e just said goodbye to 2022 and are embracing this New Year with all our good resolutions, hoping it will be serene and joyful for all of us. And what's better to start it as a new Design Trends selection? This time there won't be a color palette - we’ve focused on shapes and materials. From page 15 you will find our proposal of trends for this Winter, and for more inspiration, you can find their use in residential projects. For example, touches of color in the Brazilian apartment designed by TRIA Arquitetura (page 54) and in the house in Sydney renovated by YSG Studio (page 74) will incentivize you to use more bright shades. Instead, if you want to keep the basic colors but still be trendy, focus on quality materials as did designer Nitzan Horowitz in the penthouse in Israel (page 64). While on page 92 a game of shapes, transparencies and lights awaits you in the project signed by Primo Atelier.
But as per tradition, in the January issue we highlight a trend that will accompany you throughout the year - it's the Color of the Year. A pulsating red, fearless, full of vitality and enthusiasm
From surface materials like tiles to furniture to home accessories, discover on page 44 how this color can elevate your interior. A fleeting addition will be enough to transform any banal space into a sanctuary of wonder.
Happy 2023 from all of us at G&G _ Magazine

From the collaboration Glenn Pushelberg between George Yabu, the new James collection by Stellar Works: an understated exploration of modern masculinity - at once bold and defined, but also light and elegant. The range includes a chaise, desk, stool and bar trolley, each one meticulously proportioned and ergonomically shaped. All four pieces have been designed to turn negative space into an aesthetic feature, making use of floating planes and wireframes to lend them an air of simplicity. www.stellarworks.com
Space Copenhagen has just unveiled the interiors for the Mammertsberg hotel and restaurant in Freidorf, Switzerland. It’s housed within a classic Swiss Villa built in 1911 with direct views of Lake Constance and stretching further out to the magnificent Vorarlberg and the Appenzell Alps. Space Copenhagen has sought to compliment the original chalet architecture of the building with an interiors scheme that juxtaposes the past and future. Address: Bahnhofstrasse 28, 9306 .

Located at the far end of Valler Tal, Hotel Silena has recently marked a new chapter in its history that bears the signature of noa*. During a long trip through Asia the hotel's owners developed a passion for the customs and rituals and they chose to integrate them as central elements of the hotel design and concept. It was therefore obvious to integrate classic elements and ambiances associated with the Asian world: the entire concept of the interior draws on this imagery, both in terms of material and colour composition.

FORO Studio creates a hair salon with minimalist appeal in Milan by taking inspiration from the urban brutalism of Bovisa's neighbourhood. It's a space restyling for the brand Iconic Milano where the goal was to optimize the reception areas and using a contemporary and urban appeal. The space is conceived as a stage upon which the main action takes place: the customer's 'transformation'. The furnishing elements are essential and welldefined: clean lines and monolithic volumes furnish the space to give, from the outside, a sensation of sophisticated organization.

Arquitectos presents its latest work: 7167 Burger, a small hamburger restaurant in Buenos Aires. Due to the limited size of the space, the colors had to achieve an immediate immersion effect. The design strategy is based on the single intervention (folds) of the single material (sheet metal), enriching the sobriety through changes of rhythm, application of textured patinas and lighting design, all of which refers to the hot iron of the baking plates. www.estudiohma.com

VIVA MAGENTA powerful
Replacing last year’s periwinkle, the vibrant pinkish-red - Viva Magenta - is officially the Color of the Year 2023 according to the experts of the Pantone Color Institute. Describing it as "a shade rooted in nature descending from the red family and expressive of a new signal of strength", this bold color will encourage all of us to experiment, fearless and in a rebellious way.
In this age of technology, we look to draw inspiration from nature and what is real. PANTONE 18-1750 Viva Magenta descends from the red family, and is inspired by the red of cochineal, one of the most precious dyes belonging to the natural dye family as well as one of the strongest and brightest the world has known.
Rooted in the primordial, PANTONE 18-1750 Viva Magenta reconnects us to original matter. Invoking the forces of nature, PANTONE 18-1750 Viva Magenta galvanizes our spirit, helping us to build our inner strength.

