A significant community in Southwest Detroit, Mexicantown, has a unique locational strength and history, having attracted immigrant Mexican families to the area since the early 1920’s. The community is adjacent to the Ambassador Bridge which connects the U.S. to Canada and is the largest border crossing in North America. The heart of Mexicantown, along Bagley Avenue, is defined by a restaurant district, retail, a youth center and a variety of cultural enterprises. Additional landmarks present in the area include Ste. Anne de Detroit Church; the Michigan Central Station; and the city of Detroit skyline.

Apartment S in Lisbon, Portugal by FORWARD Architecture & Interior Design

An apartment in downtown Lisbon, designed by FORWARD, aims at being a place of refuge for the young cosmopolitan couple who seeks peace and calm, forgetting the daily city buzz.

When we enter the house, we are surrounded by its sophisticated and relaxed environment, with light and comfortable areas, with clean elegant lines, marked by the reflexes of the mirrors that extend the vertical elements subdividing them, and by the lighting shapes that emphasize architectural details, setting directions and giving rhythm and some drama to the different sceneries planned for home living.
