Old versus new. American desert and French Provincial. Rustic stone juxtaposed with smooth plaster and tiles. Inside reaches out through walls of steel and glass and climbing through it all is a sinuous staircase of wood and iron. Rough luxe versus sophisticated modern living. At its heart this rambling stone edifice is first and foremost a gathering place for family and friends. Private residence #4 at Silverleaf Scottsdale, Arizona OZ Architects.
A lot of us are compelled to stay home in these dangerous times. Others have no choice but to go out into the big, bad world to help others or keep the wheels turning. I can’t use my usual spiel about being dragged into work on a weekend. It doesn’t feel right. So many of us have lost our jobs. I’ll just share this stylish workplace instead. Officina Biasol, the design studio of Melbourne-based Biasol. Stay safe!
Timeless and refined yet with a casual, modern take on apartment living. The kitchen and living areas of this Nob Hill home by San Francisco based interior designers Cass + Nico features a rich mix of bespoke and the carefully curated with an emphasis on materials, texture and light. The new classic living.

It’s like I say time and time again. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it’s somewhere stylish. Thérapie Clinic by Kingston Lafferty Design.
(P.S. Our thoughts are with those who cannot go to work at any time because of the corona virus emergency. Stay safe and sound and may we all be able to swap “war” stories after the crisis has passed.)
A holiday home in the Mexican city of San Miguel De Allende by PPAA (Pérez Palacios Arquitectos Asociados) looks inward on a series of patios. A study of voids and 3D spaces the house is not so much introspective as it is oasis and retreat. A fascinating study of light and shade, solid and void, public and private.
