetic goal became to combine the rustic and the refined while relating to the surrounding landscape. The steep pitch of the 45-degree roof angle gives the home a modern character and provides a gracious vaulted living loft. The home’s abstract form is balanced by warm cypress wood siding. The open living loft, inclusive of the kitchen, dining room, and living room, is designed to function as the central gathering space. The 30-foot ceilings in the living loft. plentiful, double-height windows are orchestrated to bring in an abundance of natural light and provide views and connection to the surrounding landscape. The architectural strategy gives the home an open, airy feel while creating moments of intimacy when needed. The first floor features a primary bedroom with a graciously sized bathroom, a private terrace, and an outdoor shower. The second floor offers two bedrooms, an office mezzanine, and a reading nook that overlooks the grand loft room.
The perfect city escape. Clean and minimal with no distractions. By INC Architecture & Design.

Woolland House in Dorset

Posted on Mon, 25 Jul 2022 by KiM

This beautiful seven-bedroom house, with artists’ studios, coach house and cottage, is set within approximately 17 acres of exquisite private gardens, meadows and lakes within the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Once the home of the sculptor Dame Elisabeth Frink RA, it has recently been the subject of a restoration completed by acclaimed builders R. Moulding & Co. Woolland House can be approached via separate driveways and is entered through a beautiful cobbled courtyard, open at one side and with a fountain at its centre. A contemporary, glazed atrium, designed by architect Simon Morray-Jones, provides a walkway to the front entrance. The house beautifully combines classical and late-medieval elements with a traditional Dorset vernacular of stone, red brick and flint. At its centre is a double-height hall with vaulted cathedral ceilings and hardwood parquet flooring. There are two bedrooms on the ground floor, along with two bathrooms, and four further bedrooms on the first floor, with three bathrooms between them. The Coach House is positioned on the eastern side of the house and provides self-contained one-bedroom accommodation over two levels. Elisabeth Frink’s main studio is set apart from the house and offers an enormous amount of versatile space over two levels.
And on, and on, and on of just utter fabulousness. Perfect for horse lovers, anyone who loves the outdoors and gardening, and that artist studio….WHOA. For sale via The Modern House.

What an absolutely incredible property for sale in Sintra, Portugal. The beautiful landscaping and views, the interior is in great shape and that blue and white tile everywhere is the icing on the cake. I am completely smitten with this home. Listing here.

The drama of stone

I had to share another spectacular kitchen by Swedish interior architecture firm Kitchens by Paul. The hero here is the incredible Breccia Vagli marble with its dynamic veins and shifting colours. Clean lines and the contrast of the smoked oak combine to create a feeling of contemporary luxury.
