For the eye-catching debut of New York’s first Neiman Marcus department store, local firm AvroKO transformed the retail icon’s signature all-day dining and bar concept, the Zodiac Room, into a dramatic yet welcome respite from the bustling mega-development Hudson Yards where it resides.

Taking inspiration from the New Formalism architecture style and the brand’s Fortnight events—celebrations of international culture and fashion that started in 1957 at the flagship Dallas store—midcentury influences appear in abundant arches, a cool palette of slate blue and gray, and perforated brass detailing. To further evoke the time period, a chandelier (custom by AvroKO’s furniture and lighting design arm Goodshop) features pleated lampshades arranged in a lantern-inspired form. “To create a restaurant within a space that already exudes hospitality was not a stretch, but rather an extension of the already guest-centered Neiman Marcus brand,” says Kristina O’Neal, one of the firm’s four partners, including Greg Bradshaw, Adam Farmerie, and William Harris. “That said, we made sure there was a cohesive feel in conjunction with the retail space, but also gave it its own personality as an independent restaurant destination.”

The AMARA Hotel Cyprus has debuted along Akrotiri Bay in the town of Limassol, Cyprus. The Los Angeles office of Wilson Associates oversaw the design of the Mediterranean retreat’s F&B venues, which embrace 180-degree panoramic views of the surroundings serving as a backdrop.

Contrasting light and dark elements abound throughout the lobby, where sophisticated and casual spaces are juxtaposed with angular and organic forms. Chiseled, fumed oak wall panels wrap the space, while an expansive wine display contextualizes the heightened atmosphere with intimacy. The hotel’s signature restaurant and bar is also housed on the ground floor and feature leather furnishings in a range of cream, off white, and gray colorways. Gold trimming along stools reinforce the coastal color palette, while hand-blown glass and hardwoods round out a sense of opulence.

A contemporary rooftop bar crowns the property, with soft cream tones offsetting espresso brown wood notes. The relaxed environment is detailed with elaborate wall greenery and wooden stools punctuated with deep blue cushioning. Black marble countertops are set against beige stone walls to further emphasize the contrast of dark and light.

with a series of luxury serviced apartments, CCD has brought the opulence of various luxury brands to beijing‘s one sanlitun building. featuring various themes, such as armani, aston martin, chanel, hermès and bottega veneta, the design studio has shared images from the ‘FENDI apartment’, which takes inspiration from the italian fashion house with an array of sumptuous materials and grand spaces.

when developing the design, CCD sought to integrate italian history and culture into the interior, fusing classic elements within a contemporary space. upon entering the apartment, a palatial 6.2 meter high foyer greets residents, which features a sculptural staircase inspired by rome’s famous spanish steps. the foyer also boasts impressive views of the city below and a luxurious material palette of brass, velvet and white marble. the design also takes cues from rome’s many water fountains and reinterprets them into stylish lighting. linear light fixtures drop down within the stairwell, perfectly complementing the brass handrails.

the large-scale dining and living area is designed to be very open, with french windows on three sides providing magnificent views over beijing’s sanlitun quarter. a void punctures through the living area to create a double height space, bringing more light and connectivity into the apartment. then at night, residents can even gaze at the stars thanks to a bespoke telescope.

living & dining area

 

 

the dining area contains a western-style kitchen, a chinese kitchen, a breakfast table that doubles as a bar counter and a large table to meet the demands of various social events. the striking pendent lamp above the table appears like a hand-made disco ball, which gathers light and spread it downwards. this area is a perfect place for inviting families and friends to enjoy delicious food while appreciating the fabulous cityscape, which redefines ‘luxury’ for those who look for private yet unique living experiences in the city center.

the bedrooms also inherit the exquisite and classic qualities of FENDI with the use of upscale fabrics, superb craftsmanship and an intimate spatial atmosphere. the master bedroom can be found on the upper floor, beside the living room void. with large areas of french windows, it enjoys 270-degree views of the outdoor landscape, and enables occupants to feel the varying scenes of beijing’s busy quarter throughout the day.

the furniture continues FENDI’s style. beige wood and leather coverings create a warm feeling while an exaggerated crystal chandelier and smart home system, perfectly combine functionality with luxury. all these details come together in the master bedroom to generate an elegant and cozy ambience. the master bathroom is finished with marbles, and makes use of natural light that pours into the shower and bathtub area. the solid sense of architecture echoes with the city’s skyline, resulting in an illusionary ‘castle in the sky’.

Chicago based architecture firm dSPACE Studio, has designed an outdoor space for their client who wanted a place to relax and entertain.

Their client’s vision was to transform the yard to promote an open-air lifestyle that reminded them of California wine country.

The outdoor area, with its different elevations, has been transformed to include an outdoor dining area with a 7-ft linear fireplace with black steel surround, and an artful array of cascading planter boxes filled with succulents, and overhead string lights.

Adjacent to the dining area is the wall-to-wall outdoor kitchen that features stainless steel cabinets, and custom wood cabinets, designed by dSPACE, with Ipe wood panels and a concealed stainless steel support frame.

A small group of steps and tall multi-stem Dura Heat River Birch trees help to provide separation between the dining area and lower level where the pool and lounge can be found.

Louvered sun shades and a pergola were designed to filter sunlight, add interest, and maintain privacy. Lighting has been integrated under stairs, handrails, and above the outdoor kitchen for safety and aesthetics.

At the bottom of the stairs is a custom Diamond Spa and a lounge area. The spa measures in at 5′ wide by 14′ long by 4′ deep, is heated year-round, and has an automatic cover to protect it when it’s not being used.

A stone-look porcelain tile has been used throughout the project, while native, drought-resistant plantings add a natural touch, and globe light fixtures add an artistic flair to the wall by the pool.

Black and wood tone come together in delicious contrast in this large and luxurious apartment, located in Athens. Designed and visualised by buro511, this interior design is a completely cohesive scheme that sees the same colours, textures and materials run throughout every space in this high-end home. From black living room to dark and dramatic bedrooms, black bathrooms, and storage packed hallways, the design connection is on point. You will also see a floating furniture theme running through, in the shape of a floating effect coffee table, a floating kitchen, and bespoke floating platform bed designs. Even the bathroom mirrors seem to hover weightlessly in a warm halo.
