Many perceive loft style literally, try to fill such spaces with rough brutal furniture and decor items. But in this Los Angeles loft, architects of Marmol Radziner decided to play with opposing styles and textures. Wall decoration, open communications, rough materials – the basis of interiors here is the classical industrial. At the same time, furniture items are more refined and elegant, made of trendy expensive materials. We must say this contrast between completely different design elements looks awesome!
This stylish black and white apartment in the center of Prague was formed by merging of two small apartments on the neighboring floors in the old building. This allowed creating a unique two-level home with elements of industrial style and preserving some original architectural features. We loved the black minimalist staircase, that is literally “hanging” over the space of the open living room. Also, the window seat is well used – now the owner is able to host large companies. Great project!
The interiors of this Brazilian apartment makes you remember the famous carnival in Rio and the colorful summer life that reigns on the popular city beaches.

Here a young bachelor lives, but there is no dark tones at all – only the riot of colors. Enjoy!

It’s amazing how the architecture of this contemporary residence in the suburbs of Stockholm has only 4 parallel concrete walls, which are connected by glass partitions to form interior spaces! Such a structure helped to maximally open the house to natural light and nature, and also virtually clear the boundaries between interiors and the environment. The house also has its own swimming pool and access to the lake. Impressive design!
This minimalist apartment in Moscow proves that a rough industrial design and bright colors can successfully live together. Just look how creative the Le Atelier studio filled the home with color.
