Halldor Gunnløgssons house

The Halldor Gunnløgssons house is a pretty amazing example of modernism. Designed and built in 1958 by architect, professor Halldor Gunnløgsson as a private residence. Gunnløgsson lived in the house until his death in 1985. According to the website the house did not need much restoration because it was so well taken care of. At first glance I could see some people thinking the house is too dark but I for one love it. The dark exterior with the dark slate floors are stunning.

Berkeley California Mid century by David K. Burton

This Berkeley California Mid century home by David K. Burton has been kept in pristine condition. The design work on this house started in 1959 and finished in 1960. “the home was constructed in the post-and-beam method, using old-growth quarter-sawn redwood in exterior and interior walls.” You couldn’t build one with those materials these days. The openness of the home was obviously derived form the post and beam construction, a classic element of mid century architecture. Make sure to visit the site, there is plenty of addition information about Burton and the house.

He has a great way of mixing mid century with contemporary give spaces an authenticity. It also looks like he has some nice projects in the works. If you have a second check out Neal’s work.

Michel Penneman

I have featured the work of Michel Penneman before but I must have missed the piece on his own apartment. Of course my favorite, older architecture with modern furnishings. Michel obviously has great taste in art and design as the interiors of his home are lovingly curated. I am a white wall sort of guy so I appreciate that there aren’t any “accent walls” but to each their own.

Palm Springs mid century captured by Tom Blachford

Yesterday I received a press release about Palm Springs mid century homes being photographed by Tom Blachford. Photographing anything Mid century has become fairly popular. We see it in TV ads, fashion shoots and just about any other form of advertising. What makes Tom’s work different? These homes were captured under a super moon. I really don’t know what a super moon is but I am guessing it is a large and bright moon. These images are very different from the standard day or dusk shots and I really appreciate that a different angel was taken with his approach.

Mid century by Peter Foggo and David Thomas

THIS HOUSE! This mid century house designed in the late 60′s by Peter Foggo and David Thomas is simply stunning. I think this is my new favorite house but that may change next week. The structure feels as though it is floating. The construction of steel and glass is amazing. It sure doesn’t hurt that the current owners have such great taste in MCM furniture. The restoration on this home is flawless.
