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)

The project, designed by Andrea Marcante (founder of UdA architetti) and Adelaide Testa, involves the restructuring of a 180 m² apartment in Paris for Isis Colombe Combréas, the managing director and editor-in-chief of the magazines MilK and MilK decoration, her husband the photographer Karel Balas, and two children Hiroko and Aliocha. The apartment is located in a 1930s property in the northern XIV arrondissement bordering on Saint Germain.

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.

From a context of accrued simple shed-esk dwellings in an isolated and south facing New Zealand coastal surf community, a strategy of sequencing building ‘sets’ (aka surf) was generated to scale new form to its surrounds. New ‘shed’ sets are then offset to allow seasonal living, circulation, and privacy options and for variations in wind and sun exposure.

Charlotte Road is a collection of 9 high-end apartments in Hackney by Emil Eve Architects.
Five interlinked Victorian warehouses have been reconfigured and refurbished and a large roof terrace created. Original features such as glazed brickwork, exposed timber structures and historic ‘quirks’ have been retained and restored. Contemporary detailing compliments these elements of the building’s industrial past to create warm and welcoming interiors with a palette of rich textures and materials. The two-bedroom loft apartment features a large open-plan living and dining area, floor to ceiling oak bookshelves, a new library mezzanine and simple contemporary bathroom and kitchen.

Kwerk Coworking by Albert Angel
Kwerk opus II, fresh from its conquest of Paris, is undoubtedly the best workplace around. With its offices, chairs and private workspaces for two, three, five and eight people; its seated and standing tables, high-speed Wi-Fi network, plug sockets, coffee machines and kitchens on each floor; its multiple terraces, 24/7 access for members, conference rooms and scanner-photocopiers, Kwerk has everything you could wish for in a co-working space. But above all, Kwerk is a place of exceptional inspiration.

PRINCIPAL DESIGN CHALLENGE & RESOLUTION
The principal challenge was to provide our clients with a bright, playful and inviting pediatric dental clinic that would stand in contrast to traditional heath care design. Located in a former porcelain tile factory, the space has an industrial history, which we strove to maintain while adding warmth. Exposed concrete, pops of vibrant yellow, Douglas Fir accents and recycled rubber/cork flooring allowed us to achieve this balance.
