Michael Marriott bookshelves in an England home kitchen, paired with a Nelson bubble lamp and Artek table and chairs. Swoon.
The open-plan kitchen and living room in the de Gaspé House in Montreal's Villeray neighborhood borrows natural light from a double-height space over the seating area.

The Woody was originally designed for inventory use, but after much demand this ladder-inspired shelving system was soon put into commercial production.
There is no need to stow-away spare seating that is this beautiful. Perfect for small space entertaining, these lightweight Spin Stools can be stacked up and stored in a rainbow spiral—the epitome of minimalist Scandinavian design.
A bicycle rack for the design-conscious cyclist—the Pedal Pod looks good with or without your bicycle. The multifunctional piece offers ample cubby space to stash odds and ends, and frees up floor space by storing your bike as well.

The vegetable garden produces everything from cauliflower to arugula and Italian parsley.
Shaded by an awning from TSM Systems and furnished with Sol y Luna pieces from Design Within Reach, the rear patio is a favorite spot for meals.
A door next to the bed drops down, opening the room to its surroundings. "It's a fantastic way to ventilate the space, but also makes sleeping in the loft feel like camping when it's down," Eerkes says.
Cost-effective hot-rolled steel—steel being an Olson Kunding signature—covers the treads on the staircase leading to the sleeping loft.
With a construction budget of less than $200 per square foot, architect Les Eerkes (with the mentorship of Tom Kunding) looked for ways to build the structure efficiently. He specified glulam—glued laminated timber—for the structure and spanned the skeleton with structurally insulated floor and roof panels. The structure is stationed atop a six-column foundation. "The 'six-footed' solution was balanced against a spread footing and stem wall approach," Eerkes says. "Cost analysis led us in the direction of the column footing approach because it minimized excavation and form work costs."
The renovation revealed a 30-foot-deep well beneath the bedroom, which the team half-jokingly considered turning into a fish tank. Instead, they opted for a simple bedroom with plenty of built-in storage.
Patterned porcelain floor tiles add an unexpected pop in the bathroom.
A lofted playroom overlooks the main living space.  A seamless piece of glass provides a discrete barrier.
Large windows fill the main living and dining space with natural light.  FLOS IC Pendant Lights hang in the double height space.
An IKEA desk and SKI wooden provide working accommodations in the study, overlooking the main living space.
A Petal end table by Richard Schultz is paired with a Platner armchair. These classics mingle with newer items, such as a Desmond room divider by Jonathan Adler and a sofa by Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams.
Bulldogs Sasha and Sophie rest on a Mies van der Rohe daybed in the lower den. The Capelli stool by Carol Catalano and the rocker by Adrian Pearsall are reserved for their owners.
Mostly they restored original elements, like the buffet and the staircase. Cherner chairs sit at the head of a Design Within Reach table. The armless Series 7 chairs are by Arne Jacobsen; the third pair are Juliana chairs by Aristeu Pires.
A collection of Miss Petra chairs from Myyour are next to the pool; all lighting for the house is by Skip Yeknik.

A Mah Jong sofa by Roche Bobois in the living room lends a colorful counterpoint to the custom water feature that runs alongside it.
The open, pull-out shelves allow for easy reaching and the gap at the bottom of the drawers makes room for the feet of someone in a wheelchair so they can be closer to the counter.
A lap pool runs alongside the west facade of a hybrid prefab home in Palm Springs by Sander Architects. “Our version of prefab,” explains architect Whitney Sander, “involves the use of building shells that are the ‘heavy lifting’ parts of any house: main structure, secondary  structure, and (often) building skin.”
With expansive EcoHaus Internorm windows, the space feels larger than its 1,400 square feet.
When planning regulations limited what could be built in an English forest, PAD Studio devised a prefab structure that can be moved by crane. “The whole building is based around a steel frame, which provides us with the stability to be able to top-lift it easily,” explains designer Ricky Evans.
Architect William Carpenter, glimpsed in his second-floor design studio, built Lightroom 2.0 to sit unobtrusively among its 1920s neighbors in Decatur.
Carpenter kicks back on an IKEA outdoor sectional on the sealed-pine roof deck of Lightroom 2.0. A collection of vintage Tulip armchairs by Eero Saarinen surround a “Jetsons-inspired” fireplace from the 1970s found online.
In the living quarters of Lightroom 2.0, Carpenter’s daughter Esme chats with her boyfriend, who is seated on a Milo Baughman Case Sofa.
New zoning allowed for a zero-lot-line structure, but required a public storefront, which Carpenter uses as an art gallery.
“A building can have far greater impact than the space it stands in.”—William Carpenter, architect and resident

In the bedroom wing, sunlight shines down from the Plexiglass bubbles. Steel in the cutaways reflects the light.
In keeping with the house's spirit, its master bath calls for a sense of adventure.

The main living space is constructed of immense I-profiles, allowing for a full wall of glass with four large sliding doors that open to the backyard.
