Bridgehampton-based design studio Stelle Architects has designed the House by the Pond project. The luxury two-storey property can be found in Water Mill, New York, USA. According to the architects: “The overall design of the contemporary New York house was a direct response to an array of environmental regulations, site constraints, solar orientation and specific programmatic requirements. “The strategy was to locate a two-storey volume that contained all of the bedrooms and baths, running north/south, along the western side of the site. An open, lofty, single storey pavilion, separated by an interstitial space comprised of two large glass pivot doors, was located parallel to the street.

Barcelona-based design studio OAB has completed the AA House project. Completed in 2010, this contemporary property can be found in Barcelona, Spain. According to the architects: “The design scheme for the contemporary Spanish property responds to simple geometric rules. “The footprint of the building uses a superimposed 7×7 meter skewed grid to support the property in a composition similar to a musical score.

To make spaces feel bigger, more functional, to be light filled, and to visually extend and borrow from within and beyond the site. “The contemporary Melbourne property is not only about a coloured front door but the experience of what’s beyond … Continue reading Contemporary Shakin Stevens House, Melbourne
Melbourne-based design studio Steve Domoney Architecture has designed the Power Street Residence. The single-storey contemporary home can be found in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. According to the architects: “This established contemporary Melbourne home had previously undergone renovation with rear additions providing family living, dining and kitchen spaces. These regrettably fell short of providing an agreeable layout and flow for the family, being awkward in configuration, somewhat confined in height and lacking in good natural light. A complete rethink of this space and its relationship to its garden setting was called for. It was agreed the best remedy would be to start afresh whilst generally keeping to the existing envelope so as not to diminish the available garden … Continue reading Contemporary Power Street Property, Melbourne, Australia
