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. Besides the loft-standard set of brick walls and wooden beams, the interiors now have spectacular cabinet furniture of deep blue shade and a diverse decor in ethnic style. Great design for a stylish apartment!!!

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…

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…

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…

Two Sheds, by design studio Dreamer Lab, is located on 25 acres of bush in the hills immediately to the west of the Lorne township, Victoria, Australia. It is a retreat allowing the clients to disconnect from the world of city, noise, and work as they come together to reconnect and begin a 30-year project to rejuvenate the surrounding bushland. The project uses a minimal material palette and a simple design language drawing from local cottages, agricultural buildings and Australian vernacular. It provides a backdrop for cherished family experiences as the inhabitants slow down, notice and engage with the simple joys of living. ( Published with BowerBird ) Photography : Rory Gardiner

A private residence that is located on the site of the vacated Trinity House Experimental Station (the organisation responsible for the maintenance of English Lighthouses), this project by interior architects Johnson Naylor has all the hallmarks of their sensitive and contextual approach to design. The site is a combination of new builds and refurbishments of existing structures and is designed to sit lightly on this unique environment. The building consists of studios and living spaces.

When the 1st Ave client approached Haeccity Studio, it was clear they were looking for a sophisticated aesthetic, but with a sense of humour. They had a small, but beloved collection of art and eclectic artefacts to be incorporated, and they wanted to be very involved.The result is an interior face-lift of a compact two-storey apartment in Vancouver’s False Creek neighbourhood that would personalize the space for the unique couple, while simultaneously transforming the existing layout into a more functional and spacious home. The ubiquity of light on the upper level was an important consideration for the design of a feature staircase with a custom white perforated metal guardrail screen. This porous partition, drawn from South American courtyards visited by the couple, invites natural light to pour onto the wooden staircase and entry below, and animates the space with a subtle play of ever-changing shadows.( Published with Bowerbird ) Photography…

A residential model suite for Toronto-based boutique developer, Curated Properties, focuses on bringing the appeal of a cabin getaway into the heart of the city. The suite interior by Mason Studio takes inspiration from vernacular Northern Ontario cottage residences and creates a contemporary translation through refinement of materiality and detailing to reflect the urban condition. The use of locally sourced materials in combination with furniture, artwork and accessories by Canadian craftspeople creates an interior environment that is direct reflection of the current Canadian design context.
