Working on a Saturday

When all these uncertain times are over I’ll never complain about being dragged into work on a weekend again although no one would have to drag me here. More like drag me out. London Offices by Daytrip.

 

Modern Australian country

The perfect weekend getaway, linen, cane and soft hues in this renovated Queenslander style house in the Northern NSW hinterland. The modern Australian country vibe is just what I’m craving in these uncertain times. Bangalow house by Lennon Head based Louise Walsh Interior Design.

Floodlight House

Posted on Thu, 25 Jun 2020 by midcenturyjo

“The brief for an extension to a 1920’s house backing on to the Hobart rivulet and Fitzroy gardens called for increased visual and physical access to its garden setting. This was in stark contrast to the flood overlay planning requirements for the floor level to be raised above the site it sought to connect with. The resulting addition sets up a series of decks and landings at height intervals not requiring balustrades and gradually spills into the immediate garden drawing in the neighbouring park through large glazing and openings.”

A connection between in and out, light and shadow play, expansive view and glimpses through fins, new and old. Floodlight House by Crump Architects.

Modern family living and a historic home. Can you have both? Will it look like an unholy mish mash? The Old Schoolhouse on the outskirts of Milton on the NSW South Coast by Christina Prescott Design (in collaboration with VIEW//THRU building design and Seed Garden Design) saw the addition of a new wing containing a large open plan living, kitchen and dining room. A sympathetic and stunning heart of the home.

The sea captain’s house

The renovation of a 19th Century Bellport Long Island sea captain’s house by C.S. Valentin saw the marriage of the house’s beautifully uncomplicated bones and a mid century aesthetic. It’s been called “Mid Century Shaker” even “Flintstone Chic”. I call it simply sublime.
