The 1930’s warehouse shell has been transformed by Maike Design into a bright and inspiring creative work space. Providing different zones of use throughout offers the flexibility required for both collaborative work and individual creative exploration whilst retaining the original building’s sense of scale. Studio Sisu is designed to address the physical limitations and isolation of an industry fractured by small studio business models. It brings together complimentary businesses to create opportunities for discussion and interaction amongst peers. Encouraging creative collaboration of ideas and skills creates an environment otherwise inaccessible to small businesses or individual practitioners. Using a mixture of high and low cost materials, furniture and fittings has allowed the design to create a highly crafted and unique environment within the specified budget. The inclusion of refurbished antique furniture and fittings allows the new building work to sit comfortably alongside the existing factory structure. Photography : Sean Fennessy See…

The brunch bistro that puts ingredients front-and-center served as an inspiration to dekleva gregoric architects to unveil the space in a similarly candid way: by stripping down the walls and ceiling, we laid out the space’s history from underneath decades of plaster. The naked walls revealed memories from times past, with a mixed construction of brick and stone and brick vaults typical for ground floors in 19th century town structures.The light fixtures are similarly pared back, with nothing but bare bulbs attached to copper wiring, which runs against the ceiling and wall, then disappears in the gap between wooden floor and brick wall. Custom-designed white marble tables reference the traditional French bistro table, their small size and shape allowing for various arrangements of the seating layout, adapting to individuals, couples or private group setups. The thin black structures are also featured on the food showcase wall in the form of…

The family business was looking for a corporate project that would escape the standard office concept – instead, they wanted to feel at home. The integration of spaces with a minimalist, contemporary and sophisticated essence were other key elements, for clients with close ties to art and design.  For this corporate project, developed on 250 m², Schuchovski Arquitetura transformed a broad atmosphere – intended for only two partners and five employees – in a truly warm and welcoming space. The use of wood, the choice of powerful works of art and exemplaries of design furniture (such as Vitra armchairs and Tom Dixon lighting) collaborate in creating such an atmosphere. The project is also characterized by a clean and pure concept, in the essence of minimalism, yet extremely refined with the use of marble and metals.

Inspired by this contemporary home’s sweeping structure, furniture and decor brand Anthropologie curated an elevated selection of streamlined designs, delicate details, and curvilinear seating – all from their Fall 2020 Collection. The goal: gorgeous, graceful rooms that segue seamlessly as you explore. Rooms with stucco, arches and fireplaces do not necessarily need to be furnished with 19th-century furniture or vintage items. You can add bright modern sofas and thin-legged armchairs, turn to handmade ceramics, or add abstract art!!! See also :https://house-diaries.com/at-home-with-athena-calderone-by-zara-home/

Zara Home takes us to a Greek island with its new spring summer 2021 collection “Writing from Hydra”. With a focus on natural materials and tones, it invites us to settle into a beautiful house by the sea, where we can imagine taking a nap in the hottest hours, while a soft breeze stirs the curtains in the bedroom. And then sit down in front of a rough wooden table and write… love letters? A book? All possibilities are open to us… See also :https://house-diaries.com/at-home-with-athena-calderone-by-zara-home/

Greenway Views, designed by Gray Puksand for LDK Healthcare and Cromwell Property, rewrites the book on design for retirement living and aged care – and it strikes a chord. It presents a new standard of senior living – one in which atmospheric health, ageing in place and genuine quality of life prevail. Located in Canberra, the joint venture between LDK Healthcare and Cromwell Property and delivered by FDC Construction and Fitout breathes new life into five buildings, each with two wings, previously occupied by the Federal Government Department of Social Services. As much an exercise in human-centred design as it is a case for adaptive reuse, Gray Puksand’s design champions a resounding connection between place, community and care, while empowering residents with a deserved sense of freedom and dignity that goes unparalleled in the aged care and retirement living sectors. The central philosophy aims to provide a better quality of…

For Three Tavern’s second location, conceived as equal parts brewery and laboratory, the brand new Imaginarium explores the curious nature of craft brewing. Located in the historic Atlanta Dairies adaptive reuse development a mile from downtown, the volume of the selected space was perfect for the requisite large stainless steel brewing tanks. Square Feet Studio’s biggest challenge was working with the small but very tall footprint and accommodating their client’s desire to have more seating than their first brewery. So they designed a mezzanine that allows the beer-making process to be viewed from different vantage points, each offering its own particular experience. Structure for the upper level was carefully coordinated in and around the brewery’s production area to maximize functionality and safety. Each seating area allows for different vignettes and moods, all with little moments of discovery. To complement Three Tavern’s well-loved interpretation of traditional Belgian-style beers, designers embraced a…

Designed by Kiev-based architect Emil Dervish, ED_OFFICE gives us a glimpse of the firm’s creative world, where the magic happens. The building features incredible architectural detailing including high ceilings with beautiful mouldings, tall arched windows and herringbone flooring. A marriage of modern and traditional, I love how the original details and raw finishes contrast with contemporary furniture and lighting.

Here comes a project by the Anarchlab studio, the rehabilitation of a building of Public interest in the historic center of Porto. The intervention building is part of a set of buildings ordered to be built by the Fábrica de Cerâmica das Devesas, in Porto, which functioned as a warehouse and showcase for the various products manufactured at the time by the same company. There are now 12 apartments in the interior, from the loft type with mezzanine to two bedroom apartments, spread over 2 main floors, plus a last one with a smaller area, which constitutes the mezzanines. Organized in the interior through the careful distribution of simple volumes (cabinets, kitchens, bathrooms) of monolithic aspect, such as the stone blocks that populated the warehouse in the bustling activity of the old Ceramics Factory of Devesas, the habitable space becomes if so, the emptiness resulting from the dialogue between these…
