Saunders Architecture designed this beautiful dark cladded home in Bergen, Norway. The elevated portion of the home give the structure a dynamic floating feeling while provide additional functional outdoor space. The interiors done in mostly white are a great contrast the the almost all dark exterior. I have always been drawn to a geometric building block type of structure like this one. I also like that there are people enjoying the home in the pictures, its just the little things.
Coy Yiontis Architects a studio practicing in Prahran, Victoria Australia has a fantastic portfolio of projects. I love how, and I have noticed this in Australia more than other countries they keep the front of the homes traditional but the additions or remodels are modern and contemporary. I don’t know if this is because of codes and regulations or that is the thing to do. The juxtaposition is fantastic.
This modern build by Studio AR&D Architects is a stunning mid century inspired home located in Indian Wells California. This home is incredible in so many ways. There are some elements that I love: The longer cinder block, wood slatted walls, walls of glass and concrete floors. The house is so open and free flowing. If the house wasn’t enough, the landscaping is a perfect compliment to the structure. Studio AR&D also did a lot of custom fabrication for the home as well, like the honeycomb gate. This is only a few of the images, click through to see the rest of the house. There are even construction pics.
Rodolphe Parente has a wonderful bank of projects. I can tell that every little detail is considered and executed with precision. Where to start? How about the red wood geometric flooring in the kitchen, striking. In pictures 1 and 4 the kitchen island made up of marble and brass geometric masses is such a nice architectural element. There is a good mix of private interiors to be seen, so go take a look.
Leslie Gooday designed this home in 1962 for himself. It is almost a rule for me that I never show a empty home but man, there is something so beautiful about this home combined with the fact that it is empty. The first two pictures are of the home at its completion in 1967 and now it is currently on the market. There are so many amazing angles and textures to be found. There are an abundance of original features and builtins that have gone untouched. Make sure to go read more about this amazing mid century time capsule.
This modern pool house by ACT ROMEGIALLI is an “extension” if you will to an existing 1900 liberty building. The clients requested that the pool house would not interfere with the existing landscape. Subsequently the house almost sits subterranean compared the home. The pool house was meant to be a complete separate structure and experience than the main house. There is a subtle path that walks one out to find the oasis. I love how modern and clean the exterior and interiors are.
