Summer 2021 : AN Interior
This summer, AN Interior foregrounds home remodels in a big way. Though they may vary from site to site, the projects share more than a few strategies among them. Arches are a recurring motif, likely because they offer formal whimsy on the cheap, while millwork optimizes space and imparts warmth, albeit for far greater sums. Demolition is largely kept to a minimum, with designers such as PRODUCTORA, Office of Things, and more embracing the quirks and oddities of vintage developer architecture. In each case, the results are surprising, savvy, and suggestive—you too could do this.
Those planning an overhaul of their own should consult the Kitchen & Bath special section, which is packed with high-performance, high-style appliances and fixtures.
New builds and fit-outs factor elsewhere in the issue, but the focus remains squarely on the lived-in and the domestic. Showrooms and galleries like Salon84, frenchCALIFORNIA, and others are on the same tip. Ditching white-cube galleries, institutions and upstarts alike have begun staging their highbrow collections within luxury residential settings.
Other feature stories highlight a D.C. law office by SHoP Architects, a not-so-straightforward house by Ply+, and a contemplative gym and spa by Büro Koray Duman.
