A colourful beach home

Posted on Tue, 17 Jul 2018 by midcenturyjo

A creative use of colour sets this house at Rehoboth Beach apart from others. Classic with a little touch of boho, eclectic and casually elegant, definitely traditional with a twist. By Alexandria, Virginia based Crosby Designs.

 

Modern in an old mouldings shop

Posted on Tue, 17 Jul 2018 by midcenturyjo

An old plaster moulding shop on the ground floor of an early 20th century building in Barcelona was dark and derelict until architectural firm Valentí Albareda created a magical light filled home with central courtyard and a distinct modern flavour inside its rustic exposed brick walls. Love the almost sculptural feel to elements such as the staircase and shelving.

 

Working on a Saturday

It’s like I say time after time. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it certainly helps if it’s somewhere stylish and you can’t get more fabulous than this Madrid communications agency office by Casa Josephine. Oh those tiles!

Another fine example from the portfolio of Melbourne-based Zen Architects. The modern extension to the rear of this terrace house uses a striking materials palette of slate, timber and concrete block.A thoroughly modern look, striking, light filled with just a touch of retro.

Light Saw House

Posted on Fri, 13 Jul 2018 by midcenturyjo

Respect, knowledge and a consideration for people and the natural environment define Zen Architects‘ work and design philosophy. This Edwardian weatherboard house has renovated and an extension to the rear brings in light and views to the garden. The reuse of external bricks especially on the floor and fireplace hearth adds interesting texture and warmth.
