Working on a Saturday

If you have to go to work on a Saturday I couldn't think of a better place than the Birkenstock Australia HQ. Sustainability, quality, craftsmanship ... not just Birkenstock but the design by Melbourne Design Studio. Yes please! Read more about the brief and the designers' approach to the project here.

P.S. Why am I obsessed by working on a Saturday all of a sudden? I have a new business, Feast and Co. Pardon the website as it is still in development but we are all about catering and functions based in a beautiful old 1916 home. We're super busy this weekend with two weddings. Yikes! I better get off this blog and back to the bride. Hopefully photos and background story soon.

Joinery

Now you see it. Now you don't. Yes I do like a good bit of bespoke joinery I do, I do. A home for everything and everything in its home. By FMD Architects.

Love!

Is it possible to fall in love with a powder room? A bedroom yes. A kitchen definitely but a small room with a toilet and a sink? You bet! Hawthorne House by AM Architecture.

Cabanas no Rio

Perched on the tidal waters of Comporta south of Lisbon, Portugal are two small cabins. Crafted from recycled timber they reference the local fishermen's huts. The first cabin contains a bedroom and bathroom. The second a living space with basic kitchen. Simple and beautiful, romantic and at one with the wetlands. Cabanas no Rio by architect Manuel Aires Mateus. In my dreams I am there already.
