New York has green Central Park, skyscrapers, roof terraces and spectacular views of Manhattan, Brooklyn and Chinatown. This is the metropolitan atmosphere investors wanted to create in their 135-meter apartment. The Warsaw apartment was supposed to be unconventional, sublime, unpretentious. In the apartment designed by Katarzyna Kraszewska the modern harmony merges with tradition, whereas art and functionality create an extremely harmonious duo. The architect focused on the light and the phenomenal view outside the window. But the apartment itself is also pretty impressive. Photography by Tom Kurek
Olinda House designed by BENT Architecture is the result of a love story between the owners and their site.

Franklin Street is a project designed by Michael Hennessey Architecture. This two-unit residential building proposes an alternate organization of conventional building strategies found throughout San Francisco. At the front elevation, a modern bay window is employed, contributing to the scale and rhythm of the more traditional bay windows found on this street. Floor-to-ceiling glass and a minimal butt-glazed corner gives direction to the bay window towards a view of the Golden Gate Bridge, as well as, maximizing natural daylight within the living spaces of both residences. In addition, the front elevation contains small horizontal porcelain tiles at the front elevation to relate to the proportions of the surrounding brick facades of neighboring buildings.

Designed for a couple of empty-nesters on a modest budget, the home’s contemporary aesthetic is balanced by the desire to respect the scale of the existing neighborhood.

Orleans Harbour is a project designed by Dick Clark + Associates. After living in their Lake Austin fronted condo for over 10 years, the homeowners wanted a dramatic departure from what they had – a traditional, segregated and enclosed plan with French country furniture and lots of color.
