The Sea Facing Penthouse in Mumbai

 architecture

Indian studio Abraham John Architects designed the Sea Facing Penthouse in the busy city of Mumbai.

 architecture

Old timber decking gives it a maritime feeling.

 architecture

The bedroom looks straight out to sea, bypassing the bright lights of the city to the right.

 architecture

The decking, the trellis and the tree impart a casual beach-y ambience that belies its big city location.

 architecture

The palette is muscular and consistent throughout.

 architecture

The severe residence relies on a stark decor of dark tropical woods and white walls.

 architecture

This stark dark brown and white is very effective in the bathroom palette as well.

 architecture
A bachelor’s pad, I’m guessing…

Witty Charm of a Shanghai Boutique Hotel in a 1930s Warehouse

 architecture

In the entrance to this cutting-edge boutique hotel, the original’s rough edges remain; worn stone flooring and old concrete walls.

 architecture

The Waterhouse at South Bund by Neri & Hu  in Shanghai, China is a chic renovation of an industrial warehouse from the 1930s.

1 architecture

The dockyards neighborhood of the historic warehouse district remains outside.

 architecture

A brisk new concrete counter keeps a stiff upper lip, and an ironic chandelier poses an amusing contrast in decor.

 architecture

But irony aside, peeling paint and stained old concrete is just what the weary traveler has no energy for at the end of a tiring journey.

 architecture

Which is why the rooms upstairs come as more of a surprise.

 architecture
Suddenly you are offered a big hot bath in a glass box and a long night’s sleep on fresh white sheets – comfort!

4 architecture
It is almost as if the contrast is intended to maximize the relief.
5 architecture
Smoky glass is used in several rooms to screen off the shower or bath.

 architecture
Upstairs there are only a few reminders of the antiquated original dockyards structure, like this dark brick wall.

11 architecture
After the historical preservation downstairs, here comfort and peace reign.
10 architecture
Altogether a refreshing spatial experience for guests who seek the extraordinary.

Quality Workmanship Distinguishes a Remote Washington Home

 architecture

This remote split-level residence in Washington’s Nahahum Canyon is by Balance Associates

 architecture

The living room occupies the front double height space.

 architecture

The house steps up the hill with the bedrooms on top at the back and the entry in the middle of this side.

 architecture

Here, massive concrete blocks and fine woodworking offer a sturdy welcome.

 architecture

In such a completely remote setting, the level of quality in the construction is amazing.

 architecture

Fine cabinetmaker details like the table construction suggest some furniture was made by the builder.

 architecture

The ‘Goldilocks’ kitchen, dining and living room arrangement is just right, neither too big or small.

 architecture

Sturdy timber rafters and paneling in the ceiling is continued outside.

 architecture

An unpretentious kitchen island is no nonsense practical, eschewing the trendy island sink.

 architecture

Bedrooms occupy the back of the house upstairs.

 architecture

In front, the ceiling paneling continues to a perfect cosy study nook above the living room.

Everything you need, and nothing more or less.
