Contemporary Spanish living 

Shaped almost like a child's drawing of a house these two pavilions have been positioned to take advantage of the views and the sunlight, providing that all important connection between inside and out. The buildings may be clean lined and minimal in their shape but the interiors are warm and welcoming, overflowing with bright light and I'm guessing cooling breezes when they arise. Contemporary Spanish living at its best by ÁBATON.

Working on a Saturday

You know what I say week after week. If you have to drag yourself work on a weekend it helps if it's somewhere stylish. "Drag" is not a word I'd use when it comes to Espacio Nueva, an event space, photography studio and co-working space in Madrid. I want to move in and so will you when you see the kitchen and all the wonderful plants. Design by Sara Uriarte of Cordero Atelier.

House of Mirrors

Mirrors. They reflect light. They increase the sense of space in a room. They can mess with your mind ... in a good way in the case of the "invisible" pillar in this top floor apartment in Plaça Catalunya in the centre of Barcelona. The renovation by Nook Architects uses "contemporary and warm finishes (to) highlight the original envelope, which is only altered to bring back a spirit more honest to the building’s tectonics and to allow it to evolve to today’s standard of comfort and living style." In other words stylish modern living in an amazing old building in a great location. Perfect.

A beach house on the Costa Brava

When the location is this amazing and the view is to die for, when the house is simple in its bones and that's a good thing, when all you want is a place to gather and make wonderful family holiday memories then this might just be the house for you. The house is on the Costa Brava in Spain and the sympathetic restoration and renovation by Nook Architects allows the house to remain true to its traditional, mediterranean origins while providing a stylish, contemporary living space.
