Bunker In The Treetops

Posted on Mon, 6 Nov 2023 by midcenturyjo

Inspired by the Modernist ideals of truth in material and connection to nature this design is overlaid with a casual eclecticism. Mid-century, contemporary and custom pieces sit within a simple concrete formwork box with soaring ceilings and large windows framing views of the local landscape. Bespoke handcrafted elements soften the concrete structure, creating comfortable conversational spaces and accentuating materiality and texture. The design prioritizes everyday use across five levels, fulfilling the clients’ desire for a real sense of fun and openness. Bunker in the Treetops by Esoteriko.

Highlands House

Posted on Fri, 27 Oct 2023 by midcenturyjo

This remarkable hilltop dwelling seamlessly blends industrial charm with contemporary design. Three interconnecting pavilions sit atop a hillside in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales. Think contemporary design meets industrial-style barns, open-plan spaces and precast concrete panels. Connecting the pavillions is an art gallery walk defining areas and connecting with the vast landscape. In such a rural area sustainability takes centre stage, featuring solar power, rainwater harvesting and fire safety measures. This off-grid residence embodies meticulous planning, offering a unique blend of form, function, and environmental consciousness. Highlands House by Luke Maloney Architecture.

Tree Island

Posted on Fri, 27 Oct 2023 by midcenturyjo

Tree Island defies limitations, transforming its compact-sized house into a unique family home. Measuring just four and a half meters wide, the home cleverly rises against a neighbouring warehouse conversion, maximizing vertical space. A central, light-filled void connects living areas and hosts a thriving fig tree. A courtyard and rear garden offer tranquillity and practicality, while a hidden roof terrace provides a private retreat. This home ingeniously incorporates natural light, greenery, and expansive living spaces, turning constraints into design advantages. By Sydney-based Carter Williamson.

It’s like I say week in week out. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it’s somewhere stylish. PG Art Gallery Istanbul by SANAYI313.

Calle Mayor

A mix of eras are found throughout this apartment in the Spanish resort town of San Sebastián. Designer Iñigo Iriarte maintained as many original features as possible in the space, and kept the decor really eclectic with a plethora of random vintage pieces. Textures and patterns really warm up this apartment and create a very welcoming vibe. Photos: Erlantz Biderbost
