Big ideas for a small Art Deco apartment

"The brief was to breath new life into an un-renovated 42sqm one bedroom apartment from the 1930s to provide sufficient relax, play and work spaces for a young professional couple."

At 42sqm the footprint is small but clever storage solutions and design means that the living is large. The Hacienda by Adriano Pupilli Architect.

Book storage heaven

The study in Giorgio Armani's home in Milan, where floor to ceiling shelving galley-style take centre stage in this long and narrow space. Oh yes! Via Vogue UK

A Brooklyn artist loft 

As much as I love that townhouse from my previous post, I will always and forever dream about living in a loft. This Brooklyn loft blows me away with its outdoor space, stunning kitchen and jaw-dropping book shelves. Again by BWArchitects. This dramatic conversion of a light manufacturing warehouse to an artist live/work loft studio juxtaposes the gritty, industrial character of the building exterior with warm, expansive interior spaces flooded by natural light. A retractable translucent wall divides the living and working areas. When closed, its translucency directs filtered light from the linear skylight and northern exposure rear facade towards the library and studio areas. A large sloped skylight acts as a space definer between the live and work areas and a white steel and glass staircase connects the lower level with sleeping rooms and a large roof deck occupying the floor above.

Edison Six

Benedek reached out to us about an interior design project he recently completed - a family home in Herminamez┼Ĺ, just outside Budapest. With a garage, rooftop garden, ground floor laundry room, tons of book storage in the living/dining rooms and a fireplace, this house has it all. But it is the decor that is totally irresistible. With pieces from Benedek's store Szimpla Deisgn Shop the home is fresh, fun and every single inch is carefully though out and impeccably decorated. And if anyone in that area REALLY loves it - it is for sale! You can read all of the details in Benedek's blog post

LOVE!

I cannot wait until I have my third floor library set up instead of having book piles all over the floor. This library corner is giving me heart palpitations. What a gem!!! Via Peti Lau.
