Craven Road Studio by Shim-Sutcliffe Architects

Craven Road Studio by Shim-Sutcliffe Architects

I’ve literally gone around the houses today, as I searched for a dash of architecture that would remind us the value of great design. I found myself quickly fascinated by the work of Toronto based partners Shim-Sutcliffe who have created a great number of mesmerising, highly functional, sleek dwellings over the years. I was became in awe of two projects in particular that I was hoping …

Alvar Aalto Studio Outtakes by Leslie Williamson

Alvar Aalto Studio Outtakes by Leslie Williamson

One of the main things that keeps me constantly captivated and inspired is the small network we’ve been lucky enough to generate here. I love the idea that once we’ve shared the work of someone that isn’t always the end of the line, I like checking back and seeing how creatives works have progressed, it’s good to know people are getting the rewards and opportunities they deserve. Leslie William …

Studio Imagery from Siemon & Salazar

I don’t mean to come across as somebody who’s always complaining, or a snob for that matter, but I often find myself disappointed when searching the shelves of mainstream shops. I appreciate the concept of appealing to a larger market but in doing so it feels like we are losing touch with objects that have been made to last, made with a real love and attention to detail. I like to be able to see the craftsmanship and hard graft within the object …

Imagery from Converted into Houses by Charles Fracchia and Jeremiah O. Bragstad

I’m currently undertaking a bit of decorating and furnishing at home, so in recent days I’ve been taking a browse around to see what I can conjure up in terms of inspiration and ideas to give the house an air of individualism. I found myself revisiting the comprehensive curation of a bohemian style that is Charles Fracchias and Jeremiah O. Bragstad’s book “Converted …

Architectural Photography by Richard Anderson

Architectural Photography by Richard Anderson

I’ve been scouring around the web for a little architecture today, with Andrew Geller from my last post sitting in the back of my mind. I enjoyed putting this piece together so much that I wanted to ensure I found something today that felt like it would present equal measure of ingenuity and design consideration whilst being original, I knew it was going to be a difficult act to follow. I’ve …

Erik Wahlstrom photographs Jockum Nordstrom’s Studio

I thought I’d start the week with a little photography as I’ve been browsing countless photographers portfolios this weekend, it’s always nice to check back and see what everyone’s been up to. I came across Swedish photographer Erik Wahlstrom last March thanks to the collaborative project he put together for Nowness which followed chef come artist Massimo Bottura. Upon revisiting Erik’s …

Photography by Michael Graydon

Photography by Michael Graydon

I’ve been feeling a little guilty about the lack of photographers that I’ve brought across here recently, so I’m attempting to make amends today with this collection from one of my new found favourites, Michael Graydon who’s based in Toronto. One thing that I’m not really a fan of, particularly with photographers work, is doubling up portrait images to showcase their projects. Admittedly I’ve been a culprit of this before but …

Pescher House by Richard Neutra

Pescher House by Richard Neutra

I’ve just noticed that this week the blog has become a bit of a graveyard, with Max Lamb and Aaron Rose the only souls amongst our content still living. I’d just like to confirm we don’t have any prejudice against those breathing, it’s just a coincidence that this has transpired. Saying this I’m not going to be bucking the week’s trend just yet as I stumbled upon this delightful house in Wuppertal, Germany that I couldn’t help but …

Brian W Ferry Photographs Joseph Shuldiner’s Home & Studio

We shared quite the multidisciplinary creative yesterday in Herbert Bayer and by coincidence Brian W Ferry presents us with another one today in this beautifully taken photography set of artist, designer, art director and author Joseph Shudiner’s home and studio in California. One thing that gives us the most satisfaction is the connections you make whilst working online which often leads …

Collection of work from Herbert Bayer

Collection of work from Herbert Bayer

It’s not everyday that I put together a more historical type post, however once I find one I often get bitten by the bug and a few follow in quick succession. So after sharing the wooden masterpieces of Alexandre Noll yesterday I went home and began reading about the Austrian multi-discipline designer and all round creative that was Herbert Bayer. He is someone who’s work I’ve crossed paths with before however I’d never …
