    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.



    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. As a place for young, independent travellers and students, Normal Estudio put a fresh spin on the original tone and turned the space into something completely new – a hybrid of stateliness and youthful freshness.



    Pablo & Rusty’s by Giant Design // Sydney.

    24th January

    Smack bang in the middle of Sydney CBD, Pablo & Rusty’s by Giant Design is the cranked up version of Saxon Wright’s Lane Cove café. The flagship store is consistent in tone – it’s warm and industrial, and has the same sustainable and ethical ethos. The difference is in the stature – this roastery is grand.



    Duddell’s by Ilse Crawford // Cultural Concept Destination in Hong Kong.

    17th January

    Duddell’s Hong Kong is a cultural concept venue designed by the one and only Ilse Crawford. Despite Duddell’s undeniable opulence and grandeur, Crawford took her signature humanistic approach to design, where people are placed at the centre of the project. The interior is reminiscent of a comfortable lounge room, with a double-Michelin-star-chef in the kitchen. Of course.



    Zumbo Cafe in Melbourne by Elenberg Fraser.

    13th January

    Adriano Zumbo’s first Melbourne patisserie needed to be something that stood out from the pack – and that’s where Elenberg Fraser came in. Taken on as their second annual ‘Graduate School’ program, a team of junior architects and designers were given free reign on the front of house fitout for the patisserie wunderkind. The brief was simple – stay true to the Zumbo brand and use a bit of pink.
