I appreciate the interiors work by multidisciplinary designers C+M Studio. Founded in 2012 by Christopher Glanville (M. Arch) – the C – and Megan Burns (B. Des Arch) – the M, their style is that of simplistic or paired down elegance with a modern overall presence. I do appreciated the minimalist approach and at the same time there are enough textures and or patterns in the room to supply enough stimulation to the senses. The color pallets are also kept to a minimum creating a continuity throughout.
I don’t think I have ever posted about a modern classroom before. Salmela Architect has a pretty great body of work and I have shared it before. This modern building resides at the University of Minnesota, Duluth. I like the diversity of materials used on the exterior. The two white pillar like structures in the courtyard are an echo of each other in different proportions, one being the wood and the other being the fire. I know I didn’t have any classrooms like this when I went to college.
I am really liking this article about Interior Architect Lionel Jadot at Coffeeklatch. His house is so eclectic and full of interesting colors and textures. It was interesting reading about Lionel as he grew up repurposing materials and using them to create. I am jealous of anyone that has a cool vintage motorcycle in their entry way.
John, who has an amazing mid century modern in Dallas Texas recently wrote letting me know he had to sale his pride and joy due to his work. The home was designed by AIA-honored architect and Dallas native David Braden. I to would be torn if I had to leave such a nicely kept MCM gem. The beamed ceilings were instantly what caught my attention, they give the interior heigh and architectural significance. The wall of sliding glass doors also open the house up to the outside creating more living space. John I hope someone does her justice!
I know this isn’t a mid century house full of stunning furniture but I do appreciate and like minimal design. This minimal house by MIRAG has a wonderful layout as it builds with the terrain. A series of cubes build up and down a ridge with additional squares operating as windows. I like all the concrete surfaces, it may feel a little cold but the texture is nice. The kitchen is the best design element that exercises minimal.
I heard that Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick’s NYC Townhome was up for sale but didn’t really think much of it. I ran across some images today and was quite taken back. I guess you never know what a celebrities style or tastes are until they put their house up for sale. I enjoyed looking through these images not because the place belongs to two big celebrities but because they were beautiful and designed so well. The banister it quite amazing along with all of the artwork. If I had a home that big and that nice I may just never leave it.
