    In our June issue, we look at the way working life is evolving – and how architects and designers are responding to the needs of both employers and employees. In London, MoreySmith fashions a new HQ for a menswear brand seeking a less siloed set-up, while Snøhetta’s ultra-flexible design centre for Swarovski in Austria is factory and showplace in one. In Toronto, MSDS Studio crafts a contemporary home for a venerable ad agency in a century-old building, while the clan behind Norway’s Kvistad corners the market on homey workspaces (fuzzy wall rugs included).

    The Interiors Issue, September 2019

    What makes an interior great? Charm, innovation and unbridled originality are just a few of the qualities that characterize the spaces in Azure’s September issue, profiling some of the most intriguing and inspiring residences around.

     In the September issue, Azure focuses its lens on four fantastic domestic spaces with design cred to spare. In Atlanta, architect Jennifer Bonner’s one-of-kind family home pays homage to Southern vernacular through creative finishes and more than a few architectural flourishes, while a mountainside retreat by U.K. firm Gort Scott in British Columbia reflects its setting both materially and structurally. In Spain, meanwhile, architect Valentín Sanz’s ultra-efficient rental unit boasts a tiered wooden structure serving as furniture, storage space and room divider in one. And in Milan, Turin-based firm Marcante Testa artfully outfits an apartment with a riot of finishes, shapes and colours.

    In the May issue, AZURE travels to the far north to take stock of the remarkable range of modern buildings being erected there. In Labrador, Todd Saunders’s seaside cultural centre creates a new benchmark for the region, while Henning Larsen’s town hall-cum-footbridge in the Faroe Islands both nods to and expands local aesthetics. And then there’s Icelandic architect Pálmar Kristmundsson’s striking beachfront retreat – on the site of a former concrete factory.

    In Azure’s March/April edition, top architects and designers share their go-to fabricators for everything from glass curtain walls to specialty ceilings, while a survey of today’s next-gen materials includes more than a few surprises (recycled-plastic terrazzo, anyone?). In Nepal, German-based rug maker Jan Kath shows how it’s making carpets cool again. And in the U.K., the founders of prolific studio Industrial Facility reflect on how they balance creative and commercial success.
