                                House in Santarém is a minimal weekend retreat located in Santarém, Portugal, designed by Vasco Cabral + Sofia Saraiva. The home consists of three functional areas that are clearly delineated, and include the social area, service area, and private area. The latter, which has a longer body with East-West orientation, acts as a barrier to the street that passes north.
Between the private area and social area are the kitchen, toilet, and technical area. The L-shaped volumetric arrangement allows the separation of the exterior areas, arranging them according to the degree of privacy desired around the house. The least private area of the home is dedicated to parking. To the south, and visually protected by the volume of the sleeping area, there is the outdoor terrace with the pool. One of the more striking elements of the architecture is the long longitudinal tear on the North facade, which produces abundant natural illumination

This approach is exemplified in Plain Cuts, a series that focuses on the abstract geometry of construction and virtual lines, which produce the volume. Plain Cuts underlines Park’s investigation into the materiality of things, an exploration inspired by Park’s interest in architecture. According to Park, “The idea of this new collection ‘Plain cuts’ is to provide a minimalist and drastic process based on the construction of aluminum sheets with patina technique. Structures are exposed to the surface and it becomes part of the work itself. Patina on Aluminum is like painting on a canvas. I try to

As a result, this apartment perfectly culminates the client’s collection of art and furniture, with the focus of making the architecture disappear by creating a clean backdrop to house the vast and special collection that is in constant transformation. In order to achieve greater integration of the spaces, the four bedrooms and compartmentalized rooms have been totally reconfigured and opened up. In order to tie the space together, a monolithic floor runs throughout the apartment, reinforcing the continuity of the spaces. Photography by Ruy Teixeira.

A young family wanted the designers to help combine two apartments into one, and create a space that would feel more like a home than a New York City apartment.
Through the combination of apartments, the designers were able to think through how to maximize natural light while creating an airy and comfortable space. The programs were re-arranged, and the living room was opened up toward the rear patio while the designers drastically enlarged the kitchen area on the ground floor. Throughout the renovation, the designers were conscientious in bringing in local designers to fill the space. As a result, light fixtures, wallpaper, and tiles were all made by local designers. As described by General Assembly, the final result was a clean, open space dotted with moments of design that are particular to this family

The resulting collection is Trueing’s take on traditional terrazzo patterns, updated for contemporary tastes and use. Cast-in-place marble terrazzo is reimagined in the form of a mirror, functional and easily hung to bring the feeling of grand installations into the home, without becoming overly ornate. Keen to highlight the graphic quality of the material, the studio designed a custom pattern for each mirror, utilizing reference images and sketches taken in the field. For the walnut version, the pattern is constructed entirely from mirror, which is precision cut and inlaid into the milled wooden body.

Floyd, known for their minimal and easy-to-assemble bed frame, expands into the rest of the home with a multipurpose table. The table can be assembled in less than five minutes, without any tools, and ships flat-packed. The table is manufactured in the United States, and is constructed of birch and all-natural linoleum. As described by Kyle Hoff, “No matter the purpose, everyone needs a table in their home. As we developed the design for the Floyd table, we looked to first create a product that our customers would really want to spend time with because so much of our life happens around tables.”

The modern Hamptons weekend home is for a family of six, which will be used throughout the year. The clients wanted a simpler space that would align with the natural surroundings.
The home is situated in a quiet neighborhood in the Hamptons, and serves as a contrast to the bustling city life. As such, the clients wanted the furnishings to reflect this relaxed atmosphere. The atrium, which is characterized by glass panels stacked twenty feet high, features lighting by Apparatus. Due to the fact that the home is open-concept, the architects delineated each space by using varying materials for the flooring. The focal point of the residence is the hearth, which features a fireplace constructed from a smooth black slate.

Bengtsson, who was particularly inspired by the eclectic style of the Art Deco era, wanted to design a kitchen that would celebrate unexpected combinations. As such, distinct colors, such as golden brass and soft mauve, were used in combination with the black countertop to reflect Bengtsson’s passion for contrast. The brass, in particular, has been used throughout Bengtsson’s other design projects as a detail to exemplify a sense of luxury and sophistication. The panel colors can be mixed, as they were designed to be, or isolated, with one tone dominating the room. The design is available with or without brass

Co-founder of Snarkitecture Daniel Arsham states, “Our intention was to create a contemplative environment with Loop – a space that was not immediately understood upon entering. While we wanted the design to be playful, we were mindful of creating a work that provided an escape. It was important to offer a setting and feeling that were completely new and inspiring to visitors.” The COS x Snarkitecture installation is open between 10am-7pm every day at the Gana Art

The designer prides himself in handcrafting pieces with honest materials based on a design language inspired by the purity that comes from a commitment to purpose and function.
As such, the Doodle Table was inspired directly by Kroft’s childhood, mainly work desks that were used throughout classrooms. The table is inspired by the old classroom desks that featured adjustable chrome legs and simple clean lines. Kroft replaced the chrome legs with solid wood inserts that receive tenons that are inserted into the square tube legs. The table completely knocks down for easy shipping and comes in a variety of colors and finishes. The top is a high pressure laminate which offers maximum durability for dining or work. The metal frame is powder coated with a matte black finish.

The three-story wooden residence is situated in a quiet residential suburban area of Tokyo.The structure was built under the restrictions of utilizing fire resistance materials, height restrictions, and a few other codes specific to the area.
As a result, although the homes within the area follow a patterned procedure of design and execution, the architects wanted to create a unique house without breaking any local regulations. The architects wanted to recreate the anatomy of the architecture within the context of the traditional three-story wooden home. Due to refractory specifications, cross beams were utilized, and as a result, created a large room with improved ventilation and natural lighting. The cross beams also serve as a rail for a series of sliding doors. By moving and replacing sliding doors, the home becomes a modular

IN 2 Residence by Jean Verville architecte

The clients have a penchant for contemporary arts, theater, music and dance, as well as digital art, video, and installation. As a result, the architects wanted to create a domestic architectural installation by integrating an inventive experimentation in the Montreal cottage built in the 50s.
Gathering input and feedback with the client, the architects created an assemblage of visual breakthroughs and stark contrasts that create tension and scale within the space. As described by the architect, the opposition between black and white produces optical effects oscillating between reality and abstraction. The resulting graphic environment creates a participatory and playful experience that is animated by whimsical touches that soften the coldness often associated with contemporary architecture. The space is supplanted by beautiful illusionary affects, much to the delight of the owners.
