MR House MR House

Heavy on the concrete, easy on the words.  Something for the weekend in the form of MR House by Luciano Kruk Arquitectos.  Dreamy indeed.

OSB OSB OSB OSB OSB OSB

Because I'm partial to a bit of oriented strand board.  I mean, who isn't?  I'm also partial to the shape of this compact two seater sofa and its tapered beech legs which complement the OSB beautifully.  The maker behind this piece, De Derriere Les Fagots, has created an array of simple, functional designs using a variety of materials including another favourite of mine ... plywood.  Go, see, tell me what you think ...

Avid readers of Midcentury will no doubt recognise this Blackheath townhouse from Issue 08, and I couldn't contain my delight when I spotted it up for sale on The Modern House a week or so ago.  Not that I'm in the market for a 'des res' south of the river, but it was such a joy to see even more wonderful images - and a floorplan - of what might just be one of my favourite homes.  Head over to The Modern House for more details on this Grade II-listed Span house, its history and architect Eric Lyons.

Oh, and I hate to disappoint, but this exceptional little house is now 'under offer'.  Hardly surprising.
