A Family House in Fulham

We recommend taking a good, hard look at this recently renovated 3000sf home in Fulham, UK. Designed and managed by the owner, Daniel Lee, the renovation of the 19th century structure landed on that sweet spot between simple and cozy. Note the sprawling kitchen, custom steel and glass walls, and handmade brass show fixture. See more at Remodelista.

Artists’ Rendezvous in Kanagawa

There’s not much that can go wrong when you combine the character of turn-of-the-century brick with contemporary Japanese design language. This certainly is the case for this renovation from architecture firm, No. 555. The project was conceived as an occasional work space for two transplanted design sisters, one from Hong Kong and one from LA, built from the ruins of the servants’ quarters of their childhood home. Gently modernized spaces with thoughtful accents make for a satisfyingly warm final product. Find the original article at Remodelista. Photography by Koichi Torimura.

Balance Found in LA

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.

Reimagining the Portuguese Farmhouse

Casa-dos-Caseiros-by-MArio-Ferreira-and-Sara-Antunes_dezeen_784_3

Sara Antunes and Mário Ferreira of Lisbon’s SAMF designed the Casa dos Caseiros, a caretakers residence in a vineyard region of Portugal. The design draws strongly from traditional farmhouse vernacular, but definitely pulls and stretches at our expectations. Iconic forms of white and tera cotta are emboldened by large swaths of blue woodwork, creating a recognizable but compelling space. For more, visit dezeen. Photos by José Campos.
