    Hamra House by Studio DinellJohansson // Sweden.

    25th July

    This beautifully simple, compact summer house in Hamra, Sweden was designed by architecture studio DinellJohansson. The client initially asked for an existing barn to be converted into a summer house. Instead, DinellJohansson designed them a barn-like home. Don’t you love it when architects don’t just listen to their client’s brief, but rather go on to create something even better. I love that shit! The house is a simple rectangular structure with single open space, focusing on sustainability and minimisation of waste. Unique furniture and joinery assembled from remaining or reused building material and clever use of space make this house one of a kind.



    Villa E in Morocco by Studio KO.

    23rd July

    Sitting at the peak of a hill in the Moroccan mountain ranges, Villa E rises up from the landscape, like a form extruded from the earth. The locally sourced Oika stone walling reads like an extension of the landscape. From the road in the valley, only the tiniest window openings pierce through the structure, veiling the life that occurs inside. Hidden within is a private mountain retreat by Studio KO. With studio bases in both Paris and Morocco, Villa E represents the convergence of ideas from both design cultures. Studio KO weave together the contemporary minimalism of Paris with the earthy textures of the Moroccan aesthetic.



    Refurbished Heritage Apartment in Madrid Photographed by Juan Baraja.

    2nd July

    It’s always a tricky thing, negotiating a contemporary brief with an existing heritage space. While many designers might obsessively refashion a square peg for a round hole, revealing as little evidence of this process as possible, Spanish architect Francisco Javier Eguiluz takes the opposite approach. Instead, he expresses some of the incongruous quirks that result from this process. Dog legged floor finishes, new rooms that straddle over two existing rooms and the deliberate expression of demolished walls. This is a space that does not try to paper over its past.
