Rock House

Posted on Thu, 19 Feb 2015 by KiM

The Rock House, perched on the edge of a cliff in the outskirts of Stockholm on Lake Mälaren. Designed by Arkitektstudio Widejdal Racki. What a beautiful location, and the mix of concrete, glass and wood creates a modern and organic retreat. I find it a bit cold but with the addition of more rugs and some plants, I think it would be the perfect getaway home.



Concrete and acid green

Posted on Fri, 28 Nov 2014 by midcenturyjo

The architect’s own warehouse space. Raw and restrained with a shock of acid green in the kitchen, open plan with changing levels to allow privacy, all washed with the natural light pouring through large windows. Modern urban living with a cool luxury. Young St, Fitzroy by Steve Domoney Architecture.

A modern two storey extension with polished concrete, plywood panels, open plan and a great indoor/outdoor connection. Yes please. I particularly like the ample custom storage. Stylish contemporary family living and sustainable design by Melbourne based Archiblox

Paddington Residence

Posted on Tue, 4 Nov 2014 by midcenturyjo

It’s modern. It’s concrete and glass, metal and timber. It’s a series of blocks and voids. It’s solid yet light and it sits proudly under an old fig tree next to neighbours steeped in history. It’s the Paddington Residence by Brisbane based Ellivo Architects.

The awards have been decided, gongs to be given and it’s official. The World Architectural Festival has chosen the Dune House by New Zealand’s Fearon Hay Architects as the winner in the Villa category. Nestled in the dunes of a popular beach the home provides shelter and privacy, a raw richness and coastal calm. Interiors are in collaboration with Penny Hay.
