La Quinta

Posted on Sun, 21 Apr 2019 by KiM

Because I can’t get Mexico out of my head, I thought I would share a bit of it with you today via this home designed by (Pérez Palacios Arquitectos Asociados). Located in San Miguel de Allende, this weekend residence is minimal, filled with natural elements and is an absolute dream.

“A rear extension consists of timber and cement sheet cladding, which is given nuance through minor alterations to its simple form: a curved corner softens the entry experience, a folded line of north-facing glazing provides a functional eave, and glazing is located to moderate light and frame views. Inside, generous living spaces are conducive to casual family life. Different living zones are created through gentle interventions: gentle light on entry shifts to a bright double-height family room, changes in material create warmth, and small nooks are suited to impromptu reading and resting.”

Modern and moody

A contemporary addition to a grand Victorian house is a moody, sleek and sophisticated cave. But before you think heavy and dark walls of glass draw your eyes to lush garden courtyard spaces while allowing light in. Malvern House by Melbourne-based architectural studio .

Warehouse stalking

Posted on Mon, 11 Mar 2019 by midcenturyjo

I’m stalking warehouse living in the Sydney suburb of Annandale. Exposed brick walls, concrete floors, exposed beams and industrial walls of glass. What else could you want in your perfect warehouse? Stylish contemporary kitchen, private and public spaces and a seamless connection between indoors and out. Link while it lasts.

Stalking 2

Posted on Tue, 5 Mar 2019 by midcenturyjo

I’m still stalking in Sydney. I’ve moved one suburb over to Redfern where the new house  shares many things in common with my last stalking property. Concrete and wood, narrow and rising over several levels, modern but in this case a relatively new build as opposed to a terrace house gut and renovation. I’m torn between the two. I’m leaning more towards this house as it seems to have mellowed. Perhaps there’s more golden timber tones and a peek or two of softening greenery. Then again the Surry Hills house had those soaring ceilings and statement fireplace. Which do you prefer? Link while it lasts.
