Unusual Bookcase by h2o Architectes

Unusual bookcase designs become both storage solutions and partitions in this space designed by French h20 Architectes. They came with a unique idea to increase usability of this small 60 sq.m apartment. Before renovation, the unit was extremely tight, with a 5 sq.meter area allotted for the entrance. The existing walls bore various widths and thickness. As a solution, the bookcase designs that were built are diverse in dimensions to accommodate the various possessions of the client and are cleverly positioned to separate living spaces. Predominantly white, the apartment is made alive with dollops of orange, green, gray, and black. Continue Reading

All In One Kitchen Island by Comprex

An interesting kitchen idea, this contemporary “all in one” kitchen island by Italian company Comprex incorporates minimalist style and maximalist function – the best of both worlds. The Linea kitchen island has a sleek and streamlined look, with plenty of practical features, all integrated into one modern design. Under-counter storage keeps all your kitchen essentials out of the way but close at hand. Behind clean-faced doors, the storage is disguised. At first glance the island enjoys an uncluttered, untouched look, but there is more to this cool kitchen than meets the eye! The hidden sink (so contemporary, done in white) is awesome, topped by a removable prep area and complete with a telescopic faucet that retracts when not in use. The downdraft vent hood doesn’t take countertop space, appearing only when needed, and the electric cooktop is perfectly flat with the counter. Continue Reading
