LSL Architects have undertaken a breathtaking transformation of an 18th-century barn in the picturesque French countryside, turning it into charming gites that blend history and modern comfort seamlessly. With a vision that celebrates the rustic charm of the original structure while infusing it with contemporary elements, LSL Architects have breathed new life into this historic gem.

Carefully preserving the barn’s original architectural features, such as exposed wooden beams and stone walls, the gites exude an authentic sense of history and character. The interior spaces have been thoughtfully reimagined to offer all the amenities one would expect from modern accommodations, without compromising on the unique ambiance.

Riad Hiptage

Posted on Sun, 30 Jul 2023 by KiM

I thought it was about time that I spend a Sunday sharing Morocco’s version of a castle (I guess more of a palace) so welcome to Riad Hiptage. Located in the Medina of Tetouan, it was built in the 19th century and renovated in 2020, has 10 bedrooms, 6 full baths, large Moroccan salons, two bright patios, a terrace and a fountain. This home is to die for – from the arch details and columns to the tilework and stained glass windows, the massive ceiling height and courtyard…..I cannot fathom living in a home this beautiful.

Working on a Saturday

It’s like I say week in week out. If yhou have to drag yhourself into work on a weekend it helps if it’s somewhere stylish. Sana Labs, Stockholm by Holleroed.

I love colour and pattern and tend to lean towards maximalism. And then I fall head over heels in love with a home like this and I start to question everything about myself. At this point having a supremely neutral and refined, pared back home like this would make for such a pleasant second dwelling. It sure gives off serene vibes like no other.
