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

“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.

Another visit with Jason Arnold

It’s been a few years since we featured the work of Nashville interior designer Jason Arnold here and here, and I continue to be smitten with his spaces that are sophisticated yet livable, classy and timeless, old mixed with new.

Elegant and beautifully curated this Elizabeth Bay, Sydney apartment by Handelsmann + Khaw like the previous London apartment relies on a restrained colour palette and natural materials to imbue a sense of peace and calm in a hectic city. Chic, sophisticated and refined. Devine.
