Nacrée by Kengo Kuma

Nacrée is a French restaurant run by a Japanese chef who had worked for Astrance, a restaurant with Michelin’s 3-star rating in Paris. The feature of this space is flowers arranged in cylinders made of wooden bar and acryl. Our aim to cast the artistic flowers at center was to create obscure and gentle air in the space by using an unconventional element of architecture. (more…)

Caro Somerset by Emil Eve Architects

Photographer: Mariell Lind Hansen

Caro Somerset is a new lifestyle store, cafe and b+b in Bruton, Somerset designed by Emil Eve Architects.

The Grade II Listed highstreet property has been extensively reconfigured, refurbished and extended to become a new destination in Bruton, home of Hauser + Wirth and The Chapel. With its low ceilings and doors, uneven walls and floors and original features, the shop and cafe were never going to be slick white designer spaces, neither did we want to over-reveal or strip back and expose surfaces in a ‘shabby-chic’ style. Instead we sought to place flexible furniture pieces into the rooms and to use original elements of the building, such as the fireplaces, niches and deep window reveals for display. Materials and colours were chosen to compliment the existing character of the rooms: shady, welcoming and intimate.

Westbourne Gardens by nimtim architects

Westbourne Gardens is a first-floor apartment within a grand early-Victorian Terrace facing the triangle of Westbourne Gardens in Royal Oak, West London. The flat is only 45 m2 which is less than the current London Housing Design Guide’s minimum for a 1 bedroom flat (50 m2). The existing flat had been divided into 3 long, narrow spaces with a false ceiling and none of the original features exposed.

Amaru by Meme Design

Photographer: Eliza Rosie Tyrall

The philosophy behind this venture is to bring a unique, sensory and high culinary dining experience to Melbourne. The resultant design presents an intimate, artisanal interior, with crafted and natural materials, lending a comfortable, pared-back and zen-like quality to the space. Inspired by the austerity of Spanish design, the focus was on simplicity and restraint of materials. The hand-finished walls and floor are of smooth cement, whilst the original copper-framed windows and doors were complemented by rusty felt drapes –adding warmth and texture.

Mosa: Functional design at its finest

A hotel full of contrasts

 

Interior designer Roger Haan was asked to come up with a distinctive hotel concept. The design needed to incorporate the history of the existing building and the dynamic environment, bring the outside in, create rooms for more than two people, and lead to a scalable product that could be applied in different cities. In addition to this long list of demands, Roger had a condition of his own: he would exclusively work with Mosa tiles. (text by Mosa)

Every day, 180,000 people around the world move to the city. And all those people need a place to live. But with rising demand comes rising rent, making it virtually impossible for young potentials and the middle class to find rental housing that is not only affordable, but also caters to the needs of the modern urban citizen. In a time characterised by flexibility, community and sustainability, the available rentalhousing increasingly fails to meet modern-day demands.
