I’ve never imagined a building used to storage hay and grain can actually become a house for the people. The client EXIT Studio worked for wasn’t sophisticated at all. In fact, the project is a demonstration of  ‘back to basic’ principles: raw materials, straight lines, lack of ornaments, minimalist design, fundamental architecture.      

The house is situated above the sea and the architect wanted to reflect this quality letting the light inside to flood all the rooms.  The color touch is minimal for the rooms of the house that aimed to be a representation of the outside landscape itself. The color scheme is varied with grey and black, there is a little bit blue. The interior is modern, very elegant and stylish; via   suinterioristes.com

The house was built between 2006-2007 in Dumbravita, Timis county, Romania by Adam Architecture Studio. For me, this is an example of ‘less is more’, proving the extraordinary mechanism of realizing it in the same time. Anyone who claims minimalism in  interior design is a matter of simplicity is missing the point: the challenge of keeping things ‘simple’ is actually exceedingly complex – particularly as applied to bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and other building spaces with those nagging programmatic necessities like […]

What do you know about pixels?  That they represent the smallest element of an image that can be individually processed in a video display system. The visual display units were used as decorative screens by Astral Media after its relocation in spring of 2010. Based on the client’s four different business units (radio, television, advertising and digital media), their concept was inspired by key broadcasting industry words such as influence, communication, movement and exchange.

Lior N°2 is a lamp with minimalistic forms and lines that transforms and changes when scratched, creating a dissonance in the original form, never similar to any other. That’s the best way to have ‘something different’ in your room, all the time. The problem is … how many scratches can this lamp get? via   www.jaimtelias.com

This house functions as workplace, too. And it looks so good! It seems the architect could solve the problem of creating a space where all the living uses and human relations are possible: relax, shelter, contemplation and work. All the family activities converge in a common volume that lands on the highest level of the ground and rises 2.5 m from the lowest part. This operation proposes the entry to the house underneath all these activities, stripping at this point […]

This apartment is like a journey: step by step you face curious travel discoveries. I don’t know the story behind the objects, but the reason I say that is the personal touch you find in every room. Take her bedroom, for example… a Jasper John-exhibition poster from Louisiana and an old, re-upholstered chair. If the space is limited, she advices us to choose items with multiple functions. In her bathroom, Christina has mounted multifunction stand ‘Complement’ from Ikea, which contains both […]

Last week, we presented a house realized by architect Maxim Calujac from Republic of Moldova. Today, we went back to his portfolio and found an apartment that deserves a post on our website as well. The colors remind me of an agreement with nature: grey, yellow and brown, and the materials reinforce the idea showing rough pieces of wood and concrete like an industrial design manifest.

An example of very edgy design for a good cause. These duvet covers and pillows, by Peggy van Neer, feature a hyper-realistic photographic print of a cardboard box on cotton and are being sold to raise funds for a charity.

Architect Paul Steurer wanted a house made of aluminum and concrete…with simple, elegant lines the building perfectly integrates in the mountain environment. Firmly anchored in the ground – half the ground floor is in the slope – the cuboid made of concrete with rust-colored aluminum panels proves to be a good reinterpretation of the classic hillside house. via paulsteurer.at

When I first saw this collection of furniture I thought it is impossible for someone to choose a black and white cover for its house. Even if these two mono colors may seem very austere, my opinion is that they would make a perfect combination with several eccentric decorative objects. The squares that are dancing came from a concept of ‘active white’ – a space that expressed the idea of ‘still white on black’. via nendo.jp

The River House designed by Ziger/Snea  is a weekend retreat located on the Rappahannock River in Virginia. Sited on a pre-engineered and cleared site, the 3500- square-foot house marks the intersection of three landscapes: natural forest, wetlands, and a mile-wide river. The house is divided into three components: the main house, the guest quarters, and a multi-purpose level. To maximize interior space and privacy of the main house, the entry porch acts as circulation to the guest rooms. Translucent panels allow daylight […]
