Maison du Parc is a multi-award-winning residential interior overlooking La Fontaine Park in Montréal, Canada. Created by la SHED architecture, the interior is inspired by the design of early-century mansions, with room layout, sightlines and double-height windows following classic proportions. Traditional luxury materials like marble and parquet flooring are made contemporary with a high-contrast monochrome palette. Matt cabinetry, sheet steel and translucent glass walls add a variety of textural finish to the pared-back space, allowing natural light from the park to pervade throughout.

TIZIO

Few lamps have such a recognisable silhouette as the Tizio. Designed in 1972 by Richard Sapper for Artemide, it found design-icon status during the matt-black-obsessed 80s. It was the first usage of a halogen bulb outside of the automobile industry, meaning the minimal electric current needed to light it could be conducted along its counterweighted arms, allowing it to be wire-free.

Amantea Architects redesigned this back garden in Toronto, Canada to include a dining terrace, patio, sports lawn, swimming pool and pavilion, all within a 560-square-metre space. The pool pavilion is clad in black cedar veneer to contrast with the surrounding foliage while visually receding into the background and contains a washroom, changing room and shower. The pool is lined with Algonquin limestone that extends horizontally on one side to form a deck wide enough for lounge chairs.

SUSSEX

Sussex is a sleek collection of sideboards and storage elements by Terence Woodgate for Punt. Available in a range of configurations and finishes, drawers and cupboards are hidden behind horizontal wooden slats that also serve as handles. The design was inspired by the weatherboard-clad barns of Sussex, England and can be free-standing or wall-mounted.

'No two materials are alike. No two sites on earth are alike. No two buildings have the same purpose. The purpose, the site, the material determine the shape. Nothing can be reasonable or beautiful unless it’s made by one central idea, and the idea sets every detail. A building is alive, like a man.'
