Working on a Saturday

It”s like I say week in week out. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it’s somewhere stylish. Beverley Hills Spa by Jake Arnold.

Heidi Caillier never disappoints and is eager to embrace the history of a home and leave things like beautiful dark millwork untouched. And this is why I am her biggest fan. Along with her signature addition of slightly muted but always punchy colours and patterns strewn throughout this home gives off the coziest, effortlessly stylish, a wee bit European and timeless vibes.

Nine-Square Bondi

Posted on Thu, 15 Jun 2023 by midcenturyjo

“Tasked with creating an urban oasis on a small block in a densely populated area, connecting to the street and community while maintaining privacy for the residents was key. Nine-Square Bondi is a reflection of the client’s global and creative mindset, incorporating influences of time spent living in Hong Kong, their eclectic collection of art and love of Brazilian Brutalist houses. The core concept was to draw on their individuality but also to embrace and reflect the unique character of the Bondi Beach locality: casual, communal, colourful, imperfect and unadorned.”

A courtyard house in Williamsburg

Posted on Mon, 12 Jun 2023 by KiM

Nestled on a quiet street is an unassuming slate blue garage facade, behind which exists a rare courtyard house with industrial roots. The two-story house was designed to serve the dual purpose of the client’s home and working space. Creating a dialogue that connects the private and public zones was the main consideration in approaching the design for this two bedroom and two and a half bathroom residence. A focus was to also enhance the ease of flow between the multiple living spaces presented by the circular architecture of the courtyard. The indoor and outdoor; private and communal blend seamlessly with generous access to light and air. Each area within the home, with its own design identity, is interconnected. Here lies the beautiful balance of unity in a courtyard house.
