Hope Against Cancer’s cycling team are currently pushing themselves to the limit of endurance cycling from Geneva to Milan to raise vital funds for the fight against cancer.
19 Limited are proud to support our Creative Director Andy Redman and the rest of the 74 strong team as they near the end of their epic adventure.
The route is both challenging and spectacular and at 360 miles long with nearly 17,000 feet of climbing, it’s certainly a serious undertaking.
You can find out more as well as track the cyclists by clicking the following link: http://www.hfcr.org/events/160-hopes-italian-job/
Although all remnants of the former petrol station have been removed in the Boneyard renovation, what has replaced them is a slick industrial interior space of corrugated iron and glazed tiles, blackened steel and reclaimed wood, neon and brass, accessed through a weighty black port-holed door that promises good times within.
Things move from a Route 66-inspired inside to a backwoods sawmill vibe outside in the shape of a metal-covered timber yard dining and drinking area, prettified with hanging bauble lights and a few hardy cactii. If the bone marrow burgers and sides of chilli con carne chips aren’t reason enough to pull in for a pitstop at Boneyard (and let’s face it, they should be) there’s a food market named Pump that runs in the forecourt, with colourful shacks selling global food favourites.
Thrill-seeking travelers can now stay in Skylodge, a trio of transparent pods placed 400 feet (122m) above the ground on a cliff-face in the Peruvian Andes.
Located near the city of Cuzco, the three 24 x 8 meter capsules, made from polycarbonate and aluminum, are operated by Peruvian tour company Natura Viva and overlook the spectacular Sacred Valley – a region renowned for its breathtaking scenery, small villages and death-defying roads.
The price you’ll have to pay to stay in one of these incredibly unique capsules, is having to climb a 400-foot steel ladder embedded in the almost sheer-cliff face to get to one of these unique hotels. If you don’t fancy that, you can also hike or use a zip-wire. Oh, and the other price you’ll have to pay is approximately $300 USD.
An unusual sighting appeared on the beach in Worthing recently, the aim was to create an installation that would engage the locals and get them talking. So a team spent six weeks designing and building the classic beach hut structure (with a twist!) that matched the size of other huts on the beach.
The team used laser-cut mirrored acrylic sheets on top of wooden panels and finished it off with dark grey gaps between the sheets which help define the shape. The hut was installed at 4 AM on a Saturday morning and word spread quickly. Just imagine all the selfies everyone must have been taking!
Everyone loves a bit of summer camping, the great British weather isn’t always guaranteed, however unhelpful weather shouldn’t be a problem in Melbourne, St Jerome’s has opened up with a camping/hotel hybrid combining the sense of freedom and adventure of open-air living with the feeling of security and top-notch facilities that only a waterproof, bricks and mortar hotel can offer.
This is next level “glamping”, with 20 spacious bell tents complete with proper beds and all the other hotel room amenities you’d expect, arranged on the rooftop of the Melbourne Central retail/entertainment complex in the CBD. Guests still get to fall asleep under the starry sky, only here the 360-degree panorama glows with the light of the cityscapes towering landmarks, and it’s only the shortest of hikes to Melbourne’s bars and restaurants. Although the grass is the kind you can roll up and … Read More »
Booze & Tattoos. What could possibly go wrong?
The inspiration was to create an approachable tattoo shop, while still staying true to its roots, a place where someone would feel comfortable coming in for their first tattoo, or their tenth.
The plan was to create a space that would evolve over time, the walls are covered in chalkboard paint, allowing artists and patrons to sketch their latest tattoos or thoughts on the shop’s walls. “This store is an eclectic mix of tattoo culture,” From the art and books to the vintage barber chairs, it’s all held together with a very subtle contemporary design aesthetic.
The bar is to host DJs and bands in the evening, making the venue accessible even to those who aren’t committed to the tattoo scene.
Fondazione Prada, an institution dedicated to contemporary art and culture, has opened the doors to its new Milan headquarters. Helmed by Miuccia Prada and Patrizio Bertelli, the new 205,000-square-foot space is located in Largo Isarco, the southern part of Milan, and is made up of seven existing buildings recovered from a distillery that dates back to 1916 and three new structures. “We want to be proactive, stimulate artists, drawing young people closer to concepts that are often forgotten,” said Bertelli.
Currently, Fondazione Prada features the “Serial Classic” exhibit dedicated to classical sculpture; “An Introduction,” which showcases the different inspirations that led Prada and Bertelli to create Fondazione Prada; and lastly, a collection of cars reworked by various artists. Fondazione Prada includes a cinema, a library, and other facilities, such as the ‘Haunted House’, an intimate space that will house site-specific installations conceived by international … Read More »

The architect used dynamite, chippers and saws to bore through the huge boulders of a rocky outcrop on a North American island to make room for this raw concrete house.
Traces of the stone continue through the house’s interior, where a cave-like bathroom tunnels through one of the boulders and features a mirror that hangs down from a hole in the ceiling.

Chicago has welcomed London-born Soho House into the fold at what is the company’s fifth American outlet. Beginning life as a private members’ club in 1995, Soho House has evolved into a diverse hospitality business comprising restaurants, cinemas, spas and hotels.

