The B + W house in Minneapolis, MN, is an attention grabbing contemporary house featuring beautiful concrete-wood contrasts.
Australia is one of those lucky places where bad weather is usually not a big issue. Mark Austin and Andrew Maynard – Directors at Austin Maynard Architects – clearly took advantage of it, to design a contemporary modernist inspired house that had “just the right amount of space” for the young family it was built for.
Located on a family-owned winery in Yamhill County, it was designed by architects Lever Architecture in 2016 to serve as both a home and a space to host wine tasting sessions.
Situated in a mountainous region about 75km from São Paulo and representing a part the larger Campinas conurbation, this contemporary style vineyard/home actually feels anything but urban.
The Tree House takes its name from the giant protected Oak tree growing in the middle of the lot. In their brief to Architect Matt Fajkus, the clients asked to design a contemporary house around the tree as well as to enhance as much as possible the connection between inside and outside.
The property fits perfectly into its surrounding natural landscape.
Not only because of the floor-to-ceiling windows which flood the interior with sunlight, but also because of the perfectly preserved wood panelling covering almost every wall and ceiling.
Located in Balwyn Rd in Melbourne, Australia, the home is an original mid-century home designed in 1963 Godfrey, Spowers, Hughes, Mewton & Lobb, yet its current look is the outcome of a thoughtful renovation by Nest Architects.
Located in Oxford, California, this mid-century home was renovated and extended by Koch architects.
The first element that caught our attention was the recurrence of thin wood panels throughout the house. Positioned vertically and stained in a light brown polish, they provide a solid backdrop to a really nice interior.
We’ve seen it many times and know how difficult it is to bring back the original mid-century vibe of a house while making it comfortable, for modern standards. We believe that Forward Architecture did just that with this house. Read about the restoration process through the words of Mr. Fein.
Frank Lloyd Wright Houses
Marika and Tony weren’t initially looking to buy a Frank Lloyd Wright house. Instead, they were hunting for a waterfront cottage in a suitably quiet area.
However, as many of our other readers have experienced, it was love at first sight for the couple after their first viewing of the Eppstein House.
Built by Yunakov Architecture, this house is right out of the Frank Lloyd Wirght playbook: low-pitched roof, overhanging eaves, horizontal lines, a central chimney, an open floor plan and clerestory windows.
This home is quintessential Frank Lloyd Wright. It was built between 1958 and 1960 in Minneapolis for Paul C. Olfelt, and his family.
Ryan and his wife are the lucky owners of an apartment in one of this Eichler buildings in San Francisco. Initially attracted by its peculiar facade and minimalist look, Ryan tells us how they got to discover, and love, more about their building and Joseph Eichler’s work.
Amy and Sean were mid-century design collectors way before buying their Eichler, and now the circle is complete. Today, you can read more about their experience as mid-century house owners and how it has changed their lives.
The owners, of this recently renovated Eichler home in San Mateo Highlands, California, is a young couple with two small children.
They were particularly keen to preserve as much of the Eichler home’s original essence with an eye for minimalist aesthetics.
This Eichler was built on a larger scale than the typical Eichlers we’ve come to know and love.
Built on an H-plan, it is described as a “Super Eichler”.
