    Where Architects Live: inside the domains of Hadid, Chipperfield, Libeskind and more

    Milan 2014: new photography reveals the homes and workspaces of architects including Shigeru Ban, Zaha Hadid, David Chipperfield and Daniel Libeskind, ahead of an exhibition in Milan next month.

    The exhibition, entitled Where Architects Live, will centre around the domestic spaces of nine eminent designers, also including Mario Bellini, Marcio Kogan, Bijoy Jain, and Massimiliano and Doriana Fuksas. Curated by Francesca Molteni, the show will also feature interviews recorded with each resident.

    Massimiliano and Doriana Fuksas



    A glimpse inside the Paris home of Italian architects Massimiliano and Doriana Fuksas shows a stark interior with exposed ceiling beams and a grand fireplace. To this, the architects have added pastel colours and original Jean Prouvé furniture.

    David Chipperfield




    David Chipperfield's three-storey Berlin base has a raw concrete interior typical of the British architect's restrained architectural approach. This is offset by bold splashes of colour introduced by a green velvet sofa and a vibrant orange bookcase.

    Zaha Hadid



    The interior of Zaha Hadid's London studio is filled with original artworks by the architect, as well as models documenting projects from across her career, which are displayed on organically curved surfaces.

    Shigeru Ban



    Curved openings puncture the volume of the Tokyo home of this year's Pritzker Prize laureate, Shigeru Ban. Located in the Hangei Forest district, the house was designed to avoid uprooting any trees and features walls made up of translucent glass blocks.

    Daniel Libeskind



    New York architect Daniel Libeskind resides in a brightly lit apartment that centres around a drawing board. Other additions include Le Corbusier-designed chairs and plain white curtains.

    Mario Bellini



    A triple-height library is a highlight in the home of Milan architect Mario Bellini, a self-proclaimed book lover. A scaffolding system helps him to reach the highest shelves, while a grand piano sits in front.

    Marcio Kogan



    A piano is also one of the main focuses in the apartment belonging to Brazilian architect and Studio MK27 principal Marcio Kogan. Positioned within an apartment block of his own design, the space is filled with artworks, sculptures and other curiosities.

    Bijoy Jain



    The final interior reveals the Indian countryside residence and studio of Studio Mumbai principal Bijoy Jain, where he lives and works with a team of 60 craftsmen.

    Where Architects Live will be on show at the Milan Fairgrounds from 8 to 13 April.

    I love the mini chairs. And Jain's apartment. The piano with stuff piled on it looks like my coffee table.
