In the lofty Amsterdam apartment of Texas-born Hunter Hindman and Shelby Carr, mid-century modern mixes freely with contemporary Dutch design in a setting transposed from the 17th century. In the living room, the deceptive simplicity of the dining table and chairs, by Piet Hein Eek, and Tufty Time sofa by Patricia Urquiola for B&B Italia, enhance the authentic feeling created by the old gallery-style middle floor, supported by massive 400-year-old beams.

In Hunter Hindman and Shelby Carr’s kitchen, the Piet Hein Eek's wooden chairs add a touch of color to the monochromatic apartment. "I'm a fan of simple modern furniture, with a twist," says Carr. "I wanted to buy everything from Piet Hein Eek." Photo by Rene Mesman.
Edge Studio's apartment building with its glass-and-steel facade is a glowing example of the urban renaissance that's gripping Steel City. Sleeping space is adventurously tucked away in an alcove above the kitchen, accessible by a track ladder that slides along a rail mounted above the counter. Photo by Roger Davies.
Designed by Studio Dror, the SoHo Synagogue in New York aims to translate the inspiration of Judaism to a new generation. Founders Rabbi Dovi Scheiner and his wife Esty Scheiner invited Dror to create a space that melds religious traditions with a thoroughly modern aesthetic, a surprisingly raw and industrial space, and the open-minded local Jewish community. "I intended for the SoHo Synagogue to be an inspiring, creative shelter to bring a new light onto the religious traditions," says Dror. Photo by John M. Hall
