It’s like I say week in week out. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend then it better be somewhere stylish. Ya Vsesvit, an architectural studio, showroom and 80 seat lecture room for events in Kiev by Yakusha Design Studio.

Astor Apartment

Posted on Thu, 23 Jan 2020 by midcenturyjo

The brief was to update this apartment in Sydney’s heritage listed interwar Free Classical style Astor building. What resulted was sophisticated modern living while respecting and restoring the heritage bones. The stunning inner city Sydney views are an added bonus. My favourite part? The new gently curving entry, a feature that seems as if it was always part of the fabric of the building. By Madeleine Blanchfield Architects

Black house on the ridge

Posted on Thu, 23 Jan 2020 by midcenturyjo

“Inspiration for the design of this three-bedroom, three-bathroom house came from its rural environment and the result is a modern interpretation of traditional barn architecture. It strikes a balance between natural textures and materials, earthy dark-stained furniture and beautiful charcoal and black-stained panelling.”

“A modern bohemian beach retreat for a vibrant family. Drawing on the home’s strong indoor/outdoor connection, JPL introduced an earth-tone palette layered with natural fibers, chunky textures and vintage furniture pieces to create a relaxing escape from the city bustle.”