“As we balance our digital and physical lives, we continue to grow our appreciation for the natural world. The Color of the Year 2023 acknowledges our gravitational pull towards natural colors as movements swell around climate change, sustainability, and land protection.
In this year’s Color of the Year selection process, Pantone observed a heightened appreciation and awareness of nature represented by countless lifestyle trends. We’re incorporating more living things into our homes, such as plants, florals, living walls, and restorative outdoor spaces. We’re finding newfound enjoyment in travel, sports, and outdoor recreation after pausing these activities during the pandemic. We’re more careful to protect our bodies as a result of the public health crises we look to apply and ingest trusted, lifegiving ingredients. All of these lifestyle trends speak to the heartiness of natural forces. Viva Magenta’s organic origins hail from the cochineal beetle. This insect produces carmine dye, one of the most precious, strongest, and brightest of the natural dye family. The red tone of Viva Magenta connects us to original matter, imbibing us with a primordial signal of strength.
The Color of the Year 2023 merges the richness, warmth, and strength of natural matters with the rich, open horizons of the digital world. The result is a shade of red that expands our horizons of authenticity. The metaverse creates new opportunities for us to express ourselves, and the raw fortitude of Viva Magenta inspires us to do so with confidence and bravery.”

PROJECTED A 960M² APARTMENT IN SÃO PAULO FOR A FOREIGN COUPLE WHO HAVE BEEN LIVING IN BRAZIL FOR A LONG TIME, AVAILING CARLOS FORTES STUDIO FOR THE LIGHTING DESIGN.
Photography by Fran Parente
54 | G&G _ Magazine
Born travelers and great lovers of works of art, the couple lived in a house and, as they traveled a lot, they chose to move to an apartment for ease of maintenance and security. However, they were looking for a property with a view and high ceilings so that they would not feel so much when leaving the house.
The main concept in the choice of finishes and architectural solutions proposed by Tria Arquitetura was to bring comfort but still leave a big void so that the works could dress the house. The architects team then understood that in the living room there were 3 large main volumes that should
56 | G&G _ Magazine
have a highlight and that they would be the ones that would bring a texture and more coziness: the internal elevator block, the fireplace and the wall that divides the room from the guest area. These volumes are covered with a panel of very thin slats veneered in natural wood and glued one by one, with smoothed and slightly rounded edges.
As soon as you exit the lift block, you are presented with a small lounge area composed of a sofa with rounded shapes in
pastel green and the legendary Delfino armchair by Arflex in a lively moss green colour. Next door is the dining area with a more defined character marked by shades of brown present in almost every detail of the space: from the wood (the table and the legs of the dining chairs) to the colourful carpet to the painting hanging above the sideboard by 55 Design (also in wood). Besides, this space leads to the kitchen which, unlike the whole design, is simple and colorless.
58 | G&G _ Magazine
To the right of the lounge area, we find the living area where two fire red Tacchini armchairs stand out more but do not break the color balance. Also, to break with the slatted and wood, a stainless-steel volume with sharp edges stands out from these volumes and creates a counterpoint with the rest, bringing an air of contemporaneity to the solution. The other walls are white and received a subtle texture to give them some movement and help even more in the general comfort. In additional, the couple, with a great repertoire of design and art, values the contemporary a lot and was the main key, together with the architect, in the choice of new furniture and in the curatorship of which works of art would be exhibited in the new home.
Next to the living room, the majestic spiral staircase gives movement to the space and is in itself an architectural artwork. Behind it, a cinema area has a more intimate touch thanks to an entire wall in wooden slats.
On the upper floor there is a large master suite with dressing room and bathroom for each of the couple and an intimate library, making the entire built area of the secondfloor intimate, leaving only the balcony and social garden area that we find on the left going up the stairs.
On the balcony, the pool was subtly lowered, and part of the floor intended for landscaping was raised in order to increase the seating and, to unify the environments, a wooden pergola was created in a grid that visually unites the two areas (part covered by slab, part covered only by the pergola with glass) but also bring more coziness and environmental comfort. The floor, in rustic granite chips, is the same as the pool, the island with cooktop and the support bench. The pool has been reduced
and access steps have been created. Its edges were also reformed so that it could enter the social area with more delicacy and elegance.
60 | G&G _ Magazine
62 | G&G _ Magazine
In the intimate area, the wooden floor in wide planks performs the function of coziness while the textured white walls continue to give way to works of art. It was only in the library that the architect chose to cover all the walls with the same wooden floor as the floor to give more seriousness and highlight the environment from the others.

