Apartment in the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona

Simplicity is deceptive. What appears to be sleek and clean lined and refined is highly thought out and designed. Spanish-German architectural design firm YLAB arquitectos (Tobias Laarmann and Yolanda Yuste) have taken a 130m2 apartment in Barcelona's Gothic Quarter and created a space of warmth and elegance, public and private, luxury and practicality. It is as if light and shade, white and earthy, cool and warm, natural surfaces, layers of texture, stone and wood, history and the present have all been distilled into a beautiful home. Deceptively simple. Simply wonderful. Images by Jordi Canosa and Daniela Cavestany.

AGATHOM Co.

Last night we had a veterinarian come by the house to give our cats a checkup (easier than taking all 7 of them in). At one point we were talking about our upcoming house project and she mentioned that her brother is a well-known architect in Toronto and has a firm with his wife called AGATHOM Co. Their website is currently a little sparse, but included photos of one project that I had to share (I found a few more and some info on Contemporist). It is a 1000 sq ft cabin in Pointe au Baril, a remote archipelago in Georgian Bay (3.5 hours north of Toronto) on a large area of exposed Precambrian rock. AMAZING!! (Be sure to check out the last photo after the jump)

Natalie Younger

Over the holidays we received an email from Jacqui, a design assistant at Natalie Younger Interior Design based in Los Angeles. I was stoked to feature this firm's work, as they've only been in business for over a year and they've got several intriguing projects already under their belt (mostly residential, but check out the last 2 photos below of a restaurant they designed). Bold, contemporary designs accentuated with graphic patterns and colours, from Hawaii to Colorado, these ladies are talented and have a bright future ahead.

Cool breeze

Still hot. Stinking hot and humid. Ah summer how I love thee! But this image by Aussie Petrina Tinslay, I can feel the breeze, the wonderful breeze. A perfect shot by a great photographer.

K-studio

A simple contemporary space within a19th century building in the Plaka at the foot of the Acropolis hill in Athens, Greece. A pure and elegant take on modern in historic by K-studio. The everyday world passes by outside this calm oasis of off whites and wood, smooth and sleek, carefully curated in its simplicity. Old transformed into new.
