    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.



    Gallery Post // Bomastraat House by NU Architectuuratelier.

    14th February

    NU Architectuuratelier’s Bomastraat House is a single family home housed within the walls of an old industrial building, featuring a translucent ceiling.



    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.



    Camper Flagship Showroom by Neri & Hu // Shanghai, China.

    5th November

    The Camper store is a reinterpreted two storey traditional house, sliced in half and opening itself up to the “laneway” within the warehouse which it sits. The slice is expressed with a bright red rubber, which is the same rubber used for Camper’s shoe souls and branding. An angled mirror terminates the laneway so the reflection visually completes the other half of the sliced house. Materials have been recycled from demolished residential sites, creating a diverse and textural palette, steeped in the history and memory of the city. The wire hangers displaying shoes from above make reference to the drying laundry of the alleyways…



    Loft by Lissoni Associati // Monza, Italy.

    14th October

    Converted warehouses are a dime a dozen these days, but how’s this for a fascinating case of repurposing? Lissoni Associati have taken an old private theatre and transformed it into a home. Monumental and so strictly restrained, this loft it so majestic it almost seems imaginary…



    Avigdor 22 Event Space by Pitsou Kedem Architects // Tel Aviv, Israel.

    2nd August

    Avigdor 22 is contemporary event space, designed by Pitsou Kedem in collaboration with Dan Troim Architecture. Unlike the unfortunate images conjured up in my mind at the thought of event venues, at Avigdor 22 there are no hints of unnecessary frills, generic furniture, over-designed carpet, ceilings plagued with ugly bulkheads and predictable lame-ass lighting. No sir! This space is all about crisp lines, high ceilings, abundance of concrete and steel, with elegantly utilitarian furniture. A perfect place for a histper Bar Mitzvah…
