And where else would be a better place to start than a place that’s exploding with art, design and culture: the city of Angels!

Gensler is one of those architecture firms you hear about regularly as they’re busting at the seams with superb talent and incredible projects. Architect Jordan Goldstein is one of those people, whose career with the firm now spans two decades. The Washington, DC native earned a Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Maryland, College Park before heading to the University of Pennsylvania to receive his Master of Architecture degree. After going to work at Gensler in 19

Russian design studio Salt & Water has created a tiny house that’s designed to work within any landscape. The Tiny Eco-House is a prefabricated concept that’s only 20 square meters (215 square feet) and constructed of mostly natural materials, like wood. The cozy interior provides a comfortable living space that includes a living area, dining room, and a kitchen, along with a bathroom and a sleeping loft. Outside, there’s a large terrace that gives the feelin

The following post is brought to you by 3M. Our partners are hand-picked by the Design Milk team because they represent the best in design. Michael Szivos, who founded SOFTlab in 2005, has said that the New York-based design studio is about material, experience, effect and engagement. Four words that go a long way toward explaining why the studio’s collaboration with 3M is so successful—it’s certainly hard to imagine a more material- and experience-centered co

Hired by a couple who love travel, sports, and books, Studio K renovated a semi-detached house near the center of Leuven, Belgium. The clients longed to brighten up the once-dark home so an extension was added with a courtyard in the middle to ensure light passed through the entire interior. The addition was designed with exposed plywood panels, beams, and columns, which is juxtaposed with the black furnishings and finishes. The kitchen hides away behind white sliding doors and whe

NORTHBOURNE Architecture + Design was enlisted by a young couple in Melbourne to renovate their house in an effort to make room for their unborn child. Instead of adding an extension, NORTHBOURNE was able to save the clients money by reconfiguring the existing floor plan and optimizing functionality, resulting in a cozy, modern home. A new fireplace was installed above a marble hearth that doubles as a bench with storage for firewood underneath. One of the clients’ wishes was

While loft living might not be for everyone, others find it dream-worthy. Wide open spaces paired with high ceilings lead to innovative storage solutions and clever furniture layouts for some, while others become overwhelmed with the lack of walls. When done well, lofts become the covetable places that any urbanite would love to hang their hat, which led us to search out ten lofts that are doing it right. Take a look. Designed by Ofist in Istanbul, Turkey, the Karaoke Lof

Los Angeles architecture and construction firm Marmol Radziner are renowned for sophisticated residential architecture and custom furniture, most notably the historic restoration of Richard Neutra’s Kaufmann House in Palm Springs and their desert prefab prototypes. It’s fair to say the firm has left their mark across the Southern California architectural landscape in multitude. But count us surprised to walk through the doors for lunch to discover their signature attention to fo

Located in Phoenix, Arizona, Uptown Row is a townhome development situated between a historic residential area and a busy industrial road, which happens to be less than 500 feet from a light rail station. The project was designed by The Ranch Mine to feel like single-family homes while actually being multi-family units in a city that is slowly embracing public transportation. The development houses 10-units, five in each building, where each building’s width is close to the sam

Located in Kakanui, New Zealand, The Whittaker Cube is a budget-friendly residence designed by Dravitzki & Brown that spans two floors, each just 8 meters by 8 meters (approx. 26 feet by 26 feet). Its small, seaside location meant maximizing views, while also providing privacy from the neighbors and the street. The exterior’s simple look is created using cedar planks, which act as a rain screen and hide the flashing underneath. While the house is modest in size, the

Photo by Drew Kelly Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last 16 years, chances are you’ve spotted, picked up, or have a copy (or 20) of Dwell magazine in your house. Since 2000, design lovers have been staring longingly at the pages dreaming of one day living in one of the houses that’s beautifully showcased on its pages and we have its founder and board chair Lara Deam to thank for that. Her Dwell journey began when she moved to Mill Valley, California an

OOA | Office O architects designed Villa CD near the sea in Oostduinkerke, Belgium. Surrounded by dunes and bungalow houses from the early 60s, the design had to follow certain restrictions in accordance with the other houses and the environment. The result is a bungalow-inspired house that appears to just be one story at first glance. The residence features a horizontal design that cantilevers over the driveway creating covered parking. The sloped site gives the appearance of the ho
