Luxury reuse

Posted on Fri, 23 Jul 2021 by midcenturyjo

Alteration and change of use to this heritage listed commercial space has resulted in two levels of luxury loft like living.  Think old posts and beams meet marble, linen fluttering at old windows looking out onto the city, beautiful new details in an old colonial structure.

Casa Sa Mar

Posted on Thu, 22 Jul 2021 by KiM

Welcome to Casa Sa Mar – a ”señorial” townhouse in the center of Sóller, Mallorca, beautifully and carefully restored from its 1896 origins. 450 sqm, ceiling heights of up to 5m and a large courtyard with a pool, with walking distance to the sea, mountains and everything that the beautiful village of Sóller has to offer. Created by Durietz Design & Development. Intricate tile floors, an adorned olive wood parquet, crystal ball staircase ornaments, a solid piece marble sink, and much more – all of the original details have been kept and carefully restored. What a stunner!

Masia en el Empordà

This home is a work of art. The juxtaposition of the ancient farmhouse structure with the modern, minimalist design of the interior is breathtaking. Designed by Barcelona-based design gallery and interior design advisory office Miquel Alzueta Projects.

Neutral nirvana

Her own firm’s profile sums it up best.  “An emotive potency defines Fiona Lynch Office’s work. Incorporating architectural and interior design services, our atmospheric creations embody a spirited minimalism with a keen emphasis on custom joinery, furniture and lighting design.”

A mix of raw and refined, tactile and smooth, handcrafted and hi-tech. The dichotomy defines the spaces but a restrained, neutral palette and a natural materiality cement them as one. Sorento House by Fiona Lynch.

Round the back of the shops

Posted on Mon, 19 Jul 2021 by midcenturyjo

“This award-winning house was designed by architect Hugh Strange in 2010. It is cleverly tucked behind a line of Victorian buildings on Evelyn Street in Deptford; it unfolds over the ground floor of the original period terrace, opening onto a private courtyard garden and the new single-storey house beyond. A contemporary palette of materials including concrete, glass, cross-laminated timber and hurricane-felled Nicaraguan hardwood has been used to dramatic effect throughout.”

A zen haven opens off a common foyer of a Victorian era terrace. Bespoke joinery, windows opening to courtyards allowing light to flood in, wood lined walls and ceilings all define this ground floor flat in London’s Deptford. This simple oasis was for sale through The Modern House but saddly it’s under contract. Doesn’t stop us from popping these ideas away in our inspiration files.
