We’re fascinated seeing how and where designers work as that’s the birthplace of all of their ideas. Not only does our Where I Work column feature their workspace, it shares a glimpse into the designer’s mind and how they work. It’s the end of 2016 so we’re going back through our archives to see everyone we featured this year. Where I Work: Kim Herforth Nielsen of 3XN Architects Kim Herforth Nielsen, of 3XN Architects, shared a look at the fi




We have as soft spot for all things architecture. I mean, our homes are where we spend a majority of our time, so whether we’re looking for inspiration for our own surroundings or are just curious to see inside the spaces of the rest of the world, we can’t get enough of touring through houses, apartments, lofts, and commercial spaces. Let’s have another look at the most popular architecture posts from 2016. 10. Modern Homes Designed for Millennials Homes




Every year, we reach out to select designers, architects, artists, and creatives, and ask them to pick five things. What can those five things be? Absolutely anything they love, anything that inspires them, or just some favorites – it’s completely up to them. Every week, we get completely different responses that always surprise and fascinate us. Now we’re going to look back at the 10 most popular Friday Five posts from 2016. 10.

We went around the world and then some over the last 12 months so we could virtually take you to some of the most incredible design-focused hotels out there. Did you miss any? If so, let’s revisit these delightful places to stay and catch up with our Destination Design column from 2016.

The Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) (my alma mater!!) was founded in 1978 and has been at the forefront of fine art and design education for almost 40 years, and the one that’s been the force behind it all is SCAD president Paula Wallace. Since co-founding the private, non-profit, accredited university, Wallace has cultivated over 100 academic degree programs and expanded to five locations in Atlanta, Hong Kong, Lacoste, and Savannah, and online through SCAD eLearning.




Domus Aurea is a private residence in Monterrey, Nuevo León, Mexico that was designed as a collaboration between Gilberto L. Rodríguez, of GLR Arquitectos, and Alberto Campo Baeza, of Estudio Campo Baeza. Spanning 550 square meters (approx. 5920 square feet), the home pays homage to Mexican architect, Barragán, whose projects always had a strong presence of light. The exterior feels quite minimal with smooth crisp white surfaces and almost no adornment. The marble front door is situa




Nando’s has been known to work with different designers to get fresh new looks for their chain of Portuguese-style chicken restaurants that began in South Africa in 1987.

Walking through the city, one notices that many of these buildings are neglected and dilapidated, even though Tel Aviv was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site. But strolling up to the corner of Allenby and Nahalat Binyamin, there is one building that has been gloriously restored




A flat in São Paulo, Brazil was designed by Metamoorfose Studio for a young couple looking for flexible spaces. In the main interior, a wood panel folds up to reveal additional living space, both linking and separating the environments. When closed, the panels display a geometric design carved into its surface for additional visual interest. Behind the panel is a seating area that leads to the bedroom offering privacy when they decide to keep it closed. When folded up, the panel do




Composed of two apartments, this duplex in Potts Point, Sydney, NSW was renovated by Luigi Rosselli Architects, who demolished just 40% of the original structure to make it happen. The back of the house is where most of the construction happened to create a modern, four-story structure – a basement parking area, a ground floor apartment, and a two-story penthouse. The front of the house kept its Queen Anne windows, wood shingles, and dark brickwork to remain tied to the street&
