Designed by architect Dalibor Hlavacek, the two-storey attic loft makes good use of limited floor space. The living room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom are on the lower floor.

Bjarke Ingels Group cool spaces in donosti: COOL SPACES TOUR: Italian Rest in Notting Hill My love is sincere of this restaurant. Apart from the delicious food, I like rather than that the way they have added natural and artesanal touches in the decoration, as the food they cook. Just as in the kitchen and with truncs in mirrors. The use of the colour is another thing I like in this local. Enjoy the pictures! Este restaurante me gustó realmente. Enter your email address:

9 hours (9h) Designer Capsule Hotel Review - Kyoto, Japan I’ve been lucky enough to stay at some very nice hotels over the past couple of years but in Japan I was on a tight budget and determined to try something a little different. Originally created for businessmen who worked too late to catch the last train home, capsule hotels (カプセルホテル) have developed as an economical alternative to normal hotels in a country where space comes at a premium. Consisting of a large number of extremely small coffin-like “rooms” big enough for a single person to sleep in, Japan’s first capsule hotel made its appearance in Osaka in 1979. They have a bit of a grim reputation for their chicken-coop approach to habitation but in 2009 Tokyo-based Cubic Corp decided to take a fresh approach to this uniquely Japanese mode of accommodation. Upon arrival the first thing you do is place your shoes in a numbered locker and give the key to reception while checking-in; I doubt they get many people running off without paying the bill!

Someone Invented Magic And It Is Freaking Us Out For more stories about ridiculous things, follow us on Facebook. - “I am so sick of my T-shirt getting wet whenever I pour a lot of liquid on it!” “I wish my iPhone 4 or 5 would not get so damaged every time I carefully place it at the bottom of a jug filled with water!” “My new white shoes have been stained by the chocolate sauce and mustard I squeezed on them earlier! What gives?!” “This cardboard box I chose to hold all of the water is just not doing a great job of it! These are all things you’re used to saying, but you will be saying them no longer! It is “a family of super hydrophobic coating that completely repels water and heavy oils,” and you can buy it online here for $20 a can. Couple questions left unanswered: A) What does it taste like? B) What does it feel like? C) How much cancer will it give me, and how quickly? D) What happens if you get it on your hands and then you want to wash it off your hands?

Conservatorium Hotel by Piero Lissoni In the heart of Amsterdam nests this hotel that features 129 rooms and suites. Before the building was purchased by The Set Hotels, it was known as the historic Rijkspostspaarbank building and was occupied by the Sweelinck music conservatorium. Milan-based architect, Piero Lissoni, redesigned the building to satisfy a more modern palate and it opened as the Conservatorium Hotel in 2012. Conservatorium Hotel by Piero Lissoni: “Conservatorium Hotel Amsterdam occupies the famous site of Amsterdam’s former Sweelinck music conservatorium. Knuttel was praised for his ability to fuse simplicity and functionality, and the award-winning Milan-based furniture and interiors designer Piero Lissoni has embraced this tradition through the re-incarnation of this spectacular building 100 years later. Against the backdrop of the building’s incredibly rich history, the hotel has been consistently imbued with Lissoni’s signature style. Photos courtesy of Conservatorium Hotel
