This curated apartment by Felipe Hess feels so carefully put together. Felipe Hess is no stranger to plastolux as I have featured his work many times and it is easy to see why. The white and wood, I am guessing walnut, in the interiors of this apartment are so well conceived. The two liner lines of walnut, the wall and the floating bank of cabinets elongate the room. In an all white space the wood in these interiors, including the furniture, can make a statement. The bathroom is pretty amazing as well.
The modern pool house can be interpreted and visualized in numerous ideas and configurations. This particular design by Marc Merckx minimal in a dark bruiting sort of way. The black exterior and the gray interiors ad a darkness that can be associated with warmth. The simple box echoes the rectangle shape of the pool. I like how the sitting area opens up to the pool adding an extra place for people to converse and relax. If there were a pool house I could just live in, it might just be this one.
This roof top apartment in Paris is a quaint little place. The interiors are nicely executed and feels larger than it is. A+B KASHA has done an amazing job furnishing the place with some great mid century furniture and design. The kitchen is small but executed beautifully. I could see utilizing this as a weekend house or just a place to take off for the weekend. The Mantis Floor Lamp by Rispal steals the show for me, sculpture meets lighting, beautiful!.
Modern steel and concrete house by McLaren Excell has so many beautiful raw surfaces and textures going on. The concrete work in this house is simply stunning. What are your opinions on concrete and this much of it? You take the weathered steel, concrete and all the natural woods make for one very beautiful house. It has a modern industrial look and feel but the precision and craftsmanship are what sets this project apart. I also like the juxtaposition of the new architecture mixed with the old.
This modern Scandinavian apartment in Hamburg Germany is a lovely palette of black white and wood tones. The one element that I like is the VIPP kitchen. I am always appreciated the sleek minimal approach to their design. The apartment also has some nice concrete beams running through the ceiling which is a bonus architectural element in my book. Most people aren’t really into this old school parquet wood flooring but it works nicely here. I would like to see some shaggy sheep skins or something a little more wooly around to give a little more warmth.
Casa Laura by Felipe Hess is just another wonderful example of the architecture that is produced by the firm. Based in São Paulo Brazil, there structures always meld with the landscape that the architecture occupies. The tropical feel of the lush landscape found around the grounds is a great connector to nature. The stone wall that runs the exterior and interior planes that bridge of inside and outside. I am quite fond of the mid century Brazilian designers and you can always find a few pieces in Hess’s projects. The sink in the bathroom, I think concrete, is a geometric marvel.
