design et al – The International Design & Architecture Awards

The Best of European Design

This week’s round up

An interview with AB-architect’s managing partner and a look at Studio Gathe’s incredible recently shortlisted project…

Here at design et al, our staff will be working remotely for the time-being, maintaining regular business hours and promoting the best design projects throughout the world. All awards PR, editorial, digital news edits and magazines will be published as usual. Every part of the business will continue to work in the same way. Over the coming days and weeks will be adding to our global communication with additional new edits and PR  on a global level to help keep this industry moving.

As publishers for the design industry globally, we feel it is vitally important that we continue to share your work, promote your new collections, endorse new ideas and innovations and show the design world just how strong we are as a community. We may not be able to travel to conferences, overseas meetings and events for a while, but we at design et al, will do all we can to expose your work to clients globally during this time.

Studio Gathe

Set on the first floor of a late 19th century Apartment building in Oslo, this project is a collaboration between Interior Designer Hanne Gathe and homeowner and property developer Per Ove Bakke. The design is a beautiful expression of both the owner’s personality and new Nordic design.

Studio Gathe have been shortlisted for  Living Space – Global Award and City Space – Global Award in The International Design & Architecture Awards

Tell us a little about your background in design (education, experience, etc)
Everyone is an architect in my family, so my career was predestined. Studied at Moscow Architectural Institute — MARKHI from 1998. If I had to choose my career again, I would still have chosen this profession. In any case, one is better off doing something that person really likes. Architecture is something I really like.

What projects are you currently working on?
Today we are putting out for sale 2 large apartments in Austria, designing 2 apartments in
London, a house in Greece is also on sale from us. We are engaged in more than 6 projects in Moscow, and we have recently completed the designs for 2 penthouses in Rostov-on-Don.
