    It seems I have been quite quiet this past week, I assure you I am not sitting on the beach or on some European high street sipping a delicious latte and having a taste of the upcoming festive season, I can only wish, no unfortunately I have been snowed under a mountains worth of tender reviews for our large (47,000 sq ft) sports centre […]

    As Autodesk products play such a major role in my everyday activities as an interior architect I thought it would be remiss of me not to feature their new office project on this blog. The new Autodesk center in San Francisco is a triple whammy in that it is a gallery, customer briefing center and an office space for the Autodesk employees. The design […]

    This week we have spent a lot of time working on our sports center project, particularly in the offices section of the project, as such we have spent a lot of time with office furniture suppliers and one thing that keeps coming back to me is how naff cubicles are. I detest using cubicles in office projects but sometimes they are a necessary evil, […]

    By now most of you who read this blog will know of my love for projects that retain a certain sense of eclectic rustic charm, especially when those projects involve the design of something that you wouldn’t necessarily associate with this type of design. Today’s feature project is an awesome example of this. The Serrajòrdia Bakery is based in the town of Sant Cugat […]

    It’s now at that time of the year again, that time when I don’t have to stand under my AC unit to cool down and I can finally venture outside and do some exercise without fear of melting, the Dubai winter has finally arrived.

    Having spent most of the past weekend soaking up the sights and sounds of the Yas Marina Circuit and the Abu Dhabi Formula 1 as well as Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, I simply had to do a Formula 1 inspired blog post. The trick is I wasn’t too sure as to which store to feature until I put the question to the office and […]
