David Chipperfield Architects was founded in London by David Chipperfield in 1985. The practice has since won numerous international competitions and built over 100 projects.
Xixi, a national wetland park located on the outskirts of Hangzhou, is a built landscape and an area of nature, which has been shaped by man for over a thousand years. The omnipresent relationship between landscape, architecture, and water is key to the atmosphere in Xixi.
This atmosphere has been integrated into a new development of apartment buildings.

Karim Rashid creates the “sensual minimalism” concept inspired by the human body, redefining the Cancun skyline with a spectacular 430-room superstructure filled with sensual curves and bright colours, stimulating guests throughout the resort.

That’s why the building is covered in bright colours and round forms, mimicking human shapes and designed to trigger feelings of attraction and interconnectivity.
Guests can also enjoy a provocative poolside experience “Sexy Pool” where fun and enjoyment are ensured by the DJs, that raise the temperature and transmit energy through their music. Relax and soak up the sun on the “Surf” designer sun loungers by Karim Rashid.

This stunning 18th-Century House located on a picturesque street in London was decorated by India Mahdavi and is a perfect example of how to do great outdoor design.
The sun shines down through the home’s light well, which has a garden on one level and a terrace on another.
The terrace isn’t just for decoration, it acutally provides a calming and elegant atmosphere that is perfect for outdoor dining.
Peter Marino’s Hamptons Garden
The entire garden is much like a rainbow land where purple flowers can be spotted to the north of the house; red to the east; pink to the south; and multihued in the west-facing rose garden.
According to Peter Marino yellow flowers when mixed with any other colour than green they look cheap, so he keeps them in a separate spot.
In the worlds of Peter Marino – “Gardening is like decorating. It’s all about placement”.

The Marmol Radziner wood shop line specializes in hand-crafted, custom cabinets for kitchens, baths, and built-ins for the whole house. They use materials such as American walnut, rift-cut white oak, maple, teak, ash, and bamboo.

We particularly love this outdoor concept where wood is the statement element as it is aligned with uncompromising and elegant lines.
