This modern restaurant with serene and elegant ambiences is located in Lisbon, Portugal. Its purpose is to pay tribute to traditional Japanese cuisine, a purpose that falls on the shoulders of passionate chef Takashi Yoshitake, who puts all of his care into his work each and every day.
Designed as an intimate and minimalist space meant to function as club-restaurant and sake bar, it uses sliding panels and translucent fiber screens for greater flexibility and privacy.
Those responsible for carrying out this special project were the architects Paulo Martins Barata, João Luís Ferreira, Paulo Perloiro, Pedro Appleton and João Perloiro, belonging to the architecture firm PROMONTORIO, who in 2015 got down to work and developed a fantastic project in the available 120 meters, full of professionalism and good taste.
The green bamboo marble countertops, the wall cladding and the display shelves are combined with the exposed kitchen areas in glass, hand-made tiles and mirrored glass partitions. The custom furniture is also in solid walnut with leather upholstery, as well as in the large central table and Japanese style floor chairs.

D’Entrecasteaux House is a private residence designed by the Hobart based architectural firm Room11 Architects in 2016. The home is located on Bruny Island, which is part of Kingborough Council, in Australia, and covers a total ground area of 220 square meters.
Bruny Island is characterized by its vast and beautiful landscape, surrounded as it is by the D’Entrecasteaux Channel, which separates it from the Tasmanian mainland. A remote location, being only accessible by boat, Bruny Island is a traditional holiday destination for those who call Hobart home.
The clients are a professional couple who approached the architectural firm after purchasing the land with the intention of commissioning the construction of a permanent residence. They already had experience with the island’s climate, as their family members own adjacent properties, so that they were aware of the fact that the architecture had to reconcile their desires to have a home that was luminous and that enjoyed a good view with the need to be protected from offshore winds and glare from the water plane of the channel. Additionally, the remote nature of the home meant that it needed to be solid and contained in order to counter its isolating effect upon the human psyche.

This old building, dating back to 1870, has been recently remodeled by the firm Renovation, Design & Interior: Stefaan Van Dyck & Kathleen Cassiers, in the city of Antwerp, Belgium. The remodeling, which began in 2016, ended just a year later in 2017, resulting in a spectacular job full of good taste.
The restoration was based mostly on the original elements such as oak wood ceilings, old mosaic floor and some of the characteristic wooden stairs. The street on which it is located is picturesque and very famous for its fashion, culture, diamonds and chocolate.
It has five floors that can only be accessed by stairs and where up to 10 people can be accommodated.
On the ground floor there is a private cafe-bistro style dining room and a kitchen with plenty of modern appliances, while the cozy living room with a fireplace and a sophisticated flat screen TV is located on the third floor.
The rooms are located on the first, second and last floor. The rooms on the first and second floor have two bunk beds, plus the extra-large double bed. All rooms have a large hanging area of open cupboards and shelves as well as bathroom and toilet.
José Juan Rivera Río, lead architect at JJRR/Arquitectura, an architectural firm based in Mexico City, designed Ramos House in 2017. The private residence, built with a triangular shape, covers a total ground area of 540 square meters and is located in Mexico City, Mexico.
The home’s landscaping program is lush and verdant, granting a bit of green to an otherwise gray concrete façade, with vines climbing onto its walls and plants overflowing from plant pots at different levels of the outside walls. The interior is sober and elegant, with the exterior concrete walls continuing inward and contrasting with the rich wooden floors of the living and dining rooms. A round marble dining room table sits surrounded by chairs, their metal woven into a check pattern.
The home is, in its entirety, distributed across three levels. A basement takes advantage of the unevenness of the terrain and holds the parking and service areas under the house and garden. The first level holds the social areas — the living room, kitchen, and dining room, all at the same level as the garden, which gives them the privileged option to enjoy it. The second level holds the bedrooms, and is back leaning, which serves to give the front façade an air of lightness.

