When it comes to 70’s architecture, you either love it or loath it, I’m on the love it side. There’s something very pleasing when you see a group of striking oblongs make shape into functional home. I’ve found this example of a 70’s home that has been modernised with glass extensions and designed beautifully throughout.
Known locally as ‘The Mushroom House’ because of its narrow concrete base and load baring steel construction giving it a mushroom like shape. The architect, Radovan Halper, successfully designed houses like these made to be built on hilly plots and uneven terrain. The ground floor, being narrow, is made up of all hallway and main staircase which leads upstairs to the main living area in the centre. The main living floor also contains three bedrooms and open plan kitchen.In addition to that main living space on the first floor the staircase continues up one more floor to a family room for the children. Now home to the Editor in Chief of Residence, Hanna Nova Beatrice, this building has been developed into a dreamy modernist’s palace and a place I’d gladly move in a shot!
This terrace area was designed by super cool interior designer Anya Sebton creating a social space that’s calm and beautiful, with well considered furniture and minimalist styling. This leads onto a glass extension of the living area, making a cohesive flow, both outside and in.
