The Glade in Guernsey by DLM Architects

Friday, March 23rd, 2018

Article source: DLM Architects 

The brief was to create an energy efficient and sustainable new build family home on a densely planted site in St Peter Port, Guernsey. Due to a number of protected trees and the high quality of natural landscape within an urban setting, the site was heavily restricted by the local planning department. After 4 years negotiating with planning, a solution was found that complied with the relevant policies and alleviated the concerns of the planners.  The building was designed to minimise overlooking to and from neighbouring properties, and maximise natural light and solar gain, whilst avoiding the numerous root protection areas of the surrounding trees and maintaining a proportionate footprint to the previous development on site.

Kooyong Apartment in Australia by WOWOWA Architecture & Interiors

Thursday, March 22nd, 2018

Article source: WOWOWA Architecture & Interiors

Glamour, colour and retiree joy in Glenferrie. This alteration to a spacious early 80s apartment celebrates the colours of its terracotta building and by re-orientating the kitchen area around a “V” shaped island acting as an informal table, creates a playful & functional contemporary gem to grown old in.

The brief: design us a joyful colourful space that will make us smile. We have many clients who have spent most of their time in heritage family homes and this is their chance to enjoy a fresh modern aesthetic. A purge of old furniture can be good for the soul and crisp white walls were a must for the​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ clients – a hangover from the elaborately multi-coloured Victorian decor of their former dwelling. The Loom rug became our colour muse. The 80s terracotta coloured building exterior set up the use of the beautiful orange Sydney blue gum timber, but the rug instantly gave that fabulous colour injection. A pair of WOWOWA’s own copper Rosella pendants hang in the living room – a lovely reminder as, like the couple, Rosella’s mate for life.

Thursday, March 22nd, 2018

Article source: SUPER NORMAL DESIGN GROUP

Because of Jane Austen’s masterpiece Pride and Prejudice, “Mr. Darcy” has become the most perfect golden bachelor in the literary history. He possesses both the pride of the nobility and the self-discipline of a gentleman. His retro charm of both inside and outside still touches people’s heart nowadays.

Xiamen Guanyin Mountain Chamber in China by H&W Design Office

Thursday, March 22nd, 2018

Article source: H&W Design Office 

The sense of literature of Xiamen is more profound than the freshness of walking by the sea, it is rooted in the undulating waves . The light of the interior space is soft, and the deep sense of modern has kept the low-key luxury temperament of old Shanghai, thus the room presents a narrative tone.
