Invermay House by Moloney Architecture

The Invermay House by Moloney Architecture is a beautiful geometric house full of amazing materials. The “wood boxes” counter positioned with the “concrete boxes” make for a dynamic family home. The fire place is a focal point in the family room with its custom wood holder base. The cantilevers on the house push past the cubes creating another dramatic visual plane. The bathroom is so minimal and modern.

Energy Star modern home

This Energy Star modern home was found while I was snooping around ModernCharlotte.com. It ought my attention for its clean design but also that it appears to be a grouping of similar homes or small condos. I have always loved the idea of doing a community of new modern homes. I like that these don’t look “contemporary” or “oh look we aded some more windows and slanted the roof”, they almost have a international feel. Designed by Liquid Design the home is Energy Star and is NC Healthy Built certified and uses 38% less energy than average homes.

Mid Century Los Feliz CA

This Mid Century Los Feliz home has past been sold but I came across the listing and really liked the updates that were done. The architect was not listed but the house was built in the 60’s. What ever was done in the kitchen looks great, I can’t tell if those are the original cabinets or not. The entrance to the house, AMAZING! The entrance with its orange doors make for a grand hello when entering the house. Maybe we all would have different choices on the furnishings but I think they did a great job on the remodel. Oh, and I like the repurposed credenzas in the bathrooms.

EG House by Play Arquitetura

The EG House by Play Arquitetura is an amazing mix of concrete and glass. The structure of the two long boxes stacked in opposite directions make for a dramatic dream house. If I lived there I sure wouldn’t complain about the views, especially with all of that deck space. The owners have amazing taste in furniture and design.

Modern 70s bungalow

This Modern 70s bungalow built by Eduard Neuenschwander outside Zurich is still relevant today. We don’t get to see much of the outside of the house but the inside is great. The collection of furniture and art is something I could look at all day long. The skylight portholes are unique and add a dynamic with light and shape. I have always been a sucker for white painted brick walls.

Case Study House 26 Harrison House

Maybe you have already seen Case Study House 26 or the Harrison House designed by Beverley David Thorne. The house was sponsored as a demonstration project by Bethlehem Steel Company and Twentieth Century Homes in 1962-1963. Harrison House is the only Case Study house in Norther California. I can’t believe the openness of this home, the views to the outside just go on forever. The steel structure is my favorite element of this house, maybe because it isn’t all that common. Maybe because it is more permanent? The house is currently on the market.