Here in Chi-Town it’s a six-storey former warehouse, dating back to 1907 and formerly owned by the Chicago Belting Factory, that now houses the Soho House Chicago (SHC) hotel.
and what a great stylish hotel it is…
Shoreditch Warehouse is Renovated into Vibrant Spaces.

The reason behind it? Helen, our Office Manager and blogger is currently away on maternity leave after the birth of her beautiful daughter, Taylor.

Join Ted for a drink?
OK, so you’ve heard about Ted Baker’s new Belgium Store in Maasmechelen right? We all know that each of Ted’s stores is unique and Maasmechelen is no different. This one’s inspired by the very thing that Belgium’s most famous for, beer! (OK, forget the seafood, chocolate and waffles for the moment). The brewing influence is evident throughout and to help with the new store opening 19 were asked to design and manufacture a vintage looking beer cart. Designed to pull the crowds as well as the pints, the cart was used for promotional activities and giveaways to great effect, as Ted’s opening week was a fantastic success. Look out for it in the future!
Would you fancy staying in a tin shed for your next holiday?
A humble Australian structure, the tin shed isn’t the most obvious accommodation, but designer Raffaello Rosselli has turned an apparently ugly duckling into a swan. The tumbledown structure as it was had to be taken down and reassembled, and in the process Rossi was able to work the mismatched colour of the panelling that had accumulated over the years into a patchwork quilt effect that softens the appearance of the hard and rusting surface. The panels have been left largely untreated to allow further changes to the exterior over time. Rossi also added some smart steel windows – the shed had none before renovation – and their rust colour but sharp lines reflect both old and new.
Inside is also a very nice place to be, with pine flooring and … Read More »
An old Victorian Mission, tucked behind Hoxton Square, Shoreditch London. Using a brilliant blend of authentic period features and newly made edgy facsimiles, the team have created something truly amazing.
It begins as all good religious experiences do, with a sign, glowing and mysterious and in the Meatailer family blacked-out and neon contrast style, complimented by a stained-glass-like window. The main hall, dotted with war memorials and plaques, demanded careful reverence, and the huge stained glass ceiling letting in the only light is inspirational.

A former sauna in Vienna’s Prater has rapidly developed into one of the city’s most prominent clubs.
The Pratersauna radiates the charm of the 1960s. No other club in the city has such a lovely pool in the garden, which is open for swimming in the afternoon during the summer season. At other times, the swimming pool is illuminated during the night and acts as an attractive setting for parties.
Inside the Pratersauna, several floors operate at the same time; people can also dance right next to the cold plunge pool of the former sauna. The music ranges from Minimal Techno to electronic live acts. In summer, the parties spill out onto the garden and terrace.
Many parts of the old sauna, which was built in 1965, intermingle with contemporary, newly designed elements. The façade, bar area and WCs of the Pratersauna have … Read More »

GANT RUGGER STORE, 47 Beak Street, London, W1F 9DB
19 were very excited to be awarded the contract to create this unique environment, albeit on a challenging time scale, and were delighted to handover a day early!!
It was also a pleasure to work with the in-house design team, to turn their concepts into reality.
A serious test was to remove the existing ‘permanent’ wall coverings to reveal a previous life, which had been hidden for years. Namely the ceramic tiles and terrazzo wall finishes which were carefully exposed to become part of the store fabric.
To enhance the retail area, an old stairwell was covered to maximise floor space and create an open approach to the newly constructed ‘old’ changing rooms, which were sympathetically clad in antique oak panelling and accessed through reclaimed antique doors.
The in-store displays were created from a combination of bespoke … Read More »

Easily the most talked about venue to open in Bucharest this year. When you walk in, you will see why it is indeed biutiful! An enormous industrial chic space with a little added glamour, creating a rather special atmosphere rather like an upmarket, contemporary central London bar and grill.
Although this is Romania and there are some wax-coated candlesticks and moody exposed brick corners, its definitely not dark and spooky what actually jumps out and surprises customers is a multi-coloured moose head. The lighting doesn’t stick to flame-powered either, veering from atmospheric to something rather more cabaret, and throw in for good measure industrial spotlights to match wall-mounted fans, lovely old copper brewing vats, stacks of beer barrels, mismatched bar stools… The overall finish of this bar is amazing the bight warm colours gives off a very welcoming feel.

Currently the hotel is overlooking a river front in Antwerp. And then soon it will move on to its next destination.
These containers are made in China and shipped all over the world, but it’s often cheaper to reuse these containers rather than sending them back empty. So they are often left behind in Ports including Antwerp’s. This unique concept offers the ideal mix of adventure and comfort at some of the most impressive locations in the city.

The UK’s first Christian Louboutin boutique for men has been unveiled in London Mayfair’s Dover Street. His red soles are synonymous with the heel-clad feet of Victoria Beckham, Rihanna and Kate Moss, but now Christian Louboutin has a dedicated store to cater to his male fans, which we love!

