…where this building, rustic and of unique workmanship, is located?  Made of raw concrete and stone, what is the function of this space?  Both questions will be answered a little later today…until then…let your imagination run wild…

Prebuilt…

…prebuilt, really?  Simply amazing.  Pleysier Perkins Architects in Melbourne, Australia, created a killer space…designed and constructed in Melbourne and delivered to Sydney on four trucks, includes four bedrooms, a study, and a double height sitting room.  The kitchen is large and there is a separate dining area.  The concrete landscape elements act as a plinth for the lightweight prefrabricated structure and the long slot windows provide classic Sydney water glimpses…prebuilt with One Up Building; the Sydney Prebuilt

A New Skin…

Green roofs and black stained Accoya wooden planks make up the new skin around this unique redevelopment.  Villa Rotterdam by OOZE Architects refers to “traditional Dutch farms, providing a sense of consistency and coherence and there is no better fit for this project other than Rotterdam’s green neighbourhood.  The aim of the young architectural firm was to engage in a process of rediscovering the future through preserving ‘the soul of the house’ in the most sustainable way possible.” Love this villa, OOZE Architects…

Really…

…have you ever?  More like a zen dojo than a medical facility, Dentist Clinic by UID, will calm the most anxiety-ridden dental patient.  The Dentist Clinic is located in Fukuyama, Hiroshima, and was built entirely of wood.

Hello lovely cabbagerose readers! It is my greatest pleasure to guest post on cabbagerose today and I am so excited to share with you a very special project, the home of the great furniture designer John Houshmand in San Miguel de Allende. With the help of architect David Howell, the home stays true to Houshmand’s purpose, completely reflecting the personality of his work; unique, pure, sincere and emotional.
Please enjoy!

Howell’s dwelling centers on a courtyard, inhabited by a square concrete fountain and a pair of ancient mesquite trees original to the property. The exterior walls, made of plaster, were tinted to match the reddish stones that dominate the surroundinglandscape. The entire structure was built by hand without electricity. Instead, local craftsmen used water, an attribute to their artistry.

The master bath and lounge with custom cast-in place concrete vanity and tub. Vintage sofas surround a custom live edge maple table by the Houshmand.

A guest room with Houshmand’s custom bed and maple headboard. The windows are dressed with warm burnt sienna cotton curtains and neutral sheers enhancing the warmth and living quality of the wood Houshmand pieces.

A guest bathroom with a carved stone sheep’s trough as the sink.

The living room with a pair of Houshmand’s cherry sofas and a maple table nesting on a locally made cotton flat-weave.

Another guest room with a headboard made from two mesquite doors.

I leave you here, in the rooftop pavilion, to enjoy the rest of the day!

Guest Post: La Boheme

Today, I am excited to introduce you to my friend, Anna, from La Boheme.  Anna is a designer passionate about interiors, architecture, fashion, photography, graphics and all forms of innovation.  Believe me when I say daily inspiration abounds at La Boheme.  A must-read blog…

Hello! I’m so happy to be here on cabbagerose today. Katherine has become a very close friend in the past couple of years and it’s a real treat to be part of her fantastic blog.

Since summer is in a full swing, I have decided to take you on a little getaway, where we explore a variety of swimming pool settings. Each one has unique quality and I do hope you find them inspiring. Enjoy.

First two are a match made in paradise – water surrounded by trees and just enough privacy.

The next pair is a special one – great architecture, minimal yet inviting form in both.

Now for these – perhaps sometimes you don’t want to swim. One foot dip then might be what the doctor ordered.

And the last combination – a completely unique experience, don’t you think?
