Article source: Studio Dave Keune

In collaboration with EB Ontwerp, Studio Dave Keune Designed and realized a library for primary school Fiep Westendorp. It was our goal to create an environment that excites and tempts the children to read books again despite these digital days. The result is spiral shaped bookshelves that curl through the space. The spiral starts high and slopes down while making its turns.

Loft in Noho, New York City by Jendretzki llc.

Wednesday, November 28th, 2012

Article source: Jendretzki llc.

This 4,000 square foot classic loft space tries to maintain the openness, utilitarian and industrial language of its raw brick, wood, and steel elements exposed. We created separations between rooms by placing free standing volumes instead of floor to ceiling partitions creating a landscape of intriguing geography, materials, heights, light and shadow.

C interior design by Daniela Craciunoiu

Sunday, November 25th, 2012

Article source: Daniela Craciunoiu

This is a day area make-over for an existing house.

The main challenge was the client’s desire to keep some of the old furniture – a couch and an armchair with a baroque texture and other red cherry furniture items. The existing atmosphere was rather dusty and sad, with a combination of different shades of beige and the red of the cherry wood.

The Cabin French Alps in Menuires, France by H2o Architectes

Tuesday, October 30th, 2012

Article source: H2o Architectes

Our design team was invited to rethink a ski resort apartment in Menuires, France. Located at the far end of a building built in 1965, it has triple orientation that was not valued by the previous layout which was too segmented. The request was to realize the impossible : increase the living space without touching the structure, create 2 bathrooms instead of the one existing, preserve the number of beds, 8 beds in 55m2, all while maintaining separate circultaions for each.
