This mid century Melbourne home is filled with some amazing art and furniture. I like how the walls are cover in art from the period of their home. The home was originally designed by architects Godfrey, Spowers, Hughes, Mewton & Lobb, (thats a lot of partners) and built in 1964 for a doctor who practiced from the house. It’s not a coincidence that the owners of this home also are also the owners of Gallery Midlandia, a shop carrying vintage goods for the 50’s 60’s and 70’s. You can read more about this house and it’s owners over at The Design Files.
The Modernist home of Knud Holscher was captured beautifully by NOWNESS. Generally speaking, when we look at great modernist architecture we mostly see images of the buildings and maybe we see people in the spaces. NOWNESS takes us one step further as we can experience the creator living in the space and seeing how he interacts with the elements designed. The house itself is stunning, I love how one end is completely glass giving the interiors constant light. I was lao intrigued by the flight of stairs he walks down, they are so minimal and understated.
The Herne Bay House by Stevens Lawson Architects has some outstanding architectural elements. The three diminutional triangle pattern is one of the coolest designs I have seen applied to a private residence. I also like the smaller horizontal stacked brick found on the interiors and exteriors. The massive black pivoting door is a nice touch. Some day I need to visit New Zealand.
The Erby House by Devine Erby Mazlin located in Sydney Australia is a rare gem. Built in 1971 the home retains most of its mid century design charm. I like the horizontal running wood on the interiors, it almost acts like a guide showing one “around the house”. Not to sound negative what so ever but I do think there is one too many textures going on: brick, wood walls different wood ceilings and the wood built in cabinets with all three woods being different. There are more images, all of the details on the home, architect and area on Modern House.
Allens Rivulet House by Room 11 sits on a scenic slope in Tasmania. The wooded tunnel style entrance to the house is quote an amazing. The atrium or court yard is an element that I hope to have in my home some day. The feeling of the outside being in the middle of your home would be a dream design element. The choice of materials has lent the home it’s stunning color palette. I wonder if this is a faction or second home?
This minimal house by Dorrington Atcheson Architects is so clean lined. I have always been drawn to flat roofed houses that consisted of geometric box shaped levels. The floor plan of this house is so open, even the bedroom doors/walls open up to create larger living spaces. Even the shower with all of its walls of glass gives the feeling of now walls or boundaries.
