A rigorous analysis has identified the main issues of the existing malls in the city, which are commonly built using glazing
White Desert is a project founded by record-breaking polar explorer, Patrick Woodhead, and his wife Robyn, that launched the first and only luxury camp in Antarctica.

Beginning with the ’60s, the building had hosted the cinema of the city, during which the first changes to the building and its interior courtyard were made.
The family house is located in a stabilized area of detached houses and garden plots. Set back from the street, it has the same position as a former garden house. This provides certain intimacy and isolation. The central location of the house splits the plot into the front and rear garden. While the front garden is conceived as lush, informal vegetation, the rear garden hidden behind the house has a more functional character.
The starting point in creating the interior was the investor’s collection of paintings, antique furniture and extensive library of books. The apartment was divided and furnished in order to expose these items, but in such a way that they do not compete and do not dominate the space. All the new furniture pieces are minimalist and free of any visible details. The books have been
