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.
This nimble beach house designed by John Wardle Architects creates a series of sensory and spatial experiences that frame the panoramic ocean views within.
I stumbled upon this glorious shelf while looking for something completely unrelated. I love it when that happens. My “click fest” lead me to the website of Takuya Hamajima, Japanese maker and artist based in Tokyo. I love this shelf. A lot. It redefines what a shelf should look like in the first place. It’s intersecting lines, interlocking objects and geometries are reminiscent of an architectural drawing – a floor-plan of a circular building (drawn on Yellowtrace of course).
Scanlan Theodore’s newest stores – in Sydney’s Paddington and The Strand Arcade, and Melbourne’s Armadale – have been designed by Sydney based practice, Meacham Nockles McQualter. Like the iconic Australian fashion label, the architects approached these retail fit-outs with the same commitment to simple, modern classic design, centring around beautiful materials and attentive craftsmanship.
This converted warehouse space was remodelled by San Francisco based practice LINEOFFICE Architecture. The weightiness of the post and beam structure and the tactile grain of the Douglas Fir were at once seductive for both the client and architect. With such an exquisitely crafted timber structure, the architects were keen to honour the original bones of the space.
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.
