Dwell Magazine is pleased to announce their first foray into interiors, looking at modern design from inside the envelope. While Dwell has long featured the fixtures and furnishings that help complete a truly modern home, this is the first issue completely dedicated the people and ideas that bring our favorite architecture to life. From furniture makers to interior designers, the issue aims to inspire both the design enthusiast as well as the design professional.
In Living Color: Exclusive Q&A with architect and MoMA curator Pedro Gadanho and a first look at his newest project in Almada, Portugal.
Hotel Registry: Dwell launches a new column in the magazine this month. “Hotel Registry” highlights forward-thinking design in the hospitality sector. Rather than serve as an announcement of the newest resorts and hotels, this regular feature will shine a spotlight on under-the-radar gems tried and tested by Dwell editors. The column originated online courtesy of Dwell Editor Jaime Gillin, former editor at Travel & Leisure. The inaugural Hotel Registry shares the story of Hotel Lautner in Desert Hot Springs, California. After four years of extensive renovations by interior designer Tracy Beckmann and her business partner, furniture designer Ryan Trowbridge, the hotel reopened last September to great reception. Lautner's own daughters were among the first guests and gave it their seal of approval.

This exchange will continue with a panel of experts at Dwell on Design (http://dod.dwell.com/) in June.

Georgia Peach: Texas-based designer Barbara Hill's transformed a traditional 1920's Atlanta home into a high-design dwelling for a family of four, epitomizing Dwell’s perspective that any home can be “modern on the inside”.
