Studios Houses and Single-Family Homes by Peter Kunz Architecture

Studios Houses and Single-Family Homes by Peter Kunz Architecture

These studio houses and homes by Swiss Peter Kunz architects are absolutely superb, a fantastic mix of glass and concrete, with the stripped back white walls inside adding a unique contrast. All of these builds are light traps, designed with the big glass windows to really let the light penetrate the wide open spaces. But it’s also interesting to note the numerous shadows created by the dark …

Lighting and Details by Fuse-atelier Architects

Lighting and Details by Fuse-atelier Architects

I’m very disappointed by the lack of architecture on the site at the moment, usually we’re brimming with inspiration and creativity on that front, but lately I’ve been pursuing other avenues of design. Yesterday I watched a small but concise documentary on a build by a couple that broke through numerous barriers to build their so called “dream home”. It was a modernist retreat that had three floors, one was sunken in to the ground …

Junya Ishigami, ‘How small? How vast? How architecture grows’

Junya Ishigami, ‘How small? How vast? How architecture grows’

Louis Kahn Visual Archive by Naquib Hossain

If you’ve not seen it before I’d recommend having a browse here, it’s basically a homage to Louis Kahn and his works through a collection of photographs. Interestingly enough …

Santa Julia House by Emilio Marin Studio

Santa Julia House by Emilio Marin Studio

Emilio Marín studied at the University of Chile, opening his studio, Emilio Marin Studio, in 2005. Two years later Juan Carlos López joined the project. One thing I like about them both is their conviction when defending their work philosophy; they enjoy the day to day, doing what they want to, when and with whom they want to, and taking as long as they want to do it. Santa Julia House, presented here in this imagery above and below …

Architecture and Furniture by Alejandro Sticotti

Architecture and Furniture by Alejandro Sticotti

Ever since I discovered Alejandro Sticotti, a leading residential architect and furniture designer from Buenos Aires, Argentina, I’ve really been fascinated by his work. He studied architecture at the University of Buenos Aires before establishing his own line of furniture, NET, twenty-five years ago. Ever since the beginning, Alejandro has expressed his preference for simple lines and their affinity with the funcionalist ideology. For him …
