Didomestic apartment in Spain is a small, hyper-functional apartment situated in an attic of an old building in Madrid, designed by Elii Architects.
This Deliciously Curvalicious West Melbourne loft apartment by Adrian Amore is a knockout – that staircase, the articulation of light, the sinuous forms and fluid spaces… Everything about this project literally brought us to our knees. Emphasised by a monochrome white on white palette, the twisting, bending walls take centre-stage. Initially a much more square and conventional space, the interior took on a dynamic tone when the steel truss that cut through the space was removed. With much more room to play with, Mr Amore embraced the opportunity to create something more curvy and flexible.
The latest project by our friends from UDA Architetti sits on the mezzanine level of a building overlooking Turin’s Piazza San Carlo, the symbol of the city.This 150sqm three bedroom apartment is crafted with rigour and close attention to detail. Each element – the shape and size of surfaces, the furniture, objects and fittings, tells a story that goes beyond their initial appearance.

What I love the most about this space is the way colour was used strategically to highlight areas, create little events and delineate zones within the larger space. Such a fantastic way to to establish a mood in a room and tell a little story…
Carrer Avinyó apartment is situated at a major crossroads in Barcelona. Like the Flatiron Building in New York, where Broadway meets the city’s orthogonal grid, the triangular plan of the apartment’s interior registers a similar moment in Barcelona’s historic quarter – Plaça George Orwell. The architects’ first intervention was to strip back the internal partitions to reveal the junction and reconnect living in the apartment to the streets beyond…
