When one door closes another one opens. When the AIA bookshop closed in 2017 it gave architect Adam Haddow the idea to open his own. That idea is now manifest in the form of The Architect’s Bookshop.
Some architects choose to view site constraints such as size, orientation, rigid briefs and budgets as welcome challenges. Here are Habitus’ favourites from the year that was.
Throughout the year Habitus has been fortunate to borrow the time of some of the industry’s most creative and innovative Design Hunters, lending our ears and sharing their paths and perspectives.
These 5 feats of residential architecture we’ve covered on Habitus Living have stayed with us because they convey so much more than a simple meeting of brief; but a personal connection and deeper understanding between architect and client.
Architects, designers, and their hospitality savvy clients are well aware that the interior architecture of a cafe, restaurant, wine bar or cake shop can take patrons to the next level of brand experience.
Join us as we reflect on the residential projects covered in 2018 that display a genuine connection to the coastal site upon which they sit, using architecture and design to complement nature’s finest work – rather than compete with it.
The final issue for 2018, the Trailblazers issue, will be on sale Thursday 13 December. To celebrate, Habitus teamed up with Living Edge at the Vitra Design Museum’s Miniatures Exhibition.
Pieces collected from our travels, essential items within the home, objets d’art or items we just love the look of, this collection of exposed storage will ensure what you have on display makes just as big an impact as what you are presenting to the world.
Enjoy a rare insight into the goings on, passionate discussions and heated debates that lead us to our Habitus House of the Year 2018 winners!
