Safari Loft byArch11
A collaboration with interior designer Petra Richards, this downtown urban loft remodel ranges in texture from rough and gritty to smooth and refined. The owner, a single mom and entrepreneur (and Porsche racer) wanted a space that her grown daughters could visit that combined rich materials with light, open spaces. Further, she wanted a contrast of rough industrial finishes coupled with softer more refined touches; the distressed plaster wall in the living room picks up the tones of the blued steel fireplace surround. To better use the existing space a walk-in closet and hallway were converted into a library/guest room with adjoining ¾ bath.

Striking geometrical lines have been used to dramatic effect for the modern extension of this old home on the Ballast Point Peninsula in Sydney. The brief for Fox Johnston Architects was to create more room for a family of four, with separate living and sleeping quarters so the adults could entertain while the young children were sleeping. Also, a challenge amply met was the desire to let in more sun. In the words of the architects, “The final design was a total shift in thought, a single storey wing housing the living spaces is inserted into the rear, embracing a central courtyard and glimpsing the city beyond. A permeable bridge floats over an elongated pond and connects old and new. This new ‘living’ wing provides separation from sleeping spaces in the old shell – its roof manipulated to allow northern light to penetrate the space.”

Stockholm Attic Apartment: Presenting Quirky Architecture
Located in Stockholm, this clear white apartment is full of attractive architectural quirks. The first shoot is the steep slopes of the attic walls that rise to the high ceiling. The steep slopes are cut away to allow the sunlight pours through the large windows into the shiny house. If you look at the white living room daybed chaise, you will notice that the eyes are flooded with multicolored sprinkling of rugs and cushions whilst the sloping ceilings are lifted in white. If you look at the white and red Fornasetti faces wallpaper by Teme e Variazoni from Cole & Son, you will agree that the tallest wall on the central part of the dwelling have been added something decorative. Decorating the tallest wall in the attic area, the faces draw the room proportion upwards, against the sensation that the space closes in.
