Dark and dramatic merges old and new

Posted on Wed, 21 Jul 2021 by midcenturyjo

With a design concept informed by its distinctive facade this Melbourne house seamlessly combines the old and the new. Walls of steel and glass allow the light to flood into the extension’s interior. Dark and moody is dramatic, not drab. The Dutch Gable House by Melbourne-based Austin Design Associates.

Working on a Saturday

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. Faraday Street Studio home of Fearon Hay Architects.

Burnt toffee

Posted on Tue, 15 Jun 2021 by midcenturyjo

Sophisticated and moody. Masculine and beautifully curated. Mature yet at times quirky. It’s like burnt toffee, complex yet bittersweet. Highland by Memphis, Tennessee based Sean Anderson Design. (Kim has followed Sean’s career for many years. You can see her posts here.)

A dark and modern waterfront weekend home

Posted on Wed, 5 May 2021 by KiM

Dartk and moody, modern and minimalist. Blurring the lines between outdoors and indoors. This weekend home is designed to maximise water views while accommodating a low maintenance, single story layout. The spaces within the house are arranged around a central courtyard which not only acts as a physical separation between the guest wing and public areas but allows views of the water for every room. All of the building materials, charred wood siding, zinc metal and exposed concrete, require little maintenance and age gracefully over time. These materials reflect the owner’s desire for a home that will blend within the landscape and provide a relaxing retreat from the city. Architect: Adam Jordan. Photos: Eric Petschek.
