It's here! Our favorite time of year when we can look back on a year's worth of stunning kitchen and bath designs featuring recycled glass surfaces. From the beach to the city, talented designers are using crushed glass counters and mosaic tiles to create interiors with historic charm, coastal vibes and modern moods. (An amazing amount of style variety in this year's designs.)
Nowhere is color more important to design than in corporate branding. It energizes workers, inspires customers and reinforces brand identity. From coffee shops to financial offices, the color of surfaces underpins the look of a brand, and in some cases communicates the company’s commitment to sustainability.
When Quicken Loans opened a new office in Washington, D.C., designers went beyond red decor accents to represent the company. The nation’s largest home lender is probably best known as an industry innovator that approaches mortgages from the perspective of a modern consumer looking not just for a loan, but a new kind of loan experience.
It was a tough job, sifting through beautiful residential and commercial projects featuring Vetrazzo: curved islands, sparkling bathroom vanities, corporate kitchens and even a veteranarian hospital. But we perservered to bring you a Vetrazzo project that is as sustainable as it is beatiful. (You're going to want to move right in just for the roof deck alone.)
Thank you to all our entrants and congratulations to our winner, Arkin Tilt Architects!
Drinking a cold one on a hot day. What could be nicer? Drop the empty into the recycling bin, kick back, and think how you just made the world a little better by sending that bottle on its way to a new life. Who knew it was so easy?
Inspired by Coastal Design, Created From Nature (and last night's party).
