The famous Australian photographic artist, Marian Drew, wanted a house in which she and her family could enjoy their weekends, and felt a construction derived from the concept of a luxury campsite would fit the bill. The unique holiday home was designed by Simon Laws of Anthill Constructions, and is located on the Queensland coast amongst mature Bloodwoods and Cabbage Palms, in the town of Seventeen Seventy. The living and sleeping pods, and the bath house, of the Drew House were built and fully completed in Brisbane, and transported across 500km to the chosen site. The prefabricated sweeping roof structure that covers the outdoor connecting core–consisting of an alfresco dining and living area–was erected onsite along with the adjoining decks.
The masterminds behind this cute, little apartment in Poznan, Poland, are mode:lina, a Polish architecture firm that was inspired to create an apartment for guests visiting the city for the Poznan International Fair. As a result, they ended up with an apartment that combines elements reminiscent of the accommodating design fixtures of a hotel and the cozy environment of someone’s actual apartment. The designers also gave themselves an additional challenge – to use affordable, replaceable furniture. They turned to IKEA, which added to the uncomplicated, understated tone of the apartment.
These smooth renders, by Anton Valiev, depict an apartment in St.Petersburg awash with a soft neutral palette and a pristine traditional finish. In the master bedroom suite, feminine fleur-de-lis wallpaper in powder blue freshens cream furniture and trims, along with matching blue bedcover and sofa accent cushions, to tie the whole scheme together from top to toe. The ornate decadence continues across the ceiling with a duo of shaded chandeliers for a cozy glow. A masculine themed den-cum-study complete with Chesterfield sofa, muted plaid wallcovering, roaring fireplace, and artwork pertaining to world travel and adventure, evokes the secrecy of an old-world gentlemen’s lodge. Shades of taupe cover the second bedroom, and are lifted by the introduction of wall pattern, and two-tone furniture. The head of the bed is swathed with a romantic canopy, echoing the sheer window dressing and adding further luxury to the scheme. White painted kitchen cabinets continue the elegant traditional look of the home design whilst still housing all of the required mod cons like an integrated chrome coffee maker. Wall paneling is picked out in cream to brighten the biscuit tone walls and curtains. Even a cloakroom is given a statement look in more of the striking plaid pattern, which compliments the deep wood tones and classic style of sanitary ware. Classic furniture fills a lavish master bathroom suite, taking the decor back to a bygone era, whilst the mirror shine of chrome fixtures and fittings brings a freshness, and prevents the décor from appearing outdated.
This castle style residence, complete with a huge beautiful surrounding moat, is the work of renowned architect Charles Sieger, of The Sieger Suarez Group.
