Elizabeth Roberts and the Fort Greene Townhouse

From NYC-based Elizabeth Roberts comes a stunner of a Fort Greene townhouse renovation. Designed as a pair of 1900 sq. ft. duplexes, Roberts was able to revive the historical details that define old New York architecture while infusing her own sense of modernity into the layout. Pared down kitchen and baths contrast nicely with the original mantles and stairway. For more, visit Elizabeth Roberts Design. Via Remodelista

Barn Domestication by AR Design Studio

We're a little bit inspired by this barn conversion by the UK's AR Design Studio. Dubbed Manor House Stables, the design team managed to construct a space in which the minimalist elements serve a neutral background to some the original architecture. Sections of the wall and doors of wood and steel appear framed in the otherwise whiteness of the space. Not a bad sentiment to carry over into your next remodel. For more, visit AR Design Group.

The Oyster Inn

If you need a place to stay in Auckland anytime soon, look no further than Waiheke Island's Oyster Inn. Founded as a born-again career by a pair of brits, and styled by minimalist guru and Auckland local Katie Lockhart, there's a lot to like about the three-room inn and 80-seat restaurant. Lockhart paired her sense of paired down white-and-wood style with a dash of sentimental beachside kitsch. We couldn't be more ready to check-in. Find out more at The Oyster Inn. Via Remodelista.

Fujiwarramuro Architects

Love the division of space in this home by Fujiwarramuro Architects. Despite the narrowness of the lot, they were able to create a series of cozy complementary spaces - we especially like what the shelf-lined open shaftway does to unify the whole interior. And if that weren't enough...Roofdeck. Roofdeck. Roofdeck.
