Record House Revisited

February 2nd, 2011

The simplicity and perfect walnut woodwork that David Jameson Architects designed into this refurbished home is really well done. The house was built in the 60s and revisited in 2010.

Ribbon House by G2 Estudio

January 31st, 2011

This house is a fortress. It was designed by G2 Estudio for two families from Tahiti- French Polynesia. The house was intended as a holiday house and is located in San Carlos de Bariloche, Argentinean Patagonia. Space seems to not be an issue inside—the interior is open between the floorings making it feel vast.

There is a very warming juxtaposition of materials in use, which just happens to be my favorite combination: wood and concrete. The interior images after the jump show just how stunning this combination can be. You can bet my future house will utilize both wood and concrete to the teeth.

The Interiors of Mid-Century Modern

January 4th, 2011

This second set of mid-century interiors also comes from a great collection via Flickr. Everyone of these interiors is just stunning. In the past I’ve said numerous times of how wonderful it feels to look back at this older design to see just how much of an influence it was on the present.

The Chairs of Mid-Century Modern

January 3rd, 2011

It’s a new year and along with it comes a remarkable collection via Flickr from one my most-favorable categories: Mid-century Modern. These chairs come from the 50s, 60s, and 70s; while some lived on, a number fell by the wayside for obvious reasons.

Some of my favorites in this collection include the iconic Eero Aarnio Ball chair, Eames Molded Plywood chair and of course the Eames Lounge chair.

Which chair is your favorite?

The Office of Facebook

November 30th, 2010

If you’ve seen The Social Network then these images of Facebook’s headquarters may be for you. The goal that the firm Facebook had hired—Studio O+A—was to bring the 700+ employees together into a 150,000 square-foot space in Palo Alto’s Stanford Research Park.

The new facility maintained the buildings history and industrial look while embracing each employee division’s unique identity. Employees are encouraged to write on the walls, add artwork and move furniture where they need it so that it allows the office to continuously evolve and still maintain its fun atmosphere—much like Facebook itself.

KASCH In-Floor Bathtubs

October 27th, 2010

KASCH is the creator behind these luxurious and very relaxing looking in-floor bathtubs. Although they look a lot like jacuzzis, these bathtubs would be the perfect indoor compliment to an infinity edge pool.

Surprisingly this is the first time I’ve seen bathtubs integrated with the interior design so well. I wouldn’t be surprised if these in-floor tubs start showing up in houses more often.

Unstudio Loft

October 14th, 2010

UNStudio Loft may be all too pure for my modern-living taste, but I do really enjoy the efforts of designing the curved walls and wood flooring. It also enlightening to see an Eames Lounger in white leather instead of black. The loft is located in Greenwich Village and overlooks downtown Manhattan (New York).

Modern Stockholm Residence

October 11th, 2010

Modernism is at its best with this living space. Limestone, concrete, glass and steel provide a complimentary contrast to the landscape while it sits atop the beautiful Swedish rock outcrop. The architect John Robert Nilsson designed the home to look West to maximize the amount of light inside throughout the day.

The infinity edge pool and hot tub fit so smoothly into the concrete at the foundation’s edge without hindering the rest of the design. Some parts of the house that aren’t in the pictures above are an outdoor fireplace, three private bedrooms, three bathrooms, and storage. The house must be larger than it looks. Anyone want to take a stab at the price?

Selgas Cano Office

October 4th, 2010

It’s always cool to see interesting architecture warming the atmosphere of the creator. In this case the architectural firm, Selgas Cano built their modern office space inset into the ground. The office is located in suburban forest near or around Madrid, Spain.

The office puts you below ground level and makes you feel as if you’re deep into the woods. The glass cover lets you look up and out at anytime. This would probably make working rainy days or late nights in the low light, very relaxing. Especially when looking up at the stars through the glass.

Secret Island Residence

September 14th, 2010

Miller Hull designed this secret dream home to become one with nature. The trees shadowing around the house are 75-100 foot tall Douglas Firs. Leaving uninterrupted westward views of the Puget sound and Olympic Mountains.

It’s really nice to see that the lumber used in the house was actually salvaged from a shipwreck in 1921. It was planed into large 19″ x 19″ beams that formed the main living rooms. Each section of the house was specifically designed for the needs of the room. To top all of it off, there is a wooden trestle elevated 14 feet off of the ground that goes back into the forest. At the end of the trestle there is a hot tub on a platform.

Mid-Century Interior Design Flashback

September 10th, 2010

The Flashback group on Flickr has one of the best collections of vintage goodies from the 50s, 60s and 70s. Some of the interiors that I found are really outstanding. Particularly the ones that look really modern—modern to today. It’s amazing how organic the design was as well.

Brentwood Residence

August 18th, 2010

The Brentwood Residence is really contemporary design at its finest. Beautiful wood siding, wooden doors, cabinets, floors, cement floors and walkways—the list goes on. What really excites me about this house is the large, open living area. The sliding glass door is the only thing temporarily keeping you from enjoying the summer breeze. I could see myself enjoying a lot of time right off the deck under the roof overhang while it rains.

The architect behind this recently finished home is Cory Buckner. She is based out of Los Angeles and runs her own firm specializing in residential design and mid-century remodel and restoration projects.
