Good wood - feels like you’re in some kind of warren with this house in Makinohara, Japan, by Japanese studio mA-style architects. The aptly named ‘Ant House’ looks like a totally different house to what you’d expect inside the minimalist industrial shell.

One of my most favourite charming treehouses I`ve ever seen 


Buckhead treehouse is a charming, almost fairy-tale cottage located in Atlanta, US state of Georgia. Nestled in the woods, this unique retreat is a real craft masterpiece. The neighborhood is a quiet, residential place where a man can relax in nature.

The Milan apartment of Gabriele Salvatori

Gabriele Salvatori, Ceo and owner of Salvatori, a design company producing stone elements, lives in a gorgeous apartment on the fourth floor of a nineteenth-century building. His home is next to the company showroom: both, just separated by a stairway, overlook the same courtyard in the famous Solferino street, within the Brera design district. The interiors were revamped by architect Elisa Ossino, who has perfectly interpreted Salvatori’s style, both personal and corporate. During last Milan Design Week also the private apartment opened its doors.
