Taking the “forest, lake and meadow” philosophy of the gastronomy of PM & Vänner as the starting point, the ambition was to work with this concept to create a destination that felt cosmopolitan, while remaining deeply rooted in its surroundings. (text by Jonas Lindvall)

The plot is located in the historical city centre of Granollers and placed into an urban fabric of dwellings between party walls. The available space is narrow and elongated, only 6.5 m wide; and accessible from two streets. Owing to the dilapidated state of the existing building, only the main façade, reasonably well preserved offering a certain heritage value, could be maintained. (text by HARQUITECTES)

The House for Markétka by Mjölk architekti, photo: BoysPlayNice

The house for Marketka is a few months old and it evokes feelings. Visitors of the generous interior space find it difficult to understand. They don’t understand a nine meter high living room, always saying why not rather add more rooms and why are there are so many stairs in the house. It’s hard to explain because the feeling is not transferable. It’s just because of beauty. (text by Mjölk architekti)

The luxury or category of Casa CML was given not necessarily by using expensive features, but by the use of a reduced palette of natural materials rather than industrial products. Ricardo Torrejón, Arturo Chadwick invested in quality space: overall interior height, integrated rooms, and the contrast between immediate surrounding and distant views towards the geographical context.

Aesop’s second German signature store opened recently in Stuttgart’s Breuninger department store. The design directive ‘black but not dark’ – inspired by the works of French painter Pierre Soulages – prompted a palette of muted greys balanced with off-white hues that subtly complement, in shade and configuration, the brand’s distinctive product labels. Accents of brass, leather, wood and felt temper the restrained aesthetic with warmth and textural variation. (text by Einszu33)
