Barcelona Winner

This stunning apartment in Barrio Gotico, Barcelona by British firm David Kohn Architects has recently won World Interior of the Year in Singapore.

The POD

Although I have never stayed in a pod-style hotel there is certainly something that is rather cool about them. Is it the voyeuristic open end of each pod or just the simplicity of the idea a place to rest without the all bells and whistles that come with hotels. What ever the reason Pod style hotels are a hot trend especially in Singapore in contemporary...

The building represents one of the suburb’s largest residential gentrification projects along the famed Smith Street shopping strip. Custom creating five...

SQUAT a designer collaboration

Collaborations between designers always push the boundaries and processes of the individuals involved, usually towards an exciting outcome. It’s no wonder then that when different design firms across three different disciplines joined forces late last year the result was quite remarkable. Squat #1 is a collaborative effort between Nilufar Gallery, Dimore Studio and Balice Hertling in the heart of Paris and brings together the expertise...
