Home tour: Tsuruoka House in Tokyo by Kiyoaki Takeda Architects
As an architect who contributes to this alarming trend, Takeda set himself a personal challenge.

In turn, offsetting his impact on the natural environment and perhaps establishing a blueprint for future residences. […]

Tacchini previews ‘New Collection 2021’ among Roman ruins in Italy
Equal parts romantic and mesmerising, the captivating campaign imagery created by Tacchini for the New Collection 2021 invites observers on an intimate and miraculous tour of discovery. “Crumbling walls and imagined rooms, blind arcades and colonnades reaching for the sky” form the spaces that surround and reveal the new products, creating a place where, the […]

Timber and stone form the public shelter by Behark in northern Spain
Herriko Plaza is perhaps the area of greatest public importance in Larrabetzu, predominantly due to its location – a central spot from which the township radiates. The quaint, open-air square sees the coming together of residents and tourists for social, celebratory and recreational activities. But the lack of covered public space in the urban centre […]

Step inside Hotel June, the Proper’s suave Californian spin-off
With multiple stateside locations, including San Francisco, Downtown Los Angeles and Austin, the Proper hotel group claims to offer a “looser kind of luxury” through its Kelly Wearstler-designed properties, part-owned by her husband Brad Korzen (who is one of three co-founders of the now cult-status brand).

La Galilée portico by Kengo Kuma safeguards future of medieval stonework
The sudden need to shelter the portal and its intricate stonework follows the discovery of precious polychromatic sculptures that date back to medieval times, as well as examples from more modern periods, up to the 17th century. “The uniqueness of this portal, dating from the 12th century, is represented by these multi-coloured stone relics typical […]

Spheres and cylinders: Masquespacio pushes the limits of porcelain in Italy
Roca’s presence in this year’s edition of Cersaie invites visitors “to pause and ‘listen’ to the walls in the space, and get lost in the curves and lines of its perfect geometry,” the designers explain.

News of the hotel arrives as many Australians continue to endure lockdowns, while international travel has been a no-go for almost two years.

Qinchang Village Town Hall in rural China by Studio 10
Mirroring the approach of the project’s first phase, the Qinchang Village Town Hall precinct has played with the geometry and motif of arches, “which is a typical component in the local, traditional semi-underground dwellings,” the architects say. The cluster of buildings adopt “cast-in-place” concrete to achieve a series of fluid archways which have been extruded […]

YSG Studio designed a kitchen inspired by Fantales for Laminex Australia
To me, colour and nostalgia are both wonderful things and each has its place in architecture and design. To be quite honest, I breathe a joyful sigh of relief every time I see an interior swathed in anything other than fifty shades of grey (of all the visuals that book mustered, surely the colour palette […]

Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s vision for the Arc de Triomphe realised after 60 years
The artists went on to fabric-wrap a number of other monuments and buildings in the mid-1960s, and pursued more than a dozen ambitious projects around the world in the years that followed. They wrapped a 92,900-square-metre section of the Australian coastline in 1969 and cloaked Paris’ Pont-Neuf bridge with fabric in 1985. Ten years later, […]
