House in Inglewood by Alair Homes Chilliwack

  Description by Alair Homes Chilliwack This was a challenging project for very discerning clients. The home was originally owned by the client’s father, and she inherited it when he passed. Care was taken to preserve the history in the home while upgrading it for the current owners. This home exceeds current energy codes, and all mechanical and electrical systems have been completely replaced. The clients remained in the home for the duration of the reno, so it was completed in two phases. Phase 1 involved gutting the basement, removing all asbestos containing materials (flooring, plaster), and replacing all mechanical and electrical systems, new spray foam insulation, and complete new finishing. The clients lived upstairs while we did the basement, and in the basement while we did the main floor. They left on a vacation while we did the asbestos work. Phase 2 involved a rock retaining wall on the [ Continue reading ]

Gothic Cottage by Daniel Contelmo Architects

  Description by Daniel Contelmo Architects When the homeowners approached Daniel Contelmo Architects to design their new home, they knew they wanted something different. Daniel Contelmo sketched several options for them, but quickly realized that a modern style was not suitable. Inspired by the gatehouses of local estates, many of which were stone cottages, Daniel Contelmo settled on a gothic cottage design, seamlessly blending the two styles. The result was unique, an organic and whimsical home that perfectly reflected the clients’ wishes. The exterior is dominated by steeply pitched roofs and clover windows reminiscent of the carpenter gothic style, which was predominant in the area. The metal roof reflects the sky, lending an airy feeling that contrasts the stone at the base of the main entrance. Graceful arches soften the roofline and, to the right, a swooping fence lengthens the front elevation. The surrounding landscape influenced much of the design; [ Continue reading ]

Loft F5.04 by SMLXL Studio

Description by Boysplaynice Photography & Concept After a long search of an apartment offering both interesting and atypical elements, and located in central Prague, this proved to be an ideal choice. Time management was perfect, and the arrangement with the developer was that the apartment would be made over as shell and core, meeting only the most basic approval standards. The owners also addressed our studio ahead of time, providing us with enough time to think about the project in detail. As soon as the owners were handed the keys to the apartment, we were ready to begin with the changes. Upon our first visit of the apartment, we faced an unpleasant surprise – the windows. The industrial design was replaced with plastic windows, although the developer had committed to keeping the original design. Since this was a corner apartment and windows played a key role in the interior, the [ Continue reading ]

Triple Bunk-Beds

If you have a numerous family the triple bunk-beds are the perfect schemes for your children’s bedroom. Not demanding much space, this bed design also has an attractive outline, offering lots of installation possibilities. The following pictures establish some assemblying alternatives in which you could choose toinstall your own triple bunk-beds. What is more, they permit you to paint them in any colour you desire, to help you integrate them in the ambience of the room. As we all know, children love bright, bold colours, so make sure you give them what they want. This bed design also offers the parents the possibility to personalise them, just to fit their child’s personality even more. For boys, dark colours and some cliparts containing cars or ships would be perfect. As for the little girls, delicate shades of pink or yellow would do, altogether with dainty flowers or butterflies. Rustic and yet very fancy, [ Continue reading ]

Apartment in Panama by dos G Arquitectos

“The concept for the renovation of spaces was to update the floor plan of a 30 years old apartment in Punta Paitilla (Panama City) with an old distribuition in order to adapt it to the demands of contemporary life, for the current owner that enjoys cooking, wants his privacy, has no need of using air conditioning because prefers cross ventilation, enjoys the “dolce far niente” of sitting and watching a sunset. The most important element was to include the views/sky and the exterior as a part of interior design. We made punctual demolitions in order to achieve this modern layout of open spaces that intercommunicate and relate with the environment and landscape. The apartment is the entire 26th floor of the building, so we were able to re-design the entire lobby, creating a new and more central entry. From this lobby the owner has another service entry to the apartment’s [ Continue reading ]

Colors For Spring

Spring is coming and we need new inspiration, new ideas. But when it comes to decorate our room with new furniture or little decorations we have to know what colors are in trend for this year. It seems that a one color look for your room is now enough to make it look great! YELLOW Yellow is not the easiest color to decorate with, but if you get it right, yellow can be sunny and uplifting. All you have to do is to play with textures and patterns. ORANGE A more contemporary choice than strong reds, orange works best when used in moderation. GREEN Fresh, moss greens work best in a hall, garden room or conservatory – rooms that link to the outside. There are also some colors that you can use by itself: blue, pastel pink,violet.
