Two modern homes in the Los Angeles area.

If you ever need a Realtor in the Los Angeles Los Feliz area you may want to look up Michael Locke. I have posted about his pictures and listings before and just recently some others came up that were pretty nice. Michael gave me permission to share these. The first house is the William A. Leone Residence, William A. Leone c.1959. This home is quite a stunner, you can READ MORE here. The second house is the Hiram Kwan Residence, James Stevens c.1977 and you can READ MORE here. If you have a Flickr account it wouldn’t hurt to follow Michael. He doesn’t always post modern but when he does it is amazing.

Modern office space by Clare Cousins Architects

It has been a while since my last modern office space posting but the Blackwood Street Bunker project by Clare Cousins Architects caught my attention. The one design element that stood out to me was the use of plywood as the ceiling tiles. Most drop down ceilings have that plain white what ever it is. There is a very industrial feeling found throughout these interiors. Concrete floors, good amount of plywood and cinder blocks create a nice industrial feeling.

Modern home on Orcas Island by Gary Gladwish

This modern home on Orcas Island by Gary Gladwish was one’s forty year dream. I love the house but the story is just as nice. The owner visited the site forty years earlier, only to return and build this stunner. The mix of black, white and rust on the exterior is just perfect. The front pivoting door is such a great design element. The view is only expanded with how the house opens to the landscape. What a serene place to live, I couldn’t image.

Contemporary designs by Roderick Vos

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.

Modern expansion by Pendal and Neille

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 – NOWNESS

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.
