Micro Work-Live Apartments in San Diego

Located in the historic Barrio Logan neighborhood of San Diego, University professor Hector Perez has created 9 live-work units in less than 4,000 square feet. Filled with a quirky personality and each with a dedicated outdoor space, the building names La Esquina, meaning “the corner” in Spanish—a reference to its position in the neighbourhood, maximises the potential of every available square foot. .

Tropical Mood: In Bali, a stunning exotic architecture, with Mediterranean accents, design and color.

Architects Valentina Audrito and Abhishake Kumbhat’s house in Bali is located in the heart of the outstanding tropical forest, with a terrific sea-view. The building is inspired by the local architectural style while the interior looks more western and contemporary with concrete floors, recycled wood, eclectic furniture, featuring local craftsmanship, vintage pieces and artistic installations.

Vincenzo de Cotiis’s new home.

This 18th-century palazzo apartment was love at first sight for Italian architect and artist Vincenzo de Cotiis and his wife, as It is located in their favorite area of Milan, that is the old neighbourhood of Magenta and, as they wanted, still retained the original features that they have preserved, after the renovation. According to his aesthetics, now the interior looks really chic and sophisticated, with an eclectic decor, a clever use of mirrors and brass, Brazilian marble, great art pieces, design icons and remarkable vintage furniture and, of course, stunning pieces designed by himself.


Tiaan Meyer Meyer + Vorster Architects were commissioned by a young family to design a relaxing, modern home in Constantia Valley outside Cape Town. This is very much an indoor/outdoor house, with shutters, windows & sliding doors designed to open completely .. even the bathroom. With beautiful views of gardens & grapevines all around, the house has been designed to fit as naturally as possible with it’s surroundings. Love all the beautiful oak used & the nod to mid-century style.

Architect Massimiliano Locatelli’s home in Milan

Massimiliano Locatelli, architect at CLS, lives in this eighteenth-century building, squeezed between a church and another old building. His four-floor house is 12 meters long and just 2,95 meters wide -and protected by Fine Arts- but he was able to reorganize its proportions and make it stunning, with the use of custom bookcases and vintage and modern furniture along the short walls.
