I’ve always loved suspended fireplaces, their fat bulbous bodies hanging in space. Imagine my reaction (a gasp and a happy squeal) when I went virtual real estate strolling scrolling and found one hanging in a glass box, well a glass walled extension anyway. I’m in the Melbourne suburb of Prahran checking out a period home with a modern open-plan addition which spills into a low maintenance garden. You’ll find it here while the link lasts.

An elegant estate

Outside the windows it’s ceaseless golf greens. Inside it’s ceaseless stylish space. If only all manifestations of Russian wealth were as lovely as this Moscow home, Agalarov Estate, by local architect Petr Yushin.

 

Thoroughly modern

This contemporary addition and renovation adds a pared back elegance to a Victorian era home whose original style is usually associated with an overindulgence in applied details. The result is clean lined, minimal luxury. Thoroughly modern living with respect for the past. Batavia South Yarra by Robson Rak.

It’s a dream that many of us hold … to live in a converted warehouse. The exposed beams or brick, that industrial feel, the space! This charming home started life as a factory in the 1890s but its conversion (designed by architect Micheal Muir) is less industrial and vast open spaces, more intimacy and sanctuary. I’m real estate strolling scrolling in the Sydney suburb of Annandale and I’d move in in a heart beat. Link here while it lasts.

Light and dark

A study of light and shadow, of old and new, of the expressive and the minimalist, of public and private. It’s about enhancing the everyday, of bringing modern luxury living to a heritage property through a respectful balance between authentic preservation and contemporary design.
