Time Out…

…we are heading west to Sonoma County, California.  We arrive at Hupomone Ranch and try our hand at sustainable farming and ranching…and, of course,  much enjoyment and camaraderie…

The site has a wonderful balanced quality to it, and the simple grounded form of the barn is situated to compliment this setting and capture the long views to the coastal range beyond…

The light-filled living area opens up to the long view south and gathers the bedrooms and kitchen to either side.  (Make sure you take note of the fab mirrored chest which promotes just the right sparkle)…

The kitchen has slide away windows that open directly to the garden…

I call dibs on this bedroom, oh alright, you can have it…but really, can this room be any more perfect…

The bathroom is “oh so right” with its star-jeweled light and picture-perfect view…

Life is good!  Kudos to Turnbull Griffin Haesloop Architects

Out of the Landscape…

…rising from the terrain, we find Reykjavik House…minimalist, inviting, and toasty…yes, toasty…

…the light from Reykjavik House calls one inside…

simplicity, the indigo view, and warm wood tones makes one comfortable and toasty…yes, toasty…can you feel the warmth?…

…a beautifully designed and substantial home to shield one from the elements…the genius of Moomoo Architects.

Take a Bow…

…baby boomers galore ponder a myriad of ways they would like to gracefully take their last bow on stage left and create a new vision for life on stage right.  A couple in their 60′s chose to trade busy city life for a restful life surrounded by nature in New Zealand.  They asked Hamish Monk Architecture to create their nirvana.  Waiatarua House is complete with exquisite modern furnishings, creative sculptural components, and a unique sensitivity for the bush area surrounding the property.

Let’s Go Into Town…

…I’ll be happy to say it…in my opinion, Pitsou Kedem Architect always gets it right.  Tel Aviv Townhouse 4 consists of mainly earthy and neutral tones that are expressed through both the structure and the furniture…with a pleasant dash of color.  I find this minimalist residence to be hypnotic…I want to experience every clean line…and the landscaping is simple yet magical.  This residence is situated behind a gated entrance, and is tucked between two unassuming apartment complexes…
