The Modern House #5

The Modern House Magazine, a 135-page exploration into modern forms of living, design and architecture. Featuring originally commissioned photography, opinion pieces, long-form writing, interviews, Q&As and more, we survey what it means to live in a thoughtful, considered way, both in and out of the home.

In Issue #5

From a visit to JohnPawson’s minimally made-over Cotswolds farmhouse to profiles on those at the fore of London’s creative scene, and a vineyard reimagining 21st-century wine making using ancient agricultural practices, issue No.5 looks at the ways people push things forward by rethinking and reinventing.

In west London, we meet the young architect Fahad Malik, who is reimagining contemporary urban life through a residential scheme with community at its heart. InSuffolk, visual artist Ryan Gander tells of how he adapted a red-brick Georgian building for both his artistic and his accessibility needs–and the modernist cues that inspired the work. As we discovered when we commissioned Canadian artist GabBois to remake iconic modernist furniture using food and everyday materials, redesigning for the sheer fun of it can be of enormous value too.

Meanwhile, we are excited to share our own venture into seeing things anew. Earlier this year, we asked our community to send us pictures that represent home to them; now we’re bring the winning submissions to you for our Portfolio piece in this issue. By turns beautiful, intimate, poignant and heart-warming, the images examine the complex and varied emotional relationship we all share with home.
