Gabrielle Hächler and Andreas Fuhrimann are architects based in Zurich, Switzerland who design modern residential and commercial spaces like no one's business. Simple designs with minimal details, the emphasis is on the importance of nature and the views outdoors, and basic materials such as concrete and plywood.
Whether it's designing her own office space to bachelor pads and commercial spaces Ashley Roi Jenkins has a hip and fresh style. She's also at home fusing historical details with the modern and practical. The first few pictures are of her own design office (contained within her San Francisco home) and wow, I love it. Clever use of closet space as office space.
I've popped over the border a few hours south to dream of owning this ridgetop estate in beautiful Byron Bay. Consisting of a main residence and two villas there's plenty of room for all of us to party in style. I'll take the huge old farmhouse any day and those pavilions with that Balinese feel? Great holiday pads don't you think? Beach and rainforest, fabulous restaurants and music festivals, Byron is one of Australia's premier beachside holiday spots. No highrise though just a great boho eco feel in a laid back but very stylish country town.