Nitzan Horowitz unveils the design of a 210m² penthouse duplex apartment: a composition of clean straight lines, optimal use of height and space, and a perfect balance of materials and color in the Sharon region, Israel.

“The owners come from the world of construction and entrepreneurship. They live the industry and value quality and detail. I loved the clients from the get-go, and we quickly developed a strong rapport that resulted in very fruitful discussions. After we outlined the program, their needs, and their wishes, they gave me a free hand to create a property that ticked all their boxes. The process was based on trust and mutual inspiration and the results reflect this beautifully.”
Nitzan Horowitz is known for his ability to work wonders when it comes to creating dynamic living spaces with a limited palette of colors and materials. This new
duplex apartment planned and designed for a couple in their 40s’ and their two teenage daughters is no different. According to Horowitz, the property is characterized by impressive architectural features, but the original layout didn't meet the family’s needs. The designer decided to change the floor plan completely to emphasize the dimensions of the double headroom on the first level. The uniqueness of the duplex lies in the fact that one can truly absorb both levels in one glance, and, according to the designer, his wish was to create this powerful experience. Thus, the sloping ceiling, at six and a half meters high, as well as the other high elements, were all an integral part of the concept enabling a holistic view of the entire space.
The entrance level includes an open family space with a lounge, a spacious kitchen, and a separate 60m² master suite that
includes a master bedroom, a walk-in wardrobe, a lounging area, a bathroom, and an office. The design is modern, minimalist, and breathtaking and it is evident that Horowitz was meticulous in his choice of materials throughout the property used in various compositions. These create a design continuum with a focus on gray porcelain, a white color palette that runs through the carpentry pieces and frames, and light oak veneer that adds warmth.
The designer used the entrance and lounge walls to create vertical pieces that emphasize the double headroom. The original entrance door was replaced with a 2.8m high door that is embedded into the wall. The wall was tiled with 1.2x2.8m gray porcelain slabs that emphasize its height and run up to the ceiling of the gallery level. The lounge library is undoubtedly one of the most interesting features in that space, emphasizing the height of the dynamic sloping ceiling: it creates a sense of proportion between an individual and the space itself and beautifully brings together the variety of materials.
All the materials in the lounge run on the same color palette. The idea was not to create a colorful space but rather a serene and harmonious one. A modular sofa system was placed in its center, which can turn into an exceptionally cozy family lounging area in addition to the spacious family area located on the second level. An original wool vintage rug was placed under the sofa, and the curtains, which add another layer of softness to the space, were custom-made on-site due to the challenging ceiling shape & height. The theme doesn't stop there. Horowitz masterfully designed a kitchen element that emphasizes its height, a floor-to-ceiling unit that creates a semi-corridor that separates the kitchen from the guest toilets and the entrance to the master bedroom. This element serves as a focal point for the second level that seems to be floating above it.
Horowitz used three of the unit’s sides - the first as a storage cupboard for crockery and utensils, a second used as a utility and storage cupboard that serves the master bedroom, and the lounge-facing third side was fitted with a wine refrigerator.
The kitchen was divided into areas: along the length of the space, Horowitz designed a white storage unit for all that a modern kitchen needs, with the door to the master bedroom planned further along. A 3.5x1.2m kitchen island abundant in storage was positioned in the center and is used by the family for casual dining. When entertaining guests, the family usually does so on the well-kept balcony. The island is wrapped in a porcelain surface and includes three integral fridges, a professional oven, a warming drawer, and additional functions.
68 | G&G _ Magazine
“The island can comfortably accommodate five diners and allows for dynamic interaction whilst cooking.
Since this is a very large space, with long worktops, the sink and hob were fitted on the low counter space
The artwork displayed around the property and created by local artists was curated to perfectly match each and every space and room in the duplex, all in organic shades of terracotta and Corten steel that blend with the blacks, the whites and the wooden floors.
70 | G&G _ Magazine
From the kitchen, the wooden staircase that leads to the bedroom level was fitted with a glass banister and embedded into the floor creating openness and transparency between the levels. The level includes three bedrooms: one of them serves as a suite, and another as a guest room. The pièce de résistance on this floor is a family area that overlooks the first level
and enjoys the lounge library that extends all the way up. The family corner includes a very comfortable lounging area in a shade of green that livens the space and creates a conceptual balcony on the level. Aluminum coffee tables were placed by the sofa, and the tall library that is erected from the first level is present in this space too, creating movement and interest.
The master bedroom is designed in a more dramatic, intimate and sensual style. Horowitz combined orange and rust elements that can be seen in the artwork, the rug and the sofa. The cupboard, with a mirrored facade, was positioned across from the bed and creates reflection and depth. The walk-in wardrobe was broken down into components, in the same manner as molecular cooking. it embraces the walls and is transparent in parts, thus doubling the space visually. An enclosed area was created where a mirror and tv screen were positioned, and further along, there is a corridor that leads to the office. The light distressed oak parquet in the master bedroom runs through to the ensuite bathroom, which was even more dramatically designed. The designer used a monochrome color palette in shades such as a black veneer cabinet, powerful granite porcelain countertops, and a dark Caesarstone sink.
”The duplex’s story is told from every corner, and each corner is a reminder of a different chapter.”

