The renovation of this Asa Norte apartment in Brasília was all about enhancing the social spaces. The empty nesters were downsizing from a larger duplex but still wanted the spaciousness they were accustomed to. The CoDA arquitetura design team embraced this challenge by creating integrated areas that maximize utility. A bedroom was repurposed to enlarge the living room, while the kitchen was reimagined to blend with the social zone seamlessly. Private spaces remained intact, with an expanded ensuite and versatile guest rooms doubling as home offices. The result? A unified, airy space embracing park views.

The exhuberant introvert

Posted on Fri, 4 Aug 2023 by midcenturyjo

Reimagining the traditional bungalow, this stunning urban house in Atwater, Los Angeles, seamlessly blends indoor and outdoor living. Turning its back to the street the living spaces open onto a vibrant backyard. Lovingly planted with wildflowers, edible berries, and grasses by the homeowners the backyard evokes a profound sense of intimacy and connection. The main living area unites the living, dining and kitchen spaces in an open concept offering a delightful treehouse-like view over the backyard oasis. Modern Bungalow by Rios.

I love colour and pattern and tend to lean towards maximalism. And then I fall head over heels in love with a home like this and I start to question everything about myself. At this point having a supremely neutral and refined, pared back home like this would make for such a pleasant second dwelling. It sure gives off serene vibes like no other.

The Schoolhouse

The Schoolhouse, merges old and new, combining contemporary details within conservation architecture. This family home blends dynamic and vibrant elements with understated and timeless spaces, designed to feel as though it has been permanently embedded in the historic building. Our challenge was to create an inviting, emotive atmosphere that captivates those who live there and takes them on a experiential journey.
In typical Kingston Lafferty Design fashion, this home is high drama, drenched in bold colour, full of graphic, shapely elements and I was completely sold when I got to the sunken living room. Photos: Barbara Corsico, and for more details check out est living.

Reach out and touch

Texture plays a pivotal role in any interior design and it becomes even more significant in a monochromatic house. In the absence of vibrant colours, texture becomes the driving force that breathes life and depth into the space, elevating it from flat and dull to intriguing and captivating. I just want to reach out and touch the rooms in this house. Yes through the computer screen!
