white

love / hate

this house is totally a case of oooooh i love the interior, but blegh why did they have to put that white block in the middle of a street filled with pretty old houses? really? way to ruin the neighbourhood guys.

i can hear my dad in the back of my mind saying, no sense of place. with a disappointed shake of his head… and i’d have to agree! but i can appreciate the interior at least.

discussion is welcome, i’m sure opinions will be divided on this. via contemporist.

flat #1 & 2

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.

the project centers around a 1.6 x 3 m rotating door separating the living room from the bedroom.

(as seen on style files, this is glamorous, simple blueprint, design fragment and more.) i’m not a fan of the chandeliers, but the designer shoes & bags lazily strewn on the floor don’t hurt…
