The Stables

Strong, resolved and enriching architecture. That is what New Zealand design boutique practice McKinney + Windeatt Architects aims to provide and their project, The Stables is a fine example. From its ivy clad walls to the dramatic profile of floor to ceiling, wall to wall steel and glass windows curtains flapping in the breeze, from the cosy confines of the exposed brick kitchen to the bright sunlight streaming in to the adjoining private terrace, all joined by the consistent march of the connecting staircase the house is part stage, part gallery, all home.

Working on a Saturday

Most weeks I feature workplaces under the banner of "if you have to drag yourself into work on the weekend it helps if it's somewhere stylish."

That teal is SO pretty.

Working on a Saturday

I could have almost called this one "Hanging out on a Saturday" because I'd love to be doing that right now. But if you do have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it is somewhere this stylish. Dr. Smood in Miami by Quincoces-Dragò & Partners.
