This modern kitchen renovation by WORKSTEAD is not just a kitchen renovation but those cabinets! I have featured WORKSTEAD before but this project must be newer. Make sure to take a look through their portfolio as they have some amazing cabinet designs and these are no exception. If someone described this kitchen to me I may not be so keen on it but to look at it is another thing. The colors and design is warm, modern and unique.
This mid century revival near Stoke Poges is a beautiful example of iconic mid century architecture. Unfortunately the architect is unknown, The house was originally designed for a pharmaceuticals executive and his American wife, the house was designed to replicate a home that they owned in Malibu, California, which is the last image or sketch. The impressive beams run all the way through the house, almost like a rib webwork. I like the low slung flat roofed house with its minimal approach.
The K-1 stationery kit designed by Maxim Scherbakov. K-1 means “Konstruktor-1″. The name was inspired by Soviet construction toys. I like that a toy can also create a functional pieces of organization for your desktop. In a way I see them as logos for big kids. This idea has so many possibilities with so many material choices. I do know that if I had one of these on my desk it could be some what of a distraction. It would be cool to make a different structure everyday for a year and then make a movie from it.
This mid century renovation in Melbourne originally designed by Linton Reynolds of Woodfull & Reynolds in 1963 has been kept relatively true to form. I get excited when I see homes like this because they have stood the test of time. All they need is little attention and love and they will last another test. The courtyard is one of my favorite design elements of mid century architecture. The clear story windows do a great job at letting light fill the interior spaces. I have to say it but I think I would have gone with another wood in the kitchen besides oak but just my personal taste.
These modern bespoke Kitchens by Jack Trench are precise and beautiful. To plan, design and build a kitchen is way out of my realm of approach. Not only does Jack Trench create stunning kitchens but you will see some other rooms with custom work. I appreciate the minimal design that is happening in a room with a lot of moving parts. Kitchens can get busy very quickly and it feels like Jack understands and controls the “overages”. The kitchen in the third picture has some cabinets the wrap around the corner, I haven’t seen that before.
Wolveridge Architects has a great body of work but the Torquay House stood out to me. The combination of materials on the exterior are what first grabbed my eyes. Maybe it is just stucco but reminds me of concrete and the vertical wood slats work so well together. The landscaping being as minimal as it is really lets the structure stand out. The pool looks quite inviting, would be good right about now with all of the heat going on around my neck of the woods.
