Author and architect A.X. Ahmad called out a few of his favorite houses from past issues, and we've gathered a few images here for easy perusal.
Today, the New York Times ran a story on summer reading that recommended glossy magazines like Dwell (though we mostly print on matte paper!). Author and architect A.X. Ahmad called out a few of his favorite houses from past issues, and we've gathered a few images here for easy perusal.
Ahmad's first mention is the Finger-Kennedy residence in which, "a young couple with two kids transformed their miniscule apartment with hidden storage units," he says. The compact 700-square-foot New York City abode (shown here) was designed by noRoof Architects. Photo by: Raimund Koch.
Next up, "a Seattle architect [who] built a house using piers on very steep land." Prentis Hale's residence floats at the edge of the wooded park, nestled among the boughs and branches. Anchored upon 11 piers, it’s clad in colored strips of asphalt roll roofing, an affordable siding alternative that Hale chose to resemble bark. Photo by: Philip Newton
The "well-known furniture designer [who] renovated his 1967 prefab house on a remote island" is none other that Jens Risom. Catch a video tour of the residence and interview with Risom here. Photo by: Floto + Warner
Designed for Dialog from our entertaining issue details the Toronto loft of Dr. Kenneth Montague, the "swinging dentist with his rooftop apartment." Photo by Naomi Finlay.
Lastly, Ahmad mentions a "couple with their elegant Palm Springs mid-century modern home." See more of the storied party house here. Photo by: JUCO
