This stylish mini-loft is, amazingly, only 57 square metres in size, but it feels as airy and bright as one four times bigger. Architect Philippe Harden bought a partitioned, narrow corridor-like apartment because he loved the view from the large windows, which open onto a park. After two months of work (spent mostly removing doors and walls) he has what you now see here - a serene, light filled environment. Look carefully and you can see how he makes every inch of space work, yet it still feels relaxed and effortless. One of my favourite spaces from Marie Claire Maison.
Very cool project by Neil Donnelly: a visual response to 100 days of listening to Brian Eno’s song Here Come the Warm Jets. Conducted under Michael Bierut’s 100 Day Workshop at Yale. Have a look here. Via Design Observer.
