It’s like I say week in week out. If you have to drag yourself into work on a Saturday it helps if it’s somewhere stylish. Sydney co-working space Example House by ACME.

A renovated 1700 stone home in England

Sharing another period home that I have fallen in love with thanks to Shoot Factory. This Grade II listed property was built around 1700. It includes a 5 bedroom restored and renovated stone home with outbuildings including a restored barn and man cave. The exterior has all the charm you could want in an old English home, while the interior has beautiful original details with some modern touches. (Photographer: Richard Oxford)

Bathing beauties

Is it wrong to want to pull out recently renovated bathrooms (bathroom’s that I loved until now) and want to recreate these looks from Sarah Sherman Samuel? You don’t think so? Phew! I better get the demolition hammer out then.

There were three concepts that guided the transformation of this small 16th century church in the Basque region of Spain: the history, the client and that this part of the project was just the beginning. At the start of the project, the roof had collapsed into the interior and the church was in a dire state of structural instability. The restoration was as sensitive as possible with Garmendia Cordero Arquitectos and their client agreeing that whatever comes next will be achieved “by respecting what was already there, leaving visible what is generated in the present, voluntarily and consciously facing the history of the previous building, without touching or making up the scars that show their travel almost as directly as a story would.”
