Blackstone House

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.

The featured staircase is the fluid that connects the 3 apartments. The top floor apartment is the most beautiful one and has been decorated by the homeowner with an exquisite taste using a mix of old and new pieces.

Regent’s Park House

I think it’s time for a new home tour today! A while ago my friend Massimo asked me to photograph one of his project: this stunning flat not far from Regent’s Park in North London.

The Bedroom is simple but bright and minimal. The two bedside table are Meduse from Casamania. The Black & White Photo on the wall is by James Morris, one of my favourite architectural photographer.

The little wood side chair, found by the owner at a flea market is probably my favourite piece in the all flat.

The Bright Living Room found space for the dark metal of the Standard Jean Prouvé Chairs by Vitra and the Cavalletto Table by Cassina.
