The unique musical form of the Bongó bar cabinet leaves no one indifferent. Like the echo of a drum, its elegance and perfect craftsmanship reverberate in every room. The beautiful combination of the oxidized brass handles with the fascinating, intricate veins of the Sahara Noir marble, conveys the elegance and sophistication of the Bongó cabinet. With automatic light switches, the Sahara Noir marble doors open to reveal the Patagonia Granite stone texture shine from within. More

Urban Villas

A Relaxing vibe was the driving thought behind the conceptualization of AA Urban Villas. The building itself was a mix used between a working space and a house. Lower levels are used for the work area where the owner works there. So the idea was to create a different surrounding resort feel like a house on the top floor. It was like coming home to a holiday home, a resort on a high cliff in Uluwatu, Bali. Ernest Theofilus Looking sunset on the pool deck in the afternoon. Makes the owner forget that they were living in the hustle-bustle of city life, after a hectic working hour. The land consists of 800m2. Inspired by resort villas, the building is separated into 2 blocks. Ernest Theofilus The front building consists of a Living,... More

William MacCollum   The desert is open space and long views, but also the close-up, detailed perfection of the cactus flower. It is nature’s serene minimalism. This is the setting for our project inside the gated community of The Vintage in Indian Wells, California. This project involved deep creative collaboration with the clients, who partnered with architect Marc Whipple and the W^R team on every aspect of the interior design, and personally curated or co-designed each of the many art pieces throughout the house. With a passion for racing and cars, and also for collecting fine wines, the program was going to include dazzling and innovative displays that would be both highly visible and striking artistic statements.

Project • By Whipple Russell ArchitectsHousing


William MacCollum   This project was built adjacent to the Mountain Course in the Bighorn Golf Club, Palm Desert, California, in the foothills of the Santa Rosa Mountains. The design of the central living space has formed a theatrical proscenium, framing the desertscape scene of mountains, trees, and sky. William MacCollum   Our client visited the desert frequently growing up, and always wanted a house there. In addition to an indoor/outdoor open feeling, he wanted to see water from every vantage point in the house.   “This is why we not only have the backyard patio that pockets neatly into the fireplace and kitchen, but have created the entryway courtyard, which is really a very large pond. From anywhe... More

Fillet Haus by Dig Architects

The articulation of Fillet Haus lies at the intersection of an endeavour for an immersive environment, a reimagining of contemporary interior architecture in the Indian apartment genre, and a habitat tailored perfectly to a certain lifestyle. Given that the site was a nondescript, 4BHK apartment in equally nondescript surroundings, the home was retailored to be an inward-looking one. The clients, a young, well-travelled family of three, were clear about their requirements: a contemporary living space that would do away with the extraneous. Consequently, of the four bedrooms, only two were retained. Of the remaining two, one was used to create a larger master bedroom, while the other was repurposed into a lounge cum guest room. Creating a me... More

Exhibition design for "ANUGA"

In our project we wanted to merge Georgian heritage and modern  design together to show visitors our  point of view  how to keep together heritage sites and modern shapes . We have  minimalistic shapes with white metal frames and historic Georgian house named "Oda" in all 3 stands. Also in Georgia wine has religious and cultural significance. Georgia is one of the oldest wine regions in the world and is considered as the “cradle of wine.”  The inspiration behind the shape of the building comes from Fibonacci’s golden ratio. The universe is built according to “divine proportions” and can be identified in the structure of many organisms. Caption Caption The main challenge of th... More

Casa Blanco

A young couple, in anticipation of starting a family, desired a new family home that reflected their cultural background and individual taste. He was Spanish, and was drawn to black and white minimalism. She was Mexican, and wanted splashes of color in a modern home. Caption Caption Their existing home in the Maryland suburbs was small and dark, and did not take advantage of the views to the green parkway behind it.  The design solution included razing the existing house, keeping the basement, and building a new 2 story home with a double height living space open to views and abundant natural light. Flanking the living space on two sides are kitchen, and TV lounge on the main level and bedrooms on the upper level.  C... More

FOG is about the purity of the contemporary interior, about style and eternity, about trend and comfort. A project in which we wanted to try something new, enjoying simplicity and creating harmony, working with materials and light. Caption Caption Minimalism, which stands out with modern details, natural materials – gives the apartment a general atmosphere. FOG is exactly the case when we poetize comfort, using not words but solutions and practicality. Caption Caption From the very entrance to the apartment, we are immersed in the basic concept. The common space for several functional zones was created by the feeling of “fresh air” and the opportunity to “breathe freely”. Several shades of... More
