This modern family apartment found in an issue of Elle Decor Italy is full of some very recognizable pieces. I always enjoy seeing the people that not only created the space but live in it as well. I enjoy the diversity of textures and surfaces found through these spaces. The marble in the bathroom is monumental in size creating large geometric blocks. The groupings are art are nice as well. Things feel organized but it ale feels a little organic, not too much in place.
The Kambara Residence by Richard Neutra hits the market for the very first time. There has been only one owner and the house was kept all original. There were eight or so of these colony houses at Silver Lake California. The name conveys that these homes were similar in style and construction but to the contrary they were separate and individual. Neutra believed that the well being of a person was directly linked to their home. Not that I have that sort of money but 2.3M seams pretty reasonable for such and amazing pice of architecture.
James Evans the architect responsible for this stunning mid century in New Canaan was a student of Louis Kahn. The unique hyperbolic paraboloid roof design is not something you see every day. The roof is so dramatic put pure in shape. The upper floor is nice and open although the floors and the cabinets aren’t doing anything for me, I guess that is personal taste. Could you image calling this structure home and pulling up to it every day after work? It could be your for a cool 2M.
The modern white house by Malone Maxwell Borson Architects appears to be an older build but there isn’t any additional info that I can find on their site. The combination of white brick and the aluminum fame windows is a nice combo. The amount of windows create a dramatic pattern echoing the horizontal bricks. I don’t care for the interior choices so much but the structure is amazing.
Humbert & Poyet have a diverse portfolio working on restaurant, business and private residences. I was more interested in the private interiors as they had more of a modern aesthetic. All of their interiors have a clean approach with an exactness in the design. I was also drawn to some of the vintage pieces found through their projects, they always ad a different dimension as vintage pieces have a an older “face”.
This old mansion turned apartment is sporting a fairly eclectic approach when it comes to its interiors. This is only the lower part of mansion but I am very drawn to all of the old architecture. Typically crown molding really doesn’t do much for me but when it is kept monochromatic it make a subtle statement. There are also some nice mid century pieces at play.
