Last week I was in NY for a work trip and as soon as I got a few hours free on the weekend, I visited this amazing concept store in Soho.
While the entrance could be a bit intimidating (the lift from the road is a bit like: ‘Where the hell am I going?’), once you get at the 3rd floor you’re catapulted into the most beautiful light-filled open-air apartment in the heart of SoHo.

Last weekend it was Openhouse here in London, the most amazing architectural festival that gives free public access to lots of buildings in the capital and around the country. While most of the people generally hit for the iconic buildings in the city center, this year I opted to stay local and I discovered a beautiful gem just around the corner from my house:
This new build is designed by 6aArchitects and is nestled tightly into an irregular corner plot in North London and is split into three apartments.
The client – an artist and restaurateur – briefed the architects with a series of her own photographs depicting the stacking of everyday objects. The result is a minimal space, with a very strong character. The materials are rough ready, a perfect combination of wood, exposed concrete, brass and scratched white stucco.

I’ve been home quite often in the last month (due to a special event I’m planning in October…). The last time that I was there, I had the opportunity to visit this amazing design Hotel: La casa sull’albero in Lecco.
The hotel is composed by two modern villas made of wood and glass designed by a local Architect: Giorgio Melesi.
With just 12 rooms and suites it looks like a private house, surrounded by a peaceful garden, and tall trees and with a breathtaking view over Lake Como.

Looks like it’s been ages since my last post, but lots of things happened in life lately and I’ve been doing few little trips that kept me very busy.
