Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

I know writing has been a little light lately, promise to catch up soon! In the meantime, enjoy Chrismas and this holiday season!

Losa Loft

The Losa Loft in San Francisco's Mission District had been remodeled into a warm, cleanly-detailed space for urban living.

Metail Factory Loft in Milan

Marco Dellatorre designed this 5-meter-high loft in an old metal factory in Milan. His goal was to pay homage to the original industrial use of the building while avoiding minimalism and preserving the open plan.

Urban Romanian Loft

Architects Ion Popusoi and Bogdan Preda collaborated on an amazing residential project – this stunning transparent loft In Brasov, Romania.

White Castle

This 1,500-square-foot Long Island City loft is white from floor to ceiling it is so streamlined that there are no doors, save for the front door and one to the storage room.

Goin’ to the chapel…

This sturdy early 1900's building has been transformed with a contemporary warehouse vibe but the chapel shell remains as does the simple utilitarian feel. It was plain and functional in the praise of the Lord when it was a church and now it is minimal and functional in the service of the owners.

Old Jewel Mill

This loft is located in an old jewel mill in a reclaimed former industrial area, near the harbor of Eriksberg, Sweden. The architecture has been allowed to continue characterize the residential environment, which continues in the interior.

Moscow High-Tech

This penthouse is full of strong lines and sharp angles so you cut yourself just by looking at them. Light halos, combined with black-on-white accents with these stark geometric forms shape interesting spaces.

Villa Vals

The Villa Vals in Switzerland is a pair of dwellings built into a hillside with the intention of remaining concealed and unobtrusive to the natural beauty surrounding it. Set within walking distance to the famous thermal springs of Therme Vals; a hotel/spa complex that is built directly over the natural springs. Villa Vals is certainly one of the coolest and unique designs I’ve come across, a joint-venture between SeARCH and Christian Muller Architects

Help Japan

More than anything else, Japan represents peace to me. Peace in the way its people behave and present themselves, in their social rituals: always welcoming, never angry. Peace in the way the surroundings look: the understated architecture, minimalist art, subtlety of decor. Peace in the way the country is represented in culture and cuisine: measured, elegant, beautiful to look at, wonderful to taste.
