This East Village duplex penthouse was owned by designer Alfredo Paredes and if you didn’t see the terrace photos you might assume this was located somewhere in the Mediterranean or tucked away in a Tuscan hillside. A fireplace, oversized, casement windows and 5 arched glass doors, natural white oak bookcases, panelling and cabinetry, raw plaster walls, reclaimed wood ceilings, French limestone tile floors all imbue this “it can’t be New York” vibe and the neutral colour palette of cream, brown and black perfectly offsets the architecture. This is stunning. Photos: Miguel Flores-Vianna.

Designer’s own in Rome

Posted on Tue, 19 Sep 2023 by midcenturyjo

In the heart of Colle Oppio, within a historic 1900s building, Rome-based architecture and interior design studio Punto Zero worked its magic on a traditional 115 sqm apartment the home of its founder Giorgio Marchese. The original layout was a classic linear design with rooms all facing outward. However, the space was completely transformed with new volumes and unexpected additions all in the quest for light and the amazing views.

Victorian Elegance Renewed

Posted on Fri, 15 Sep 2023 by midcenturyjo

Nestled in North Fitzroy, the owners of this Victorian house needed help to revitalize their tired extension. Within the existing L-shaped structure from the mid-2000s, the layout was reimagined to create a bespoke kitchen with seamless access to the garden and deck. A striking marble island now anchors the open living area. A simple, elegant palette with warm white cabinetry and oak accents unifies the space. Custom glass doors divide and frame new perspectives, while carefully selected lighting elevates the interior, fusing classic and contemporary elements into a light-filled home.

A masterful collaboration

Posted on Wed, 13 Sep 2023 by midcenturyjo

“Assisting a creative and accomplished design professional like Ryan Hughes with his personal residence involves a collaboration unlike any of our commercial projects. Ryan was the design decision maker and force behind this strong and beautiful home. We acted as sounding board, and documented the ideas he envisioned for finishes and interior architecture. Ryan chose all furnishings and art throughout. His goal to have a “simple cottage getaway” is energized by his choices throughout: confident furniture shapes, rich colors, and an expressive collection of art. Located in the Mado Hamlet in the Serenbe community, this little powerhouse of a cottage is an intimate gathering place and getaway since 2020.”

It may be a simple cottage getaway but it’s a masterful collaboration. Impactful and creative the Hughes Residence by Smith Hanes.

“A multi-generational family needed a refresh for their holiday home in Atherton, California. Last updated almost 30 years ago, the historic Tudor was renovated and furnished throughout to create a welcoming home for the owner’s adult children and young grandchildren. Respecting the architecture and the varying style preferences of the extended family, we blended traditional and modern styles seamlessly throughout the home. Spaces were reconfigured to reflect the needs of the younger generations – turning the home theater into a guest room, the formal living room into the media room, and the sunroom into the play room.”

Fun, fabulous and family-friendly it’s a refreshing take on modern living. Atherton Estate by Form + Field.
