Ryokan Modern

Nestled within the lush tropical gardens in the Garden City, the 3,500 sqft residence boasts the elements of a Japanese ryokan. For the homeowners who are passionate admirers of the Japanese culture, the brief was precise at best – to create a modern ryokan (traditional Japanese inn) with a Scandinavian touch. The result is a cohesive space that is complimented by a fluid motion of poetic encounters, each defined by the bespoke feature walls that were skilfully handcrafted by sister company IN-EXPAT. Every feature in this apartment is as meticulous in its detailing as its functions. More

OPUS Business Park Helsinki – A Unique Acoustic Space

Commissioned to design the reception areas for the newly renovated OPUS Business Park in Helsinki, interior designers Niina Sihto and Emma Keränen converted an empty, grey tiled space into a warm, welcoming reception hall. They eliminated sound reflections from tiled floors and huge glass windows by installing a number of BAUX designs. The texture of the wood-wool tiles contrasted the hard surfaces and helped to soft the space. The colours have also had a huge impact. The client wanted a warm feeling on entering the building, so Nina and Emma chose soft reds that complemented the client’s brand identify. The inspiration for the designs came from our BAUX design tool and sample images on the BAUX website. The construction process was quic... More

The geometric BAUX shapes meant many possibilities for graphic expression. Everything points up and to the right – forwards, towards innovation. Two twenty-meter tall BAUX designs give the feeling of being outside, in the harbour on a summer’s day. Wood fibre textures an... More
