“This award-winning house was designed by architect Hugh Strange in 2010. It is cleverly tucked behind a line of Victorian buildings on Evelyn Street in Deptford; it unfolds over the ground floor of the original period terrace, opening onto a private courtyard garden and the new single-storey house beyond. A contemporary palette of materials including concrete, glass, cross-laminated timber and hurricane-felled Nicaraguan hardwood has been used to dramatic effect throughout.”
A zen haven opens off a common foyer of a Victorian era terrace. Bespoke joinery, windows opening to courtyards allowing light to flood in, wood lined walls and ceilings all define this ground floor flat in London’s Deptford. This simple oasis was for sale through The Modern House but saddly it’s under contract. Doesn’t stop us from popping these ideas away in our inspiration files.
“We value people and design, passion and innovation, quality and integrity, collaboration and relationships, working hard and having fun.”

I can imagine standing in the dining room of this Melbourne house breathing in the serenity. A clock in another room chimes, soft music plays in the kitchen. I’m sure I can hear the electric kettle rumble and click off. What a beautiful tranquil sanctuary to visit even better to own. An oasis in this time of turmoil.

The perfect marriage of rustic finishes and contemporary lifestyle. Minimalist almost monastic, carefully curated and austerely beautiful. La Coruña in the Galacian region of northwest Spain by Madrid-based Las Perelli Studio.
“Nestled between forest, dune and sea our cottage style Starwood Residence is the manifestation of our design-minded client’s vision for a home that sustains a lifestyle rooted in family and flow … the house was stripped to its bones and lovingly brought back to life, with reclaimed French terracotta hexagon tile the stage upon which clay finished walls, rouge marble and custom joinery interplay with a quietly eclectic harmony of furniture, art and accessories.”
A mind set of reuse, recycle and repurpose has created a home that is about comfort and sustainability. A wonderfully laid back house in Bloemendaal, The Netherlands by Avenue Design Studio.
