Arch House

Posted on Thu, 6 May 2021 by midcenturyjo

“This project is a triplex for a young couple who travel extensively for business who wanted the feeling of a quiet sanctuary for their new home. They partnered with BAAO to provide furnishings throughout the house. The existing building is a relatively compact Anglo-Italianate townhouse circa 1860, and a three-story extension was added to expand the living space. The house’s signature arched doorway and front window were the inspiration for much of the detailing for the renovated spaces.”

The repetitive arch motif leads the eye from room to room and floor to floor. The colour palette is restrained but pops of wallpaper and luxurious stone lift the scheme.

Mid-century meets traditional in this Lisbon apartment by André Vilar de Azevedo of Studio AVA and the result is fresh and decidedly on trend. Who would have thought that you could mix your blue and white pots with Jeanneret chairs and that a simple white hallway with modern mouldings and antique statuary could be so sexy?

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.

Crittall & Hill

Posted on Tue, 4 May 2021 by midcenturyjo

“We are passionate about long lasting design, working with a balance of opposing elements and materials to create a sense of energy and intrigue.

So few photographs in their portfolio but so much to like.  One to keep an eye on Stroud based design studio Crittall & Hill.

A double-height void is the centrepiece of this extension to an Edwardian house by De Rosee Sa. The Dulwich home is in an area with strict heritage guidelines and the client wished to enhance the character of the property while remaining sympathetic to the surroundings. A wonderful example of how modern and heritage can work in harmony with each other.
