Reinforce

Posted on Tue, 16 Jun 2015 by midcenturyjo

A bookshelf, a wardrobe, a table, a wine rack, and a sculpture. One piece of furniture frames and connects the space, reinforcing the meaning, the personality, the purpose. Monoform Living at the Strata by Singapore design firm Produce.

Concrete sophistication

Posted on Thu, 28 May 2015 by midcenturyjo

Raw concrete and honed basalt. A monochrome palette warmed with burnt orange highlights. A nod to Palladian villas perched by the sea. Loggia lounging and beachside modern. A marriage between swimwear and sophistication. Sorrento House on the Mornington Peninsula by Melbourne-based Rob Mills Architects.

 

 

Apartment on Leningradsky Prospekt

Posted on Tue, 26 May 2015 by KiM

I wanted to share this apartment in Russia with you, because it is a wonderful example of modern, minimalist architecture done right in a small space. While fairly simple in its design, the black steel wall/windows is a DREAM, with white painted brick, concrete ceiling, sleek cabinetry and flooring, and the deep window sills all work so well together. I LOVE it….except maybe the hammock. I would prefer a sofa. 🙂 Great job Crosby Studios!

Bold Brazil

Posted on Tue, 19 May 2015 by midcenturyjo

A Brazil! Bold and beautiful. Love this São Paulo apartment by Diego Revollo Arquitetura. A monochromatic palette revved up with rich hues and slick surfaces. Oh so cool and definitely hot. It may be purple but it’s no shrinking violet.

 

Stones

Posted on Mon, 18 May 2015 by midcenturyjo

So much more than a pile of stones. The transformation of a ramshackle series of buildings into a minimalist, contemporary home is a thing of beauty while showing respect for place, materials and history. Rustic yet ultra modern the stone house in Scaiano, Switzerland by Wespi de Meuron Romeo Architects.
