Prahran Townhouse by Doherty Design Studio

Prahran-Townhouse-Doherty-Design-Studio-1

This cute two-storey single-fronted townhouse in Prahran, Melbourne, has been designed by  Doherty Design Studio.  Doherty Design have successfully re-configured the interior to bring the courtyard into the new decade while also incorporating new furnishings and artwork to modernise the home.
Re-orientatating the kitchen, revamping the bathrooms and adding a new staircase were the main priorities for the owners. With the internal courtyard providing natural light to the kitchen and meal area while also creating an outlook for the first floor bedrooms, it was important that the courtyard compliment the interior scheme as well as provide an enticing slice of outdoor living in the built up urban landscape.

Widawscy Studio Architektury have recently completed the design of D47, an apartment in Myslowice, Poland. This apartment is so much fun and full of colours and patterns that every corner you’re looking at you’ll find something that will catch your eye.
I love the wallpaper in the kitchen and the playful tile wall in the staircase.

The art wall with the owners pictures (I believe) give this dining room such a homy feeling.

Modern Apartment in Taipei, Taiwan by LCGA Design

Tamsui-006

LCGA Design designed this fabulous modern apartment recently with a colour scheme of grey and orange as the main colour.

“This case locates at the area of Tamsui River with good daylight and visible view of riverside. There are double living rooms and three bathing areas in the original pattern plan and large public space. Duo to the foreign living experience of the owner who used to take single storage room to replace the castle with the plan of the space cleaned up. Because the living function was focused in public area, the owner hopes that the clothes and jewelry could be placed in individual space. Thus the designer removed the original wall and changed the scale of the partition wall on the floor plan. The mistress hopes us to combine the dressing room and the living room to an area. And we make the public area to a rectangle.

Townhouse in Landskrona, Sweden by Elding Oscarson

Townhouse-Landskrona-Sweden-Elding-Oscarson

Swedish architects Elding Oscarson have designed a townhouse in Landskrona, Sweden.

The narrow site is sandwiched between very old neighboring buildings in Landskrona, Sweden. Since mid 20th century it has been empty, waiting behind a wooden fence. It is only 5 meters wide with a tiny area of 75 square meters. Immediately adjacent buildings are low, but the street is lined with buildings of various height, size, facade material, age, and approach. Behind the row of buildings is a colorful world of back yards, brick walls, sheds, and vegetation. We find this small-scale, motely, naturally worn place extremely beautiful.

Dean Wolf Architects combine new construction with an old building structure to design a magnificent townhouse in the heart of Tribeca, New York City.

“The Inverted Warehouse/Townhouse is an addition and renovation of a Tribeca loft building. The existing structure, a traditional New York warehouse covers the entire lot, consuming the exterior space traditional in domestic construction. Inverting the conventional townhouse organization recovers this coveted ground. Dissipating energy into the dark center of this converted warehouse, three double story voids animate the missing “garden” of the townhouse providing light, air, and visual contemplation.

Ben Herzog architect renovated this beautiful Brooklyn townhouse with special pool and deck roof top .

“This townhouse underwent a fairly extensive renovation. We added a new stair bulkhead to the roof and a roof deck with embedded lights, removed a 2-story portion of the rear structural wall and replaced it with glass and aluminum panels, relocated the ‘cellar’ stairs from the front of the house to the back, added two gas fireplaces, removed the boiler and insulated the house completely so that heat can now be provided by highly-efficient heat pump units with no central mechanical room. The owners sourced and selected many of the materials including the beautiful cement tiles”.
