So, like any architecture firm, we get gobs of design magazines that we either subscribe to or not. Usually they come in the principals names, but no one ever picks them up so they either end up in recycling or on my desk because I am too cheap to subscribe to a glossy magazine I can get for free at the office. Recently, I “came into possession of” Interior Design magazine…it’s a glossy and a goody. Apart from it being half ads and the other half interiors concepts that no one would ever spec in their project because it would tank the project in one foul swoop in just finishes and FF&E, Interior Design is the typical trendy design rag. I did, however, enjoy these pics right from the cover. I was completely confused and duped at first and I admit I opened the magazine solely because I could not figure out what was happening on the cover. I am not sure I would want to work in this environment, but the jury is still out on that……this is Salon Himmelblau in Welsberg-Taisten, a village in the Italian Tirol, and the designer, Architekturbüro Stefan Hitthaler, designed the basement upside down. Also, I can’t imagine having to spell that name over the phone….