This 200m² house was designed in the 1960’s by Payne & Hunt Architects and retained its original condition: exposed brick and ample mission brown painted timber. The original floorplan was a bit outdated and needed a modification to fit the client's needs: the kitchen was moved from
ground floor where a third with study and ensuite remains a celebrated house blossoms into playground bursting reflection of the owners’ ‘joyful living.’ Warm shades pinks - and black are shades holding everything harmony, including flat staircase leading to the first replaced by enclosing .

The abstract artwork was inspired by aerial photographs of the property’s coastal location. It simultaneously animates the area and provides a refreshing alternative to installing a large wall-mounted TV screen, whilst complementing the new paving with its angular form. It also does not go unnoticed the curved seating formed by a white brick plinth fitted with plum-hued seating cushions.
78 | G&G _ Magazine
Rejecting a conventional layout, a custom brick plinth, besides serving as the base of sitting, delineates the new kitchen from the living area and serves as an open liquor display. Here, bold tonal highlights include the mustard yellow-tinted open pantry joinery, blue integrated fridge cabinets and the terracotta backdrop to the kitchen. Iconic modular mid-century furniture complements the original build of the sixties. The outcome is a generously playful and welcoming ‘shelter for living’ within an Australian landscape which firmly rejects basing neutral design schemes on bland notions of resale value. This is an ‘all in’ commitment to self expression as the home wholeheartedly embraces a fearless love of colour.
Another request of the clients was an integrated indoor/outdoor retreat space. So, the removal of the existing rear façade and realigning it with the storey above expands the lounge area’s footprint. In addition, bold crazy paving now connects the internal and external living areas. Close
to this area, also upstairs we have a lounge area created by the terrace overlooking the garden. Also, bathroom walls are divided by colorful timber dowels to separate bed from bath, further extending the spatial parameters of the rooms whilst enabling ample natural light to flow freely.

