    Rwanda Education Centre by Dominikus Stark Architekten // Nyanza, Rwanda.

    22nd April

    Bricks. They’re probably my favourite. Bricks skillfully dispersed around a beautiful courtyard – ding dong! We’re journeying into the heart of darkness today, to Nyanza, Rwanda, where stands this remarkable Education Centre designed by Dominikus Stark Architekten. The photographs are from the architect’s website. To my eye, the low, bricky forms of this building immediately recall the Fredensborg houses by Jorn Utzon.

    MSGM Fashion Headquarters by Fabio Ferrillo of OFFARCH // Milan, Italy.

    28th February

    Italian architect Fabio Ferrillo has given new life to an abandoned early 20th-Century blacksmith’s workshop in Milan, by transforming it into the new MSGM fashion headquarters. The original space was seriously run-down, but it’s crude and post-industrial aesthetic is now it’s most fascinating and contemporary aspect.



    Olympic Studios London by Simone McEwan // Cinema, Cafe + Dining Rooms.

    17th February

    Previously a renowned recording studio for the who’s who of the 20th century music legends (think Rolling Stones, The Who, Prince, Nick Cave and Madonna), Olympic Studios in London has recently been transformed into an independent cinema, café, dining rooms, and a members club. The design concept was created by Simone McEwan, previously Concept Designer at Selfridges and Design Director at Soho House, who embraced the legacy of the building and translated it into every facet of the Olympic experience.



    Retrosuperfuture Store by Andrea Caputo // New York City.

    31st January

    If you’re a sucker for hipster retail spaces, no-nosense industrial aesthetic and New York City (who the hell isn’t?) then boy do I have a treat for you today. Retrosuperfuture is an Italian sunglasses label with their first recently opened flagship store in the US that has me feeling weak at the knees. For my money, the stripped back, industrial chic hits that sweet-spot between the luxurious and the austere.
