An extraordinary 31+1 Suite Hotel located in the heart of Salzburg. The Mozart is yet another interior design gem born from Studio Eliste’s team-up with Heym Collections. The uniqueness of this hotel lays in the tasteful combination of old and new: beautiful wooden chevron floors, gold fixtures & lamps, calming sage green walls accompanied by a warm-colored fabric mix and lovely floral patterns as well as deco details. Residents can truly breathe an artful spirit inspired by its name patron W.A. Mozart when residing in this lovely hotel. The highlight of The Mozart Hotel, however, resides on its ground level. An old apothecary cabinet was transformed into a breathtaking lower bar within the bistro and restaurant area. The look of the space was completed with marble, wooden tones, and timeless chair classics by TON.

Endless adventures start here with ski in and ski out and home to the Elk Camp Gondola.Although One Snowmass complete in 2020, the history of Snowmass goes back to 2009 at the peak of the Recession.

Then another developer resurrected the project.One Snowmass includes 41 residences throughout two buildings. Residences include two, three, and four-bedroom layouts. The mid-century modern architecture and decor complement the surroundings with the backdrop of Mt. Daly. All the contemporary residences include floor to ceiling windows to showcase the breathless views of Aspen. The design is fairly a neutral palette with…

The task by SIKORA INTERIORS, was unusual: to create a holiday apartment with a view of 1000 years of Gdansk’s history for a Japanese-American couple. Functionally, the building resembles a single-family house on the top of a tenement building: on the ground floor there is a living room, kitchen, and small bathroom, and on the upper floor there is a master bedroom. But what is unusual and of which we are very proud is the incorporation of Japanese and American inspiration into the Hanseatic tradition of the city. We searched the world for furniture and accessories to fully capture the unique fusion of styles in every detail.This is an interior for relaxation that does not deceive us with very superficial, shining, and shiny things, but an interior that is truly soft, full of delicate upholstery, and details. During the analysis of what traditional Japanese architecture looked like, we realized that…

Bateau Bay on the central coast of New South Wales is extremely picturesque, a short stroll from the beach and a national park. However, while the site is idyllic, the original 1970s single-storey brick house, was far from appealing, particularly for a couple with two young children – small rooms and little connection to the garden (a plot of 580 square metres). While the site and original house were modest, the owners came with grander ideas, many of which were driven by their love of modernist post-war architecture that can be found in places such as Palm Springs. So although the new design by Fabric Architecture Studio has elements from the 1950s – breezeblock fences, crazy paving and large picture windows, this is clearly a contemporary home, designed for a family.  Given the owner’s collection of furniture and art, it was decided from the outset to create a clean and fairly…

This project breathes new life into a grand old terrace house overlooking Princes Park in Melbourne’s inner north. Set within a row of picturesque terrace houses typical of inner-suburban Melbourne, the project by BENT Architecture retains the ornate detailing and tall ceilings typical of its type and remodels and extends the house to create a generous, flexible and light-filled family home. Taking its visual cues from the grandeur and scale of the existing home, Princes Hill Lighthouse was designed to comfortably house young adult children and their parents in a way which gives each their autonomy. The home is built over three levels to maximise programme whilst minimising building footprint, resulting in precious outdoor space that is both functional and contributory to the amenity of the interiors. Each level acts as its own suite with a bedroom and bathroom; living spaces are all combined on the ground floor. On the…

The Lavender Bay 1880s terrace house is located in a conservation area, and the idea was to maintain and reinstate the original heritage features of the home while keeping the configuration. Designers used a variety of different materials and design to do this throughout the home. Nathalie Scipioni Architects supported the client through the entire process of her renovation, from concept, approval, CA, and heritage. They designed the home to suit the client’s lifestyle.

This 3 bedroom flat renovation within a prestigious mansion by block by Astrain Scheldt Architects looked to open up the cellular reception spaces and enhance connectivity with the kitchen and hallway. Sliding glazed fire rated doors were used to enhance views and natural light within the property. Fairly intensive structural alterations were required in order to accommodate the new layout, which had to go through a meticulous approvals process with the management company and block surveyor. Designers’ interior design concept for the project was based around providing a bright, contemporary backdrop for our client’s eclectic mix of fabrics, furniture and artwork. The architecture of the space needed to be simple, elegant and respectful of the original Edwardian feel to the flat.

The Royal Mail Hotel was constructed in 1855 by an early English Settler by the name of William Mereweather. The Mt. Sturgeon Homestead started construction 10 years later in 1865. These four blue-stone cottages located at the base of Mt. Sturgeon were originally the quarters to the cooks and shearers who worked at the nearby station. Byrne Architects’ goal for the cottage’s restoration was to create a cosy and calming sanctuary that providing a natural escape and getaway from everyday life. Their primary concern for the project was to encompass the secluded and natural environment around the cottages whilst also retaining the history and raw beauty of the dwelling’s original structure. So they incorporated a vast mixture of earthy tones, natural textiles, and timber ceiling beams to the interior design to help to equalise the cool bluestone walls. Not only did this adds hints of warmth to the space, but…
