The result of a collaboration between design firms BLDG Workshop and 608 Design, The Bunkie Company now produces four different models of pre-fab flexible-use buildings. Each has a 106sf footprint, therefore not requiring a building permit, and range in cost from just shy of $21,900 to $29,900. All those details aside, the satisfying use of natural wood and the abundance of glass, make the structure stand out from the pre-fab pack.

Self-renovated by the Japan-born owners – fashion designers Momo Suzuki and Alexander Yamaguchi – this LA bungalow nestles neatly somewhere between Japanese and Scandinavian influences. Alexander also brings with him a special fondness for eBay-sourced mid-century furniture. The couple approached the project with a light touch, using the existing features to their fullest potential. Existing kitchen wall cabinets were raised to create the feel of more space, original oak floors were simply refinished, and windows outfitted with brass hardware. And the surgically styled collection of furniture and ceramics doesn’t hurt either. For more, visit Remodelista.
We were recently turned onto fabric designer, native Cape Cod-er, and fellow RISD grad, Rebecca Atwood. Atwood’s sensitivity to the material and playful interpretation of natural patterns – like stones, shells, and water – leaves a lasting impression; especially being a long-time friend of the Cape myself.

We can thank Melbourne-based interior designer Hecker Guthrie for the warm minimalism of this apartment in Melbourne’s Carlton neighborhood. Plenty of art and greenery against a bright white backdrop is a pretty solid guiding principle, and it certainly proves effective here.
