Industrial meets Refined in a Loft in a Former Garage, France

Posted: 25 Jul 2014 08:04 AM PDT

Situated in the industrial portion of Bordeaux, France, a former garage has been turned into a gorgeous modern loft by Italian designer/architect Teresa Sapey. Sapey divided the building into two principal zones, public and private. The public zone, designed for receiving guests and socializing with friends, consists of a kitchen, a wine cellar and a guest bedroom.

...And what would a converted garage be without... a garage? Private, clean and fully modernized with optical-illusionary art. One would expect no less than a work of parking art from the architect who designed parking for the multiple-starchitect Hotel Puerta América Project (Madrid).

20 Sharp, Masculine Kitchens Perfect For Men

Posted: 24 Jul 2014 07:39 AM PDT

While there certainly was a time when the home kitchen was seen as the domain of women, that’s far from the case today. From self-sufficient bachelors to egalitarian couples to wannabe celebrity chefs, more men than ever are cooking for themselves and for their loved ones. Of course, not many of these men want their kitchens covered in pictures of kittens in chef’s hats or even the bright, spastic yellows or quaint ginghams of “country chic” and designers are catching on. The kitchens featured here are sleek, modern, and ready for any style-conscious man to get to work.
