Volga House by Architect Peter Kostelov

Russia isn’t somewhere that we’ve typically turned to in terms of showing architecture here on the blog, however I came across the work of Peter Kostelov earlier and was really impressed with the way he was using reclaimed materials within his projects. He’s a former winner of the International Architect Award and has claimed a great number of prizes in his own country for the way he is able to repurpose what has been cast aside by others …

Hidden Valley Home by Marmol Radziner

Given our mid-century tastes in architecture recently built projects don’t tend to crop up every day that impress us, I guess we are rather selective. However, today I’ve been admiring the work of Marmol Radziner again and this prefabricated build they’ve put together in the Moab desert of Utah which has been used as a vacation home by it’s two adventure seeking owners. I’ve decided to highlight this house because I think …

Lindau House by K-M Architektur

We visit rural Germany now through the understated home that K-M Architects have designed and built in the Hochbuch village of Lindau. This house simply feels inherently the way architecture should be in my opinion, free of clutter, an emphasis on the environment it surrounds itself in, and a careful consideration for the way the interior will be used on a daily basis. The simplicity of this home is absolutely bliss. A big high …

Recycled Furniture by Patrick and Regitze Kerti

We’ve consciously tried to take a step back from the platform over the past few days and have really wanted to staple down the direction that we want to take in order to reach our end goal. Putting together the blog and shop has been an incredible journey for both of us creatively and the difficulty we’re sometimes faced with is keeping the fluidity of our message between the two entities. It’s just a case of reaffirming what we have in our heads so it …

Sycamore House by Aaron Neubert Architects

I’m completely in love with this Sycamore House by Aaron Neubert and his dedicated team of architects, it’s my favourite piece of modern residential architecture that I’ve come across in a long while. Ironically this is mainly because it’s been evolved from the 1950’s building which existing on the site and adapted to incorporate the hillside closer to the home. Throughout the house we see references to the mid-century modern …

Leaf House by Mareines & Patalano Architects

Admittedly this is a rather more elaborate than the architecture we traditionally feature here, in the search for a group of firms I’ve not come across before I found myself admiring this “Leaf House” which has been built by Brazilian architects Mareines & Patalano. I felt this was worth making an exception to the rule however, as the project made me begin to consider the challenges faced by the designers in hotter climates so hopefully it …

Short Film on Russel Wright’s Manitoga

I thought we’d turn our attention to another mid-century master today, so I’ve sourced out this great short film which introduces Russel Wright’s Manitoga home and offers up further context to the American designers life. This project has been put together by women’s retailer Anthropologie, which I thought was a little random but welcome nevertheless as their assistant director of operation Lori Moss talks us though Russel’s beautiful …

Selection of Work by Henning Larsen Architects

I’ve been sniffing around the webpages of the major architectural awards today as I wanted to turn to a real leader in the field for our next post on this topic. My internet travels landed me in Copenhagen with the inspiring body of work from Henning Larsen Architects who were founded back in 1959 by the man himself. Today this collective is responsible for over 160 employees worldwide and last year …

The Hill Country Jacal by Lake Flato Architects

We couldn’t go a whole week without including a slice of architectural inspiration in the format, it just wouldn’t feel right. So I’ve raided the archives of Texas based firm Lake Flato once again presenting this beautiful hill country home which is based upon a Mexican design concept called the Jacal. This type of construction is defined as a lean-to structure which is popular in hotter climates as it allows the flow of air within the build to circulate …
