Inside and out house

Posted on Wed, 6 May 2020 by midcenturyjo

The brief was to reinvent this narrow terrace house into a modern inside outside home. The open plan living area flows seamlessly into the stylish courtyard while the modern kitchen has a birdseye view of all the proceedings. Living large in a stylish small space.

Working on a Saturday

Posted on Sat, 2 May 2020 by midcenturyjo

Another week has passed. Another Saturday. Lockdown restricttions are slowly being lifted in my part of the world. We have been so lucky here. Others continue to be trapped in the nightmare that is the corona pandemic. It’s still a scary world out there and weekend work (or any work) is somewhere in a hazy future. And in that hazy future if we have to drag ourselves into work on a Saturday (or in this case yoga work out) it better be somewhere stylish like United Physiotherapy Group by Studio Ezra.

Working on a Saturday

As I wrote last week and sadly will be writing for many weeks to come a lot of us are compelled to stay home in these dangerous times. Others have no choice but to go out into the big, bad world to help others or keep the wheels turning. I can’t use my usual spiel about being dragged into work on a weekend. It doesn’t feel right. So many of us have lost our jobs. I’ll just share this stylish workplace instead. Office 1 by Lawless & Meyerson.

“When design minded individuals connect in the way we did with our Rotterdam Terrace client, magic happens.”

From the six-meter windows and pooling linen curtains to the oak fronted kitchen with its green and caramel coloured stone countertops. From the white painted, exposed rough brick to the expanse of smooth concrete floors.  Brass details, vintage leather, filmy track screening of windows and wardrobes. Pared back with a wabi sabi meets modern vibe. Rotterdam Terrace by Dutch firm Avenue Design Studio.
