The field of architecture is not exactly a hot topic of study for most undergraduate students. The closest they might get to the subject is an art history survey course in which architecture is presented as a parade of styles across the millennia—just another form of visual expression.
The Midnight Charette is an explicit podcast about design, architecture, and the everyday. Hosted by architectural designers David Lee and Marina Bourderonnet, it features a variety of creative professionals in unscripted conversations that allow for thoughtful takes and personal discussions. A wide array of subjects are covered with honesty and humor: some episodes provide useful tips for designers, while others are project reviews, interviews, or explorations of everyday life and design. The Midnight Charette is also available on iTunes, Spotify, and YouTube.
This week David and Marina are joined by Leo Marmol, Architect and Founding Principal of the hugely successful design-build architecture firm Marmol Radziner. Leo discusses the benefits of design-build, the struggling profession of architecture, the perils of technology, smart homes, modernist thinking in design and much more. Enjoy!
Modern spaces can be flat and fruitless when it comes to picking out interesting architectural features. They can also lack warmth when geared toward the minimalist aesthetic, which can prove a challenge to counteract. When you’ve fallen in love with a streamlined home, how exactly do you go about building a welcoming atmosphere that’s a pleasure to come home to? These two home design visualisations by Rolig Design are great examples of how to load flat spaces with depth, without calling for textured wall panels or floating fixtures. These examples will largely leave your new silky smooth walls alone, and put the bulk of your expenditure toward pieces that could even move home with you.
This snug brown modern sofa instantly conjures up imagery of cosy afternoons lounging under a blanket with a great book, or stretched out with popcorn on movie nights. Three modern wall sconces become architectural-like features where there are none.
Two marble coffee tables situated in an interlocking arrangement expand a lounge layout into the larger room space, rather than leaving it apologetically hugging tight to the wall.
Placing a modern fruit bowl on the coffee table brings in the offering of food, which is always a welcoming touch.
Flooring is the largest area of decor after the walls, so it’s an ideal place to introduce warmth when you’ve already opted for cool paintwork. Herringbone wood flooring ups the visual temperature of a space whilst adding exquisite texture too.
This linear chandelier matches with the wall sconces in the lounge area, and artwork from the same collection features here too. The commonality between zone decor builds a comforting continuity in the home, an identity.
Curvaceous lines give the dining table an approachable, practical aesthetic. The Gubi Beetle chair echoes the same vibe–modern yet soft. Hanging curtains from way up in the ceiling line, all the way down to the floor will infinitely improve the cosiness factor in any room. It doesn’t matter what size the windows or the patio door, go full height for full plush factor.
Chunky kitchen bar stools evoke the family feel more so than spindally designs. These robust little numbers look like they could happily take some knocks and not be too worse for wear, which makes everybody feel way more relaxed.
Greige kitchen cabinets provide just enough tint to differentiate them from crisp white painted walls, without causing the kitchen to stand out too jarringly in an open plan living room. Flat fronted drawer units maintain the streamlined finish of a minimalist home.
Moving on to example number two. Wall panelling doesn’t have to be overly decorative, smooth slabs can still bring in texture via wood grain effect. A backdrop like this instantly warms without having to consider a colour scheme as such.
Two-toned cabinets bring added interest to a flat minimalist kitchen.
A minimalist workspace can be worked into covered balcony areas, disused closets, alcoves, or the space under the stairs.
Bespoke hallway furniture is truly transformational. Not only can it solve a home’s storage problems of clothing or equipment overspill, but it can become the home of beautiful bench seats and decorative hanging nooks.
Black marble furniture looks stunning against umber decor. Couple the two together to make an instant impression in a home entryway.
Umber shades fashion a cozy bedroom.

Dark luxury interiors speak of sophistication and sweet decadence, like a really indulgent chocolate bar. These two particular deep toned designs are home to strictly high end furniture, expansive room proportions and some truly stand out features that would only be found amongst high society. This is an opportunity to take a look at luxury at its finest inside one home that has infusions of vivacious red running through its veins, and a red ferrari parked in its living room. Also, the impressive apartment of a wealthy Russian photographer that is styled with highly decorative classical touches alongside modern technologies, cloaked in dark boiserie with bang on trend fixtures.

Located in Dubai, UAE, this 130 square metre modern dark interior design pulses with bright red accents running through. Sectional sofa arrangements are strung around the edges of a huge open plan living room, creating an undercurrent of colour at the base of jet black walls.
KAWS cartoon bear sculptures add a glossy element by the red footstool. Only the highlights on their reflective surface define them from their flat black backdrop. A minimalist wall sconce shines concentrated light onto the sofa.
Huge windows pile natural light onto the remainder of the red sectional sofa. A freestanding modern fireplace glows at the centre of the lounge layout.
A couple more multi-directional wall sconces snake around the opposite end of the couch, adding pin pricks of light onto a basic black wall. Black window blinds build dark bridges across expanses of window glass.
One side of the expansive living room contains a large circular platform that highlights a Ferrari.
A modern chandelier installation throws spotlight onto the focal point of the car lover’s living room.
A black backsplash and countertop interrupt the metallic kitchen run.
Moving on into the private rooms, a black bedroom scheme with metallic accents makes up the master suite.
Black basins top the double sink bathroom vanity.

Our next deliciously dark luxury interior measures in under 75 square metres, though the decor builds a feeling of much larger grandeur. This is the home of an affluent young bachelor, a photographer, who requested an apartment design where classical style and modern technologies are harmoniously combined. Decorative boiserie brings flourishes to black painted walls, which adds drama behind gold sconces and a gold floor lamp.
A stunning gold chandelier hangs from a traditional ceiling rose, on an all black ceiling.
The profile of the homeowner is one who likes to travel and very rarely cooks–though this doesn’t stop the kitchen from being a thing of sheer beauty. Glass doors keep it on display to the lounge at all times, which also increases the sense of space and light.
A kitchen prep counter and hob is hidden away behind decorative panelled doors. The eye-catching dining room chandelier is the Volta L92.2T, which drips with gold. Designer kitchen bar stools add sumptuous texture and style.
More boiserie wall panels decorate the grey bedroom, though this time with the addition of monochrome art prints.
The bathroom holds a more diluted scheme of graphite gray in place of black. Deep brown tiles cover the floor. An illuminated vanity mirror and bathroom vanity lights add golden glow.
