Checking out Mies van der Rohe’s Barcelona Pavilion a couple of weeks ago.

During @l_d_f_official I had the opportunity to explore @stellamccartney’s new global flagship on 23 Old Bond Street, London. Like all Stella’s collections, the 700 square meter store was designed around the core principles of innovation and sustainability with plenty of personal and playful touches as well: the “Stellavator” lined in Stella’s signature pink Fur-Free-Fur recycled from previous collections, fluted pebble dash concrete walls inspired by memories of Stella’s childhood, original sound collages specially created by Paul McCartney, a monochrome recycled plastic ball pit on the kids floor, filtered ‘clean air’ throughout the store, walls lined in handmade papier-mâché, recycled from office paper, biodegradable mannequins, vintage furniture by Italian designers Mario Bellini by Angelo Mangiarotti and moss and rocks imported from the McCartney family farm all connected by a sculptural spiral steel staircase.

Cherry Graden House by Buchner Bründler Architects in Allschwil, Switzerland photographed by Georg Aerni. | “In May 2018, a residential building was completed that allows great privacy with maximum openness. Behind an enclosure, the house is designed as a transparent building that surrounds a garden. It is played by the course of sunlight. A wide flat roof with a rib construction spans connecting house and exterior space.”
