Posted on Updated on

MARC Architects, based in Amsterdam in The Netherlands, completed designing and constructing a magnificent villa in Amsterdam called “Villa S2”.

The villa is a single family home in the historic city centre, and with high ceilings throughout, there is an exquisite connection between the interior with the exterior landscape – set by the water.

With such seamless materials used, wooden cladding etc, it is hard to find anything wrong with this family home.

I think the interior of this property is casual and flowing throughout the build.

Student Living; At Its Best

Posted on Updated on

Ab Rogers, a London based designer, believes that his recent student housing project could set a blueprint for compact modern living within the city.

With the student accommodation, named “Scape”, built in London’s East End it can house up to 600 students. All of the bedrooms are no larger than 12.5 square metres in area. They were inspired by train carriages in which space saving measures in the storage and seating areas (cupboards doubled up as a desk and window seats).

Within the student accommodation, there are two on-site restaurants; a cafe called “The Kitchen”, and a pan-asian restaurant called “Box Noodle”. Both of these feature in the photographs below.
