Interior High Notes: Residential wonders in Atlanta, Whistler, Milan and more in Azure's September 2019 issue!

Out Now: The Workspace Issue, June 2019
Plus: Learn why major design brands (including Hugo Boss and Cassina) are embracing veganism, see how a Manhattan plaza by Scape camouflages impressive flood controls (plus effective noise buffers) and get a look at Vancouver’s most arresting new landmark: a sculptural, bright red structure designed to be an “attractor.”

In the June issue of Azure, we take a close look at the way working life is evolving and how architects and designers are responding to the needs of both employers and employees. In London, for instance, MoreySmith has fashioned a sophisticated new HQ for a menswear label seeking a less siloed set-up, while Snøhetta employs a soft palette and a rigorous yet ultra-flexible layout for Swarovski’s new design and manufacturing centre in Austria.

In Toronto, meanwhile, MSDS Studio creates a contemporary home for a 60-year-old ad agency in a century-old building, while, over in Norway, the clan behind the family-run studio Kvistad corners the market on homey, people-focused workspaces (fuzzy wall rugs included).

And in an exclusive photoessay, top architecture and design firms open the doors to their own nerve centres. Among the highlights: BIG’s new digs in Brooklyn’s DUMBO neighbourhood, Linehouse’s super-organized studio in Shanghai and COBE’s unusually transparent office in Copenhagen.

Also in the issue: Snarkitecture unveils a permanent exhibition space in New York City’s Hudson Yards to showcase the creative process behind its ultra-Instagrammable work, the Swedish brand Baux explores biomimicry with a zero-waste acoustic panel composed of ingredients you’d find in a walk n the woods and Hans Olsen’s fifties-era Fried Egg chair is back in production.
