Kameha Grand Zürich

The Kameha Grand is a new hotel that opened in Zürich in March of this year. It is one of the most beautifully designed hotels I have ever seen, thanks to the talent and products of Dutch design guru Marcel Wanders. With modern architecture by tecArchitecture and neo-baroque interiors  by Mr. Wanders, this hotel has everything. It is luxurious and has themed rooms to match anyone's desires. I need to plan a trip to Switzerland!

The home of Ross Lovegrove 

The 5,000 sq ft Notting Hill, London home and working studio of architect and product designer Ross Lovegrove is for sale via Domus Nova and all I can say is WHOA. I would prefer to call it a museum. This three storey former steel framed factory building, which was originally created by Richard Seifert and later reconfigured and extended by Miska Miller has played host to the creation of some of Ross Lovegrove’s most significant product designs and today remains a design archive of pieces that were created specifically for the property and have never been produced elsewhere. Central to the success of the redevelopment of this late 1950’s commercial building was the addition of the much feted ‘DNA Staircase’. Locating workspaces on the ground floor to allow for direct access from the street, the upper floors were designed to follow the principles of upside down living, with the bedrooms and study areas on the central floor and the entire top of the building given over to one 30m living and dining areas. Elsewhere, integral details such as the kitchen cabinetry, which was created from honeycombed fibreglass aircraft flooring, the carbon fibre sinks in the bathrooms and the huge 2.5m sliding doors on each room will remain in the building as a testament to Miller and Lovegrove and their love of utilitarian design.

Stalking old meets new

Georgian facade vs modernist interior. That's how the real estate agent describes this Woollahra, Sydney home. "An Iain Halliday creation, this house has a dramatic mix of timber and glass behind its heritage facade. Floating above a moat in a walled courtyard, it's your 'castle' of modernist design." Yada, yada, yada. Let's just say "yum". Link here while it lasts.

Loft ESN

Sharing some loft love on this Monday morning. I love a good conversion and this one keeps a wonderful balance between cold/modern and warm/rustic elements. By German architecture and identity design firm Ippolito Fleitz Group. The Palmscher Park in Esslingen is a former army barracks from the late Wilhelmine era. When an agency moved out of a loft space at the short end of a two-storey block, a family with two small children sought to transform the site into their new home. An open and spacious living space with differentiated living zones and tantalising visual perspectives was created across 400 square metres. Read more of the juicy details here

Home 11

Light floods through generous skylights into this repurposed former garage in Amsterdam by i29. Clean lines, contemporary materials, simple spaces that speak for themselves. Stark white with walls of oak and accents of black all grounded by a stunning mossy green and white carpet.
