Combining casual chic décor with wild animals may seem like a strange combination to many; however, this home spotted on LokalBolig, manages to pull it off with aplomb. Animal prints, faux fur, and even the work of a taxidermist, merges a casual setting with nature in a unique way. Its easy living straddled together in a space that is meticulously arranged. For example, every corner is adorned with some type of knickknack, photo, book, mirror, or some special piece without causing the space to appear overbearing. It’s finesse at its best. Of course, white walls and ceilings are the best backdrop for any home décor furnishings. With such an empty canvas to start with, any texture, pattern, and color, flawlessly blends in. Most of this home’s décor fits around a neutral theme. Hues are based in white and black with hints of beige and other neutrals. Moreover, angled walls and ceiling give way to windows that display a stunning view. This view alone opens up the space filling ro

B2 Boutique Hotel by Althammer Hochuli Architekten. “During its 130-year long and eventful history the site has been modified and converted multiple times. The hotel’s concept and design follow the spatial and structural parameters of the complex stock of buildings. Accordingly, the conversion’s concept imbeds three distinct scenarios: rebuild (the boiling house) – build up (on top of the turbine hall) – incorporate (into the cooling sector). Rebuild The boiling house is situated on top of the Sihlberg, a hill in the middle of the city, dominating the site of the former brewery. The brewery’s facade reveals an amalgamation of various phases in the building’s history. When entering the spacious hotel foyer today, three vertically scaled cathedral-style windows – once part of the boiling house – draw the visitor into the depths of space, and into the library. It is an inviting setting with more than 33.000 books which are piled up in the wall lined with smoked oak and
Victorian School Turned Into Eclectic Vintage Home by avocado sweets. Open-plan living is hard to come by in properties with mezzanines because of the fire risks involved. Using a state-of-the-art misting system, we fulfilled our clients’ dream of a large, stylish open-plan kitchen in this converted Victorian school house apartment.

The problem: The overall design of the conversion had left two grand inter-connected living rooms with a small, windowless box kitchen and two bedrooms on an open mezzanine, exposed to the noise and light downstairs. With their first baby on the way, our clients wanted to create a better family space where they could enjoy cooking and entertaining and extra child-friendly living space for their new addition. Our musician client also wanted excellent soundproofing to avoid disturbin
