Episode 203

29 minutes

As ‘The Monocle Guide to Cosy Homes’ hits the shelves we take a look at the products, places and people that make for some of the best places to live. We visit furniture shop Førest London and hear from architect Pascal Flammer who built a “stöckli”, or farmstead, for his family. Plus: we take a virtual tour of Barcelona’s remarkable Walden 7 apartment complex.
