Collector’s Loft in New York

UNStudio designed the interior of this loft located in Manhattan that explores the interaction between a gallery and a living space. The existing loft space was characterized by challenging proportions: the space is long and wide, but also rather low. gently flowing curved walls were introduced to virtually divide the main space into proportionally balanced spaces. This created zones of comfortable proportions for domestic use, while simultaneously generating a large amount of wall space for Read more […]

Film & TV Production Offices

Madland Estudio designed the new head offices of a film and TV production company in Madrid.

Balmain House

Carter Williamson Architects designed this house located in Sydney, Australia. Here is the project description: The brief was to bring light into our clients’ home and their lives. Their old home was Victorian, dark and periodically tight and depressing. The original house on the site is an 1860s timber cottage sourced, sawn and constructed from local timber. It was little changed when we got it. A L+EC ruling had virtually made it a heritage item, which came with court-defined planning Read more […]

The colours and textures used to finish the space represent the intentions of the owners; Read more […]

Wexler’s Barbeque Restaurant

Aidlin Darling Design designed the interior of Wexler’s Restaurant composed of a restrained palette of zinc and rift-sawn oak warmed by the honey glow of indirect lighting. Reminiscent of an agrarian heritage, the materials are given an uncharacteristic sense of refinement similar to the cuisine itself. Evocative of smoke and charred wood, a dynamic undulating ceiling installation composed of laser cut MDF fins bridges the gap between old and new by linking the modern insertion to the historic Read more […]
