By looking at this modern family residence in Fitzroy, Australia, you would never imagine that it once was a horse stables back in the 1830s. The renovation by Andrew Simpson Architects is quite astonishing: they led the project of converting the historic building into a high tech and environmentally sustainable home to meet their clients’ needs.
They named the project ‘Cloud 9’, making reference to the 1896 International Cloud-Atlas in which cloud No. 9 was the biggest, puffiest and most comfortable-looking. The kitchen, which is really beyond belief, is literally the heart of this home where all the living spaces converge into a central area.
Perched high in the forests of Pustertal in Italy, the San Lorenzo Mountain Lodge is a rustic log cabin with modern flair. The historic hunting lodge, which dates all the way back to the 1500s, has been fully restored from its knotty wood floors to the lime-finished masonry walls. Oh just take me there please !!!!