This modern and elegant restaurant is located in the city of Nashville, Tennessee, in the United States. Its design, the work of architectural firm Design, Bitches, evokes the “old school of Miami” in a new setting, this restaurant in Nashville, using pastel colors and lots of natural light, transforming the space from dark to bright.
To achieve this, the opaque facade was replaced by an extension of glass, and the other part of the ceiling was raised so that the windows could allow more light to flow inside.
The aesthetic that unites the different sections of the long space goes back to the colors and art styles found in South Beach, Miami.
In the front, a bench with coral-colored upholstery in a royal style is accompanied by a row of small tables topped with pink Tennessee marble. These face the bar, which is cork-covered around the base and topped by a marble counter.
The white lamps hang from the ceiling, while the shelves have a gold mirror in the back to reflect the liquor bottles. The same tinted mirror is used on the walls along the narrow space, where the informal seating gives way to the leather-covered cabins along the wall.

This fabulous house located in the city of Valencia, Spain, has wonderful views over the sea, which makes it even more attractive. It was designed by the Singular Studio architectural firm in 2016, and its development was lead by a team of architects consisting of José Moragues, Dionís Henarejos, and the interior designer Guste Kancaite.
It has an area of 200 square meters and was born of a visit to the country of origin of the owners of the house. They sought to emulate the architectural tradition of Soviet brutalism that historically has been so present in the life of the owners.
They wanted to establish clear distinctions between what the house itself should be, and what it should be in conjunction with its location (in this case, an impressive natural landscape). Thus, the project became a mix of ideas that each serve to solve different needs.
One of the main challenges was to provide the house with the maximum possible privacy without blocking the exceptional sea views. Therefore, after assessing the variables of access, orientation, views, bioclimatic invariables, privacy and the steep slope of the plot, a layout was created. The resulting plan has an “L” shape, where the northeastern facade is made up of a large window that becomes a viewpoint to the sea, and the rest of the facades are opaque, as they are made of pure concrete, which ensures the owners have the privacy necessary to remain comfortable. In addition, and thanks to the contraposition of openings, the thermal mass, solar protections, and the detailed study of the shadows, a remarkably energy-efficient model was achieved.

Beam House is a project designed by Hugo Kohno Architect Associates, a Japanese architectural firm based in Tokyo. The home, completed in 2017, covers a total ground area of 121 square meters, and is located in Tokyo, Japan.
The building houses a gallery on the first floor and a residence on the second and third floors. The gallery has a glass façade, by request of the client, in order to allow good visibility from the street. A separate entrance leads into the second floor, separating the residential area from the gallery, thus preserving its privacy. The home was a typical wood frame structure, so that many walls were necessary between the beams of the lower floor in order to hold the heavy load of the entire building aloft. This lead to a thorough partitioning of the ground floor space. The use of a wooden portal style Rahmen frame toward the front of the building solved this problem, so that the space could be opened up, which allows for an easier flow of air and light.
As a result, the interior is open and luminous, with a style that is both richly elegant and warmly inviting. A roof terrace provides the perfect space in which to host gatherings with friends and family.

This remodeling carried out in two apartments to make it a more spacious and comfortable family home was carried out by the architectural firm CHAO and led by its architects Adriano Carneiro de Mendonça and Antonio Pedro Coutinho, in the city of Alto Leblon, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in the year 2013.
The area that has 210 square meters has spacious and open spaces where its different sections coexist in perfect harmony. The apartment has no clearly defined functional corridors or separations; all of the facilities are arranged around the large bright room. The open plan reveals the original structure of the building, left in apparent concrete.
The two unified apartments became a generous social space that houses all the family activities. The rooms and the kitchen were organized around this space in a relaxed layout, without clear corridors or functional separations.
Located on a hill in the famous city, the house is decorated with traditional objects of Brazilian design and allows a relaxing view of the sea and the surrounding area.
The wooden shelves and the collection that brings together classical and modern pieces of Brazilian design create a familiar and cozy atmosphere.
Have you ever considered staying in a bunker? Well then this post is for you! Located in the city of Hamburg, Germany, this space promises a private and relaxed atmosphere after an arduous day of work in the city and surrounded by the luxury you can find in your own home.
The bunker in Bülowstrasse was built in 1939 when the Second World War began. The original objective was to protect the hospital for women and children on the other side of the street, but a last-minute decision made it into part of the hospital. Through a tunnel, the Bunker was connected to the hospital and, during the war, the bunker served as the perfect refuge for newborns and their mothers, in addition to offering quiet operating rooms for the sick and injured.
For many years after the war, the Bunker abandoned itself to its own destiny, which turned out to be for two young local developers, who had been looking for the perfect project for quite some time.
The renovation and reinvention of the Bunker began in 2013. Due to the nature of the building, the repair and reconstruction process was slow and meticulous.
The structure was renovated and reused, creating an interior design with a contemporary style.

