Patisserie Tafelzier by LTS | Manufacturer references

A Feast for the Eyes of the Gourmet LTS products for Patisserie Tafelzier in Nuremberg A half-timbered building on the left, a high gothic tower on the right, but why on earth does it suddenly smell so deliciously? If you amble through the picturesque old town streets in Nuremberg and follow the scent of finest confectionery, sooner or later you will stand in front of the Patisserie Tafelzier – a land of milk and honey for the palate and the eye. Finely decorated pralines, chocolate, macarons, tartlets or éclairs. Already at the entrance, the eye is caught by the colourful and refined delicacies – small marvels of French confectionery. A visit to Tafelzier is also something special because the entire architecture and the sophisticated lighting concept are tailored to the products of confectioner Jens Brokerhoff. The ceiling is completely in black and therefore recedes into the background. The LTS spotlights installed are also black and therefore disappear on the black ceil… continue

Fairfield Mini-Luxe Ensuite by Drawing Room Architecture | Living space

A mini addition to this double fronted Edwardian weatherboard house in fairfield was an exercise in making the biggest impact to this young family home for the least effort. What was the brief? To add an extra bathroom to this family four bedroom, one bathroom weatherboard house. What were the key challenges? Sometimes the smallest renovation can make the biggest impact. This is certainly true for this double fronted weatherboard family house in Fairfield. With a small budget and only a 1.2m setback from the boundary - we transformed the main bedroom into a luxurious parents retreat. What were the solutions? We created a long narrow ensuite that pushes out to the boundary, and into the existing front bedroom. Creating a 1.5m wide ensuite with vanity, WC and shower all with a views to the sky and access to daylight through a full 4m long skylight. The new robes lead into the Ensuite creating more storage and sense of openness between the spaces, and shared daylight. A slidin… continue

Cap Adriano by Tribù | Manufacturer references

The breathtaking views out over the Mediterranean from the rocky Cap Adriano coast of Mallorca demand indoor-outdoor living – open vistas, shaded terraces and elegant poolside spaces for socializing as the sun goes down. Architect Guillermo Reynes of Gras Reynes has created an exclusive enclave of nine villas and eight apartments that capture the blue skies and bluer sea, looking towards the super-yacht harbour Port Adriano designed by Philippe Starck. The interior designers of Terraza Balear kept the outdoor spaces simple and chic, focusing on Tribù's Pavilion Daybed by Monica Armani on the pool terrace. “We didn’t want to interrupt the views. This Tribù piece doesn’t pull your attention away, but still has the luxury quality we were looking for.” In keeping with the pale stone used for the villa, Terraza Balear chose Tribù’s CTR Armchairs. The cool, curved, linen-weave backrests also reference the shapes and tones of the landscape setting. CTR club chairs teamed with Drops side tabl… continue

T111 Apartment by CaSA - Colombo and Serboli Architecture | Living space

This small apartment is located on a top floor in hip Sant Antoni neighborhood, Barcelona. The brief was to take the empty, irregular floor plan (demolitions had already been carried out) and transform it into the perfect home for a young professional Italian woman. The client’s wishes were an open-plan day area, a clean-lines project, loads of light, a big kitchen unit, one double bedroom that could be minimal and a bathroom, as big as possible, with natural light and ventilation, serving the bedroom but open to guests. The project had to provide plenty of storage in order to keep the spaces tidy, be very practical, while contemporary and cozy. The floor plan has a narrow central body with two peak-shaped spaces at each end, an awkwardly shaped property. A lot of thinking had to go into ways of providing space for everything. The entrance and corridor-like central space was clearly to become a linear kitchen space. The wider area overlooking the street, with the two balcony wind… continue

Western Metro, Koivusaari Station by Helin & Co Architects | Railway stations

The metro project started in Helsinki in 1955, when a city council member moved that a metro be built. Because of rapid growth of population it was assumed that the street network would not have enough capacity to accommodate both private cars and public transport. Moving public transport underground was seen as a solution to the problem. The decision concerning the first phase construction was finally made in 1969, and regular traffic between Helsinki railway station and Itäkeskus (‘eastern centre’) began in August 1982. Gradually the metro line was extended both eastwards, where it reached Mellunmäki in 1989 and Vuosaari nine years later, and westwards, where the Ruoholahti stration was opened in 1993. Discussion about extending the metro line westwards to Espoo started in the late 1990s. When the western metro project was launched in 2009, Helsinki’s traffic policy was no longer defined by the needs of private motoring. According to the website of the City of Helsinki, a traf… continue
