Hotel Fontevraud

Name: Hotel Fontevraud
Location: Loire Valley
Design: Patrick Jouin


To say that Hotel Fontevraud has a rich history would be an understatement. Constructed between 1101 and 1119 as an Fontevraud Abbey, hosting both Monks and Nuns. The order was dissolved during the French Revolution(1792) and was habituated again in 1804 as a prison. Serving as a prison for 159 years, the Abbey was handed over in 1963 and restoration work began to return it to it's former self. The current vision for Hotel Fontevraud is a 'Cité Idéal' or the intersection of intellect and culture by providing hospitality for guests.  

With this new chapter comes a new restaurant that celebrates its past while firmly establishing it's future.

Garage Project

Name: Garage Project
Location:Wellington, New Zeeland
Design: Matt Smith, Common Goods


We love a good brewery and Garage Project, located in New Zeeland, has recently grabbed our attention for its bold use of color, urban exterior, and simple tasting bar. 


Using a limited material palate, polished subway tiles contrast the warm wood bar and allow the beer on tap to shine.
