Bali-based studio Word of Mouth has designed the Lovelli Residence project. This 3,230 square foot two story contemporary home is located in Seminyak, a mixed tourist and residential area on the west coast of Bali just north of Kuta and Legian. Lovelli Residence by World of Mouth: “The brief to Architect Valentina Audrito and her team at Word of Mouth was very clear: create a fun, unique space in which the client, an Italian socialite/jewellery designer, could live and entertain. Set on only 300sqm of land in the trendy area of Seminyak, Bali, the site presented challenges not only in terms of its limited size but also its east orientation.

This beautiful and original modern home is designed by Werner van der Meulen architects and located in South Africa. The floor to ceiling windows allow an unobstructed interior-exterior connection.The wooden grid encountered at the windows and eaves acts as blends and sets the tone to the composition. Another focus element is water, found here and there throughout the layout, be it in the pool or the waterfalls decorating the small oases around the house. The house is a clear blend of simple volumes complemented by flawless lighting and natural elements.
The incredible Joc House in Johannesburg, South Africa is one of those ridiculously vast and luxurious spa homes that make a resort vacation obsolete. Designed by Nico Van der Meulen architects, this , believe it or not, 2 floor residence features a stunning open entrance layout that makes the inside spaces seem like outdoor spaces or terraces. The inside pool, prolonged outside, contributes to this impression, as does the stunning 2 story height living room. The choice of materials is minimalist to brutalist, with marble and strip stone on the inside and a gigantic, very arguable freestanding concrete frame the size of the whole structure, on the front terrace and attached to the residence by 2 beams. Aside from looking massive and even science-fiction-utopia/dystopia-like, this kind of concrete frame is the architects’ trademark.
Fábio Galeazzo has designed the “Urban Cabin” in São Paulo, Brazil. Description from the designer: In an old abandoned house were used retrofit construction techniques. The existing structure couldn’t handle the heavy load and was complemented by a sustainable framework of giant bamboo beams and columns treated in autoclaves, the roof received green thermal tiles. On the floor it was used certificated management timber and some exotic brown granite as well as some walls and ceiling. In order to counter the whole structure and highlight the house amid the dense vegetation the interior and exterior walls were treated as a state of art and received several irregular shapes in different colors inspired in the universe of the modernist painter Tarsila do Amaral.

Motivos florais estão longe de ser uma novidade em matéria de papéis de parede, mas a designer sueca Camilla Diedrich descobriu uma forma de inovar: em uma homenagem ao músico americano, que perdeu a visão durante a infância, sua linha "Nature Ray Charles" traz luz para a decoração de paredes. O diferencial fica por contas das fibras óticas, utilizadas por ela para tecer delicados arranjos de linhas resplandecentes, com um resultado é belíssimo. Disponíveis em diversas cores como ouro, bronze, verde, azul e framboesa, os papéis de parede vêm em rolos de 135 cm x 260 cm que podem ser aplicados repetidamente conforme a área desejada. A designer tem um talento especial para transformar superfícies planas em formas tridimensionais ricamente texturizadas.
