Case Inlet Residence by MW Works Architects

60 years after it’s creation it seems Philip Johnson’s glass house is still having a huge influence on the design of contemporary architecture, or so I thought upon viewing this beautiful riverside retreat built by MW Architects. Nestled into a forested slope along the eastern edge of the Case Inlet, the house has a stunning view of the Olympic mountains in western Washington. One of the highlights of this home …

Collection of Work from Dietrich | Untertrifaller Architects

When it comes to sharing architecture on the format I’ve been trying to stick to highlighting one project at a time, but this morning I simply couldn’t decide as there were so many beautiful builds from Detrich and Untertrifaller Architects that I wanted to share. In the end I compiled a set of ten images that really caught my eye which works as a compelling introduction into the style of work …

Mill Valley Cabins by Feldman Architecture

After what feels like days of internet digging I’ve finally unearthed a project of modern architecture that really resonated with me. Based in the Mill Valley, which is roughly 15 miles north of San Francisco, Feldman Architects have constructed this stunning duo of cabin homes which I’m sure many of you are going to enjoy. The collective is passionate about marrying building and surroundings into one seamless environment …

Lindau House by K-M Architektur

We visit rural Germany now through the understated home that K-M Architects have designed and built in the Hochbuch village of Lindau. This house simply feels inherently the way architecture should be in my opinion, free of clutter, an emphasis on the environment it surrounds itself in, and a careful consideration for the way the interior will be used on a daily basis. The simplicity of this home is absolutely bliss. A big high …

Mid Century Modern Imagery from Frederick Barr

I’ve quietly continued to get inspired by the mid-century era yet in recent times I’ve not brought anything across onto the blog in correspondence with this. Today I felt it was about time I stopped hoarding my sources of inspiration and shared them with you all, so here we are with a collection of photographs that Fredrick Barr has lovingly curated over on flickr, which I’m sure many of you are go …

Collector’s House by Andersson-Wise

At the moment I’m going through the idea phase of a new web design for this site, it’s been fun developing the one that we have now but ever since the addition of the shop I’ve had a strong interest in integrating the two a bit better. The goal is to sell more limited items which are design led, basically informed through the blog, in the store and do something creative/different with our aesthetic. Obviously we’ll be following the same sort of …

Coast Modern Film

We’ve been having a lot of fun lately searching up different pieces of architecture and reading lots of books about modernism in general. Obviously some of our favourites are past designers such as Mies van der Rohe, Le Corbusier, Eero Saarinen and the almighty Alvar Aalto. But obviously we’re not just restricted to what’s happened before us, there are plenty of great designers out there who’re producing some stunning residential architecture …

Short film on Ron Radziner and his home

I’ve been doing a little internet digging and I’ve come across this short film on the principal designer at Marmol Radziner which provides further context into the design of his own home. I was delighted to find this project as there doesn’t seem to be an abundance of films online featuring modern architects, especially those with a portfolio of this quality. Founded in 1989 Marmol Radziner is an ongoing collaboration between Leo Marmol and …

360 House by Subarquitectura

Apologies if you’ve come across this project before but this Madrid based build and it’s concept really intrigued me when browsing around today. The design of the 360 House, which was realised three years ago by Subarquiteura firm, is something I’ve not come across before, the house is looped back on itself offering the owner two directions in which to reach their desired destination within the home. It’s a really bold piece of architecture and one …

Villa Frenay by 70f Architects

We head to Holland now, Lelystad to be specific through the work of 70F architects and this minimalist Villa that their team built two years back. I can’t say I’ve come across their work previously but I really enjoyed this project all the same, browsing over their portfolio that spans twelve years back it would seem they often opt for a boxy exterior with large windows being the prominent feature of each build. The open plan interior was …

Ficalho House by John Cassian Santos

I don’t know if anyone has noticed within our format but I’ve slowly been trying to learn more about architects who operate in warmer climates. Previously I brought across work from Brazil and today we visit Portugal through this house by architect John Cassian Santos. The minimalistic home seen above and below is for the most part completely pure white and can be found in the hill top town of Sepra, where the majority of the …

Sycamore House by Aaron Neubert Architects

I’m completely in love with this Sycamore House by Aaron Neubert and his dedicated team of architects, it’s my favourite piece of modern residential architecture that I’ve come across in a long while. Ironically this is mainly because it’s been evolved from the 1950’s building which existing on the site and adapted to incorporate the hillside closer to the home. Throughout the house we see references to the mid-century modern …
