This modern Australian home welcomes owners and visitors with a series of structural elements hidden behind the front entrance. Guiding their steps along the dark-colored first floor towards the main entrance and further back towards the backside garden, sculptural elements hint towards the contemporary features showcased inside. The Promenade Residence composes a stylish suite of rooms culminating with a swimming pool overlooking the nearby harbor. Constructed by Bayden Goddard Design Architects, the modern waterfront home was designed to focus the attention on water views while creating a glamorous interior arrangement suited for a modern urban lifestyle. Social spaces on the ground floor open towards the partly glazed backside, inviting patio and elevated swimming pool. Upstairs, private spaces were carefully constructed to capture views of the street and the water, with large sliding doors seamlessly connecting the main bedroom to a long terrace. Details shape a unique interior design, focusing on a natural color palette accentuated by bold patterns. Consider this waterfront home a source for your next interior design project – it has so many sumptuous features!
A good building should make you want to look at it. Even if not always liked by passers-by, it should always make them feel something. Manchester Metropolitan’s University’s business school is a building that effortlessly fits this criteria. Indeed for many, the building by Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios is their first taste of the architecture of Manchester as they travel along the arterial road, Mancunian Way. With its distinct ski-slope roof, and glittering mirrored appearance, it provides a flash of silver, and a dazzling break from the dull greys of the motorway, greeting motorists in a slightly space-age way as they enter the city
These days, a building doesnt just have to look good, it should ideally be good for the environment too. A great example of sustainability spliced with style from the past few years is the M&S store at Cheshire Oaks Retail Park in Ellesmere Port, designed by Aukett Fitzroy Robinson.
