Design and Architecture by Hermann Kaufmann

Design and Architecture by Hermann Kaufmann

Searching through all these different architecture portfolios can get a bit samey, often the builds look very similar to all the others out there. Alongside my goal to discover new and interesting architects, I’m also on the hunt for technical details that showcase how the builds are constructed, importantly how they are developed and designed. Videos can be good, you can see construction …

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 …

Interior, Details and Spaces by Ian Shaw Architects

Interior, Details and Spaces by Ian Shaw Architects

After an unusual post yesterday, an object inspired by a real world use that had been made in to a smaller form, I thought I’d look for an architect that’s a little closer to home. Some people might say that I get caught up in Japanese culture and often showcase creatives, designers, and makers from this part of the world exclusively. As one can imagine when you live on the opposite site of …

Architecture and Interiors by Hiroyuki Shinozaki

Architecture and Interiors by Hiroyuki Shinozaki

Architecture hasn’t been a feature on the site as of late, so I’m making a conscious effort to slot some in to the mix. In fact, I’ve had a few draft posts saved of locations around the web that have inspired me but I hadn’t been able to string something together as such, so today we’re going to have a quick look at some works by talented Japanese architecture firm Hiroyuki Shinozaki. To be honest you might have come across a few …

Interior Spaces by Kouichi Kimura Architects

Interior Spaces by Kouichi Kimura Architects

I’m often stumped when it comes to architectural websites, usually the photography’s not quite there in terms of size or quality, which means I can’t showcase it on the blog (my standards are pretty high). Last week I decided to start a Pinterest of our own, follow us here if you’re on Pinterest yourself, with my sole intention being to create a mood-board type set-up for the website. This would give me an ideal place to group photos from …

Mixed Architectural Imagery by Artechnic

Mixed Architectural Imagery by Artechnic

I always have mixed feelings towards architecture, especially when I put together an article here on the site. It’s hard to come across works that really entice me and usually the ones that do have already been written about. Another problem is the ‘new modern’ trend that seems to be spreading across the richer parts of the world, particularly in the cities that are expanding such as Shanghai and Tokyo. I like it when architects build humble …

Jean Prouvé Architecture, Prefabricated and Dismantable Houses

As you may know already I’ve showcased various bits of imagery over the year from gallery Patrick Seguin, which happens to be one of my favourite “go to” places at the moment. Patrick is actually quite a prominent figure of the 20th century design world who helped promote various famous creatives such as the brilliant Charlotte Perriand, Pierre Jeanneret, Le Corbusier, and the man who we’ll …
