“A minimalist approach employed throughout this pavilion style renovation creates a home that is unpretentious and quiet, calming and restorative allowing its owners to revive and recharge away from busy professional careers. Soft colours, screens and an extensive use of natural materials hint effortlessly at Japanese architecture as a primary inspiration. Large windows maximise the garden view while allowing an abundance of natural light to soften the interior. Strong architectural forms of the house and terrace areas including the striking white timber fins pavilion terrace are softened by a considered landscaping approach. Open plan living areas with fully retractable sliding glass panels allow for a seamless transition to the outdoor timber deck, creating a strong connection to the garden. This flexibility also allows for options to follow the sun, shade and comfortable breeze in summer.”

A fibro beach shack on the Victorian coast gets one hell of a makeover by SJB. This project is now seven years old. Just goes to show that good design stands the test of time.

“Warmth and character were of the utmost importance when designing this Eagle Rock ground up new construction. Modern lighting, clean lines, beautiful vaulted ceilings and an attention to detail gave the home a consistent, jaw dropping presence—all while feeling equally intimate and cozy.”

Mixing Japandi-style and a natural materials palette this complete remodel not only created a stylish contemporary home but also an equally smart secondary housing unit. EagleRock Modern by A1000xBetter.

Working on a Saturday

It’s like I say week in week out. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it’s somewhere stylish. Portal State, a real estate agency in Valencia by Paloma Bau Studio.

Bettencourt Lodge

Posted on Tue, 23 May 2023 by KiM

I have been following Matthew and Rick Bettencourt of Bettencourt Manor on IG for some time now and have been in love with their style – it’s earthy, rustic, vintage, geometric, contemporary….a little of everything rolled into this most wonderful package. They bought a 1400 sq ft log cabin in the Kawarthas (Omemee, On.) as an all-season escape from city life and the 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom Bettencourt Lodge is now available on Airbnb for an escape of your own! It is an absolutely stunning getaway in both summer and winter.

Narrow living in Spain

Posted on Mon, 22 May 2023 by midcenturyjo

This comprehensive renovation and interior design of a vacation rental building located in the old town of Valencia is by Paloma Bau Studio. Reinforcing metal rises up through the 4 floors providing not only structural support but also somewhere for sinks, furniture and accessories to be hung. Each floor is coloured zoned and a curve is used as a repeating motif. It’s an ode to living in a narrow space, exploring solutions for each floor that is only a few meters wide.
