The artists are mad, that’s for sure. What you’ll see today is part wood carving that has been popular from ancient times and is even fresh now. A skill that infers that artisans have to be equipped with certain tools that will help them in carving the block of wood. Birds and animals stand still looking at you!

Designed by Baurmann.durr Architekten, this house is located in the Karlsruhe Geiger Mountain area and it extends over four levels following the topography of the site. From outside, only two volumes appear visible. The architects used large glass facades that alternate with wall panels of dark brick. In a nutshell, natural materials and a rigorous design provide the framework for the lively family life of the residents.

The Ski-lift Carmenna located in Arosa, Switzerland was designed by Bearth & Deplazes. The roof of the station has multiple angles and spans from the ground up, over the large garage and the entrance and exit of the cable lift. Its shape integrates the station into its environments – in winter it is completely covered in snow  and in summer overgrown by grass – as if the lift is part of the mountain.

No doubt designers nowadays use different methods to make your loft more attractive. I would say there is no way to guess what technique they have to beautify a place. Take this loft, for example. It has modern, disparate  pieces of furniture, taken from different ensembles that recover a new interaction glued together. Meanwhile, the designer let a lot of space unveiled, unvarnished and uncovered to maximize the feeling of an austere place. via owi.bz

If I think of the Perfect Winter Home, this Aspen Mountain Cabana – owned by Cosmetic Goddess Aerin Lauder – is what comes to mind. The Alpine freshness of this interior is just amazing! The neutral tones and mix of materials are so refreshing and perfectly balanced throughout the property. I  really love these crisp whites, cozy sofas and a lot of warm wood. The gorgeous furniture gives this home a true elegance. Who needs wallpaper, or any wall art when you […]

Yes, it works!  The designer, Ron Arad made a bicycle that has two ‘steel flowers’ instead of wheels. He bent sheets of steel into such a tizzy they now form two functional bike tires. Arad’s studio says the ride is pretty smooth — despite the gap in the tires design — and the faster you go the better it feels!

The private residence stands on a steep slope in Kitzbühel in Austria. The architects at Hamburg’s Splendid Architecture designed the residence, a luxurious villa with a very high-grade interior. The complete outside of the building is covered with planks of old Tyrolian wood that in part jut out over the openings in the façade. In this way, the view inside from the outside and vice versa is impeded in some areas, such as the sauna, more strongly than in the […]

  This week saw the 19th International Robot Exhibition (IREX) held at Tokyo Big Sight displaying the world’s most advanced, innovative and sometimes plain bizarre robots. A robotic pillow like device in the shape of a polar bear that looks at helping the more than 2million patients who suffer “Sleep Apnea Syndrome” in Japan (those who suffer breathing difficulties while sleeping…chronic snorers!). It  looks comfy. So comfy, in fact, that you’re supposed to fall asleep on him. But you’d better […]

What we present you today has a lot in common with solid masses that become more flexible when letting outside environment inside. It’s a house realized few years ago by a Romanian architectural studio in Bucharest, b23t. My first impression was of some rectangular volumes, pilled one on another in order to create a continuous, simple  facade. The architects used large windows that offer generous views to exterior environment.

Roman Leonidov  presents us a private house situated on a site of 30ha in a very quiet and old neighborhood along Minsk highway. The architect wanted to make for his client a modern country house that would combine both tradition and innovation harmoniously. For facades and interior, the architect used  natural and cost-effective materials to balance solidity of the exterior and its visual lightness, as well as to make the construction cost efficient.

Macy Architecture made a house having in mind natural ventilation design principles. The interior is naturally ventilated through the central atrium and clerestory windows. The form of the house is quite simple and it minimizes the exterior surface area, increasing the thermal performance, reducing the electrical and plumbing runs. The living, dining, kitchen and master bedroom are located on the upper level oriented to capture views of the Pacific Ocean and Mission Bay.

Most of us spend between 6 and 10 hours sleeping every day, and over the course of a lifetime, those hours really add up.  Many people love sleep, and why use just a plain, traditional pillow?  Designers came up with a variety of pillows that are not necessary useful for sleeping, but they can become lovely sitting pieces of furniture when too many guests are invited to the party! via  woouf.com
