Located south of Perth Australia at Margaret River sits a family home designed by Italian...

Sunday dreaming …

If I could plan my perfect Sunday I would start with the lush green velvet sofa and epic bookcase that feature in this stunningly simple interior by Anne Sophie Goneau of Montreal. The apartment is a classic study in contrasting the raw elements of a building with slick joinery and refined design. In an interior that is almost exclusively crisp white the kitchen cuts a strong...

Signature Style

An interior designer’s own home really is their signature. Here, in the home of Fabrice Ausset, this is certainly the case! In his own home, Ausset was able to literally do whatever he liked and knowing exactly what he wanted he set about amassing an incredible collection of furniture and objects and creating a home that was as much about restraint as it was about...

Zaha Hadid Heydar Aliyev Centre

What’s not to love about Zaha Hadid and the recently completed Heydar Aliyev Centre in Baku, Azerbaijan.  Making a stark departure from the rigid and often monumental architecture of the former Soviet Union that is so prevalent in Baku Zaha Hadid architects set out to create fluid architecture with continuous calligraphic scripts and patterning of historical Islamic architecture that flow from carpets to walls, walls...

Standing on the street looking in, it appears that the store has been injected into the building with sections of...

Moving Around

Bookshelves: check. Plywood: yes, please. A splash of colour: done. Adorable pooch: Absolutely! This apartment is like a throwback to all I ever wanted from a place in my early twenties….but executed far better than I could have imagined. Young Ukrainian architect, Alex Bykov has completed this project around the central idea of movement: namely the flow of traffic around the central point of the kitchen,...

What’s a Shoffice?

What do you get if you combine a (shed + office) = Shoffice. A garden pavilion containing a small office alongside garden storage space located to the rear of a 1950's terraced house in St John’s Wood with the brief requiring the shoffice to be conceived of as a sculptural object that flowed into the garden space. The glazed office space nestles into an extruded timber...

The X Factor

The X House designed by Cadaval & Sola-Morales is perched high on the upper part of a hill in Cabrils, on the outskirts of Barcelona Spain. The project aim of the X was to solve having to decide which view to take in, the sea, or the mountains? Allowing both visions in opposite directions whist isolating the view from the neighbouring properties. The site, with...
