Loft Interior Design | The Rounded Loft | Prague | Czech Republic |A1 Architects

The issue of „boundless“ space became the main motif of our work. The private spaces such as bedrooms are ofcourse separated, but the rest of common activities rooms are connected within one fluent space. It starts at the entrance hall with dressing wardrobes and slightly continues towards living space and kitchen with large dining table, the space is also opened to upper gallery which is meant for guests.

To reach specific fluency of space we decided to round off some of the interior corners, which finally give the space its unique smooth character. Due to these softened corners one moves and feel simply free and the bounderies of walls somehow disappears.

Even the staircase with integrated fireplace and library climbs up in rounded corner. The railing is made out of thin stainless steel net, so it is safe but even smooth and transparent..........more

Club Interior Design | Garden Of Eden | Shanghai | China | Kokai Studio

The initial program developed by the owners was particularly challenging as the objective was to create a multifunctional venue suitable to different occasions and to compete on the dynamic and innovative night scene of Shanghai. Being provoked by the original briefing of a venue where mood, light and senses shift within one night we settled on the image of the Garden of Eden. Eden: the garden where Adam and Eve live peaceful in an overwhelming luxury of nature and colors. Eden: the paradise of temptation where the snake seduced Eve to follow her deepest desires and bite the apple.........more

Loft Interior Design | Collector's Loft | Manhattan | UNStudio

While the walls form a calm and controlled backdrop for the works of art, the ceiling is more articulated in its expression of this transition.

Office Interior Design | OPN Architects, Inc. | Cedar Rapids | Iowa | USA | OPN Architects

All remnants of the 1980’s remodeling including drywall perimeter, acoustic panel ceiling, and private offices
were removed to expose the original masonry walls and steel/heavy timber structures. The insertion of new
elements was done in a clean, contemporary manor to clearly define the separation of new and old. Private
offices for the partnership are on an interior wall with a full glass wall open to the studio. A skylight was added to the back office wall to wash natural light on the exposed masonry. A new furniture system was chosen for its materiality and detailing that was consistent with the new architecture. The result was a dramatic transformation
of the space into an open, transparent work environment conducive to the firm’s philosophy......more
