This great converted factory space is done by British architect William Tozer. I really love the combination of wood and concrete, and seriously envy the large and beautiful windows… And what a nice working space! Via Ideas To Steal.
Hexagonal tiles create different mosaic floors in seven out of eight rooms in this beautiful Italian house. The renovation was done by architects Grooppo, and included only one of the house´s three stories. I seriously envy these floors – and it´s fascinating how one single shape can create such varied patterns based on color and placement! Photos by Anna Positano. Via Dezeen
Found these apartments at Leibal blog. I think they are really inspiring and beautiful, but at the same time they´re almost the opposite of my home. The clean look of these places is wonderful, but I know I could never live like this because I could never keep it tidy and organized for long. I simply have way too much stuff… But it´s still fun to look and be inspired! There are more photos of the projects and many other lovely spaces here at Leibal.
The Berlin home and studio of fashion photographer Magnus Reed is truly amazing; unpolished but so beautiful! I love the light and air, and the room details. The 500sqm apartment is used as both work and living space, and is shared with others for collaboration projects, exhibitions and parties. Read the interesting interview with Reed and see more images over at FreundevonFreunden.
This beautiful house in Japan is designed by Takeshi Hosaka. The roof is divided into a grid system with arches, and because of the translucent acrylic panels the atmosphere changes with the sunlight during the day. The plan of the house is open, but with flexible folding doors to separate the space into smaller private sections.
This autumn Victoria Günzler and I have worked on an exciting project doing furniture and interior work for Kunstnernes Hus, which is one of the biggest contemporary art institutions in Norway. The foundation and gallery is located in an incredible modernist building from 1930, designed by architects Gudolf Blakstad og Herman Munthe-Kaas. Earlier this year the building was actually named Norways most important public building, because of it´s great architecture.
In the entrance hall there is a front desk along with a restaurant and bar, and we were asked to do some work in this area. The room itself is really beautiful, with window bands along the top of all the walls, a characteristic red roof, patterned marble floor, and enormous glass sphere lamps. Our goal was to make the interior of the big space more connected, to add warmth, and to create an atmosphere that encourage people to use the room in a more laid-back and relaxed manner.
They wanted to change the bar counters, but limited time and budget made it necessary to keep the construction and just work on the visual appearance. Our work included designing new covering for the counters, with a composition of big tiles made of white and gray pigmented plywood. We also designed a new wardrobe, a bookshelf on wheels, and bar tables, and chose new sofas and bar stools. It was fantastic to get to work with such an amazing space, and to try to come up with solutions that highlight and underline the existing architecture.
We had the sofabench and barstools reuphostered in “Remix” fabric by Kvadrat, in different shades of grays and black
