The Thurlow House by Harry Seidler is a beautiful mid century architectural work. Modern House has this project featured on their site and well worth a visit to read all about it. “This 1952 house by architect Harry Seidler, AC OBE is part of the important collection of early houses by one of Australia’s great architects. Research indicates Thurlow House as being number sixteen of eighteen houses completed by Harry Seidler within the first five years of his coming to Australia.” The obvious stand out is the stair case. The stair case links and directs an other wise wide open living space.The home loos to be very well cared for. The view from the pictures is a stunning bonus to this property.
Brentwood modern is just one of my favorite projects by Jamie Bush + Company. Jamie has a mind numbing portfolio full of stunning works that lean and play toward mid century. Around every corner of this project there is a beautiful vignette with just the right balance of color, shape and texture. That Evelyn Ackerman tapestry in the first picture is special piece of art. I also and digging on the full shag carpet treatment in the master bedroom.
Another amazing house for sale, this mid century in Illinois hosts an amazing collection. From the street you would never know what was waiting on the inside. Obviously the owners are collectors and have great taste. They also know how to showcase their passion. The house was built in 1958 and there is no mention of architect but for the price, I bet it gets snatched up rather quickly. The kitchen has some great cabinets.
If you are looking for a Mid century in Minnesota this may be perfect. I dream of finding such a well kept and cared for mid century gem like this one. Designed in 1958 by Ralph Rapson. The listing refers to the style of the home as international but I certainly see all of the influences of mid century. The floors appear to be Terrazzo and are stunning. I am certainly a sucker for white brick, walls of glass and a flat roof. The current owner has some great taste, and matches the home.
The Pear Tree House by Edgley Design is a beautiful example of modern architecture. There is a strong movement of vertical lines both on the interiors and exteriors. I love the light wood support on the exterior, they stand out nicely again the darker portions.The staircase is quite stunning, the glass barrier provides the feeling of and unrestrained openness. Finally, I love the tree growing right out of the middle of the courtyard. I appreciate the fact they built around the tree.
Modern in Moscow or the Python House by Panacom is a marvelous piece of architecture. If you know me by now, you know I was severely distracted by all of the amazing mid century Danish pieces found throughout the interiors. There are so many textures, colors and finishes found in this home, make me want to visit so I can examine all the details. The first picture I assume is the office or den sporting that amazing rosewood wall unit along with everything else perfect in the room. Truly a fantastic piece of art inside and out.
