Abella Babin bedroom, July 26th , 2017. Stuart Hughes, the extravagant British design studio from Liverpool, is striking again. After pimping lots of gadgets with luxury materials, they have now teamed with HEBANON by F.lli Basile Interiors of Nocera Superiore Italy to create the world’s most exclusive bed . Dubbed Baldacchino Supreme, the lacquered, patinated and sponge batted bed and canopy, has been handmade built to incorporate nothing less than 107 kg of solid 24ct gold along with small decorative applications in gold leaf detail, headboard in capitonnè.
Adolpha Dieter interior, July 28th , 2017. Oversized accessories often make a room more interesting. This can be applied to a lot of things, including artwork, light fixtures, furniture and numerous decorations. A large painting displayed on one of the walls in your living room will create an interesting focal point for the space. You can use this strategy to direct the attention toward key elements and parts of the room. For example, display an oversized pendant lamp above the dining table to draw the attention to that specific spot, diminishing the visual impact of everything else around.
Julian Achterop kitchen, July 26th , 2017. Take your organizing skills to the next level by adding some hidden compartments! The outgoing mail, cookbooks, recipe cards, shopping lists and everything in between can fit right inside and stay off the counters, making for a cleaned and revived kitchen! We love mixing compartments too. A vase, bread basket and even a serving tray can all come together to create a perfect place to organize your spices and most used ingredients, as well as utensils! Use whatever you like to organize, but keep within a monochromatic theme. This will enhacen the clean and fresh vibe but also give your kitchen a contemporary, fashion-forward air about it as well.
Adal Arbeit kitchen, July 29th , 2017. Install a metal bar directly under your cabinets and throw on some S-hooks – viola! You’ve just freed up a couple of “miscellaneous” drawers. You know the ones – the ones that are so full with oddly shaped items that they’re hard to open and, once open, it takes a while to find the item you actually need. I love how this idea can integrate easily into any style of kitchen. Taking two minutes to install a tension curtain rod in a kitchen cupboard (think: under the kitchen sink) will reap major rewards when you find you now have an organized, sanitary place for your kitchen cleaner spray bottles. You could even use the rod to drape cleaning cloths so you have everything in the same place for some quick cleanup.
Adaliz Bader exterior, July 28th , 2017. This house from Brissago, Switzerland looks incredibly simple, like a concrete monolith with cut out windows from place to place. It looks as if it’s been on that slope all along and only recently carved into a home. It’s a great look managed by Wespi de Meuron Romeo Architects. Because it sits on a steep slope, the houses has the entrance on the top floor and the parking lot up on the roof level. Its raw concrete facades are minimalist and intriguing and the interior matches this look.
Adolpha Dieter exterior, July 28th , 2017. Would a concrete house look out of place in a forest clearing or on a plot where the only neighbors are the trees and grass? Well, yes and no. Look at Konieczny’s Ark, a project developed by KWK Promes in Krakow, Poland. It’s a house that was shaped by the site on which it stands in the sense that given the remoteness of the site, security was an issue so the architects found a clever solution: to design the house in such a way that only one corner touches the ground while the rest of the building hands over the edge of the hill. This solution also reduced the risk of landslide as rain water flown naturally under the house. So, you see, even if this concrete box doesn’t really seem to blend in at first, it’s actually very well adapted to its location.
Julian Achterop exterior, July 28th , 2017. The street facade is covered in fireproof timber and has a very understated and simple look. There’s a small private courtyard in front, sort of like a buffer zone between the internal spaces and the street. The wood on the facade is stained and has a rich finish which contrasts with the galvanized steel elements. The North facade, the one facing the river, has a totally different structure. This is an all glass facade which doesn’t exactly give much privacy but, at the same time, exposes the internal spaces to the expansive views. The glass also contributes to an overall look that’s robust on one hand but also open and airy on the other hand. Such contrasts are actually quite common with this project.
Julian Achterop bedroom, July 26th , 2017. A step in the direction of creating lighter, airier, more ethereal design ideas, the Mariposa Headboard reduces an often overlooked or not directly considered piece of furniture to a thin sheet of methacrylate material, cut in the shape of wings and illuminated in subtle patterns with soft LED lighting. Named after the Spanish word for “Butterfly”, it looks feminine and delicate, glowing softly and dreamy, as only appropriate for a sleep alcove. A wonderful addition to a feminine contemporary bedroom, the Mariposa bed headboard inspires transparency and surrealism.
Lucas Abelen exterior, July 28th , 2017. For a house that tries to close itself off as much as possible in respect to the street and the neighbors, this family home has surprisingly open spaces and facades. This unusual combination was achieved by moarqs + OTTOLENGHI architects by combining two contrasting materials: concrete and glass. The design strategy was to have a more open ground floor while the first floor is closed and private. Both floors have full-height glass walls but the difference is that there’s a concrete shell which wraps around the upper floor, framing the spaces and blocking the views but at the same time allowing them to be fully open to the courtyard.
Adal Arbeit exterior, July 28th , 2017. You’d think that a concrete house wouldn’t have much in common with nature but you’d be wrong. Just look at this gorgeous retreat in South Korea. The U Retreat was designed by IDMM architects on a steep site overlooking a sharp vertical cliff and nature and the surroundings had a lot to do with its unique design. The forms of the cliff and the trees that surround the building were inspiration for the forms and layouts that define the concrete structure.
