Instead of encroaching on an already limited backyard Thomas Balaban Architecte decided to give the modest home two rooftop volumes turning it into an elegant and spacious contemporary residence. Home to a young couple with three children the smart extension preserved and enhanced the small rear yard turning it into play area for kids and a relaxation zone for adults.
Throughout the home one finds a healthy blend of neutral backgrounds vivacious color brilliant artwork and an ambiance that combines casual design elements with a hint of urbane sophistication. Bespoke décor inviting outdoor areas and a lovely backyard complete this unpretentious yet brilliant Kansas City home.
It is easy to see the charm of this fabulous contemporary kitchen as it acts as a bridge between not just the interior and the backyard but also bridges styles that are separated by several hundred years!
Few inner city suburbs offer as much contrast in terms of the views on offer as in Brisbane Australia and designed to perfectly take advantage of this diversity is the Fifth Avenue home by O’Neill Architecture.
It is the top floor that contains the bedrooms and other private quarters even as the two pavilions are connected with one another through a cool central axis! Sweeping double-height living spaces luxurious bedrooms and iconic décor such as the Barcelona lounge chair and the Louis Ghost Chair complete this smashing Aussie home.
