Ladder Designed by Charlie Styrbjörn Nilsson for Gebrüder Thonet Vienna

Charlie Styrbjörn Nilsson designed a ladder from a bent wood.

“With Ladder, Charlie Styrbjörn Nilsson uses the steam bent wood technique to create an interior ladder in which the solidity of the solid wood gives rise to a slender, light structure where the rungs, characterized by a rounded contour on one side, follow each other in a symmetrical manner and define the direction of ascent. Ladder is a versatile complement, capable of reinventing space with its unexpected presence, lending itself to multiple uses both in the living and in the sleep area”.

Skidmore Passivhaus – Energy Efficiency Home by In Situ Architecture

This eco friendly house located in Portland, Oregon design by In Situ Architecture firm.

“Located in an existing neighborhood of post-war houses, Skidmore Passivhaus merges contemporary design with the highest level of energy efficiency. Providing a true live / work condition, two separate buildings address the program requirements while creating a unique indoor / outdoor space between. High levels of insulation, extremely airtight construction (tested at .32ach50), high performing triple glazed european windows, and a super-efficient heat recovery ventilator allow the structure to meet the stringent requirements of the German Passivhaus standard. Generous amounts of south facing glazing (.5 shgc) maximize the solar gains for most of the year, while motorized exterior aluminum shades can be lowered to block unwanted summer heat gain resulting in extremely comfortable temperatures year round. An extensive green roof helps manage all stormwater on site, while a roof mounted 4.32 kW PV array provides enough electricity to result in a near net zero and truly sustainable building”.

Humour Photography by Sandro Giordano

Captures the downfall of people in a crazy and colorful pictures by Italian photographer Sandro Giordano.
His ongoing photographic project ‘in extremis (bodies with no regret)’, Italian photographer Sandro Giordano captures the downfall of people — literally. Face plants, falling, belly flops and drops are the subject of the series, with men and women head-first into the ground, their belongings strewn around them in the inevitable mess, “my photographs are short stories about a falling-down world” Giordano describes “each shot tells about worn out characters who, as if a sudden black-out of mind and body took over, let themselves crash with no attempt to save themselves, unable, because of the fatigue of the everyday representation of living, oppressed by appearance instead of simply existing”.

Modern House by Coop 15

Situated in the Sand Point Country Club neighborhood in Seattle, Washington, this contemporary residence was designed for a family of five by Coop 15.

Construction is winding down on our new design on NE Sunrise Vista, in the Sand Point Country Club neighborhood. Though we did manage to salvage a few critical elements of the original 1950′s home on this property, it is, fundamentally, a new house.

Our collaborators include interior design consultant Kathleen Glossa, landscape architect Martha Shapiro, and contractor Stuart Feldt of W. S. Feldt Contruction–and our terrific clients.

Designed for a family of five, the main floor has a large living room for entertaining, a great room with kitchen, dining, and family area, three childrens’ bedrooms and baths, and a laundry room. The master suite is on the second floor, with views of Mount Rainier and a glimpse of Lake Washington. There are his and hers home offices (his upstairs, hers on the main), and a basement with media/playroom, guest suite, exercise room, and storage spaces.

The carport tucked under the main level is an idea preserved from the original home, eliminating the look of a big garage door that often dominates the front of homes where there is no alley access. The basement foundation walls were also retained, as were two indoor fireplaces, and a unique outdoor fireplace/barbeque.

The kitchen and family areas are the star of this house, with large sliding glass doors disappearing into pockets, allowing these spaces to flow to the south terrace. (via)

Stunning Villa in Belgium

Ideally located in the district of Prince Orange, at the edge of the Sonian Forest, magnificent contemporary style property of about 1,100 m² (11,836 ft²), built by the Durce office on a plot of 25 acres.

The reception area is composed of several lounges, open fireplace, a dining room connected to a functional “open bar” kitchen itself opening onto a large terrace on the waterfront.

Modern Lighting : Swirl by Le Klint

Even with a clear reference to the classic design and craftsmanship of LE KLINT, SWIRL is something new. The transparency and shape of the lamp with it´s spiral panels disperses light suitable for all lighting needs while the lamp itself becomes aesthetically pleasurable in the room.

The beautiful closure at the bottom of the lamp also makes it ideal to hang high in any room. SWIRL was designed with the intention to prevent unpleasent glare from the light source.