INSPIRED BY THE HIDDEN SPACES OF HER GRANDMOTHER’S APARTMENT IN VANCOUVER, NEW YORK-BASED ARCHITECT ANDREA LEUNG HAS RENOVATED A 1.600-SF HISTORIC LOFT FOR HERSELF IN A TRENDY AREA OF TRIBECA, NYC.
Photography by Sarah Elliott & Scott Frances
Since she moved to New York in 2013, Leung had envisioned transforming a city apartment into a secluded refuge inspired by the essence of her grandmother’s space, but also
updated to her own tastes. On a quiet corner in Tribeca, she found the ideal site: a sun-drenched loft with soaring antique verdigris tin ceilings held up by three castiron Corinthian columns. Located in a historic building dating to 1864, the apartment is accessed via a flight of lopsided stairs and a passage lined with oversized industrial rolling doors.
Leung began the project with several incisive changes. First and most drastically, she removed a cramped mezzanine that had been suspended over one side of the apartment, as well as the kitchen shoehorned below. She then reorganized the home’s private rooms along the east wall: a bedroom, dressing room, kitchen, and two baths are all hidden behind a long, continuous wall that stretches across the width of the space and shifts almost imperceptibly from a mirrored face across most of the surface, to a glass face in select areas.
The first bathroom is located behind a sliding partition off the entryway, before entering the living area. It is enveloped in veined marble with accents of bright metallics.
“Secret spaces fascinate me. My grandmother’s penthouse pied-à-terre was full of them. Push on the correct mirror, and it opened into a hidden tatami room. Lean on the right bookcase, and a dimly lit hallway led you to her own personal oasis of calm.”
84 | G&G _ Magazine
“One look at the raw space, and I knew exactly the sort of refuge I wanted to create. One that unfolds and reveals itself slowly, that wows you initially with its grandeur and then capitalizes on your curiosity.”
The concealed doors of the bedroom, primary bath, and kitchen open onto the loft’s large, bright living and dining area,
which is lined with seven tall windows on two sides. The interplay of this 'wall of mirrors' and the procession of windows, many of which are reflected therein, was essential to Leung’s design. In the main living area, Leung designed several custom pieces whose burnished, glowing surfaces bend light across the space. For example, a custom brass coffee table by Leung and the Arch bench by Pietro Franceschini lend organic curves that complement the architecture’s rectilinearity. While in the dining area, these include a brass and walnut credenza, dining table, and console set, whose irregularly shaped tops, legs, and doors play with concepts of balance and support.
86 | G&G _ Magazine
From the dining room, a mirrored set of doors opens into a kitchen where matte figurative marble and patinated brass millwork play off of the loft’s new wideplank oak floors.
Besides, to the left, a mirrored triple-bifold door opens to reveal the primary bathroom, where a monobloc oval tub is encased in walls of softly-veined stone.
88 | G&G _ Magazine
90 | G&G _ Magazine
Directly from the main bathroom, you can access the bedroom, characterised by light tones. Besides, looking into the bedroom, the reflection of the windows outside and the view of the windows inside collapse on each other, creating a momentary - and whimsically mind-bending - inversion of interior and exterior. So, reflective surfaces and hidden spaces feature across the entire home, adding an ethereal dimensionality throughout. A walnut-lined dressing room nestled behind the bedroom creates a meditative alcove with warm lighting and infinity mirrors.
“As an architect, I thrive on the satisfaction that comes from arriving at elegantly simple design solutions but more importantly, it’s the promise of emotions created by beautiful spaces that drives my architecture. I am always interested in how ostensibly static configurations of materials can evoke poetic tensions that speak to our thoughts and memories, that touch upon aspects of our subconscious and prompt reactions we may not necessarily be able to fully articulate.”

At the entrance, you can immediately glimpse the main volumes that make up this 85m² apartment: they are positioned on opposite sides and are respectively one in Canaletto walnut, soft in shape, and one in pink wood, soft in essence. Continuing we find ourselves in the living area which enjoys a wonderful sea view and is flooded with natural light thanks to the French windows and the use of transparent white curtains along the entire wall.
To the left is the kitchen but of which only a charming island can be seen while all the appliances, furniture and shelves have

been hidden in the wardrobe system. Delimited by a step, the living room follows the minimalist design. Here, undoubtedly, the protagonist is the iconic Camaleonda sofa by B&B Italia which, thanks to its versatility, adapts perfectly to the environment. The curves of the sofa are taken up in Flos’ Arco floor lamp with the
precious base in white Carrara marble. As e have none except a coffee table; the designers opted to include a ledge along the entire wall, made from the same material as the floor to camouflage it, which serves as a cupboard. Also in the same wall is a hidden door that leads to a small closet.
On the right, a very stylish dining area is made up of the Luxor glass dining table by Fiam Italia and Tom Dixon's black chairs with a witty silhouette that echoes the design of the sofa. A chandelier with white spheres adds a touch of playfulness. In the background is a large illuminated wardrobe, designed and created ad hoc for the project in a tailor-made way according to the customer's needs (as well as all the fixed furnishings and the kitchen island). Inside, there has been recessed a hidden door that leads to the guest bathroom. As in the whole house, the promiscuity of materials and shapes offers a sparkling variety of sensations that the versatility of the lighting manages to mitigate, giving moments of calm, focusing the spotlight on the single main elements, making them the protagonists of this theatrical show

The bedroom with the adjacent bathroom is immediately on the left once you enter the apartment; its door is hidden and incorporated into the pink wood wardrobe system, which then delimits the perimeter of the entire sleeping area. This part of the house is also characterized by a set of elements that vibrate in the light, materials that are warm to the touch and precious natural stones that contain unexpected technological elements.
