Time Share Kindergarten in Slovenia was created by Jure Kotnik Architecture. Is a very nice place with different details to encourage children’s development. First the colorful staircase has names & numbers to help children learn then. Then there is a slide from the second to the first floor, which is the focal point for children & encourages them to climb stairs several times a day. Another detail is the black board to draw on the stairs, helping children with the learning process of writing & drawing. The kindergarten uses wood in the interior & exterior, vibrant colors & large windows that make it really light, fun and friendly place.
The Point King house is a modern beach residence in Australia created by Hassell Studio. The concept was to integrate a large-scale building in the natural environment. The shape is rectangular with glass facades. The second floor is built around the beauty of the sea; it feels like a floating object. King point is divided into three main spaces private, living & shared areas. The two main elements that make the house blend with its surroundings are the use of local materials such as limestone & wooden slats with different shades of gray & brown like the trees around the house; & the floor to ceiling glass doors & windows that allows a full view of the magnificent outside. One of my favorite places is the master bedroom with glass walls.
This home office is amazing, was created to prevent changes in the layout of the house & enjoy a small space in the backyard. It was collaboration between the owners & a custom construction company. The idea was to create an office of 30 m2 for work, make art & study. I like the way it looks like a container but with a huge window & terrace, is also nice the elevation that makes it even more interesting. Its nice how out of the office there’s a space to relax, smoke or have a drink enjoying nature & air. It's just amazing idea.
This beautiful beach style bathroom is created with stunning details. First the green colored lines are the perfect base. Then the mirror made of shells, the furniture & floor light pallet, candles & vase with seashells. I like the contrast of those few Brown elements & the amount of natural light. Really charming.
This impressive floating fireplace is the perfect place to welcome your guests. It is very contemporary, cozy & inviting, maintaining its elegant touch. I like how the different lights are combined; ceiling spotlights, while below the Bank is diffuse & warm. Another major element is the cushions that can be easily replaced by season. Finally, for me everything is made by the beautiful stone texture of the fireplace.
Bar Nou in Barcelona was created by Maio who designed a simple space which activates the senses. To attract attention from outside windows displays neon pictographs as a glass of wine, a tomato, a pitcher & bread. Behind neon figures you can see plywood arches suspended from the ceiling representing the Spanish vernacular architecture. The furniture is classic woven bulrushes with a modern twist as yellow color. Is a modern version of Spanish traditions.
Ranquist Development Group office was renovated by Chicago Studio Vladimir Radutny Architects. The idea was to create a raw space overlooking rooms & highlight the exposed surfaces inside. Design uses a lot of glass, black color, brick, wood & concrete to achieve the goal. I love the way the custom made desks are attached to black screens with holes that allow continuing the main idea of open spaces. Another good thing & very important is the use of wood to warm industrial style spaces.
This wonderful chair is Papillon designed by Karen Chekerdjian in 2012. Papillon is inspired by the roofs of Japanese temples creating an Asian feel. It is made with a frame & matte metal legs, with a juxtaposition of crimson tinted wood for the seat. It’s a magical three-legged chair.
This beautiful internal staircase was designed by Patrick Veillet Studio that specializes in designing vertical gardens. It is simply amazing how nature is the main character, combined with materials that enhance their beauty. The black metal frame with glass steps point the way to the next level & at the same time let us enjoy the internal garden. Finally, the lamp is a perfect accent for night
This stunning living room is based on eclectic beautiful contrasts. The one I like the most is the contrast between modern & classic furniture, I like that each has its own period elements, fabric, shape, frame, & lines is really amazing. Another beautiful contrast is patterns that are connected by colors of floral fabric; it is very important to put different patterns in the right place, because if they are placed too close to each other it wouldn’t work. This living room has a lovely personality.
