WATCH: Highlights from the world of architecture and design.

For the second consecutive year, renowned interior designer Pierre Yovanovitch worked on the retail space for Villa Noailles, an arts centre in the provincial commune of Hyères. Located on the French Riviera, it’s a region the Nice-born designer knows well.

“I am fortunate to have a great and friendly working relationship with Jean-Pierre Blanc, founder of the Hyères International Fashion and Photography Festival, the Hyères Design Parade (dedicated to design) and the Toulon Design Parade (dedicated to interior architecture),” says Pierre. “Jean-Pierre commissioned me to do the interior of the Villa Noailles boutique in 2019, and now again in 2020.”

For this new iteration, which is on view until April 2021, Pierre – who kept the existing materials and structural elements – gave life to decor full of bright colours and geometric motifs, partly inspired by the rectangular plantings in the garden.

The eye-catching 100-square-meter space highlights the selection of contemporary and vintage design objects chosen in collaboration with the Graziella Semerciyan Art, Craft and Design Gallery, and pays homage to the cubist nature of the modernist house, which was originally designed in the 1920s by Robert Mallet-Stevens for art patrons Charles and Marie-Laure de Noailles.

Every hue in the space – such as the green-blue, red and pale pink – was specially created for this project in collaboration with the expert artisans of Atelier Mériguet-Carrère.

Through the eccentric design of the boutique, Pierre says he wanted to reflect the daring and experimenting spirit of Villa Noailles and its founder Marie-Laure “as well as the energy, the joy and the light that emanate from this mythical villa in the south of France”.

Bank to boutique: Acne Studios in Stockholm by Arquitectura-G
A former bank building in Stockholm became world-famous in 1973 when a robbery occurred, a dramatic six-day hostage situation unfurled and the phrase ‘Stockholm syndrome’ was uttered for the very first time. The term would go on to label the inexplicable bond formed between hostages and their captors, not just in Sweden but all around the globe.

Inside the Cotton On global headquarters by Greg Natale and PTID
The storied past of Geelong in the southwest of Melbourne has undoubtedly contributed to placing the bay-side region on the map. The city is well-known for its woollen mills that coincided with Geelong’s founding in 1837 and the National Wool Museum that now pays tribute to the industry’s heyday. There’s the circa-1859 Geelong AFL club (one of the world’s oldest clubs) and, of course, the now-shuttered Ford factory that was home of manufacturing for the iconic Falcon and the family of motor-vehicles that followed suit. But there’s another claim to fame to be added to the city’s brag-list: the region is the birthplace of retail empire Cotton On Group.

The colour-filled Toggle Hotel in Tokyo by Klein Dytham architecture
Designed by Tokyo-based firm Klein Dytham architecture (KDa), the Toggle Hotel is a truly efficient urban lodging in a city where real estate is notoriously hard to come by. Expertly wedged onto a triangle-shaped site in the beating heart of Tokyo, the nine-storey hotel is bound by the elevated Metropolitan Expressway which flies past on one side, while the main railway line that crosses Tokyo zooms past on the opposite side.
