I recently came across the contemporary designs of Roderick Vos and they are delightful in so many ways. The marketing or how the designs are displayed and promoted are important to me. Roderick Vos does an outstanding job with showcasing his designs with actual situations and amazing stylists. You could certainly spend some time going through his site. I really like his coffee tables, the geometric lines and the multi level storage are great.
This modern expansion by Pendal and Neille is minimal excellence. What is not to love about this house? The interiors are pretty much void of anything warm and fuzzy but at the same time all of the wood makes for a warmer environment. The movement of natural light throughout the interiors was achieve by skylights and walls of glass. I have a great appreciation and love for the merging of old and new. The brick reminds the tenants of where the house came from.
Mid century in Mexico City, where Fernando Romero was kind enough to share his amazing home with the life style magazine NOWNESS. “Designed in 1955 by homegrown architect Francisco Artigas, the house is located in the leafy suburbs of Mexico City, adjacent to one of largest city parks in the Western Hemisphere”. This is the first time that Fernando has let anyone inside his home and I must say “THANK YOU”. The home is picture perfect in my mind when I think of the highest level of design for mid century architecture. I love the steel and glass structures of this time period. If you are not familiar with NOWNESS, take the time today and watch some of the beautiful documentaries/short stories that can be found there.
The Stonewood house by Breathe Architecture has some nice design elements that echo throughout the house. The repetition of pattern is found in the finishes both on the exterior and interior of this house. One thing that I have never seen in an architects portfolio is the use of people or “characters” in their photos. The characters in the house reflect the name of the project. In this case it is a man pounding a stone. Make sure to check out the “red cross house” and the “model house”. I like it, very original.
Don’t mind me, just stalking this nice little mid century modern Illinois house for sale. I love how the exterior feels small and set back but due to the large windows and open floor plan the house feels a lot bigger on the inside. The wood slatted ceilings are what make this house for me. I might have a hard time living with the bathrooms, which seem to be original. Kitchen cabinetry and bathroom tile by Paul McCobb, yes please. How about the basement, has a groovy lounge feel to it. This would be the perfect house for me to nest in.
This fashion designers penthouse is a nice mix of modern elements. The eclectic approach come from the travels of designer Bruno Pieters who guides the creative direction at Hugo by Hugo Boss. The stone work adds a nice authenticity to the architecture and plays well with the other older textures in the space. I really like seeing how other creatives live and what they choose to surround themselves with. Of course a thank you goes out to freunde von freunden for continually creating this fantastic original content.
