Tasked with renovating two bathrooms and a kitchen, Dagmar Stepanova of Formafatal chose a minimalist industrial palette to unite the three spaces: two bathrooms and a kitchen.
The residents of the apartment, located in Prague's Vinohrady district, were a young couple returning to the Czech capital after living in London for several years. Stepanova took cues from London's industrial character (with a healthy dash of minimalist design) in devising this remodel's striking aesthetic. In the first bathroom, seen here, a brass washbasin from Morocco is flanked by a Tolomeo Micro Parete lamp from Artemide.
Jean-Christophe Aumas’ multihued Paris apartment houses both the highly sought artistic director and the stunning assemblage of furniture he’s brought back from his travels. The dining room features 1970s leather-and-brass dining chairs and a table concocted from a brass-and-silver base and a custom lacquered top. The cheerful blue paint enlivening the doorway is from Emery & Cie.
A British architectural designer Jonathan Tuckey transformed this bisected 17th-century house in the Swiss Alps into a 970-square-foot home of his own. The top-floor bedroom is meant to be moody. Tuckey designed the bed, the brass wall light is by John Glew Architects, and the chair is another piece inherited from the previous owners, a couple who lived there for decades.
This Japanese-inspired midcentury dwelling was carefully renovated with the spirit of its original architecture in mind. This bathroom's brass fittings are new to the project but are similar to metal that was originally used elsewhere in the home. The fittings, seen here in the children’s bathroom, will quickly acquire a dark patina.
In Auckland, New Zealand, architect Michael O’Sullivan and his partner Melissa Schollum braved a miniscule budget, withering looks from friends, and nasty nail-gun injuries to design and build their perfectly proportioned family home. The reflectivity of their brass kitchen island makes it seem to dematerialize.
