This student center is so amazing it almost makes me want to re-enroll in university. Almost. I remember my friends and I being kicked out of the student center during our university days, for making too much noise. Its not our fault I swear we thought those rooms were sound proof. But we didn’t mind, the student centers weren’t that good to begin with. But this student center is an entirely different case! Coventry University’s new 91,000 ...

I loved the combination of open spaces and a soft color palette in this home. Everything is in one ...

Here’s a simple and beautiful design in such a confined place with a lot of beauty to stumble upon. This place is located in the Czech Republic and was designed by A1 Architects and I believe they have turned a storage place into a livable and lovable place. The white walls, use of wood and hints of gray here and there really give a modern edge to a place that usually never looks good. I love how ...
