Selection of Work from Akio Kamiya Architect & Associates

Selection of Work from Akio Kamiya Architect & Associates

Browsing over the portfolio of the Akio Kamiya studio earlier today I was really blown away by the way they’ve transformed a traditional Japanese aesthetic to incorporate modern elements. These projects I’ve brought across today really optimise why I get so inspired by architecture, the combination of structure, texture, lighting and unity within each builds environment is simply breath …

Chapelle Notre Dame du Haut by Le Corbusier

Chapelle Notre Dame du Haut by Le Corbusier

Exterior shots of the Chapelle Notre Dame du Haut taken by Paul Koslowski for Foundation Le Corbusier in 1997. Through my own research on Tadao Ando it’s been interesting to see the link between his concrete structures and Le Corbusier’s buildings and architecture. It all made sense when I saw this chapel as it linked a lot of the elements that Tadao uses in his buildings, it also seems ironic how he has undertaken a lot of chapel …

Architecture and Details by Tadao Ando

Architecture and Details by Tadao Ando

I’ve been meaning to write a short article on the brilliant Tadao Ando for a little while now, he’s an amazing architect with a classic eye for form and structure. I’m not sure how I actually came across his works in the first place but I’ve had quite a fascination with materials and the contrast you get from mixing man made and natural elements into one space, even if you incorporate it into object or environment. Another thing I also admire about …

The Barcelona Pavilion by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe

The Barcelona Pavilion by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe

On the hunt this morning for content something just popped into my mind, the thought of a Ludwig Mies van der Rohe post really attracted me for some reason. Maybe because we haven’t really explored his works before here or maybe because I’ve been reading up on this famous designer a fair bit. So off I went bumbling around the Mies Society homepage to construct a piece on ‘The Barcelona Pavilion …

North Bay House by Prentiss Architects

North Bay House by Prentiss Architects

We couldn’t reach wednesday without a little architecture to satisfy our creative cravings, so I’ve sourced a recent build by Seattle based studio Prentiss Architects which will hopefully cater for everyone’s needs. This home is actually quite deceptive as it’s a lot larger than it looks here, I don’t however think we can criticise the studio for this, in fact it’s more of a compliment as the last thing you want a house to do …

A Look at the Latest Work from Poteet Architects

A Look at the Latest Work from Poteet Architects

I’ve been keeping an eye out for a little architecture recently but until now I’ve yet to find anything that really stood out to me. So when I was browsing through our own backlog of posts I found a few leads and I came across this great selection of work from Poteet Architects who are based out of San Antonio, Texas. Last time we spoke upon Jim Poteet’s brainchild it was more focused around a single project whereas this …

João Canziani Photographs the Family Home of Architect Ray Kappe

João Canziani Photographs the Family Home of Architect Ray Kappe

Rummaging through the internet late last night I found myself admiring the work of two creatives in one project, the first being Californian architect Ray Kappe and the second photographer Joao Canziani. I actually found this wonderful set that explores the family home of Ray Kappe sitting within the arcives over at Dwell, which as always is the perfect stop for any design …

Selected works from Marc Corbiau

Selected works from Marc Corbiau

Mark presented some architectural inspiration yesterday so I thought I’d continue this trend today as we visit the wonderful work of Marc Corbiau and his architect firm who are responsible for these creations seen here before us. Within this selection of seven photos we have three exterior and four interior looks with each harnessing a clean cut minimal aesthetic within an open plan and spacious environment. For …

Maison Louis Carré by Alvar Aalto

Maison Louis Carré by Alvar Aalto

Today I thought I’d bring over this imagery that I found last night thanks to my random perusing, it always leads me into good spots around the web. Usually I start with a designer of some sort, this time Alvar Aalto, and I head out with the intention to learn something new and end up finding an abundance of great imagery that I can showcase here as well. Luckily it comes with a great story, such as this post which is …

Admiring the work of Lake Flato Architect Studio

Admiring the work of Lake Flato Architect Studio

I think when you love everyday design like we do, it’s inevitable that you’re going to fall for architecture in a big way. Much like all the other elements we share here on the site, architecture provides a big dose of inspiration for us on a daily basis. Particularly in the morning when I tend to browse around for some breathtaking homes like these ones from Lake Flato, all of which motivate me to work hard so one day I can …
