Far Pond

Posted on Wed, 14 Nov 2012 by midcenturyjo

A beautiful home on the banks of a wetlands pond in Southampton, New York. A perfect house for a perfect site. This ’70s kit house has been renovated by Bates Masi Architects, sympathetically respecting the original home but addressing sustainability, latest technologies and the relationship to the site and view. A house, an environment, enriched and enhanced. Perfect.

The Boat House

One more small gem from Bosworth Hoedemaker. A boathouse renovation at Hood Canal on Puget Sound. Simple and subtle to balance the mighty view. The perfect spot to watch the sun go down, to listen to the soft lap at the water’s edge.

ix design

Posted on Tue, 30 Oct 2012 by KiM

ix design is an interior design and architecture firm based in New York that I recently came across while doing some creative googling. Directors Gary Spanier and Michael Wood only have a couple of residential proejcts under their belt but both are really well executed. A perfect blend of modern and contemporary where the resulting vibe is classy without being pretentious, and completely liveable with impeccable attention to detail. This project is a West Village loft located within a structure built in 1931 as a truck garage then converted to condominiums in 1983, the apartment’s immediate design challenges included an awkward geometry, limited natural light and outdated décor. In response to the owner’s desire for an inviting, warm retreat, a natural walnut was used throughout to anchor and reinforce the unity of the space. Juxtaposed against a bright architectural envelope, plush, engaging fabrics and contemporary lighting infuse a dash of luxury while classic modern furniture pieces provide functionality and a simple sophistication.



Like a rock

Posted on Mon, 29 Oct 2012 by midcenturyjo

Solid as a rock. Anchored to the dunes. Protection against wind and spray, sun and seasons. A stylish shelter from the elements. More from Martín Gómez Arquitectos. Stone and concrete, timber and glass. An imposing facade hides an intimate family home. Punta del Este in Uruguay must be a beautiful place to live.
