Up on the roof

Posted on Tue, 28 Nov 2023 by midcenturyjo

“This ample apartment is a modern, top floor addition to an 18th century palace formerly owned by a Brazilian noble family. It is characterized by a tower that overlooks the city of Lisbon and the Tejo River, providing 360 degree views. During the renovation, we were involved in the supervision of the hard finishes. We designed the millwork and casework, combining locally sourced and produced oak, walnut and stone. The Pico table by Mircea Anghel was exclusively designed for this project, and the tower, now transformed into a lounge area, features ceiling murals designed by Elvira Solana. The tower leads to an integrated rooftop terrace with a built-in Argentinian BBQ and cactus installation.”

I never knew I needed a muralled sunroom or a cactus installation but I do now. Jasmim Tower in Lisbon, Portugal by Quiet Studios.

Elm Residence

Posted on Tue, 28 Nov 2023 by midcenturyjo

“Elm Residence is an Edwardian style five bedroom residence with a contemporary extension that’s designed surrounds an established Golden Elm tree. The property provides an experiential journey through the flow of passage from one end to the other, bringing old and new sensitively together. The ‘old and new’ are connected by a timber lined link, with natural stone portals announcing the transition through from the original house. Elm Residence combines natural materiality and luxurious details, layered with art and objects that create a rich yet comfortable atmosphere.”

An 1845 Connecticut country house

Posted on Mon, 27 Nov 2023 by KiM

Catherine Olasky and Maximilian Sinsteden of Olasky & Sinsteden gave this Essex, Connecticut country house a dose of understated elegance and a dash of European nostalgia. The restored home now exudes charm, timelessness and serenity.

For the top floor of a classical and stately Edwardian in the iconic neighborhood of Pacific Heights- perched 400 ft above sea level, we transformed one wing into a private Primary Suite complete with a bedroom lined with linen walls, travertine-clad bathroom, and walk-in closet. The other wing became a cozy Media Room where the family of 4 can hang out regularly and enjoy views of the iconic Golden Gate Bridge.
Architectural design studio HOMEWORK created drama with colour, statement furnishings and finishes in these spaces that really make me want to chill out, lounge in bed and brush my teeth in style! Photos: Nicole Franzen; Styling: Rosy Fridman.

I’m dead. This property for sale in Pazos de Borben, Pontevedra is soooo beautiful! It consists of 2 buildings, an ‘Indian house’ of 410 m² and another typical Galician L-shaped house of 100 m² and the listing says both require renovating. I don’t know how much renovating but I sure would not do much with the rooms featured in these photos! The facade is blowing my mind – incredible! For sale for €800,000 via Lucas Fox.
