For the design of this matcharia, we sought to escape the traditional, with minimalist references that were translated into the organic forms that constitute the concept of the project. The base of light tones was used in order to bring a greater breath to the space and serve as a blank canvas to work on the green that is the brand’s signature at some points within the project.

Signed by architect David Bastos, this 395m² apartment is located in the Vila Olímpia neighborhood of São Paulo.
Recently delivered by the construction company, the apartment had not been inhabited.

The UK’s leading appliance care specialist Domestic & General was happy with the location of its existing Wimbledon head offices – in one of London’s leafiest outlying areas, conveniently close to the railway and tube station – but when the building’s lease renewal coincided with Covid-19 and lockdown, the opportunity arose for a full review of the company’s future workplace needs. Domestic & General recognised this might be a moment for wholesale change – but only if their team were likely to share in and feel ownership of that future vision.
In the heart of Rotterdam on Hofplein, the new Unilever Benelux headquarters occupy six floors of an existing building from 1960 by architect C.A. Abspoel with a striking concrete structure. The new Unilever facility will accommodate around 750 employees.
This striking, minimal beach pavilion was designed to have a fully indoor/outdoor feel, with the comfort of a living room in a space that is largely open with dramatic views and cooling airflow. It is conceived as a space to gather away from the frenetic energy of Lagos, as it is located on a peninsula accessible only by boat from the core of the city, the clean-lined, elegant space has the feeling being nestled on a remote, natural island yet is still within city limits, serving as a nearby rural outpost for easy day trips.

The head office occupies a room of approximately 250 square meters on the eighth floor of a commercial building in the neighborhood of Pinheiros in São Paulo, Brazil. It has a beautiful and unexpected view of the city.
The original commercialized house type is not satisfying to the young couple’s eyes, not only the lifestyle cannot be implanted, but also the spatial atmosphere is far below expectations.
We hope to virtualize the interface of certain spaces, but of course, they can still become solid when needed; in the open mode, the walls of various spaces are interspersed with each other, either solid or virtual, just like the line paintings of the Tang Dynasty (Lu Xun, “Letters to Li Hua”)
The main characteristic of the new Goodman offices in the Paseo de la Castellana in Madrid is to respond to the new demands of the workspaces in these days and age.
The space is divided into two work areas, one for exclusively private use and a work area (meeting rooms) where visitors are received. These two spaces are joined by the Open Space which is a large open, and flexible space where all kinds of activities are combined. This space serves as a reception, a leisure room, a dining room, for spontaneous meeting rooms.
There are no fixed workstations, there is no paper, and the need to combine teleworking results in multifunctional spaces that are configured and used according to different needs.
