THIS HOUSE! This mid century house designed in the late 60′s by Peter Foggo and David Thomas is simply stunning. I think this is my new favorite house but that may change next week. The structure feels as though it is floating. The construction of steel and glass is amazing. It sure doesn’t hurt that the current owners have such great taste in MCM furniture. The restoration on this home is flawless.
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.
While moving through tumblr I came across the Kieran Stump by BDDW. I like just about everything BDDW produces now including these wood stools. They look like small chess pieces with a little more character. I appreciate the diversity of shape and materials shown in these images. Could you image one in rosewood? I do like the design that has the small pointer legs and a pot belly roundness.
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!