A new high quality coffee house in Bath on Kingsmead Square.
Inspired by the quest for high-quality coffee, professional and friendly service and a creative atmosphere where students from Bath Art College, local schools and individuals working with them, can display their work, and some to be carried out on site.
Why Society? – individuals creating their own sense of community a kind of ‘friendly association’ where everyone is welcome is the idea behind it.
The design of the coffee house has a very contemporary feel, with its reclaimed and salvaged fittings, panelled walls & antique pendants, floorboards on the walls left looking worn around the edges, unvarnished tabletops, and chipboard!
19 like the Society Café it has very friendly welcoming vibe where I would feel right at home with my tea & cake.. Hmmm lovely!
Entitled Literature Versus Traffic
Spanish lighting designers Luzinterruptus dispersed 10,000 glowing books across the ground at Federation Square in Melbourne for The Light In Winter festival.
Entitled Literature Versus Traffic, the installation was designed to resemble a river that winds along the pavements and roads of the busy public square.
The designers sourced the discarded books from local libraries and placed LED lights behind the pages of each one to illuminate the printed words.
Over the course of the month they were also able to gradually move the books into different patterns, and on the final day visitors were invited to choose a few to take home, while others were donated to passing drivers through open car windows.
“The objective was to create a symbolic gesture in which literature took control of the streets and became the conquerer of the public space,” explained one the anonymous artists.

RATTLESNAKE OF ANGEL, LONDON
a bar with bite…
Upper Street in Angel, Islington has plenty of bars and restaurants, but this is an exciting new bar project and we think its great!
Initial appearances are of a very rock ‘n’ roll, dimly-lit, American bar. Exposed brickwork, shades of blacks and reds, wooden tables, leather booths and stools, shady corners, television screens and aerodynamic logos above the bar all seem to suggest glossy biker venue.
Upholstered in distressed olive leather with parts of the wall and bar are nailed on, as if hastily replaced after a fracas. This is an incredibly unique bar with amazing amounts of character and details, it’s a great live music venue in London as well as a diner, club and cocktail bar.. And welcome you on a rooftop terrace.
Rattlesnake is now one of the biggest bars in London.

Christian Koban Jewellery Shop – Berlin
19 are impressed with Christian Koban Jewellery shop in Berlin, with the location set in the railway arches & the lighting against the black rubber tyres is great.. Very sharp
In the showroom shop of Berlin-based jewellery designer Christian Koban, four tonnes of rubber tires are given a new display function.
‘When I first visited the site, it was like an old workshop with a vast array of windows,’ recalls designer Neels Kattentidt. ‘Based on this, I created a contrast between high-end lifestyle products and industrial charm.’
Kattentidt left existing brick surfaces intact, while adding recycled car tires as display units with LED lighting, plus as hanging light accents. Meanwhile, clothing hangs from recycled bike stands suspended from the walls.
The shop is in building below a S-Bahn rail track that connects east and west Berlin.

We are all psyched for the Olympics opening ceremony, and what good timing is that Opening Ceremony , the New York-based concept fashion store and label that has been taking the world by storm, has finally landed in London.

Topman London Oxford Street
19 like the very stylish suite that has been designed for Men who like the personal touch to their shopping.
A new Personal Shopping Suite for Topman’s Oxford Street flagship store has been designed to meet the growing demand for men’s personal shopping appointments.

Rio Casino, Vegas
In what might be one of the rarest documented roulette run’s in Las Vegas history, a professional gambler has taken a photograph that purportedly shows a roulette wheel hitting the number 19 seven times in a row.
But that did happen, or certainly appears to have happened, at the Rio at 8:32 p.m. Monday as pro poker player Jeff Romano took a photo of a roulette wheel display screen showing the No. 19 hitting on seven straight spins.
In a subsequent tweet, Romano wrote that he had been walking back to the poker room, when he passed the roulette table and saw the improbable statistic. He noted that there were a few people at the roulette table “jumping up and down” and “going crazy.”
The odds of the 19’s hitting seven times in succession as 3 billion to 1.

19 love this very impressive store for BMW, Paris. The lighting is fantastic and brings a feeling of fun and excitement to the world of car showroom’s which is unique and entirely suited to the brand values of BMW.

The Hotel, Watergate Bay.
19 came across this hotel and love the design with its Bright colours giving a very warm and relaxed feeling with dramatic views of the Cornish coastline. The not spa-spa is set to open on 21st June 2012.
The consultancy was appointed to the project last year on the strength of its work for Shoreditch House, and says it aimed to ‘challenge the traditional way of thinking’ in spa design.
Household, which worked alongside architect Stride Treglown, says it has moved away from typically ‘formal, hushed, clinical and sterile’ spas and moved towards a more warm and ‘lived-in’ space.
The Hotel & Extreme Academy gives you all the great things you’d find in a mountain resort – on a spectacular beach on the north Cornwall coast.
The spa features an infinity pool encased in glass, as well as timber-decked terraces … Read More »

Established in 1755 Wolsey is one of the early pioneers of the Industrial Revolution. The brand has clothed some of Britain’s bravest and most inspirational men. Today Wolsey continues to craft exceptional clothing for men of exploration and adventure.
Taking inspiration from Wolsey’s original Leicester factory, 19 designed the store to reflect the heritage Wolsey is so rightly proud of.
