Drawing upon the site’s architectural period and surrounding bushland, Wahroonga House is an example of mid-century modern design, referencing the warmth and playfulness of Palm Springs balanced with a laid-back sense of sophistication. Evoking a strong connection to the mid-century residential architecture of Palm Springs, the sinuous flow from exterior to interior induces an earthy interior balanced by the site’s laid-back Australian modernist architecture.
A playful yet sophisticated use of colour. A thoughtful consideration of details and modern interpretation of mid-century residential architecture.
This 530 sq m contemporary home was designed for an empty-nester couple who wanted to create a welcoming home.
They didn’t want a formal home with traditional spaces; they wanted open, fluid spaces that could accommodate different types of gatherings.
The eat-in kitchen is the hub of the home, it connects to the dining area. Since they host many events, the table in the kitchen and in the dining area can connect to create an expansive table that seats 32.
A neutral and minimal palette that has evoked the sense of a gallery; a home for entertaining.
Located in the Old City of Suzhou, adjoining the UNESCO-listed 17-century Couple Garden, the context of villa Smriti Curtilage has retained many traces of the city’s rich history. The Couple garden symbolizes an inclusive relationship, which brings inspiration to the design of the villa Smriti Curtilage. For designers, the villa Smriti Curtilage represents a unique opportunity to blend nature, architecture, art, object and people with different backgrounds into a unified order.
The shrine detailing and overall vision is phenomenal and very well executed, I especially enjoyed the oculus looking down onto the sculpture in the middle.
