This contemporary residence is located at the base of Table Mountain in Cape Town, South Africa.
The project won a 2010 Honor Award from the American Society and Landscape Architects for its many sustainable features and its amazing local flora garden.
Los Angeles-based architect Rob Wellington Quigley has designed the Alden Residence, a wood and concrete home on the prestigious Beverly Park Drive in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, California.
Built in 1999, the 13,081 square foot luxury home belongs to David Alden, a theater and film director who specializes in post-modernist opera design.
This one-of-a-kind duplex penthouse is located in the Dietz Lantern Building in Tribeca, New York City.
The luxury five bedroom five and a half bathroom apartment occupies the building’s entire top two floors.
Spectacular views and light flood the apartment from fifty (!) windows facing east, west, north, and south.
Created by Bob and Cortney Novogratz, the renowned team of Sixx Design, the 400 West Street residence is the “blend of the modern and the vintage, the use and flow of space, of uptown features in a downtown location:
an indoor basketball court that converts to a screening room, huge entertaining spaces and a two-car garage.”
The 7,180 square foot six-story townhouse overlooks the Hudson River and has gorgeous views from different floors.
Found on Mires, a French location finding agency, this must see renovated early 20th century house, with contemporary loft-style interiors.
This residence is located in the Hauts-de Seine department, West of Paris, France.
The best part of the property is an attached warehouse that was transformed into a huge and impressive loft-like living room.
Last sold in February 2008 for $6,79 Million, this four bedroom, 4.5 bathroom townhouse built in 1915 was heavily renovated by architect and designer Leopoldo Rosati.
The 6,804 square foot three story residence went back on the market in October 2009, with an asking price of $15 million, lowered to $14 million last December.
Removed from the market several weeks ago, the Tribeca pad is now the new house arrest spot for former IMF president Dominique Strauss-Khan.
10.05.11 Update: the house is back on the market, now offered at $12.5 million. In case someone needs a house arrest home base, the home is still for rent at $50,000/month…
The exterior and lobby of the building were restored and large residential units were created on the upper floors, including this two-story penthouse on the roof.
Known as “The Elrod House”, this John Lautner-designed five bedroom, five and a half bathroom residence was commissioned by designer Arthur Elrod in 1968 and has been featured in numerous books, magazines and museum exhibitions.
It is the iconic home perched at the very tip of the Southridge enclave, easily viewable throughout Palm Springs, California.
Organic shapes, monumental construction and world class design create an extraordinary experience of space that Lautner himself described as “timeless” architecture.
