Parrish

Visiting the Parrish Art Museum

In our October Modern Across America issue, we previewed the Hamptons' Parrish Art Museum, designed by Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron with interiors by Konstantin Grcic. Last week, we had the chance to see the building in person, right before it opened to the public on Saturday, November 10. When driving up the Montauk Highway on the eastern end of Long Island, it’s unclear if you are approaching an art museum or a farm. That is the subtle beauty of Parrish's new home, a space where industry meets the pastoral.

More Modern on the Inside: Slab Apartment, Athens

Athens, Greece, the cradle of classical architecture, is home to this modern renovation of an 810-square-foot apartment. The pied-à-terre's location in Plaka, the historic neighborhood at the foot of the Acropolis, posed quite the challenge for the architects at K-Studio. They faced stringent oversight from the city's archaeology department, who had to place their seal of approval on all design and structural work. To that end, the Slab apartment is an enclave of contemporary simplicity within a neoclassical shell erected at the turn of the 19th century.

NHR Apartment by Gut Gut

In our March 2012 issue we toured this small Bratislava, Slovak Republic, apartment in the story True Value. Now we're having a look at another hip flat by the same firm, Gut Gut. This time the scale is a bit bigger—the renovated space is over 1,100 square-feet instead of just 516—but the smart, colorful, and cost-conscious approach is the same. So click through to see how this up-and-coming Slovakian firm recast the ground floor of an early-90s apartment building as a stylish and scrappy family home.

Built-ins abound in this renovation of a 1970s lodge perched high in the French Alps. H2O Architectes devised a plan to increase livable space while leaving the structure intact.
