Boooox Heritage Barn project is an old barn re-designed into an elegant and functional living space by architecture studio OOOOX, located in Liberec, Czech Republic. The structure was preserved to respect its history and surroundings, with plenty of imagination, attention to detail and a design that meets the needs of the client which produced a spectacular end result. The main concept of the project is the division of the color black applied to the exterior of the home, while white is used in the interiors. Both the inside and outside are dominated by the use of wood, with the flooring on the interior is comprised of brick, painted white. The interior living spaces reflect the original structure of the barn, including the framing through a large picture window. The wooden exterior facade has been restored to the original style, with windows on the ground floor fitted into where the original barn door opening once was. The windows are also covered with wooden shutters that, when closed, are in the same expression as the exterior facade. The main objective to preserve the open spaces on both levels up to the roofline. Interior railings, whether solid or mesh, were selected for the safety of both children and family pets. The selection of airy materials opens and closes visually different spaces. The designers created a podium for the staircase landings that runs dual-purposed as extra storage space to keep the modern interiors clean and tidy.
In keeping with the black and white theme, furnishings and materials selections were kept in the same color palette. A black and white cow hide area rug adds pattern and visual interest to the white interiors. The black staircase leading up to the second level breaks up the white walls. The whole interior on both levels has been designed as an open concept without any doors to close off spaces. What do you think, are you a fan of the black and white interiors?

This fabulous mid century modern property was given a complete overhaul by architect Jon Barrick along with Dynan Construction Management, located on Venice Island, Florida. Originally built in 1959, the owners had owned this home for ten years as a vacation retreat from their life in Minneapolis. After retiring and moving in permanently, they felt that their kitchen was too cramped, the bedrooms too small and the outdoor space was not very usable. The homeowners have a love affair with mid-century modern, so they wanted to preserve as much of the architecture as possible, while adapting to their lifestyle needs. The rooflines were kept in tact, the terrazzo flooring was preserved and anodized aluminum frames were used for the windows. The design team created a seamless addition to the main living spaces, bedrooms were given en-suite bathrooms for guests and a screened-in porch was added to the back of the home. Cross ventilation was given careful consideration to take advantage of the ocean breezes through appropriately place windows. Indoor-outdoor living was of the outmost importance to take advantage of the Florida lifestyle.
The side yard was used to add the extension, with existing interior walls demolished so that the new kitchen could open up to the living and dining spaces. The open plan kitchen space then became the social center of the home, thus a great space for entertaining guests. The existing slope of the roof was preserved by sloping the ceiling in the kitchen to the outside perimeter. A large picture window was installed in the just above the kitchen counter to counteract the low ceiling and infuse the space with light. The kitchen cabinets are comprised of rift-cut, white oak slab in a horizontal grain with the upper cabinets designed with white glass and aluminum framing, creating a beautiful contrast with the wood. Silestone countertops and a waterfall island detail completes the look, creating a real showstopper. The kitchen is connected to the outdoors with sliding glass panels that folds into the wall, blurring the borders of indoors and out. We love your feedback here on 1 Kindesign, what do you think of this fabulous transformation? Do you love mid-century design?

This beautiful guest house was the first phase of a master planned compound designed by Carney Logan Burke Architects, nestled along Fish Creek in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Designed for an architect and his wife, the retreat is situated on a gently sloping, five acre wooded site. Comprised of 950 square feet, the focal point to the design was to immerse the owners into nature, awakening the senses through sight and sound. Sited next to a rushing stream, one feels a sense of relaxation and tranquility. Large expanses of windows opens to the outside and brings sunlight in. The house was oriented to take advantage of the forested views on three sides of its axis, with the four side directed towards the stream. A exterior facade forms a simple rectangular box, merging with the natural environment. The zoning for the guest house was limited to 1,000 square feet, so the design scheme was compact yet highly functional. The interiors are comprised of a bedroom on one side of the home and the bath on the other, delineated by a glass enclosed living zone, encompassing a small galley style kitchen.
The exterior of the home is clad with cedar shingles and bonderized steel. The interiors feature natural and light toned materials such as white oak flooring, doors and millwork. The lighter palette helps to keep the small space bright and airy. The bedroom is positioned with a large corner window to create the experience of living in the woods. Outdoor decks allow guests to enjoy their surroundings and take advantage of the creek. Since the home is on a heavily wooded site, the architect was not able to use solar, but south facing windows uses sunlight to passively heat the space. There is also a wood burning stove that can be used during the winter months. Boulders excavated during the building process were incorporated into the retaining walls to complement the natural setting. We at 1 Kindesign love hearing your thoughts, what do you think of this guest retreat? Please let us know!

This mouth-watering Nantucket beach house was designed as a summer retreat for a young family by Ike Kligerman Barkley, located in Nantucket, Massachusetts. The charming home maintains the integrity of the local shingle style architecture, offering a fresh, relaxing place to unwind. The home was originally dark and closed off and did not have that beach style atmosphere that the family of five was looking for. After an extensive renovation and re-decoration of the property, this four bedroom, four-and-a-half bathroom beach pad showcases a perfect balance of modern and traditional design elements. The new open layout creates a harmonious transition between spaces, showcasing a soft color palette of neutrals, greens and blues and lots of coastal light. A mix of artisan woodwork, plush upholstery, exposed ceiling beams and hardwood flooring helps to provide unity throughout. Custom designed textiles and vintage light fixtures infuse warmth into the spaces.
