The Bellville Project designed by Dick Clark + Associates is a multi-structure composition on a sprawling 700-acre site located in the Texas Hill Country. From the onset, the two families who own the property were clear about what they wanted the project to be: a communal ranch, featuring private residences and a shared clubhouse, allowing for both private retreat and regular entertaining. Our design team visualized a shared central pavilion easily accessible from the two residences, but the true challenge was to create custom homes that individually addressed the couples’ different aesthetics and wish lists, while connecting the overall property with a unified design.

The heart of the property is a 2,830 SF pavilion, an ideal space for the families and guests to gather. Supported by an exposed steel structure reminiscent of spider legs, the building features frameless clerestory windows giving the roof the magical impression of floating. The space has a decidedly Texas aesthetic thanks to the knotty Post Oak found throughout the structure. Certain cues were taken from traditional farmhouse design, but the pavilion is distinctly contemporary.

The larger of the two residences sits roughly one mile from the property’s central pavilion. This home features a series of steel doors and windows that open up to the idyllic landscape and spectacular fireplace, which features a stucco hearth and stack bond firebrick that seamlessly extends the length of the wall. The smaller of the two residences is next to the property’s original 150-year-old farmhouse. This home was designed to be compatible with the farmhouse vernacular, and while liberties were taken with the materials, the home fits beautifully with the adjacent bunkhouse and cookhouse. A series of outdoor rooms around each house accentuate the indoor/outdoor relationship present in the architecture, all while weaving the native meadows, plantings and vegetated swales into the overall visitor experience.

Kimpton has revealed plans to launch a new outpost, Kimpton Sylvan Hotel, in Atlanta this February. Kimpton’s creative director and global senior vice president of design Ave Bradley is collaborating on the 217-room project with New York-based interior design studio Goodrich to characterize the property with a refined midcentury-style aesthetic.

A series of compelling sightlines will be established from the living room to the secret garden and landscaped grounds. Abundant natural light will be infused to highlight the bright interior palette and the precise craftsmanship that defines the custom furniture.

“Throughout the entire the property—from the guestrooms to the restaurants and bars—one of the intentions of our vision for the Sylvan was to work with the inspiring bones of this midcentury building and create a series of intimate spaces visually connected to one another with a subtle shift of identity and vibe as you move throughout them,” Bradley says.

Furthermore, a curved, oversized fireplace comprising stonework and glazed tile accents will anchor the living room, while The Betty, the hotel’s nostalgia-inducing supper club, will recall old Hollywood with dark woods, rich leathers, cool marble, and moody lighting. Coming this April, the Willow Bar will feature a stained glass wall that casts the clean material palette aglow. The property will be crowned by St. Julep, a vibrant rooftop lounge set against panoramic views of the cityscape this spring as well.

Margen Wigow Arkitektkontor has designed a contemporary house located on the island of Öland in southern Sweden.

The design of the home was inspired by its surroundings, like vast fields, low vegetation, and limestone formations.

A modern home with glass and limestone walls.

Wood panels on the outside are specially sawn and untreated so they over time will have the same gray color as the stone.

A modern house with a wood and glass facade.

The limestone walls and the extended roofs protect against weather and wind and the large glass sections take in the view of the sea and the landscape outside.

A modern summer home with glass and limestone walls.

The limestone continues through to the interior of the home, where a wall separates the main living room from a small sitting area with a fireplace.

The main living room shares the open floor plan with a bar area, dining space, and kitchen.

Large sliding glass doors open the interior to a terrace that has water views. The glass walls also allow the natural light to flood the living spaces. On the terrace, there’s a secondary kitchen and an outdoor fireplace.

The home also includes concrete floors and the use of ash wood, like in the floor-to-ceiling bookshelves.

These two 100 square metre home designs are the epitome of elegant modernity, depicted in light and airy palettes of soft white, whispers of pale grey and moments of natural wood tone. We will tour one contemporary home that comes alive with neat Scandinavian chic and a hint of warm boho vibes, designed as an escape from the homeowner couple’s demanding business trips. Next we’ll fall into a comfortably curvaceous decor scheme with sleek styling, unique silhouettes and intriguing glass partitions, which include a pocket door kitchen and a master bedroom closet/ensuite combo. Floor plans are included at the end of each home tour for layout inspiration.

inStone is a project designed by Atelier DRK. In an early seventies building, we found an uncharacterized apartment, too compartmentalized and with little natural light. The challenge was to bring a contemporary language ensuring the comfort of modern living under controlled costs. Photography by Ivo Tavares Studio.

Severely constrained by the available space, the highly detailed works of dismantling partition walls and build new space guides brought a new distribution and a smoother transition between rooms. Finding structural walls made of stone and the impossibility of their removal brought a new problem. Keeping the stone visible turned the problem into a solution, marking the character of the space as well as its own uniqueness and exclusivity. Exploring the idea of evolutionary and adaptable architecture, incorporating flexibility into planning and designing, brought in concepts suited to the different requirements of the space appropriation, allowing the use of a hallway as an office or turn a reading area into a guest room. The extreme care of working the light as a shaping element of the space combined with the selection of natural claddings highlights the stone, assuring the elegance and distinction of the different rooms, making the experience of this space absolutely distinctive.
