Contemporary villa in Brussels

This contemporary villa in Brussels was designed by Bataille & iBens in collaboration with architect Koen Pauwels. I don’t usually “double dip” but Bataille & iBens portfolio is full of inspiring interiors and architecture. I can appreciate that the owner of the home is an art collector. In the third picture I think is unusually nice to see artwork ing like that, who says you can’t hand it close to the floor. The landscaping is immaculate and beautifully compliments the structure.

Residence M by CHT Architects

CHT Architects has created and amazing house full of beautiful materials that work so well together. The house is understated in a way that it is timeless. There is no lime green backsplash in the kitchen or bright orange accent wall, (nothing against those). I love the mix of natural materials, the marble wood and concrete tiles work in harmony. The kitchen would easily be a dream space for me.

Chris Nguyen a home of his own

The talents of Chris Nguyen have been featured here on Plastolux several times so he is no stranger. This time we get to see what Chris has done for his own home. There is obviously a design obsessed person living here as we can see plenty of mid century modern goodness throughout the rooms of this home. Design obsessed is a good thing in my book. I really like the older structure and what has been done with updates. The open ceiling on the lower level gives the space a loft like industrial feel. The slate floors and the beams in the ceilings are another favorite element.

Updated mid century in New Jersey

I don’t think I have featured anything mid century in New Jersey before but this one is nicely done. The majority of MCM homes that have had this much work done have too many contemporary finishes. I feel that the interiors are good but of course I would need some older pieces in the mix. I really appreciate the quality of materials used in the remodel. The kitchen is a stunner, the layout and materials work so well with the post and beam construction. The best feature is the front door and entry way, how amazing is that all glass door running floor to ceiling? Did I mention that the house was for sale?

Contemporary extension by naturehumaine

This contemporary extension by naturehumaine is quite the juxtaposition. The owners needed more space than their small 1920’s house but they wanted something more modern. Many of you know that I love this type of addition, I wonder how the neighbors feel. The volumes created in the new addition with the high ceilings are amazing. I can also appreciate the interior finishes, clean and simple.

Mid century by Wexler & Harrison

This Palm Springs mid century modern home by Wexler & Harrison is a sure stand out in my mind. “The current owner spent 7 years lovingly restoring this exceptional home & consulting with Donald Wexler for his input throughout on how to retain the original artistry but use modern fixtures & finishes for the perfect marriage with todays living.” I love that the owner was able to visit and talk with Donald Wexler during the restoration, for some reason it makes the home that much more important. If you are in the market for an iconic desert modernist house, this could be the one for you.
