Posted on Wed, 16 Feb 2022 by midcenturyjo

“This summer home delivered a space for rest and respite, memories under the summer sun, and many a sunrise out in the morning surf.”

Becca Interiors has skilfully updated, refreshed and rationalised this house in the heart of Southampton village creating a city dweller’s surf retreat. A mix of new and vintage, bespoke and found, casual and stylish.

A lakeside family retreat

How much fun would it be to have a retreat like this to escape to in the summer months? Or winter for that matter. I love the mix of contemporary and rustic cabin of the interior and each space is whimsical and lounge-y. Located on Lake Sunapee in New Hampshire and designed by Kate Maloney.

Timber and stone at the beach

Posted on Thu, 10 Feb 2022 by midcenturyjo

A striking combination of stone and timber, brick and polished concrete in a house with an easy flow between inside and out. It’s all about contemporary family living at the beach with plenty of space for entertaining friends. It’s about contrasts but also unity, void and solid, black and white.

Organic curves at Bondi Beach

Posted on Thu, 10 Feb 2022 by midcenturyjo

“Divided through the centre, the house draws light from above. A central skylight illuminates the bridging circulation spaces while a double height void running East to West provides fresh air and ventilation.

On a street primarily populated with semi-detached dwellings, this single dwelling house has been carefully designed to reflect its symmetrical neighbours. Elements of symmetry can be seen at first floor level. While the ground floor remains asymmetrical in use with the garage located to the East of the site, the building form has been intentionally divided creating a rhythm of solid and void similar to the front rooms and entry portico’s of a semi-detached development. Thoughtful consideration of materiality, colour and detail reflective of the surrounding streetscape was encompassed and deliberately reduced to a minimal palate creating a contemporary echo of its surroundings.”

Fluid, organic lines, natural material palette, emphasis on texture and playful exploration of solid and voids. Contemporary seaside living, Bondi Brise at Bondi Beach by Stafford.
