Wood, stone and books… 3 elements that don’t seem to have very much in common create the main characteristics of this living room. It’s a loft of 250m² where Fernanda Marques succeeded to make a  dream escape from urban frenzy. The nature plays much more than a mere supporting role: one just has to note the intense use of daylight. The use of materials in their rough state was a fundamental idea for its decoration. Daylight, highlighted textures, fully open to the outside… the key to […]

We have just received some photos from Dragana of her new apartment, located in Belgrade, and we wanted to share with you. She has created a lovely bright space in what seems like pretty cramped quarters. “I was in Amsterdam this year. Wandering through streets of Amsterdam, i found the inspiration to adapt my flat in Belgrade size 51m2, which had been totally ruined. I furnished it with the furniture, mostly white and straight lines.” Thank you again, Dragana!

The house is located in the north side of S. Michael Island in the Azores. Since the microclimate of this farmland offers frequent wind and showers, the first design strategy was to block these winds with a wall and offer diverse patios and covered courtyards to protect against rain. These two wings end with light entrances from the south. The roof offers a wonderful view of all of the island’s north shore. The typology follows almost classical Palladian and Scamozzi central […]

Designed by Abaton, the shape of the land that hosts this project -two rectangles joined by a long, narrow corridor- was for architects a real challenge: to build a house that, despite being boxed in, would provide a sense of space. The long corridor conditioned the planning of the house. This peculiarity of the land was reinforced from the entrance hall, and the indoor areas were linked to the exterior increasing the perception of space. The play area on the […]

Tribute to the Titanic…the tea holder designed by Gordon Adler is made of stainless steel and fits every coffee or tea mug. The mechanism is simple: you have to press the margins and your tea will become more colorful and tasty instantly.

French mirror, purple striped wallpaper, antique bed… as fabulous as these objects are, it’s the story behind them! The “business” is about the history of a piece, where it came from, the story behind the story. It’s about the people and the hunt. You don’t want to import containers. You want to find it in somebody’s house. You want to talk to them about it. That’s what makes the house  so vibrant and interesting. The bedroom is an outstanding experience. The […]

The next few images are of a lovely apartment in Amsterdam, I think we all at bricks + cartwheels could very easily live or work here. The light is lovely.
