In the September Residential Interiors issue of Azure, we focus our lens on four fantastic domestic spaces with design cred to spare. In Atlanta, architect Jennifer Bonner’s one-of-a-kind family home pays homage to Southern vernacular through creative finishes and more than a few intriguing architectural flourishes, while a mountainside retreat by U.K. firm Gort Scott in Whistler, British Columbia, reflects its setting both materially and structurally. In Spain, meanwhile, architect Valentín Sanz’s ultra-efficient rental unit boasts a tiered wooden structure serving as furniture, storage space and room divider in one. And in Milan, Turin-based Marcante Testa artfully outfits an apartment with a riot of finishes, shapes and colours.
Along with these engaging interiors, we take a look at Leong Leong’s expressive new home for the Los Angeles LGBT Center, a layered series of glass and white stucco volumes that provides a welcoming public gathering space while simultaneously maintaining a sense of privacy and security. Plus, Italy’s Living Divani celebrates two major anniversaries, highlights from NeoCon and NYCxDesign and a tiny hotel in Thailand that beckons adventure-seekers with a shimmering facade.
Transformative installations and standout sound absorbers.
