Gipsy House by Architect Craig Steely

Since opening up his own studio in 1995 architect Craig Steely has been turning heads with his creations, gaining recognition from the American Institute of Architects and getting published in the likes of Dwell, New York and Los Angeles Times. So it’s hardly surprising when browsing through his website that I found a project of his that I wanted to add to our archive, as his Gipsy house which we’re showcasing …

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 …

Today is that day so I guess I shall begin by explaining that Robert is an influential Mentor, Patron of Arts and Pioneering Architect who was presented with the Cleveland Arts Prize as a Special Citation for Distinguished Service …

Architecture + Influence : A Short Film on the Work of Philip Johnson

The Artek Open Archives

My loved ones over Christmas were kind enough to buy me several books that I’ve been yearning for over the past year, firstly ‘Dieter Rams: As Little Design as Possible’ which I’ve yet to dig into, and also ‘Alvar Aalto, Through the Eyes of Shigeru Ban’ which is one I’m currently reading. Even though it’s extremely long, a few paragraphs into the book and it got me thinking about his career and what influenced it, a company …

Browsing around today I stumbled across this idyllic home which can be found hiding away in the beautiful mountains of the North Cascades, situated in the Canadian province of British Columbia. I’ve recently been reading a little into the architectural phrase genius loci which is the idea that all landscape designs should be adapted to the context in which they are …

Admiring the Work of Architect Frank Lloyd Wright

As time goes by working here on the site it’s seems that a trend is starting to appear where I’m referencing less and less creatives from the present and more from the past. Barbara Hepworth was perhaps the most notable individual recently given the fact that she passed in 1975, so today I’m going to continue this running theme once more as we delve into the history of inspiring American architect Frank Lloyd Wright. I think what …

Estate in Extremadura by Abaton Architect Firm

Sometimes some of the most innovative designs are hidden away in places that you’d never imagine would harness such wonderful consideration for creating, like this abandoned stables found in the west of Cáceres which has been rejuvenated by Spanish architectural firm Abaton. I’ve not come across their work before but I was really impressed with their ability to combine lots of quaint rustic elements into a modern and contemp …

Short Film on Karen & Christian Boros

We return to a collective that we’re quite fond of today in Freunde von Freunden and their latest short film with German creative couple Karen and Christian Boros who collect art and house it in their living space. As I explained in today’s earlier post, architecture has played more of a prominent role in sourcing inspiration for me recently with the work of Freunden consistently consuming my urge in recent months for a little cons …

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 …

This is a prime example of two creative subjects coming together to form a great marriage, as seen here with this series of photography based on architecture by Grant Mudford. Incredible to see such great photography coupled with the admiration for the buildings themselves and how they’ve been designed, you really do see them in a whole new light.
