Located in Vancouver’s West Point Grey neighborhood, the Folded House was designed by Scott Posno Design for a working couple whose sons had grown up and moved out. The empty nesters wanted to replace their aging family home with a modern one that would work with their personal and professional lives as they moved forward. The new two-story residence spans 2,800 square feet with the main living areas on the ground level, while the three bedrooms were located on the second floor




Grid is a minimal residence located in Tokyo, Japan, designed by APOLLO Architects & Associates. The client, an avid art collector, wanted a new home with museum-like qualities that would take advantage of his collection. While the neighborhood surrounding the site is quiet, the architects still wanted to keep noise to a minimum; as a result the architects proposed a single-story reinforced concrete structure. Similar to the exterior, the interior features a monochromatic color s




Hi DM readers. Today is International Women’s Day and we’re joining the Women’s March, women and allies around the world for a one-day demonstration of economic solidarity—the #DayWithoutAWoman—in the name of equity, justice and the human rights of women and all gender-oppressed people. As a woman-owned and primarily women-run business, Design Milk is taking the day off. We will see you back here tomorrow, when we continue our regularly scheduled design awesomeness.




Maciej Kawecki, owner of Brandburg Studio, hired mode:lina™ after finding the perfect apartment in Poznań, Poland to become his new place to both live and work. With just 38 square meters (approx. 398 square feet) to work with, every component had to serve many functions for his office and life, along with incorporating a “hiding room” for the owner’s six-year-old son. Besides offering the function that he needed, Kawecki wanted a space that looked professional enou




No. 4 House is what we jokingly call a ‘house mullet.’ From the front it appears to be your typical semi-detached, 19th century Victorian, but from the back, it’s completely modern with a brand-new addition. Along with the addition, the two-story, Hawthorn, Australia residence was renovated by Bryant Alsop to open the interior up for a more modern layout, as well as bringing in more daylight. Considering the modest lot size, they were able to give the home four bed

Cloud Room is a private, member’s only, shared working environment in Seattle that’s the product of a joint collaboration between Graham Baba Architects and Brian Paquette Interiors who oversaw the design of the co-working space. While it’s an office for people to work in, it doesn’t feel boring or sterile like many workspaces do, especially some of the co-working concepts that have popped up. Light floods the office, which is located on the 6th floor of a mix




Airbnb São Paulo enlisted architecture firm MM18 Arquitetura to design their main office so that it would pay homage to the Brazilian culture. Working directly with local designers, they were able to incorporate designs, like carpets from Brunno Jahara and brass fixtures by Carol Gay, to strengthen its Brazilian identity. Throughout, they brought in native plants, like bromeliads and gibóias, to add a natural element. In the open areas, they designed spaces for employees to interac




If you’ve ever wanted to own an architectural gem, this Southern California home has landed on the market for the first time since 1978. Built in 1954 for builder and craftsman Ken McLeod, the house is located in Claremont just east of Los Angeles with Fred McDowell credited as the architect. McLeod had close ties with McDowell, Theodore Criley, and Richard Neutra, which clearly shows in its mid-century design. In 1965, the back of the home was damaged by fire, which resulted i




With everyone being plugged into their devices 24/7, it’s hard to remain connected to people in real life. Jordi Iranzo looked to ways to fix that by creating a playful meeting spot that gives people the opportunity to connect with others while they disconnect from their phones. Soufuu encourages you and your friends to meet up and start some new habits, like resting and disconnection. The house-like structure offers various places to sit or lay down – in one of the small




With its short distance from Los Angeles, Palm Springs is a popular locale for those looking to escape the urban sprawl for a little bit of laid back paradise. It’s also a major draw for design lovers around the globe as it’s world-famous for its mid-century architecture. With Modernism Week still going on through February 26th, we decided to take a look at some of the mid-century wonders Palm Springs has to offer. The famed Sinatra House was designed for Fran
