The Jewelry Box is a project designed by Tzvia Kazayoff Design. Nestled in the heart of Ganei Tikva, a quiet and unassuming neighborhood, “The Jewelry Box” stands as a testament to the transformative power of determination and creativity. In 2023, this apartment, named after its owner’s passion for jewelry, became a beautiful haven in an otherwise humble location. Photography by Elad Gonen.
The AS Arquitetas SP office, composed of Luciana Gomes, Julia Brepohl, and Manuela Moreira, is responsible for the renovation of the 170m² apartment in Itaim Bibi, São Paulo (Brazil), with the challenge of creating a minimalist environment that reflects the personality of the new residents: a young couple who love to host friends and enjoy moments together with their pets, a pair of Golden Retrievers. Located on the second floor, the treetops seem to invade the apartment’s terrace, so the entire layout was designed to direct the view towards the greenery, creating a connection between indoor and outdoor spaces.

Pacific Promenade is a project designed by Schédio Spaces. Towering over the beach district of Downtown Vancouver, this three-bedroom penthouse felt dark and awkward as it had not been updated in over 20 years, leaving a complete rebuild as the only logical way forward. The clients are hoping to welcome a child in the years to come, however they love to entertain so also wanted a modern and sophisticated space. Therefore, the task became marrying functional indestructibility with clean, elevated design, resulting in a timeless, architecturally forward home with sensible storage and innovated finishes.

Villanueva is a project designed by Cuaik CDS. Located in the heart of the vibrant city of Madrid, the latest apartment on the exclusive Villanueva street is a testament to the perfect fusion of classic elegance and timelessness. This spacious 213 square meters apartment with three ample bedrooms has been meticulously designed to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere that adapts to any season, providing true ‘cozy’ comfort and a feeling of home.

Cambridge Palace is a project designed by Schédio Spaces. This two-bedroom condo on a beautiful cherry blossom lined street in Mount Pleasant was in desperate need of a complete redesign. The kitchen was entirely enclosed and nearly inoperable with less than a single foot of functional counter space. Photography by Janis Nicolay Photography.
The project designed by WILLIAM TOZER Associates treats as a found object the industrial building within which it is sited. Existing building components are either presented as raw materials—brick, concrete, and steel—to announce their found object status, or curated with a white paint finish to relate to the modern insertions.

Art Collector’s Residence is a project designed by Palette Architecture. Located in the heart of Kips Bay, New York City, the Art Collector’s Residence is a remarkable architectural project that seamlessly combines the distinctive features of two eccentric apartments into one cohesive whole. The merger of these spaces presented physical and social challenges, as the residence spans two different buildings, each with its own unique history and dimensions. Designed to cater to the needs of a modern family, this extraordinary home carefully accommodates a couple of art connoisseurs while gracefully adapting to the ever-changing dynamics of family life and the demands of remote work. The result is a thoughtfully crafted dwelling that marries contemporary living, work, and play within an intricately designed architectural framework, making the Art Collector’s Residence a truly exceptional and one-of-a-kind home.

inward nature is a project designed by Metre Architects. As a semi-detached dwelling on a plot of more than 6,000 square-feet, the original house had been designed to maximise its interior floor area, resulting in light wells of minimal dimensions. The greatest design challenges lie therefore in animating the expansive interiors, and to evoke a sense of poetics especially for the dimmer spaces on the first storey.

Camellias is a weekend home to a 30-year-old bachelorette to entertain guests. Designed and executed by Essentia Environments, the overall design of this apartment is guided by the views of the surroundings in every direction—the vast Golf greens, the Lake at close proximity, and the Aravallis beyond. This approach gets enhanced by the tall ceilings, large glass windows, open layout, and essentially minimal palette of materials and colours.
With neutral tones and a mixture of materials and straight lines, the project of the 130m² apartment in Vila Ipojuca in São Paulo, signed by the architect and interior designer, Daniele Capo, responsible for running the office NOSSA Casa Arquitetura and in partnership with the architect Cristiane Trolesi, was thought in a simple way, but modern and minimalist. The idea was to create a harmonious and cozy environment, in which all the elements talked to each other. Photography by Evelyn Müller.
