Located in São Paulo, Brazil, the 120-square-meter (1292-square-foot) BP Apartment is home to a man that likes to host parties for small groups of friends. To make that happen, SuperLimão Studio were hired and they got to work opening the spaces up and organizing a better layout. A blue box was built between the open living space and the bedroom to house storage and a full working bar. The sliding door slides into a slot within the box to form a cubic wall sculpture seen from the liv

A couple in their 60s commissioned Tobias Partners to design a relaxing beach house where they could host their family and friends, as well as a place to display all of the treasures the well-traveled homeowners have picked up along the way. Set on the high tide line at Bondi Beach, Deepwater is a modern residence built with a durable outer shell for the brutal conditions. Spanning five levels, all of which vary in height, the house has balconies on each of the floors that project ou

RobitailleCurtis were hired to renovate a Montreal townhouse that came with a 32′ tall atrium and a skylight that spanned the full width of the residence. Instead of downplaying these features, they were embraced to create a bold and unique interior. From the ground floor up, Douglas fir slats were positioned vertically in place of guardrails. They also keep sight lines open. The wood, combined with polished concrete floors and white lacquered millwork, result in a clean, minim

With a modern industrial vibe and delicious burgers on the menu, Shade Burger is the perfect place to “meat”. YOD design studio designed the modest-sized restaurant in Poltava, Ukraine, which holds 25 seats, geared towards young, open-minded people. Burgers tend to get served with a handful of essential ingredients and that similar idea is behind the interior’s design – a combination of essential materials. The main “ingredient” is natural tree ve

The Heads of State have done it again. We’ve celebrated their work on DM before and this time we’re no less impressed… The Philadelphia-based design firm has designed a collection of posters called ‘Funeral for a Home’. The purpose of the project was to commemorate the fall and subsequent rebirth of the Philadelphia housing stock. Each poster was created for a city-wide event celebrating the architecture and neighborhoods of Philadelphia.

Luciano Lerner Basso, of Basso Engenharia, designed House 4.16.3, a project that sits on a sloped hillside in the countryside of Rio Grande do Sul. The Erechim, Brazil residence is made up of two volumes, one of which is cantilevered, hovering above concrete columns. The design was driven by the desire to limit how much the land had to be altered, which led to the longer volume being elevated above ground. The two volumes form a “T” shape, a reference to the Prairie House

A former upholsterer’s workshop in East London was enclosed on three sides by surrounding buildings, only spanning 12m x 3.7m (39′ x 12′). Falling into disrepair, the abandoned Victorian structure was renovated by Kirkwood McCarthy into a two-bedroom, open plan home that involved digging a new basement and raising the roof. Due to its modest footprint, the vertical design, of the Winkley Workshop, spans three floors and transitions from public to private. Photo by Da

C Residence is a 182 square meter (1959 square foot) apartment in Taichung, Taiwan that was designed by Z-AXIS DESIGN. Overall, soft colors were paired with rich neutrals that result in an interior with high style. Large windows along one side of the residence fill the spaces with sunlight feeling as if you were in a “modern penthouse apartment in Paris.” Color was used sparingly throughout each space adding a dynamic layer to the interior. An L-shaped kitchen faces th

In the wine region of Red Hill, Victoria, Australia, this modern home rests amongst the grapes. Inspired by the winery, Finnis Architects designed the house so it would age over time and feel more like a part of the surrounding landscape. The deck on the back of the house offers unobstructed views of the winery through the glass railing. During the winter, the deck allows the sun to heat the house, while helping to reflect it during the summer months helping to reduce heating and coo

Westway Architects renovated this 180-square-meter (1937 square foot) apartment located in a beautiful residential section of Rome. The new design is open and bright with an almost sculptural quality when it comes to the details. An elongated terrace off the living room isn’t the only outdoor space for this penthouse – there’s also a rooftop terrace to enjoy the views. The public living area is on the bottom floor of the apartment, while the new master bedroom, a si

Igor Sirotov, of Sirotov Architects, designed this 76-square-meter (818 square foot) apartment in Kiev for a young man wanting a modern space. Focusing on dark, moody colors and warm woods, the interior has a classy and sophisticated look while remaining comfortable and inviting. The sleek kitchen hides away the details leaving you to wonder where everything is, including the kitchen faucet. Once the sliding doors are moved, you can see everything perfectly tucked away until needed

Bathrooms, even when they’re on the larger side, aren’t always the biggest rooms and when you throw in a shower or tub, a sink, and a toilet, they get even smaller. Top that with busy stone patterns, tiles, and ornate fixtures and it can be visual overload. On the flip side, you can keep things clean and simple with a minimalist look that can lend itself to a soothing retreat where we love to spend our time. Not sure about a scaled back look?
