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? Take a look at these 10 minimalist bathr

A’Lentil Design were tasked with overhauling this 712 square foot apartment in Taipei for a couple who desired comfortable, multifunctional spaces within its modest footprint. Combining light woods and earth tones with fun colorful pieces, the interior perfectly reflects the couple’s personality while providing the space they need.

A+Z Design Studio, run by architect and production designer Attila F. Kovács and his art director and stylist wife, Zsuzsa Megyesi, became their own clients when they converted a four-story building that was once a weapons factory, into their home. Located in the southern part of Budapest, Hungary, Loft 19, their tower-like home, and the large factory complex date back to around 1913-1915 and have become protected industrial buildings. The space is quite unusual but they’ve made

Saint-André Residence is a minimalist house located in Montreal, Canada, designed by Naturehumaine. The project consists of adding a modern extension to the backside of an existing building while retaining the character of the built environment on the street side. The transformation sought to create a bright and open-space single-family dwelling. The extension created additional space for a larger kitchen on the ground floor to open up to the garden, and cantilevered master bedroom b

To meet the needs of a large family, FORM turned three existing apartments into one in the historic center of Moscow. Their main objective was create an apartment that felt like an extension of the family while making it feel calm and welcoming. Throughout the apartment, a fairly subdued palette was implemented to encourage a calm, soothing environment. Shades of aquamarine paired with oak wood are predominate, along with details in bronzed brass, natural stones, and wool textiles.

The Unfurled House, by Christopher Polly Architect, consists of the original structure with a Federation masonry front and a new, two-story framed volume attached. Located in Petersham, Sydney, Australia, the addition creates a split-level design when connected to the original scale, helping to blend in with the larger and smaller houses in the neighborhood. In the back of the house, “wedges” project out to create additional storage on the ground floor terrace. It also al

Located in Lexington, Massachusetts, Grow Box is a residence surrounded by over 40 varieties of Japanese maple trees that the homeowners lovingly maintain. The natural landscape restricted the footprint of the new house, so MERGE architects got clever with the design by creating slot gardens that allowed the trees to remain intact. The exterior is clad in a weathered steel that closely matches the bark on the surrounding trees. Floor-to-ceiling windows frame views of the trees helpin

Jean Verville architecte designed FAHOUSE, a residence burrowed in the middle of a hemlock forest in Eastern Townships, Canada. The design takes inspiration from the archetypal figure of a house and doubles it with two triangular prism forms that are connected – almost like two trees growing towards the sky. The project answers the needs of a young, professional couple and their two children with a playful design that explores a new way of living. A wide staircase on the exte

Now Sonos is looking to expand their brand presence with their first store location – a continuation of their commitment to design recently exhibited within their amazing Boston offices. This new 4
