Mid Century Architecture By Michael M. Inan

This mid century architecture was the work of Michael M. Inan built in 1973. The house should be on the market this week by www.modernhomesrealty.com. There are quite a few teaser images floating around and I was instantly captured by the structure and use of materials used in building this mid century dream. Technically, it was built in the 70’s but I am sure most of would live in it. The interiors look so well kept, I am sure there has been some renovation and keep up but overall, well done. I need to find a place like this in my area. 4 bedrooms and 4 baths and 3120 SQ FT is a nice big home. Read More


Architecture By Edward Greenway

Edward Greenway is responsible for this modern contemporary home that recently went through a renovation. The house is currently on the market in London. The interior volumes of this home were the first feature that caught my attention, they are so vast, they remind me of a church interior. The wood and brick on the ceilings and walls create a warm modern feeling. I like how the interiors are furnished in these photos, they don’t feel overdone and feel as though they belong. at 5,663.00 sq ft you could certainly house a nice collection. The exterior of the house was not what I was expecting to see but I appreciate how unique the structure is. Read More

Mid Century Architecture By Jean Fombertaux

This mid century architecture by Jean Fombertaux is a masterpiece in construction. The interior labyrinth is void of walls and makes for visual planes defining living spaces. Jean Fombertaux built this home for himself and has remained in the family until now. The home almost has a tree house feeling with all of the different living levels being open. The house nestled amongst all of those trees helps as well. The house was built in 1966 and was one of the first in the country with an expressed steel frame. Its cubed form of lines, flat panels of pre-cast concrete alternating with large glazed sections, takes cues from the minimal Modernists of Europe dovetailing. Read More

0-cylinder-house-by-Cyril-Lancelin-modular-residential-architecture-in-France-Lyon-exterior-rocks-forest-woodA pretty unusual house is to be built on the outskirts of Lyon, France – it will be composed of numerous cylinder-shaped glass modules. According to the author’s idea, this is an all-terrain type of housing, since cylinders can be arranged in any sequence depending on the characteristics of the terrain of every specific land plot.

How Scandinavian Countries Outshine The Gray By Architecture

It’s not a secret that city architecture has a crucial impact on our well-being. Researchers of the world keep saying that it’s scientifically proven that buildings must be painted in cheerful, positive colors to make us feel better. Urbanization influences our health in an extremely negative way in general, and our mental health suffers a lot as well. Read More


Cube Architecture Historic Town Of Sandwich

Cube Architecture completed this project last year close to the centre of the historic town of Sandwich in Kent. I typically don’t like to show houses that are empty but the structure of this house is outstanding. I like that the exterior of the house very different than the interior of the house. The strut or support structure in the main room is such a beautiful architectural element. The fireplace floating in the middle of the room is also a great piece. The kitchen is nice and understated but who has volcanic stone-veneer cabinets, I would like those. The cabinets come from a German company named Hacker. The color palette for this home is wonderfully natural and would accommodate just about any style. I would certainly have to fill it with mid century with a little eclectic on the side. Read More


Midcentury Modern Remodel By Klopf Architecture

This Midcentury Modern Remodel in San Carlos California by Klopf Architecture was just finished. It would have been great to see the before pictures but as they described it, it was a mess. The windows were all boarded up and it was dark and cramped. I commend the vision that these people had to make this transformation. Maybe the house wan’t that significant architecturally but the remodel doesn’t read mid century to me and thats ok. I have come across other mid century remodels and the house was too contemporary for my liking. At this point I would almost just say that this is contemporary architecture and its good. Knopf has always done a fantastic job with their projects. I do love the Kitchen and the open sliding windows on the back of the house. Read More
