“A former glass factory was transformed into single family homes … The project started from a bare construction. The idea was to design the entire interior in an industrial cosy natural way. The use of chalk, concrete, steel windows, marbles, oak floorings and linen curtains. To have an energy neutral building had never an effect on the interior but is a great plus. This project is a perfect example of an added value in a beautiful collaboration between client and interior architect.”
It’s a masterclass in modern Belgian design. The spare beauty, the use of grey, the simple material palette. DS Apartment in Gent by Æ Studio.

It’s like I say week in week out. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it’s somewhere stylish. Gowanus Work Space by Jesse Paris Lamb.
Dining inside restaurants is forbidden again while covid numbers skyrocket and temperatures drop here in Ottawa which means you can wear many layers and dine under a tent surrounded by heat lamps, order in or cook your own damn dinner. It’s been a while since I dined in a restaurant and I’m fairly certain I have never dined inside one that was decorated in steampunk style and I really dig this one, located in a traditional terrace house on Kaohsiung city, Taiwan, and designed by HAO Design.

I really should stop real estate stalking. More to the point I really should stop lurking on The Modern House‘s website. Then I wouldn’t be blown away by this industrial repurposing. The amazing space was a once a brewery cooperage in Clerkenwell. Be still my beating heart. It’s my industrial ideal. But it’s not only the closed borders thanks to corona virus that are stopping me from buying this amazing home. It’s the price tag of £7,250,000. Sigh!
Part gallery, part apartment, all style. The Milan loft home of Tommaso Spinzi of Spinzi Design a Milan and Melbourne based interior design firm is inspirational and aspirational. I think I’d take one of everything from contemporary to design classics from the 70s and 80s. It’s my kryptonite.
