    Nikbor Hostel by Normal Estudio // Barcelona.

    4th February

    Nikbor Hostel by Normal Estudio sits in a prime location on the top floors of a classical building in Barcelona. Overlooking the Jardinets de Gracia at the top of Paseo de Gracia, the hostel began on a privileged note.

Nor did I imagine it would be possible to turn them into such witty and sculptural works of art…

    16th August

    You see, as much as I love a project with a big fat budget to work on or to share with you, I am also quite partial towards projects that were time and budget challenged, but have managed to rise to the occasion. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again a thousand times if I have to – good design and good taste (especially) have nothing to do with good budgets.
