With the new interior architecture of the Friedrichstadt Apotheke, a pharmacy close to the famous Friedrichstraße, the Berlin based wiewiorra hopp architekten created a dynamic shop and transparent production facility which is reminiscent of the modern spirit of Berlin’s 1920s and which accentuates the traditional trade of the pharmacist guild.


'House of Trough' by Jun Igarashi Architects, photo by Seiya Miyamato

This ample and well-lit single family home was designed by the Japanese practice Jun Igarashi Architects. Due to its unfavourable location right next to an iron factory there was no need to provide a special view to the surroundings – instead the architect created a broad inward-oriented living area which functions independently from its environment.

A landscape of wine crates, this is the new interior concept for the Zurich wine store Albert Reichmuth, designed by the Swiss studio OOS. Around 1500 crates from majoritarian French wine-growing regions are arranged on walls, floor and ceiling and form the display system as well as some room for storage.
