Modern Dune-like Golf Clubhouse in Jordan

The design of this modern dune-like golf clubhouse in Jordan by Oppenheim Architecture blends right into the surrounding area. The clubhouse sits on a leisure development that includes an 18 hole golf course designed by Greg Norman and will house commercial space, as well as residential apartments, and a hotel.

The clubhouse itself will include luxuries such as a spa, retail space, dinning, shopping, and a golf analysis area. The stunning design is composed of a concrete shell that has been sprayed on to suit the undulating curves of the building.

According to designboom, “the construction of the project is the result of a knowledge exchange program between the european office of oppenheim architecture and local workforce.”

This would be the perfect place to send your dad to relax. I am sure he could imagine himself sitting back after a round of golf and admiring the architecture and workmanship put into the build.

Inside the Hamptons home of Hugh Jackman and Deborra-lee Furness

In honour of Father’s Day, we are taking a look at one of the impressive homes of celebrity dad Hugh Jackman and his partner Deborra-lee Furness. Together they have had quite the property portfolio from Melbourne to New York and Bondi to the Hamptons. We are taking a look inside their Hamptons home which has taken years to perfect.

According to Vogue Living the perfectionist couple has taken over four years to perfect the house. Jackman, Furness and their kids Oscar and Ava moved into the homes guesthouse, a 435 square metre wooden cabin, while it remained in design phase during that long stretch. The guest house has been restored and painted black, with the main house being done in white. As stated in Vogue, “I love opposites — I’m very into black and white,” says Furness.

The home is off the beaten track and incorporates natural materials, mainly wood. Deborra-lee Furness worked closely with Stelle Lomont Rouhani Architects to design and create various aspects of the house, including the custom platform bed with integrated lighting, indoor-outdoor shower, and the bespoke vanity.

Let’s take a look inside the stunning architecture of this modern minimalist home.

Inside the rumoured New York apartment of Gisele and Tom Brady

The views from this stunning apartment in New York’s trendy Tribeca neighbourhood are nothing short of amazing. We take a look inside the rumoured New York apartment of Gisele and Tom Brady.

The couple are synonymous with luxury and their previous homes are a good example of that. We have previously looked inside their LA home and their Manhattan Loft, which both show the couples expensive taste. This nearly 5,000 square foot apartment with panoramic views was apparently purchased by the couple for $35.3 million late last year.

The five bedroom five bath home features a large a luxurious outdoor space with panoramic views of Manhattan and the Hudson River. According to Vogue, the apartment complex was designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects with the interiors designed by Daniel Romualdez Architects, including rich accents like hand-sawn oak, bronze and marble.

The complex not only features the best in design but the service and common areas are just as impressive. It includes an expansive lobby, a wellness level, and an impressive kids play area designed by award winning firm Roto. There is also a beautifully furnished entertainment area, pool room and cafe.
