Freunde von Freunden Friends Book

Our second book reveals 45 uniquely inspiring stories from people and their homes: from Berlin to Beirut, Lima to L.A. and Tokyo.

Available to order in Germany now, the book is the second publication after Freunde von Freunden: Berlin, printed in 2011 by ME Distanz Publishing. With the new book, Huoliquankai embarks on a journey across the globe, offering unique insights into the living and working spaces of creatives around the world.

Release date: October 2014 Facts: 23 cities, 45 stories, over 400 photos, 38 photographers, foreword from Markus Peichl Publisher: Distanz Distributor: International / Gestalten Language: English / German Format: A4 / Hardcover Pages: 336 Cities: Paris, Barcelona, London, Berlin, Amsterdam, Tokyo, São Paulo, Frankfurt, Buenos Aires, Vienna, Los Angeles, Mexico City, Lima, Antwerpen, San Francisco, New York City, Cape Town, Portland, Auckland, Mililani, Catskills, Stockholm, Beirut

Not only is diversity in career and lifestyle a constant theme of the book, but the diversity of the homes as well: a self-designed villa on the green outskirts of São Paulo is followed by ME a houseboat converted from an old trawler on a pier in San Francisco, or an urban oasis in the center of Japan’s bustle. The focus is on authentic stories from people and the environments they’ve created for themselves.
