Historic Queen Anne Reimagined for Modern Times by John Lum Architecture. Lined along a row of Victorians and Edwardians, this San Francisco family of four, reimagined their Queen Anne for modern times. After living there for more than two years, they hired John Lum Architecture to transform their abode into a light-filled, functional space. Working closely with interior designer Amanda Teal and the owners, the team embarked on an extensive remodel and addition, adding square footage and rearranging the floor plan to meet the family’s 21st century needs.

David Barr Architects have recently completed a house in Claremont, Western Australia. This extension to a pre-war suburban house is generated by a series of brick volumes connected by discrete landscaped areas. A clear grid informs the new addition’s planning, with each of the main spaces (dining room, living room, bedroom) located separately.
Plett 6541+2 Residence was designed by SAOTA and is located in the coastal town of Plettenberg Bay on the famous Garden Route, South Africa. A penthouse floats over the main building enjoying 360° views. Generous indoor / outdoor living spaces and landscaped terraces have elevated garden living to the upper levels.
