The Chabot project by la SHED is a multi level refurbished modern home. I like the industrial feel of the stair case but it still has a modern look with the white powder coat. The idea of making everything clean lined and tucked away makes the spaces feel more open and larger. The exterior stair case is a modern work of art. The slatted metal is a beautiful touch.
These minimal interiors by Nicolas Schuybroek are a perfect exercise in restraint. No only restraint in color but shape and space. Obviously a fan of of Pierre Jeanneret the chairs make for some great contrasting angular shapes. I do like the interiors that have the older architecture. All of the moldings provide a reminder of the past but update with a monochromatic color scheme. Make sure to visit his site to view some other stunning projects.
The interiors of Gloria Cortina are layered with texture and mazing materials. It was a pleasure looking through Gloria’s portfolio of work, there is so much inspiration to be had. Sometimes contemporary can start looking like “cheap modern hotel” but that is in no way the case here. The first picture, yes that is bathroom. Who leeds with a bathroom picture? Rosewood and marble with perfect refined edges and nothing to hide, stunning. There are some appearances of mid century pieces here and there.
S H A D O V V S by Matt W. Moore is a stunning display of dimensional geometric expression. During a 2 month stay in Oakland, CA, and a 2 week residency within 886 Geary Gallery, Moore constructed a new body of work. The exhibition has 5 chapters. The pieces are so beautiful, I like that you can look at them straight away but as soon as you shift your gaze you get a whole other experience with dimension. Both the white and the color chapters have a level of depth that communicates a trick of the eye. Make sure to click over and take a look at the rest of the art, these are only a few of the pieces.
The Invermay House by Moloney Architecture is a beautiful geometric house full of amazing materials. The “wood boxes” counter positioned with the “concrete boxes” make for a dynamic family home. The fire place is a focal point in the family room with its custom wood holder base. The cantilevers on the house push past the cubes creating another dramatic visual plane. The bathroom is so minimal and modern.
This Energy Star modern home was found while I was snooping around ModernCharlotte.com. It ought my attention for its clean design but also that it appears to be a grouping of similar homes or small condos. I have always loved the idea of doing a community of new modern homes. I like that these don’t look “contemporary” or “oh look we aded some more windows and slanted the roof”, they almost have a international feel. Designed by Liquid Design the home is Energy Star and is NC Healthy Built certified and uses 38% less energy than average homes.