This wonderful house, with an interior space occupying 250 square meters, is located in an area of large green areas in Itatiba, a city near the capital of São Paulo. It was built as an investment plan by a couple of clients looking for a house full of light and with natural ventilation.
In this large area of 1,150 square meters, the architectural studio Rassini Arquitetura developed this marvelous project. Inspired by the Mies Van Der Rohe Pavilion, located in the city of Barcelona, the architect large glass panels. These contribute heavily to the flow of natural light. Additionally, natural vegetation is present in all of the rooms of the home. In addition to this, the residence brings another premise requested by the owners: the integration between internal and external environments. For them, the house had to be clear and comfortable, neither small nor large, easy to maintain, and built with high-finish materials.
The architect Felipe Rassini got to work and presented a first solution to the client, a 6x3m module and from it, the living room, dining room, kitchen and bedrooms arose.
All of the home’s environments were arranged in such a way that natural light could always be the protagonist.
After verifying the construction, the couple, that until then had focused on using the house as an investment, decided to keep it as their property.
This wonderful house of a rustic style is located in Salento, near Salve in Italy, a few kilometers from the sea. It is a place to escape from the boring routine of life, immersed in the countryside and in the middle of nature, with millenary olive trees and maritime pines, surrounded by one of the world’s most beautiful landscapes.
It was designed in 2014 by the interior design studio Iosa Ghini Associati. In a unique Mediterranean environment, and in harmony with the surrounding marine landscape, Massimo Iosa Ghini has chosen to build a new house that integrates it with the very land, adopting techniques and materials suggested by local craftsmen and builders.
Arranged in a single level and in an extension of more or less than one hectare, the project respects the existing vegetation.
A large living room of six meters in length, facing south, merges with the kitchen and dining area and becomes the family gathering place, surrounded by four rooms with their own lobbies and bathrooms.
The large windows look outwards and are designed as a natural continuation of the interior space, with the external areas facing the terraces designed as a meeting place with armchairs, and underline the constant relationship between exterior and interior spaces.

This modern structure of open spaces and full of natural light was designed by the architectural firm LEVER Architecture, led by its architects Thomas Robinson, Michael Gross, and Scott Miller, in the city of Newberg, Oregon, United States, in 2016.
This new family-owned winery had the objective of creating a kind of tasting room that would reflect the family’s approach to winemaking. Inspired by the wide oak trees native to Oregon that populate the valley, two cantilevered roof structures intertwine at the point of arrival in the tasting room.
The public space opens to the vineyard and valley to the north, south and east with a structural system of wood and glass. Two large sliding doors centered in the bar of the tasting room take the vineyard into space, but also serve as a passive cooling system in the summer when used with the openings in the upper window.
The interior presents a discreet and simple approach made of polished concrete, exposed wood and a modern fireplace made of concrete, as well as glass walls that allow the interior to melt with the outside or vice versa in an attempt to keep them connected.
This house of 80 square meters was designed in 2017 by the architects Joaquin Juberías and Víctor Cano Ciborro in the city of Valencia, in Spain.The purpose of said property was to serve as a rental space. Due to environment required for activities linked with long summers rather than day-to-day living, this project became a property that directly deals with those issues, resulting in a space that focuses on a lively and uniquely active lifestyle. That is why they have created changing spaces that may surprise the temporary inhabitant, and that may be useful during the usually short period of their stay.
Located in a particularly old building complex, with beautiful staircases with contoured railings and vaulted ceilings of old bricks, a striking contrast was created in the modern interior, where the old red brick walls, clashing marvelously with the white used both on walls and in the furniture.
We can clearly perceive the effects produced by the reflection in the mirror or by the sensation produced by the bathroom, designed with a green-colored ceramic, with a brightness that thoroughly spreads throughout the different spaces. This is also accompanied by actions such as opening enormous doors, or climbing a light–metal staircase that expands our spatial perception.

