“Tucked away in a leafy suburb in Cape Town stands a statement-making home – not only for the modern, glass-fronted architecture but more so for it’s vibrant interiors. For local design studio ARRCC, who executed the project, it was the homeowner’s affinity for colour – and a multitude of materials – that informed the creative journey. ‘By working with the homeowner’s wide and varied art collection we were able to create spaces that allow for a dynamic dialogue between the artworks and furnishings,’ says ARRCC director Mark Rielly.

Extended house in Prague is a project designed by boq architekti. The lack of daylight. That was the basic thing that we had to deal with. The client´s brief was to propose the interior design as light as possible to lighten all rooms. But at first sight, it was sure that it would not be enough. Photography by Tomas Dittrich.

The Double Duplex designed by Batay-Csorba Architects was created in response to the cities growing need for alternative housing models due to the rising cost of urban real estate and the need for urban densification within Toronto’s established residential neighbourhoods. A proliferation of high and mid-rise condo’s have densified the urban core and serve as the predominant model for entry level home ownership within the city. However, very few new low rise infill models of densification or affordable living within Toronto’s sought after historic residential neighbourhoods have been developed.

This project began when a couple decided to sell their primary residence in the city to purchase a cottage on the northern point of Archambault Lake in Saint-Donat. It was located on a picturesque, south-facing site with a hundred metres of private beach. They planned to retire in this magnificent place. They decided to call on the interior design firm FX Studio by Clairoux to transform the rustic cottage into a peaceful retreat for the whole family. Their dream renovation project was about to come true. Photography by Julien Perron-Gagné
