Here's another fantastic modern home to wrap up the week. I have a meeting this afternoon with a new client and his architect. Him and his wife are building a modern home in North Rosedale. It's nearly completely concrete and sits on a stunning natural lot. They are at the stage now where interior materials, millwork and furnishings need to be selected. These homes are still pretty rare in Toronto, hence my global research as of late.... The project I've featured below is an addition to an existing Victorian home in Fitzroy, Melbourne. I spent some time in Melbourne 4 or 5 years ago and was struck by how progressive the city is. The culture is distinctly paralleled to North America but in terms of style, both fashion and architecture I dare say they've more quickly taken to the European influences. Thank you to Arren Williams for a fantastic post today highlighting this latest project by Andrew Maynard Architects, the Vader House.
According to Williams "Dwell called him "One of Australia's most exciting young architects." For more background on the Vader House read the Architect's Statement here, and click here to check out other projects."
