On March 1st 2014 our friends at Rogerseller officially launched Valcucine kitchens into the Australian market, and I’m here to tell you all about it. Hooray! Valcucine have been designing and manufacturing products for 30 years, based on the four fundamental rules of eco-compatibility. This consistent focus has elevated Valcucine to be one of the most respected and sought-after kitchen manufacturers in the world. Not only this, the ‘New Logica’ is a revolutionary system designed to improve the interaction of Man with the Kitchen. In other words, this is the most ergonomically designed kitchen system. Ever.
Never mind the fact we initially thought this was an interior of a milk-bar (rather than an artisan cocktail bar of alcoholic variety), the beautifully crafted space is a little jewellery box carefully designed, resolved and detailed within an inch of it’s life. The Munich bar interior, designed by Fabian A. Wagner of Buero Wagner with Andreas Kreft, pays tribute to the local Bavarian culture and craftsmanship.

Ghent-based practice NU Architectuuratelier have refurbished this two-storey house in the suburbs of Leuven in Belgium. Can we please talk about that stair cascading down in front of the double height window? A bit of a died-and-gone-to-heaven moment, no? The graphic black lines of the staircase are carried through in the detailing of the balustrade and sliding steel-framed glass doors that act as a divider between the public and the private areas of the house. The overall feel is pared back, rational and reduced to bare essentials, with the red floor acting as a perfect dose of the unexpected.
NU Architectuuratelier’s Bomastraat House is a single family home housed within the walls of an old industrial building, featuring a translucent ceiling.
