    Joshua Tree House by Kendrick Bangs Kellogg.

    8th April

    What I like about writing for Yellowtrace is that I get to spend a fair bit of time mentally arranging my furniture in houses other than my own. With this one I am stumped. Being frank, this house is not my cup of tea. However at this point in time I’m working on a concrete house of some complexity, and so out-of-the-box buildings like this pique my interest, and earn my respect.

    Event Report // Palm Springs Modernism Week 2014.

    25th March

    Armchair tourists, we’re off to California! I recently had the luck to attend this year’s Modernism Week in Palm Springs, with my good friends. With a rented house in the Movie Colony, a bagful of tickets, and heads full of dreams (which is to say we were jetlagged and only half awake), we were primed for a great week. Palm Springs (or as I came to think of it, ‘Hot Bowral’) duly delivered.

    Villa Weinberg by Mette and Martin Wienberg // Højbjerg, Denmark.

    26th November

    I wish this was my house. It’s not – because life is not fair, and also because it belongs to Mette and Martin Wienberg, both architects. Both Danish architects at that, meaning my predisposition to like this place is as strong as Sarah Lund’s determination to fight crime, as severe as her eyebrows, and as enveloping as one of her jumpers…

    House in Gerês by Graça Correia & Roberto Ragazzi // Portugal.

    12th November

    I first saw this house published quite a while ago but it’s one of those projects that got under my skin, and is probably worth dusting off and looking at afresh. It’s a house in northern Portugal, by Graça Correia & Roberto Ragazzi. Conceived of as a long concrete box jutting thrillingly out over a drop down to the river, the house is a simple concept with terrific structural engineering. This is the sort of house I look at and start mentally arranging my own furniture in…

    Idokoro House by mA-Style Architects // Shizouka, Japan.

    22nd October

    Konichiwa! Today we’re south of Mount Fuji in the Shizouka Prefecture of Japan, to look at a house so good I wish I’d thought of it myself. This little slice of simplicity is by mA-Style Architects, and the photographs come from Kai Nakamura. I’m not sure who supplied the child but goodness what a lot of reading they’re getting through. This is not a big house, but a deft hand has made it spacious. A lot of this is down to the central courtyard which pours daylight into the core of the house, where it washes those brilliant white walls and brings out the warm tones of the timber…

    The Providence Chapel in Wiltshire by Jonathan Tuckey Design.

    9th October

    I bet I know exactly what this house smells like. I lived in the UK for five years and was a member of the National Trust so am au fait with the parsimonious timbery whiff of little country churches and barn conversions. Strap on your Hunter wellies and pass me the Range Rover, we’re going to Bath. Or just outside Bath, in Colerne…
