“A nod to the architectural history of this 1925 home came to mind when designing spaces in this home. Preserving original elements and details of the home was a lovely juxtaposition with it’s newly designed kitchen and layers of upholstery. We reconfigured the layout to suit the family’s lifestyle, transforming imposing spaces into the large open plan living and dining room that works comfortably for daily use and entertaining.”

LAHAUS has taken a terrace house in the Perth suburb of Cottesloe and created a coastal home for family and friends that feels like being on holiday all the time. Stylish indoor and outdoor entertaining areas, relaxing yet chic spaces and lush landscaping. You’ll find me by the pool, cocktail in hand.

I bow down to Heidi Caillier once again. The queen of moody, vintage vibin’, colourful but in the dreamist way spaces that only she can nail this well each and every time. I am constantly on the fence about what my favourite style is but maybe I should just start saying “the Heidi way”. This San Francisco pied-à-terre is perfection. Photos: Haris Kenjar
“A property becomes a destination when it speaks to the culture of a particular moment; it comes to life when filled with an audience that gets it.”
Oh I get it. I get it. Chic beach living in Montauk is a dream that can come true. You can actually rent this getaway. I’ll just daydream it’s mine all mine. Edison Bungalow by Studio Robert McKinley.
“This 820 sq ft apartment takes up the entire Parlor level floor in a 1850s townhouse in West Chelsea. The 12’ ceilings in the public areas – the living room and kitchen – are remarkably higher than those in the bedroom and the bathrooms. To create a better sense of flow in the space, and to mitigate the height difference, we introduced two diagonal ceilings.
An arched library built in the living room provides the space a sense of hierarchy, grandeur, and scale, together with a newly designed marble fireplace and crown moldings.”
This awkward space bereft of the architectural details such a historic townhouse should possess did have redeeming features such as soaring ceilings at one end and south facing windows. It was enough for architectural duo Noam Dvir and Daniel Rauchwerger of BoND to see the potential and run with it. The result? A light-filled small space design with clever spatial planning.
