Entries in Argentina (6)


Working on a Saturday

You know what I say. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend then it helps if it's somewhere stylish. Love the juxtaposition of private and public areas in these offices in Buenos Aires by Estudio Carranza Arquitectura and Galvez Autunno. Mirrored box meeting room anyone? Cool.

A kitchen and bathroom renovation 

Buenos Aires based architect Maria Eugenia Carranza of Estudio Carranza emailed us about a couple of her latest projects. This kitchen and bathroom renovation was my favourite.

YES! followed by a fist pump.

Simple, minimalist but humming with the stories of the travellers who pass through. Unplug. Relax. Casa Helsinki.

Warhol) could really step this up a notch.
