August 24, 2015

If I was  about to build a new house , the first thing to have into mind , would be a house of Saota Architects.That would be my ideal one because I totally identify with their style and I declare rapt by their architectural attitude. I noticed a minimal but glorious one in Architectural Digest, some years ago and since then they are my favourite. These talented people know exactly how to respect nature and to give prominence to its beauty by  prettifying other people’s lives with ideal residences all over the world. Clifton 2A home, in  Cape Town is one of  the most incredible samples of their art of creating and I’m happy to share it  with you…

Meet the OVD 919, an incredible Cape Town modern mansion by Saota

November 23, 2015

Cape Town-based architecture firm SAOTA, my favourite architectural team as I have already refered to recently here,   gave special architectural lessons some months ago,  by completed OVD 919, an incredible Cape Town modern mansion, positioned on the mountain ridge below Lion’s Head. Encapsulating the expansive 360-degree mountain and sea views, the architecture draws strength from the concrete finish used to create monumental forms which contrast to the copper roof. Limited to only two storeys above the ridge, the main living areas, pool terrace, and garden are below with the family bedrooms strategically positioned at the uppermost level for privacy. It’s really fantastic…! Continue Reading…

Michael Bay’s High-Style Hollywood Home

June 27, 2015

It is one the most Stylish House of Hollywood Hills. Feats of architectural derring-do have long had their place in the hills and canyons of Los Angeles, where gravity-defying midcentury landmarks such as John Lautner’s Sheats-Goldstein residence and Pierre Koenig’s Stahl House test the structural and aesthetic limits of cliffside living. New to that esteemed lineage is the recently completed home of Michael Bay, a filmmaker known for action-packed big-budget blockbusters like the Transformers series,Armageddon, and Pearl Harbor. From such a maestro of spectacular effects one might expect a place with more than just a hint of drama.

Cindy Crawford goes for nearly triple price on her 11-month Malibu home

June 21, 2015

Less than a year ago, supermodel Cindy Crawford and her husband, Rande Gerber, bought a dated rancher on an acre and a half in Malibu for $6 million. Conventional wisdom declared the 1958 house a teardown. But they must have decided its bones were good enough, because they decided to go the remodel route instead.

Just 11 months later, the house is already back on the market, with mostly the same numbers that were reported last year: current listing still says the house was built in 1958, and it still notes the exact same square footage — 3,651 — as last year’s listing. It still has 4 bedrooms and 4 (and a half) bathrooms. Continue Reading…

But the designs of this home do not cry out for more color or more art, instead the white spaces open the home and help to turn the people who live there, who entertain there, and who visit there, into the real focal point of the design.
