Open Haus

I love it when my inbox is groaning with photos emailed by our favourite architect Scott Weston. Once again he has included one of his amazing models but I'll let him explain the space.

"We thought you may appreciate an office fitout for a pr company, open haus that we are just completing including the branding. The idea was to build investment pieces of joinery with BLUM hardware that can be dismantled and moved when the company expands. A very functional planning layout that clearly distinguished between public and private areas with glimpses through to other rooms. Each particular space has it's open specific look with materials and finishes to suit. Public areas are delineated as silver and gold metallics with the company logo of turquoise as the single colour insertion. The linear silver planes also form the main corridor and storage units to the staff workstation areas beyond. All storage areas are finished in high lacquer hot saturated colours with black internal carcasses. Conference room (plaster birds and leaf lights) and breakout space (leaves and lawn) have witty and quirky details that reference the Clients attitude to enjoying work and referencing open haus. Boardroom has it's own digitally printed carpet, woven gold fabric and rubberised metallic chair frames and movable resin boardroom table 3m x 1.8m in signature open haus turquoise resin."

Conference Room- Brunschwig & Fils Linen upholstered walls with plaster bed details inset to wall.

Lacquered Staff Storage Walls and turquoise workstations. Breakout Space with lawn digitally carpet yet to be installed and black pinstripe suiting and mutli stripes to purpose designed sofas.


Laurent Bourgois

The Paris-based firm of Laurent Bourgois consists of works in interior architecture and design. They have an impeccable grasp on classic and contemporary styles, and include many ethnic touches (and occasionally modern) in their designs. Below are works that wowed me...2 tiled kitchens with very different vibes, relaxing bedrooms, graphic artwork, it's cultured yet comfortable.


Colombe Stevens

Colombe Stevens is a Parisian architect whose interiors are out of this world. His work can be found all over the world, and his designs reflect the way of life of his clients. Modern, rustic, minimal, earthy, it's dramatic in basic forms.


Juan Manuel

Juan Manuel Montes de Oca is a young architect from Buenos Aires, Argentina, who emailed us recently. He just began his independent career, having worked for an architect before, and wanted to share with us his first work. It's the design of a small apartment for a young man who was on a tight budget. Juan Manuel designed EVERYTHING - the sofa, table, lighting, all but the Jacobsen chairs. I am so impressed. I adore the low wall unit that runs the length of the space - ideal for HIFI storage and propping artwork. I am also quite taken with the dining table and how it attaches to the wall.

Juan Manuel also included some photos of a small boutique he designed 2 years ago that is so sleek and modern I had to share it too.

Thank you so much Juan Manuel for sharing your work with us. I think you've got a very successful career ahead of you!


Galo Verdesoto

It's amazing what you can find when you follow link to link. While devouring the fabulous photos on Paul Whicheloe's website I was lead to the work of Galo Verdesoto. This New York based architect has a flair for drama. His contemporary space are clean and elegant,open airy and bathed in beautiful light. Positive and negative space play off each other and colour is a vital counterfoil to the lashings of lovely white.
