“Pacific House is an alteration and addition to an existing 1990’s concrete framed cliffside dwelling. It is exposed to the Easterly facing ocean and closely adjacent similar cliffside dwelling structures. We have replanned the dwelling, adding external amenity including landscape works and a swimming pool. We have also modified portions of the exterior building envelope including doors and windows, cladding, entries, external decks, facades and pergolas.”
A contemporary home with luxe finishes, clean-lined, beautiful and functional in a stunning but sometimes hostile environment. Pacific House by Alexander and Co.
The designers knew they had a gem in the rough. The apartment in a functionalist building was derelict but as they stripped it back they discovered a ribbed ceiling and massive concrete columns. Reconfiguring the layout the main public area is an open-plan living, dining and kitchen area that embraces its industrial elements while softening them ever so slightly for family living.

A slice of blue rises through this Slovakian home’s open-plan living, dining and kitchen. Grounded by a concrete plinth containing a fireplace and storage the steel stairs lead to a sleeping loft. Steel posts and beams continue the colour accent while blue doors lead the eye out to the view. Contemporary living with references to a more rustic past with exposed timber ceiling and painted brick. Atelier režiséra Strekov by Bratislava-based Benko Benkova.

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 just like Romanek Design Studio‘s own workspace.
Huge thanks to Adam for sending us the link to this incredible listing!
This stunning French Empire majestic home was built in 1876 and was formerly known as the Sheilds Residence and one of Toronto’s oldest homes. It was recently restored & renovated and has 6 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, 11 ft ceilings and is over 5,000 sq ft. The attention to detail in every square inch and the colours and patterns are impeccable. I am in love. This could all be yours for a mere $4.725M 🙂 (Also kudos to SilverHouse for fab listing pics)
