A renovated Park Avenue prewar apartment

Posted on Tue, 2 Jun 2020 by KiM

I absolutely love this Park Avenue prewar apartment architected and designed by MKCA. It has a contemporary art deco feel to it and has some exuberant touches that keep it young and fresh. Located in a distinguished Carnegie Hill co-op building, the 2,800 sf apartment has been reimagined for contemporary family life while retaining its original gracious formality. The renovation concentrated on maximizing the already well-proportioned formal spaces, including a generous entrance gallery, formal living room and dining room; while converting the dark and crowded storage and service areas into functional contemporary living elements.

More drama – Paseo de los lagos

Posted on Wed, 27 May 2020 by KiM

Making a statement again with art, dramatic furnishings and in this case within a very large, modern home. Not for the timid. I don’t know many people who would be on board with sliding doors upholstered in bold fabric with huge silver lightning bolt handles. Among other things….. The owners must be art collectors. Or own a gallery. Another project by Carlos López of L.A. Studio.

Flamboyant modernism in a Madrid home

Flamboyant, sassy, modern, vintage, colourful, dramatic…I love everything about this Madrid home designed by Carlos López of L.A. Studio. There is so much energy and just a general aura of coolness here.

A playful and pragmatic house

“An extension to a single fronted Victorian Terrace located within Melbourne’s inner-north. Storybook House is a study of inner city living, this project optimises the existing footprint to create a functional small family home with a series of multi-use spaces. The building is curated to frame views into a series of open garden spaces – including internal courtyards, a roof garden and borrowing the landscape from the adjacent park and outlook to Melbourne’s skyline.”

Add in sustainable design principles, clever storage solutions and reference to the local community in materials and shape the result is collaborative, innovative, and pragmatic yet playful design. Storybook House by Folk Architects.
