The Monocle Guide to Cosy Homes

The Monocle Guide to Cosy Homes answers those questions with a global photographic survey of a wide variety of homes. Whether the focus is on a remote residence in the Swedish archipelago or a lush abode in Rio de Janeiro, or on the difference between residing in Tokyo and Toronto, this book is the perfect balance between the inspirational and the practical. 

3deluxe

3deluxe is a German interdisciplinary design collective of communications, interiors and product designers and architects. This substantial book presents the group’s most complex projects over the last five years showing their skilful mastery of interplaying graphics, interior and architecture to create powerful spatial situations and graphics that resonate through all of their projects.

The Shopkeepers

Good stores still exist. In fact, their number is growing. Well-designed specialty shops that are inspired by the small manufacturers and mom-and-pop operations of the past are now sprouting up. These outlets are defying e-commerce and anonymous online shopping with outstanding products, original interior design, innovative concepts, and, first and foremost, friendly and competent customer service.

Let's Go Out Again

Eating is more than a basic physical process. It is a social, aesthetic, and cultural need. We go out to meet friends or business partners, to try a new culinary trend, to relax in the familiarity of our favorite restaurant, or to revel in the multisensory experience of the latest tasting temple. It is always about more than just eating and drinking. We seek dramaturgy, emotion, and adventure. Atmosphere makes a difference and we increasingly want it to be all-consuming.

Kitchen Kulture

At home, the kitchen is where the best parties end, the wildest affairs begin, food trends are set, small culinary businesses are founded, and the perfect strangers of a supper-club are catered to. Whether large or small, modern or rustic, the kitchen has become the center of all the action. What was once a pragmatically designed place for food preparation has now become a stage on which the act of cooking and eating is celebrated as a social event. At the same time, the kitchen is being opened up to become a living space and pivotal meeting point in the home.

Hide and Seek

More and more people are yearning to live in harmony with nature. Yet they don’t want to give up their homes in the city or make radical changes to their lives. Instead, they are creating their very own retreats in nature. The furniture, décor, and feel of these highly individual structures offer their owners an exceptional, yet convenient way of escaping from their urban routines. The right concept is more important than a lot of space.

Our House in the City

A new generation of homeowners and architects is finding original solutions and unusual locations for contemporary single-family homes in urban areas.

Cities are bustling metropolises, melting pots, where the action is, and where history is written. Many of us prefer to live in cities—at least most of the time. As cities expand and become more dense, architects must face the growing challenge of finding new and unusual ways for their citizens to live, both with each other and individually.
