1 The Old Library

This is a great space. Defining the bar with that steel and glass structure was clever, and the bathroom...awesome. 

From the designer: 
Located in a seaside suburb of Sydney, the Old Library was originally a Methodist church build circa 1908, and went on to be the shire library in the 1970’s. The original building had great bones and an existing level of texture (exposed beams and timber lining). Working within the voluminous spaces we created a sense of intimacy and gathering through creating a series of rooms within rooms and spaces within spaces. Custom furniture pieces and a natural palette of oak, linen, white timber and blackened steel contribute to the relaxed and somewhat domestic space that is The Old Library.

0 Surfhouse Hermosa Beach XTEN Architecture

Surfhouse designed by XTEN Architecture is not far from our house, down the street from our landlord's house.  We pass it each time we drop off our rent check, and every time we get excited.  It is quite visually stunning with its black geometric exterior.  I'd love to move in.

From the designer: 
The facade is made from rough sawn, black stained cedar planks with volumetric openings at primary program spaces and a system of identical vertical casement windows arrayed across the secondary elevations for specific views and ventilation. The interior is all light and air, with bamboo floors and walls of glass that slide away to bring the beachside environment inside.