Located in the Fashion Capital, Milan, Italy, this construction, an old factory dating from 1915, has been transformed and adapted to serve as the headquarters of the Gucci firm in the city of Milan. The abandoned industrial warehouses, which have an area of 30,000 square feet, were redeveloped in 2012 and currently serves as the venue for events and fashion shows of the firm.
The new six-story tower, which interacts closely with the old buildings, stands out within the area of the site. Covered with a regular pattern of sunscreens, the new building breaks the symmetry of the site and generates a powerful chromatic relationship with the exposed red bricks of the low-level warehouse. The pedestrian paths run between the buildings, which are mainly on the ground floor, in a sequence of solid structures and empty spaces in which landscaping plays a key role.
The large complex, which houses offices and a showroom also has spaces dedicated to graphic design within Gucci, a canteen and a restaurant.
The large plaza, surrounded by exposed brick walls, is animated by carefully placed trees, while a thick linden wood gives the project a distinctive “green” feel, focusing on sustainable design.

This hotel, located in the town of Deqing Xian, Huzhou, Zhejiang, China, has an area of 1491 square meters. It was designed in 2017 by the architectural firm Naturalbuild under the direction of its architecture professionals Yanfei Shui, Yichi Su, Yuanrong Ma, Dan Deng and Hanhua Xu. It is tucked into the southwest corner of a silkworm farm previously owned by the state in Yucun, Moganshan, Zhejiang province.
The design is limited and also motivated by both the dynamic present and unpredictable perspectives. The strategy of interiorizing the landscape not only establishes a gesture of defense against the unfavorable conditions of the environment, but also converts the saturated interior space into part of the landscape.
Most rooms are in the southern part of the main building to get enough sunlight as well as to have panoramic views of the garden. At the west end, there is an outside gallery and a pool, which frame the main entrance and create a perimeter that cushions the site from the main road.
Along with the main building, an outer gallery formed by columns forms an open patio area that only serves hotel guests. As for the construction on the east end, it is an independent and isolated villa that can be rented to a whole family.

This house is the weekend refuge of a family of four, although they are thinking of making it their main residence in the near future. It is located in the town of Corroios, Portugal, on the top of a gentle slope and surrounded by wild vegetation.
In 2015, the architectural firm CSAA, led by its professionals Sofia Saraiva and Vasco Cabral, got down to work and designed this fabulous residence that today has three well-defined functional areas, a social area, a service area and a private area. All of this was aptly designed to fit within a 240 square meter space.
In terms of concept, it was intended to create a home with urban interior features and finishes, which could be integrated into the rural and more traditional context of the rural area in which it is located.
Designed to be a single-story dwelling, it allows a calm and serene coexistence with the environment in which it is located, and which is derived from the privileged relationship between the interior and the exterior.
The L-shaped volumetric arrangement allows the separation of outdoor areas, organizing it according to the degree of privacy desired in the house.
On the east side of the house, next to the entrance, from the outside, a covered area was created leading up to the home. This allows the parking of cars and, because it is a more exposed area, it has a less private feeling to it.

Window on the Lake is a project completed by the Canadian architectural firm YH2, which is based in Montréal, in 2017. The home covers a total ground area of 140 square meters and sits on the shore of Lac Plaisant, located in Saint Élie de Caxton, in the Mauricie region of Québec, Canada.
The architectural firm’s intention when it came to the design of this home, which sits on a site previously occupied by an old family cottage, was to create a simple wooden dwelling which was open to nature and the peaceful lake beside it. As a result, the home perfectly embodies the essence of cottage life — a wooden home in which to spend restful moments and be at one with nature.
The home sits in a small clearing and is composed of a single structure made out of white cedar wood. Such simplicity is precisely what cottage life is about, and YH2 expresses this through their architecture in a subtle and elegant way. The home’s walls, however, are pierced by clear glass sections which allow an easy rapport between the interior and the exterior, blending the boundaries between them. This also allows an abundant supply of natural light to seep into the interior, making it luminous and cozy.
