From the architect. Studio Saxe has completed a boutique hotel and yoga studio set into the tropical landscape of Nosara, Costa Rica. The project is another in a long line of sustainable buildings from the practice that blend contemporary design with local craftsmanship, embracing the natural environment that surrounds and frames the architecture.

Nosara has become a destination for visitors from around the world for health, wellness and surfing and so the owners of Hotel Nalu-Nosara, Nomel and Mariya Libid, wanted a design that reflects the attitude of their guests. The yoga studio, which has also become incredibly popular as a multipurpose gym space, is enveloped by lush vegetation on all sides and therefore becomes a jungle retreat for exercise and relaxation.

Guests at the hotel are provided with individual pavilion ‘homes’ rather than rooms, located just a few minutes walk from the ocean. By breaking up the mass of the traditionally monolithic hotel, the architects were able to scatter living spaces amongst the trees and create a sense of privacy while surrounded by the natural world. Each pavilion has been carefully positioned following meticulous research into wind and sun patterns, while ensuring they are all provided with an individual view out to the landscape. Overlapping timber roofs project out over each pavilion providing shade from the intense equatorial sun. These roofs are made of recycled Teak planks, creating uneven patterns that further emphasise this tension between local craftsmanship and modern design. Rooms are connected via corridors that filter dappled sunlight down from the pergola roofs above and frame more views out the lush surroundings.

Architect Benjamin Garcia Saxe said: “Our project Nalu represents the power of simple, low-key, modern tropical architecture. It has quickly become a town favourite, which shows that there is a real desire to occupy spaces that bring people closer to nature, while addressing the needs of contemporary life.”

The stairs that connect the various floors of the house have been named the Tin Tab Staircase, as the treads have been made into the slimmest treads possible to maximize transparency. From the top, the oak treads add warmth to the space, while from below, engineered blue stainless steel adds a cool touch. Simple bead-blasted handrails with a matte finish add to the contemporary design.

Locals in Paris’s 19th arrondissement will tell you that if you’re after a juicy slab of Normandy beef – and here, we’re thinking great cuts of rump and chateaubriand – it’s a good idea to book a table at Au Boeuf Couronné, a tried and tested chophouse in the French capital since the end of the 19th-century. Quite appropriately, the restaurant is just across the road from the Bernard Tschumi-designed Parc de La Villette, which was once the site of a huge abattoir and national wholesale meat market.

And now, the restaurant’s owners have taken over the adjoining hostel and turned it into an unexpectedly slick 42-room hotel. Whilst the temptation may have been to turn the whole enterprise into a themed property of the Hard Rock Café variety, local design studio Fabrice Ausset has exerted both wit and stylish restraint.

Obvious bovine influences have been limited to timber panels branded (literally) with silhouettes of cattle and abstract foliage. Less obvious references come by way of huge timber blocks that serve as desk and counter space in the rooms; the customised stools and chairs which are finished in burgundy hued leather, and the bathroom in white subway tiles; whilst belted leather hold-alls provide storage and decorative touches.

Downstairs in the titular restaurant, chef de cuisine, Antonio Goncalves, oversees a protein-rich menu of which the beef tartare is a reliable favourite, as is the apple soufflé.

The new “Authentic Interior” design studio designer’s owner Aida Šniraitė creation – monochromatic 50m2 apartment in an emerging neighbourhood in Vilnius, Lithuania is created for a single woman with strong tastes for industrial and urban US design, but with a quite limited budget. Very unusual colour combinations for conservative Lithuanians, as black doors and plinths, original concrete ceilings or black furniture. Inspired by industrial and urban US living, concrete, bricks, metal have been used without moderation. Apartment is divided into a living area of 30m2, a big shower zone of 6m2, a bedroom of 14m2. Proposed mood boards have been accepted and did not change throughout the design process.

When entering the apartment, a raw wood imitation, black sleek lines, white walls and concrete details invite to see further. The space is used for a maximum storage space as the client is woman. Big mirror closet maximises visually the space and reflects daylight. Some smart solutions as iron board hidden in the closet have been made.

The biggest part of the budget was invested into the bespoke furniture (two huge closets, bathroom storage, kitchen and living room furniture) and construction and good quality of materials. However, some furniture as sofa or lighting or bed has been chosen cheap because it is easier to change small furniture than repaint the walls every two years.

There was one modification in plans – the bedroom door has been moved by one meter to incorporate big closet on the left.

Bricks on the wall are fake ones – it is made by talented Lithuanian artisans.

There is no real wood in the apartment – most furniture is made of high quality Italian HPL.

The main area possesses a bar area, about which client dreamed about, so found its place quite easily. Classic industrial bar stools matches perfectly with light wood, concrete countertop and black facades.

Shaggy rug and light grey floor composition was another client wish which found the place in this home.

Bedroom has original concrete ceiling and decorated concrete accent wall which supplements subtly black matte Fenix wardrobe doors.

What girly room without a boudoir table with Hollywood lighting? Every client’s wish comes true.

Bathroom has all concrete walls and floor, accentuated by black dyed aluminium and glass shower wall. Mirror – full moon enlights perfectly concrete decor and makes it stand out as ever.

A big balcony to get inspired by local industrial architecture while sipping a drink in a comfy acapulco chair.

CEDIT – ceramiche d’italia, a global leading ceramics brand, are renowned for their design excellence with coverings created by well-known artists, such as ettore sottsass, alessandro mendini, pier giacomo castiglioni, and many more. once again confirming their status in design, their ‘castello’ range from the ‘storie’ collection by giorgia zanellato and daniele bortotto, has been awarded the ‘best of the best’ in the ‘product design 2017’ category at the red dot award. this latest announcement follows the launch of an additional two new collections; ‘cromatica’ by studio formafantasma, and ‘frammenti’ by martino gamper, which were presented during the milan design week 2017.


the ‘tesori’ collection by matteo nunziati

CEDIT – ceramiche d’italia delivers unique, high-end artistic ceramic coverings that are symbolic of experimentation and design. since the 1950s, the brand has focused on skilled craftsmanship, paired with the latest technological advancements. over these years, the sizes of their tiles have changed, from small 7.5 x 15 cm to wide 120 x 240 cm slabs of today. this variety of sizes ensure designers have total freedom over the spaces they are creating. additionally, the element of personalization has also been a key feature throughout their history, enabling different designs to be combined in order to form new decorative and chromatic solutions.


‘matrice’ collection by barbara brondi and marco rainò (brh+)

relaunched in 2016 as part of the florim group, CEDIT has continued its expressive decoration, ensuring design remains at its core. this has spurred new collaborations with six italian contemporaries from the design and art scene, including; barbara brondi and marco rainò (BRH+); marco casamonti (archea associati); matteo nanziati, giorgia zanellato and daniele bortotto (studio zanellato/bortotto); giorgio griffa; and franco guerzoni. these creatives brought new life into the history of the brand, exploring new frontiers and developing wide-format ceramic slabs for floor and wall coverings.


the ‘archeologie’ range by franco guerzoni

protagonist of the 2017 milan design week, the italian ceramic brand has created two new collections; ‘cromatica’ in collaboration with andrea trimarchi and simone farresin of studio formafantasma; and ‘frammenti’ with martino gamper. ‘cromatica’ explores the full potential of color in contemporary ceramics. designed for use in its full or smaller size, every slab can be combined to reveal a space of differing shades. in contrast, ‘frammenti’ investigates the architectural effects of ceramics in a variety of stylistic contexts. furthermore, it follows the italian born designer’s philosophy of reuse by salvaging and reassembling existing materials, to create a fresh, functional and aesthetic design.
