This house in São Paulo, designed by Brazilian architect Isay Weinfeld for a graphic designer, has a studio situated below street level opening onto a garden. It’s positively shagadelic, baby!
Yes, thank you. This will do me fine.
Tom Kundig of Seattle studio Olson Sundberg Kundig Allen Architects has designed an extension to a steel pipe factory, using giant pipes as architectural elements.
The building, for T Bailey Inc, will use sections of the pipes made at the facility that are usually used to make wind turbine towers.
With this process, the unevenness is reflected on the epoxy’s light and shade of color, where deep points are mirrored by dense colors and shallow points by more transparent shades.
Via of paper and things.
Loving this glass photographer’s studio and boat house in Ontario, Canada, designed by archtects GH3 to maximise natural daylight.
“A photographer’s live/work studio that is continuously bathed in diffused and undiminished natural light. The transparent facade, a continuous curtain wall glazed in Cradle to Cradle-certified Starphire glass, becomes the essential element in a photographic apparatus to produce images unobtainable in a conventional studio. The availability and fidelity of north–facing light in the double-height space provide the photographer with unparalleled natural illumination, while the clarity of the glazing transforms the site and surrounding vistas into a sublime, ever-changing backdrop.”
Studio Lindfors has released a new series of images called Aqualta – a play on Acqua Alta, the increasing high tides flooding Venice – which visually explores what a coastal metropolis might feel like a hundred years from now due to rising sea levels. The images illustrate two cultural and financial epicenters – Tokyo and New York – adapting to, rather than resisting, rising waters.
Loving this house extension by ODOS Architects. The new addition to a traditional mid-terrace house in Dublin was conceived as a simple form which connects at ground level to the existing house.
In order to stop the new addition being visible above the roof line of the house, the new extension is partially sunken to comply with tight planning regulations.
