Tuesday, August 5th, 2014

Article source: Taller KEN

\”Saul Z¬¬¬¬¬ona 14\” is a house with many charms. Under one roof, we combine fashion, design, art, objects and food. Here, a union of culture and commerce full of surprises and small treasures entices clients and visitors to take the time to enjoy diverse experiences. It is a place to meet, to stop for a drink at the café, to shop at the store or to visit the terrace to have a long meal or just sit to read. The design’s playful qualities draw from cultural references.

New residential and mix-use tower in Antwerp, Belgium by C.F. Møller Architects

Wednesday, July 16th, 2014

Article source:  C.F. Møller Architects
