If MC Escher did Instagram…
Spanish illustrator Cinta Vidal’s drawings of topsy-turvy, up-is-down houses channel the spirit of Dutch artist MC Escher. And luckily for us, Barcelona-based Vidal has provided an insight into her creative process via Instagram. DesignTAXI has more.
Inside the home of the Beckhams’ handpicked designer
You have to be pretty good for the Beckhams to hire you as their interior decorator, and Rose Uniacke certainly has the design chops judging by her London home. Nowness takes us on a tour of her 14,000 sq ft Georgian Revival in Pimlico.
There’s a house suspended over a German town…
And it’s all in the name of art. Argentinian artist Leandro Erlich’s large-scale Pulled by the Roots installation is part of ‘The City is the Star’ exhibition in Karlsruhe, south west Germany. The house – inspired by the work of legendary local architect Friedrich Weinbrenner – will lord over the town’s skies until 27 September. See more on CityMetric.
Creatives warm to renovated Danish boiler building
Like so many other industrial buildings – see London’s Rum Factory – a 1940s former boiler building in Vejle, Denmark, has become a creative hub. The 13,000 sq ft redbrick warehouse, renovated by Schmidt Hammer Lassen Architects, is now the Design Driven Innovation Centre, an office and studio space for 30 companies.

One space fits all
Furnishings, ranging from tables to book shelves, unfurl from all corners of this Madrid apartment, designed by Elii Architects. The practice integrated foldout wooden fixtures into the walls of this small 260 sq ft space, allowing for almost limitless space configurations within the apartment.
