Concrete is the material of the 21 century, and it doesn’t seems like we are getting tired of it quite yet either. It is raw, clean, edgy and simple in its look, but is so easy to combine and make different expressions with. If you want a different look than the typical tiled bathroom, why not go for a bathroom or just parts of it in concrete.

This is for sure a unique apartment, designed and decorated by the apartments owner, architect Arash Nourinejad and his wife Kristina Lykke Tønnesen. His passion for drawing and building has given this apartment some creative solutions. Arash Nourinejad has designed and custom made the sofa in the living room that folds out over different levels. The quadratic and asymmetric sofa consists of handmade storage boxes of ash veneer. It utilizes the space and gives more seating spaces than what a normal sofa would do in this space, and creates a way more interesting corner. The over dimensioned floor lamp creates a cool and stylish touch to it. The delightful colour palette of blue, brown and white goes throughout the apartment.
An abandoned ruin converted in to a trendy and popular nightlife spot in the center of Budapest. The visual presence of the once residential building has been kept, so the look of abandonment, damaged and run-down walls is still the overall visual effect. But the framework of the structure has been renovated to develop a safe and secure space. Beside from that it is the graphic and branding elements that gives this space its identity.

Terra e Tuma constructed this house for architect and studio director Danilo Terra and his family in Sao Paulo. It is a three level storey, where the lowest level is a storey below the street. In all privacy all of the living spaces is situated on the lowest floor in a big open plan that includes the kitchen, social area and a workspace. Large glass doors brings the outside in to the living room, and lets green plants grow up on the walls and emphasize the building even on the inside. The wooden doors, kitchen cabinets and furniture makes an excellent contrast to the concrete blocks that are exposed throughout the space. The artwork on the outside, in front of the entrance is by Alexandre Mancini, and are created especially for the house.
Empty industrial warehouses is the new inventive way to create new modern spaces. Use of old space and convert it in to either apartments, as we often see as great successful and beautiful projects, or commercial spaces as high quality restaurants is still a big trend. Restaurant Stork is situated in an old industrial building at businesspark De Overkant, and is overlooking the waterfront. There have been different actors involved in the development and transformation of this former warehouse. Cube Architecten and Soluz are on contract to oversee the whole redevelopment of the De Overkant site. In the transformation of Stork local design studio Interior Shock took part of what today is Europe’s biggest fish restaurant. They kept the raw finishes that characterises a warehouse so it still has a industrial feel, added texttiles to soften up and elements as old cable reels that helps build the seafood concept. Summertime you can have a seat outside and enjoy the sunny side of the river.

What a beautiful set of knives to put on your cut board and shine up in your kitchen. Industrial designers Ian Murchison and Rohan Thakar designed the knives to explore an alternative emotion to the standard kitchen knives you see every day. For now it is just a prototype, but hopefully it can get in production. I’ll be one of the first to buy them. The beautiful maple wood is sealed and is easy to clean. They are simply beautiful – see more The Federal

From the outside this house is a very modern and contemporary piece of architecture. And so are the base of the inside, with clean surfaces of limestone that gives that popular look of concrete. Initially a very minimalistic look, so seeing how the decoration has turned the house in to a warm and personal home in clear opposition to minimalism is a pure joy to the eye. The yellow is a perfect colour drop to this space. The decoration is a mix of different types of wood, and from different eras; put together they talk a very personal and warm home. And that is just what a home is about. Surround yourself with the things you love and it will all sorts itself out.
