Broderic Design developed a unique, playful, vision for a stylish couple’s Tribeca loft by mixing artisanal furniture with vintage finds for a one of a kind home.

This building on the Keizersgracht in Amsterdam, was completely renovated and adapted by Studiojvz to the wishes of the times on behalf of the new owners – an enterprising couple with a focus on foreign countries.Van Zwetselaar’s design DNA is clear: he likes the contrast between old and new, in order to balance history and future with each other. He likes to use the word heritage to indicate where his heart lies.The house consists of a front, a back and a garden house and the first stone was laid in the seventeenth century. It was a house full of asymmetry, very disjointed and everything was out of balance but the studio made it a whole again. Enjoy the virtual tour!!!!

In the middle of the city you will find this beautiful attic of 340 sqm in two characterful floors. Here, the highest quality is offered with material selection from all over the world and the floor really sets the standard for an architecturally designed home. Located in Stockholm city centre, this stylish home used to belong to the founder of Swedish fashion brand Filippa K. When she left a few years ago, she sold it furnished, probably because some of the pieces such as the marble kitchen table was designed especially for this space. The new owner stayed true to the stylist’s signature and the interior didn’t change much over the years. Isn’t it a proof that good styling is timeless? The home itself is a modern and restful oasis that has undergone a meticulous renovation with a lovely blend between the original building’s structure and modern architectural additions. At the top, sun is offered in…

Vora Villas is a 3-room boutique hotel that clings to the edge of a volcano crater on the Greek island of Santorini. Conceived in close collaboration with the client, the design, by K-Studio, is a unique and dramatic celebration of the inherent energy of island, its architectural traditions, and the intensity of the hotel’s crater-edge location. “Our brief was to design a small boutique hotel on a dramatic site on the edge of the volcano of Santorini.The client, a native of the island, had a vision and determination that drove the project from beginning to end, and gave us the opportunity to push the concept and its realisation to the very edge, in all senses”, say the architects.The result is a truly unique and dramatic design that celebrates the inherent energy of the client, the architectural traditions of the island, and the intensity of the hotel’s crater-edge location.

In Piegaro, on the border with Tuscany and near Lake Trasimeno, you can stay in this traditional large country house by Special Umbria . The building is beautifully positioned with amazing views towards Tuscany. The interior of Mazzo is one of a kind and truly different from what you will normally find in an ordinary holiday apartment. The style can be described as ‘shabby chique’. Old looking furniture is combined with modern design and industrial lighting. Old wood has an important role in the entire design, as well as colors, which will be found in the fabrics you will see all around the apartment.

David Cafiero has a strong sense for eclectic vintage and contemporary materials. Born and raised in the Hudson Valley, David has been many things: forester in his family’s lumber business; commercial fisherman on New England’s coast; private yacht chef throughout the Caribbean; event planner, café owner, and decorator in New York City. His style is eclectic, pragmatic, quietly sensual, like a Yankee just returned from early 20th century Paris. A longtime resident of Provincetown, he has also been deeply influenced by its salt-air worn woods, shifting, elemental light, and its long relationship with abstract expressionism.

This residential project by REID architecture PLLC, embraces sustainability and takes the concept of recycling building materials to another level with the reuse, rehabilitation, and relocation of two older vernacular structures, an early 20th century roadside barbershop and a mid-19th century kitchen building, into a small weekend cottage in tidewater Virginia. The two abandoned wood frame structures were renovated and upgraded with insulation, framing repairs, new roofing, and additional salvaged windows to create bright open interiors and water views for a narrow 5-acre peninsula lot on the Yeocomico River.The two buildings are connected by a narrow breezeway that functions as an entry and a small dining nook.A small addition on the south side provides a bathroom and kitchen. A covered porch was added on the north to create an outdoor seating area with views of the 18th century port and village of Kinsale. ( Published with BowerBird). Photography : Francis…

Villa Kuro, a desert dwelling designed by Mini Inno, sits elevated on 3.6 acres in front of a boulder mountain (which is adjacent to thousands of acres of National Park land) with 270 degree views of the desert, vistas, mountains and city lights. The property is dotted with mature desert landscaping and Joshua Trees. There are multiple outdoor living areas including a private 600 square foot rock and cactus garden courtyard, a covered patio with outdoor dining, and amenities such as a salt water hot tub, outdoor shower and propane fire pit. The 1960’s mid-century style home has been extensively renovated inside and out, transforming it into a unique desert hideaway. The focus was to maximize indoor-outdoor living, with all rooms featuring sliders to the outdoors, and windows inside perfectly frame the views outside. The earthy interior evokes a calming and serene feeling by the use of natural materials throughout…

Inspiration for this project by Snorre Stinessen Studio, was mainly drawn from the landscape, the orientation in relation to views, privacy and the sun, but also strongly from the client wish to entertain guests and family visiting over longer periods.The design seeks to emphasise the closeness to the nature while allowing a comfortable stay indoors and it also seeks to underline the transition between spaces and activities we normally are too busy to appreciate. The building is comprised of several individual volumes and spaces connected via in-between spaces that provide an experience of being outdoors and symbolises the transition between spaces and functions. The conceptual idea is to tell the story of journeys in the everyday life and to emphasise the values and importance of our different activities. The organisation also allows for guests to stay over longer periods and several activities to take place without disturbing each other. Photography…
