This converted warehouse in Yoro, Japan has become a modern pearl. One of the wishes from the client was that for a living space where the presence of the family would always be felt. Considering the large open space with the ash kitchen as center of the house, with an inviting and beautiful white stair to the loft that houses the kids, their wish has carefully been taken into account. The big white box beneath the loft hides away a bedroom and a bathroom. The symmetrical hung bulb lights draw your eyes towards the ceiling and creates even a bigger sense of volume. It is typical Japanese in its decoration. Minimalistic and clean.

Artistic couple Ruth Campau and Michael Mørk knows how to use colour, and is not afraid to experience with palettes. Their 147 kvm house at Amager in Copenhagen is Bauhaus inspired and dominated by their collection of art and design icons. And it is pops of colours everywhere. A quite bold choice is taken in the bathroom, making it yellow from top to toe. The bathroom has been rebuild and was drawn by Spark Arkitekter.

A company that believes in new ways of working, they changed the company structure and built a new one. Three new departments Think, Do and Make. Alrik Koudenburg and RJW Elsinga embraced the creative and new thinking strategy of the company and created a unique office space. The department of Think is based around a feeling of freedom in green landscape. The palette is in different green tones, and with glass and big plants it creates a feeling of being in the nature. Ideas can freely flow and be developed. In the department of Do its a more city feel, a beehive, a dinamic and busy atmosphere where ideas are organized and carried through. Where the huge CMYK robots is housed is where the ideas is happening, the toolbox, where digital craftsmen and women bring the ideas to life. It is all customized and artists like the Dutch collective Kamp Horst or the Norwegian Anders Rockum has gone crazy on the walls. It is comics, it is graffiti, it is fun, it is creative and new thinking on high level.

Originally two victorian terrace units combined to one big family home. Architect and owner Simon Hanson worked with the sense of space, making a open, airy and atmosphere with a great flow of light. The beams in the ceiling have been highlighted with a bold use of color. The staircase is a wow factor in the room, and the lower part in timber hides away clutter. If you take a look at the bottom picture you can see a glimpse of the pool through the window, a quite cool effect.
