The Moonlight House by Giovanni D’Ambrosio Architecture is quite a stunning structure. I was instantly engaged by the interiors. I almost feel like I am inside a mid century modern house with the slatted ceilings. The stone work coming into the interiors also gives me a feeling of MCM. The jutting roof lines are a dramatic architectural element while giving volume to the interiors of the house.
I came across the work of Fernando Santangelo while fumbling around on Tumblr was quite impressed. The first pic is one of the nicest bathrooms I have seen in a while, probably the insane wood patters on the door. He also has some interesting lighting fixture designs, including this red and green cross based lamp which I like. It wasn’t hard to spot the George Nakashima pieces used in some of these spaces. His fire place tool set is interesting and outside of the norm, I like it.
This industrial modern loft by Pinoni + Lazzarini has some ingenious design elements. The first item that caught my eye was the steel and concrete stairs. They feel like a grouping of stacked blocks. The openness of the steel blocks also adds a form of shelving while one of the concrete steps runs the length of the wall creating a long bench. The lighting along the baseboard in the second to last pic is a nice touch.
The Allum House by Payne & Hunt is a nice example of mid century preserved. This home is a sold listing on the Australian website Modern House. I can appreciate that a lot of the pieces in the home are not the super exciting rare design that we all drool over but it still so nice. The house was built in 1966 – 1968. I don’t know why I like the bathroom, it is screaming 70’s. Make sure to visit the site because there are some amazing homes to be seen.
This modernist addition by DKO is quite stunning. The original facade of the house was kept while the addition has some very strong design pieces from the modernist movement of Southern California. The clear story windows add that extra design element that sets off the architecture. I don’t know why I enjoy a cinder block wall here and there. Maybe it is the rawness and blocking pattern? The steel framed wall of windows adds that element of expansiveness. I spy some nice Danish lovelies in there as well. I need more pictures of this place!
I am sure there is quite a bit of modern in Madrid but this apartment designed by Las2Mercedes is so nice. There are a lot of amazing things to look at but it doesn’t feel over crowded or cramped. All of the decor and pieces work nicely with each other. I enjoy those huge baseboard moldings and how they encompass the room creating a wonderful architectural statement. I have always like the architecture of an older building mixed with mid century and contemporary furniture.
