With its warm materials and cool design, Fontesecca is a modern interpretation of a traditional Umbrian farmhouse. Brought to life by the design team at Special Umbria, the project was completed in July 2022. Fontesecca is a 350sqm villa that has been built on the site of a derelict farmhouse, from which as many materials as possible were repurposed for the new building. The house’s unique location, tucked into the hills just five minutes from Città della Pieve, offers picture-book views towards the pretty hilltop town, a valley on one side, the Val di Chiana the other, and Tuscany beyond. You can book it here!

This little wooden house with mountain views in Montana is set in the grounds of a working farm and is an oasis of calm. It has a loft-style layout, with open spaces and a single bedroom that also houses the bathroom. It is complemented by a sauna built right next to it, an appreciated facility when the snow has fallen outside in this mountainous region and the cold has set in. You can also warm up by the contemporary fireplace, and in the evening, the sunsets over the mountains in the distance are a fascinating sight. Although it looks rather rustic from the outside, with its weathered wood to blend in with its local surroundings, it nevertheless has a modern interior, and plenty of light thanks to its large glass walls that allow you to enjoy the wild landscape from every room.

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…

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…
