i saw this awesome loft makeover on Food52 and i couldn’t help but share, it’s so well designed and so much thought has gone into every detail. i highly recommend reading the entire article for all the info. the flat is in Hackney, London and is pretty small: only 46m2 (500 square feet)…
Klara and Klemen are students of architecture who live in an old house in Moste, Ljubljana, the capital city of Slovenia. they regularly walked past the once grand villa hidden amongst the trees in this old neighborhood, and wondered about the abandoned looking apartment inside – which, it turned out, had…
hey, want to move to sweden with me? malmö, specifically. it’s pretty cold there right now but we can hole up in this apartment. it’s for sale for R3,5m. did you know the swedish krona’s exchange rate is basically on par with the south african rand? i didn’t either. it makes me feel pretty great, except a coffee there probably costs 30 bucks which makes me feel the opposite. it’s okay, we can take our own coffee & live like monks! if you can bring the 3.5 million we’ll be set.
oh, you only have 1 million? let’s buy this one, then.
i could show you more but 100% of these apartments basically look the same inside.
i’m moving into a new place this month, and i’m excited. i’ll be living with my very good friends (yay) and just the thought of experiencing a change puts a spring in my step. have been catching myself looking at interiors online, which is kind of futile since i don’t have a money tree (yet). yeah. so, this is kind of what i would like my house to look like… one day. or at least elements of. taste veers drastically from very light & airy to pretty dark & moody.

the design of this attic to maximise space & provide for various living areas on different levels is pretty darn cool.
instead of taking the existing rooms as a starting point, the architect placed a large three-dimensional object in the space, creating a play of heights and a second level. the mezzanine-like structure not only provides a separate sleeping area and extra storage, but also screens off a kitchen area and bathroom.
holy wow check out this flat in paris… though i think i would be shit scared to climb those stairs.
facing the eglise saint-gervais on one side and the hôtel de ville de paris on the other, this 95 sqm apartment occupies the whole of the the two top floors of an 18th century building.
this one is also pretty cool,
the project centers around a 1.6 x 3 m rotating door separating the living room from the bedroom.
