I’m in my favourite Melbourne suburb of Fitzroy and I’m stalking one of my favourite house types, the warehouse conversion. Plenty of light, plenty of art, library on the landing and just a hop, skip and jump to all the inner-city cool that is Fitzroy. What more could I want? Oh maybe the estimated $1 800 000 to $2 000 000 to buy it. Link here while it lasts.
I love this really fun, mid-century modern home designed by Regan Baker. Second home, stylish brewery owners, decided to hire Regan Baker Design to transform their beloved Duboce Park home into an organic modern oasis reflecting their modern aesthetic and sustainable, green conscience lifestyle. From hops to floors, we worked extensively with our design savvy clients to provide a new footprint for their kitchen, dining and living room area, redesigned three bathrooms, reconfigured and designed the master suite, and replaced an existing spiral staircase with a new modern, steel staircase.

This may be my all time favourite warehouse conversion ever featured on this here blog. This beauty is a recently converted and extended ironmongers warehouse in London. THE KITCHEN!!! A total dream in tile, concrete, walnut, marble, copper, brass and brick. TO DIE FOR!!! I would stop there but I am also a new huge fan of terrazzo flooring so there’s that too. Available as a location home through Shoot Factory.
I’m in Amsterdam stalking a development site. A raw shell, gutted, rough and ready with jackhammered walls and neon surveyor’s marks… and I love it. I’ve included the computer generated renderings of the proposed apartment but is it wrong of me to love the romance of the raw and turn my back on the slick and chic of the new? (OK, OK I’d like a better mattress and perhaps a bathroom and kitchen but don’t dismiss my daydream out of hand.) You can see more here. Via DSTRCT.
Let’s play a game. Close your eyes. Now imagine your perfect New York loft apartment. Open your eyes and voilà this is it isn’t it? Well it is for me. Great Jones by Union Studio.
