One site I’ve recently added to my feed reader is Design Milk. I particularly like their showcase of some modern architecture, and the 33rd Street Residence postÂ caught my eye.
Designed by Rockefeller Partners, the home is located in a densely populated area, near the water. It was designed to evoke a south-east Asian ambiance, with the top floor dedicated to views of the Pacific Ocean. I particularly liked the materials (mainly the look) and a layout that makes sense, given the space available. I also like how indoor and outdoor flows together in the design. A central courtyard is all the space dedicated to a yard of sorts, given that the lot size makes a real lawn of any sort impractical to achieve.
I am intrigued by the use of the property area and a differentiated design in its surroundings.
