This stately Italian apartment dates back to the 1500s, and for Archiplan, the studio tasked with its interior renovation, "maintain the building’s atmosphere while bringing together two different worlds” was of key importance. Preserving the ornate walls and ceiling frescoes the streamlined and elegant abode remains in harmony with history. 'The Home Upgrade' looks beyond big-budget projects and explores projects where the seemingly impossible has been achieved.

Moving away from the Dead Sea salt treatments commonly associated with wellness in Tel Aviv, Tokyo-born therapist Yoko Kitahara's eponymous spa centers around the philosophy of Japanese hospitality. Every treatment starts with removing your shoes, a foot bath, and a cup of organic tea; a process which fuels a disconnection from the busy world and establishes "a strong internal experience."

The successful hideout not only pulls on our heartstrings and conjures an instinctual feeling of longing, but also helps us reclaim our sense of wonder toward the world around us. Embracing the archetypal house silhouette, this simply pitched roof structure coverts an old barn into a delightful and compact summer home in the Swedish countryside. Our innate quest for both prospect and refuge coincides with the language of the nature retreat. Our title 'Hide and Seek' nurtures that urge to escape.

After discovering a naturally warm water source that was not suitable for consumption or heating homes, the inhabitants of Iceland’s Húsavík embraced Nordic practicality and built a 'nature bath.' Located on a grassy hilltop in a remote, northeastern fishing village on the coast of the Greenlandic Sea, this geothermal pool is enjoyed by locals and a handful of tourists alike.

In Milan, Vincenzo De Cotiis' apartment is an homage to raw architectural beauty. Erasing any decorative embellishments added by previous residents, the 18th-century space is a reflection of the architect’s overarching fascination with ageing objects and raw antiquity. By purposely leaving the crumbling walls untreated, he explains that his design aesthetic aspires "to emphasize the pre-existing and then enrich it.” Profiled in 'The Touch,' this project highlights the importance of materiality in successful haptic design principles.

Since it's humble creation in 1932, Miramonti in South Tyrol, Italy, has grown into a boutique hotel which encourages “communing with nature.” The resort's rustic-refined alpine atmosphere embraces the rhythm of the surrounding nature. Carved out of centuries-old volcanic rocks, the panoramic salt water infinity pool is just one of several positions where guests can absorb the fresh air and stunning views. Focusing on contemporary spa culture, our title 'Be Well' is a journey around the realm's most extraordinary spaces.

Coastal houses too often assert themselves as monuments to mankind, declaring their presence against the surrounding nature. But for Norm Architects, creating a house that would embed within—and change alongside—the complex landscape, became the key design factor. Inside, sand-coloured walls and earth-hued furnishings echo the color palette of the exterior world, with materials purposefully weathered to reflect nature's "wild character." More images and information about the project are featured in 'The Touch.' Available to order via the link, and now with free EU shipping. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Visit: gstl.tn/touchig⁠⠀ Image: #jonasbjerrepoulsen⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ #sensualarchitecture #thetouch #interior #design #danishdesign #interiorspace #residence #minimal #minimalism #nature #home #gestaltenbooks @kinfolk @normarchitects
