From a range of selected materials, this 5-room villa in Hovås, one of the finest districts in Gothernburg, Sweden is a fine example of stylish and precious design. The villa was built of very expensive materials and everything, starting with the façade and ending up with the cozy interior were executed to perfection. A large spectrum of neutral colours embellish the interior: form different shades of browns, to greys and white, the interior expresses luminosity. Despite the “cold” neutral colours, the living room and the kitchen (which form one single big room) have a warm and cozy appearance, thanks to the stunning authentic fireplace and the cozy fuzzy carpets, laid on the floors.
The 5-room villa is like a shelter dedicated to your senses, enhancing the feeling of relaxation. The terrace captures wonderful views over the woods, recharging you with energy when needed. There’s nothing sophisticated expect the simplicity itself. You can find more about this spectacular Hovås villa on the Skeppsholmen‘s official website. The villa is currently for sale!
A good building should make you want to look at it. Even if not always liked by passers-by, it should always make them feel something. Manchester Metropolitan’s University’s business school is a building that effortlessly fits this criteria. Indeed for many, the building by Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios is their first taste of the architecture of Manchester as they travel along the arterial road, Mancunian Way. With its distinct ski-slope roof, and glittering mirrored appearance, it provides a flash of silver, and a dazzling break from the dull greys of the motorway, greeting motorists in a slightly space-age way as they enter the city
These days, a building doesnt just have to look good, it should ideally be good for the environment too. A great example of sustainability spliced with style from the past few years is the M&S store at Cheshire Oaks Retail Park in Ellesmere Port, designed by Aukett Fitzroy Robinson.
