Private Residence Taipei combines Marcel's design signature with local-inspired elements. Each space is lovingly conceived as a jewelry box with attention to detail, richly decorative reliefs and bespoke furniture setting the tone. All rooms are individually designed to provide a unique experience.
Beside a master bedroom suite, the floor plan includes two guest bedrooms, a dining & show kitchen, as well as an entertainment & study room. Read More
Notables like Tommy Hilfiger and Eloise have called New York's famed Plaza Hotel home, and now, you can too – in the pad Frank Lloyd Wright lived in while designing the Guggenheim Museum. The current owners bought the condo in 2009 as a pied-à-terre and regutted and redesigned the apartment, decking the place out with a Murano-glass chandelier, customized moldings, and the artwork of Willem de Koonig and Jean Dubuffet, among others. The luxe space also offers 13-foot ceilings, a jacuzzi, and views of Central Park and Madison Avenue. Oh, and some pretty serious bragging rights, too. Read More
The latter is a quite popular bar situated in the 7th district of Budapest, the former Jewish neighbourhood of Város Erzsébet. The name, Doboz ('box'), refers to the project's most striking spatial intervention, a bright red box that the designers placed in the courtyard of the late 19th-century building. Softly illuminated in the evenings, the box sits next to an expansive bar area that can accommodate diverse entertainment. Opposite the box, in the open patio, is a 250-year-old tree where 'King Kong' ascends. This wooden sculpture, made of hundreds of slats, is the work of artist Gábor Miklos Szoke. Read More
The Lebanese restaurant Al Sultan in London’s Mayfair recently underwent a redesign by interiors company IDEA. The key feature is the decorative metal grille in a traditional Islamic pattern, reworked for a more contemporary feel. In laser-cut aluminium, powder-coated in golden tones, the grille is lit from both the front and back to give an otherwise tight space the illusion of volume. It wraps itself around the curved shape of the white lacquered bar and appears to weave around the whole restaurant. Read More
Now offering seven bedrooms and six bathrooms, the majestic building was completely gutted and its interior rebuilt anew. Today only the outer walls, the church tower and the stained-glass windows with their religious motifs recall its ecclesiastical past. The soaring height and exposed roof beams of the main living space make an imposing impression, while a floating steel staircase and furniture custom-designed for the building ensure contemporary flair. The contrast of modernist and traditional is apparent in every corner. The building is probably fairly expensive to heat, particularly in view of the main hall's enormous height, but it is unlikely that this poses much of a problem to the people who commissioned the project.Read More
