“The brief — Enhance the connection between old and new — and internal and external — by introducing an addition to this Federation home within strict heritage conservation guidelines in Sydney’s quiet Inner West. Original rooms would remain intact, with the crafting of new living spaces in the rear, as well as a pool that would still allow for a garden large enough for kids to play.”
The coming together of old and new, family space and private space, indoors and out. A modern extension that sits happily with the existing Edwardian era house and the streetscape. Heritage and history do indeed meet contemporary comfort. Bona Vista by Studio Prineas.
You would think ocean views in an apartment in Biarritz would be the shining moment but this entire apartment is designed with the most exquisite attention to detail with lots of curves and colours and patterns inspired by the ocean and the views from the windows. An absolute gem inside and out. Designed by Claude Cartier. Photos by Francis Amiand.
“Our Beach House at Mermaid represents a refined beach house design with a bold expression of form and materials. From the west orientated urban streetscape the façade responds to privacy and solar concerns by way of sliding timber screens set within white vertical walls and horizontal concrete floor and roof elements in a two storey form. The two storey form boldly cantilevers towards the street over feature stone walls and glass entry. Dense landscaping softens the built form and provides a unique arrival experience. Externally and internally the material palette is a composition of natural materials and textures including stone, concrete and timber set against white surfaces. Internally high ceiling and voids capturing light creates a variety of unique spaces.”

Interior design and art, the two great passions of Juan Moreno López-Calull of John Brown Projects. This Barcelona apartment with its contemporary clean lines, wonderful light and city views is elevated by the choice of modern sculpture and large art works. It’s the perfect example is big is good, cluttered is a bother.
