Mid-century meets traditional in this Lisbon apartment by André Vilar de Azevedo of Studio AVA and the result is fresh and decidedly on trend.

“We are passionate about long lasting design, working with a balance of opposing elements and materials to create a sense of energy and intrigue.

So few photographs in their portfolio but so much to like.  One to keep an eye on Stroud based design studio Crittall & Hill.

A double-height void is the centrepiece of this extension to an Edwardian house by De Rosee Sa. The Dulwich home is in an area with strict heritage guidelines and the client wished to enhance the character of the property while remaining sympathetic to the surroundings. A wonderful example of how modern and heritage can work in harmony with each other.

Elegant and beautifully curated this Elizabeth Bay, Sydney apartment by Handelsmann + Khaw like the previous London apartment relies on a restrained colour palette and natural materials to imbue a sense of peace and calm in a hectic city. Chic, sophisticated and refined. Devine.
