The idea of the project was “Light, Rhythm and Harmony”. Paris-based decorator Jean-Louis Deniot designed this apartment on Rue De Lille for himself. After big changes in the planning of the apartment Jean-Louis Deniot decided to take elegant color palette of grey, ochre, gold and silver to give the space charm and refinement. With the smart combination of lacquer and matte surfaces the space got special shining and little bit of glamour.

This amazing modern residence featuring colorful interior and mid century furniture pieces is located in Los Angeles, California. It was designed by Jamie Bush & Co.
Description by Jamie Bush & Co.
The owners of this home had a taste for mid century pieces, some with pops of colors and some more on the natural side. They have three young children and wanted something playful but also adult enough to grow into as they mature. The focus was on having variations of the theme of a bright pop of color in each room grounded by a more natural palette of materials.

Check out this wonderful house located in Wilson, Wyoming, Us. The project was sited on a low lying wetland that demanded consideration due to a high water table. The solution to this problem was to elevate the house three feet above existing grade and to utilize an insulated slab on grade to avoid the probability of fostering mold growth in a crawl space. The Architectural water features we used to enhance the project while at the same time provided positive drainage.
Additionally, the client wanted to avoid remove any of the mature trees on the site and still capture the view to the mountain range to the north. Careful siting allowed both objectives to be attained. Low energy consumption was a goal and this was attained utilizing an open loop ground source heat pump for both heating and cooling. Indoor temperatures are conserved utilizing R-40 and R-65 wall and roof assemblies.

The Felix Nussbaum Haus originally designed by Daniel Libeskind in 1998, was his first completed project. The new Libeskind extension opened in May 2011 and provides an entrance hall with museum shop as well as learning center on the upper floor.
Attached to the Kunstgeschichtliche Museum and connected to the FNH by a glass bridge it transforms the existing buildings into a cohesive complex with the new extension acting as a gateway. As a part of the transformation, the 2,000 square meter lower floor of the KGM has been redesigned to include a flexible lecture hall and event space, caterings facilities, cloak rooms and restrooms for both buildings.

Norm Architects and Danish designhouse Menu have joined forces with Copenhagen restaurateurs Cofoco, to create a distinctly urban restaurant with obvious romantic and rural references. Höst is an embodiment of the clash between romanticism and modernity. A space of multiple stories intertwining and correlating to form an inspirational and aesthetic universe for all senses.
An obvious and reoccurring characteristic of both concept and cooperation is the juxtaposition of elements. Höst is rustic gone simplistic. Rural gone urban. Past gone contemporary. The classic virtues of Nordic cooking have found its contemporary counterpart at Höst. In the kitchen traditional ingredients are combined with the visions characterizing New Nordic Cuisine. And in the restaurant loads of green plants, woolen blankets and the warmth of used wooden planks soften and complement the tight no-nonsense architectural aesthetic so distinct for Norm. Furthermore, Norm has ventured into sustainable interior design by implementing details such as cut-up Euro-pallets, vintage lamps and even windows from an old hospital.
The juxtapositions found throughout Höst and New Norm Dinnerware serve as the foundation for a symbiotic relation that comes to define what is “New Nordic”: A timeless aesthetic rooted in traditions and driven forward by visions.
