The property covers an area of 3800 square feet and its construction was carried out in 2016. The house was conceived as two different residences, each formed in a linear bar that contains the complete program of a home. The parents’ suite occupies the ground floor with the living room and the dining room. The suite is presented as an accessible one-story apartment with additional features to adapt to the specific challenges faced by aging parents.

House for a Small Family with Spaces Full of Natural Light

By • May 28, 2018

This house was designed for a small family by the architectural firm IDIN Architects, led by the architects Jeravej Hongsakul, Wichan Kongnok and Eakgaluk Sirijariyawat. The home was completed in 2017, and is located in Thailand.

It has a total area of 530 square meters in which there are 3 rooms, including a main room and two rooms for guests or their future children.

There were two other requirements that the client felt were important during the designing process of the home. Firstly, they wanted a large common social area, where the owners would always meet with their friends, something very usual in the lifestyle of the new generation. On the other hand, their privacy was also an important factor they wished to incorporate into the home. As such, the house had to be spacious, full of natural light, and still maintain privacy.

Hip Bed and Breadfast Designed by ARCHIMED PROGETTAZIONI

By • May 18, 2018

This hip bed and breakfast was designed by the Italian architectural firm ARCHIMED PROGETTAZIONI Architetti Associati in 2017. It is called “L’Officina di Apollo,” or “Apollo’s Office,” and it is located in Palermo, a city in the autonomous region of Sicily, in Southern Italy.

Kitchen in yellow and black metal bases

The interior makes use of a yellowed-wood motif throughout the different areas of the bed in breakfast in order to create continuity, putting it to use as tabletops and cabinet doors in the kitchen and dining room, on the walls, as headboards and footboards for the beds in the bedrooms, and as additional surfaces in the bathrooms. The skeleton of all furnishings and details is done in black, forged iron, adding to this sense of continuity as well as granting the spaces a sense of the industrial. Simple light fixtures hanging from the ceiling with black wires and ending in a naked light bulb continue this same trend.

Colorful and trendy pieces of contemporary art decorate the walls, adding an extra touch of vibrancy to the spaces, as well as a bit of culture. By contrast, the bedding in all bedrooms is done in earthy and neutral tones, creating a sense of peace and serenity for these special places.

MY Group Architecture Designs an Elegant Home in Morocco

By • May 14, 2018

This elegant house, done in a contemporary style, covers an area of 700 square meters and was designed by the architectural firm MY Group Architecture. The project was completed in 2017. It is located in Dar Essalam, a new luxury suburb in Rabat, Morocco.

The design was focused on creating an open area full of light with a very clear separation between the private and public areas, as well as employing a very modern architectural style. The villa consists of three levels where the architects’ main goal was to create a wide and functional space.

The ground floor contains the reception area, as well as a kitchen, a guest room, and an integrated bathroom. There is a smart mix between a modern and traditional Moroccan style in the living room, which stands alongside a glass wall leading to the swimming pool. This allows natural light to seep into the room, flooding the entire space.

On the second floor we find two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a parental suite. The underground level contains a wet kitchen, a bar, and a multi-purpose area which opens on a courtyard. The villa is surrounded by a beautiful garden of typical vegetation, with tall palm trees that shelter the place and the entrance, giving shade and providing privacy for the swimming pool area.

Monochromatic Apartment Located in Vilnius, Lithuania

By • May 11, 2018

This monochrome apartment, which covers an area of only 50 square meters, was designed by Aida Šniraitė, owner of the interior designer firm “Authentic Interior.” It is located in Vilnius, Lithuania. Vilnius is the capital and most populated city of Lithuania, located in the homonymous province. The city lies to the southeast of the country, about 30 km from the border with Belarus.

Apartment interior in gray and black tones

The apartment was designed for a single woman with strong tastes for industrial and urban US design, but with quite a limited budget. It has very unusual color combinations for what is the more traditional Lithuanian style, with black doors and plinths, original concrete ceilings or black furniture. Inspired by industrial and urban US living, concrete, bricks, metal have been used throughout. The apartment is divided into a living area of 30 square meters, a big shower of 6 square meters, and a bedroom of 14 square meters.

Due to its small size, some intelligent solutions have been used that have made it possible to maximize the tiny spaces. Large mirrors have been installed in the closets, so that the light is reflected, creating a more luminous atmosphere and, at the same time, giving us a visual sense of spaciousness.

Elegant and Cozy Space for Coffee Lovers

By • May 7, 2018

The main objective of this project was to create an elegant and welcoming space, presenting a personal style of western/oriental fusion, combining characteristics of the interiors of southern Italy and the countries of Southeast Asia. The design adapts to the personality of the owner, a woman of good taste, a lover of traveling and coffee.

Spectacular service area

The project, which consists of 172 square meters, was entrusted to the architecture firm FAR OFFICE, headed by architects Giovanni Ferrara, Victor Cao, Xin Hong and Si Song, in the year 2017 in the city of Changsha Shi, Hunan Sheng, China .

Modern and elegant details
Decorative detail in wood

The original design is narrow and mostly developed in length, with a considerable lack of natural lighting in the lower area. This was a challenge when it came to organizing the space properly. Because of this, they decided to locate a living room in the lower part of the plot, in the darkest area. To give light to the dark space, many hanging lamps were placed, which fall from a square bamboo ceiling as the centerpiec. As a result, the weakest point was changed. This entices visitors to sit down and find a comfortable place in an area that would otherwise be vacant.

A Pleasant Place as a Couple’s Refuge”

By • Apr 27, 2018

A couple of fashion designers felt a powerful attraction for this construction and, thinking that they could enjoy a pleasant life-style in this place, decided to build their new nest here, so to speak! It was love at first sight, from the different recreational options offered by the area, to the pleasant spaces where they knew they could enjoy a pleasant walk with their cute dog.

The architecture firm Cho and Partners, led by its team of excellent professionals Hyeonjin Cho, Haewook Jeong and Kyuhwan Kim, were in charge of carrying out this significant project in 2017. It is located in Yeonnam-dong, South Korea and has an area of 277 square meters.

The couple, whose children have all moved out to start their own lives away from the nest, wanted to have a set-up where the living room and the bedroom were united instead of making them each separate spaces. Their goal was to make the entire house feel closer to itself, eliminating any unnecessary barriers that could stand between them.  To carry out this unique idea, an equally unique space was made taking one space and creating two rooms by placing one of them (the bedroom) above the other (the living room).

The culinary roots of Kadeau Copenhagen are found on the small Danish island of Bornholm, in the Baltic Sea.
