The Zoersel House, a Bauhaus style home that was ready for tear down was saved and meticulously restored. In 2005 interior architect Arjaan De Feyter and his wife bought the house which was in total decay and ready for demolition. They did a fantastic job breathing new life into this steel structure. The house was literally stripped down the steel frame, only to find parts of the frame were compromised as well. Now this beautiful translucent box serves as a work space and a home.

This Sydney apartment renovation has avery clean rich color palette. The white and black surfaces bring out the deep hues of the wood. I really like all of the textures happening. I am also digging on all of textures happening on the surfaces of this apartment. I don’t know why but I so drawn to the bathroom, so simple and clean.
World Basics, designed by Schemata Architects is certainly a modern minimal retail space. The ceiling height mixed with the walls of glass make for an amazing setting. I find it interesting that the space itself is poised for something super hi-end but its decked out with shelving made of more common materials. I love the fact that there is a guy right there in the store making clothing.
“Basics” is something that keeps renewing itself, according to demands of the society or advancement in technologies.
Based on this concept of “Renewable Basics” we design an exhibition space for the World Basics. The exhibition is held in the lobby of the World building where the reception counter and meeting tables are located. Our design incorporates anonymous elements (such as plants, watering cans, meeting tables etc.) in the exhibition space so that activities of regular business and exhibition will co-exist naturally.
This interior decorators home has me pretty envious. Not one but two DS600 sofas by Ueli Berger for De Sede Switzerland. This is a piece I would love to own some day. Leo & Susan have a fantastic home full of charm and character. The pieces in their home have a wonderfully warn “smile”. More commonly, spaces I like, the walls are all white but some of these walls are black. The warm tones of teak and leather appear more rich when set against the darker surfaces. Make sure to jump over to Coffeeklatch to see more images and read about the space and who owns it.
I never thought I would be featuring a modern mortuary but there is something simple and minimal about this addition to Asker crematorium and chapel, built in the late nineteen fifties. Part of the appeal to me is the color palette consisting mostly of whites, creams and lighter neutral colors. The structure and interiors almost have a monochromatic feel. There are some very interesting details going on as well.
Artistic illustrations, where the two words that came to mind when I first viewed the work of Patryk Hardziej. I love the geometric quality of these characters. The angular lines both give details and tell a magnificent stories. For myself and art, either its an instant attraction or there isn’t, an all or nothing in a way. Patryk’s style instantly struck a cord with me. The people in these illustrations have amazing body posture, how many different stories could one piece tell? I honestly love this style but you probably already know that if you are still reading this.
