I really like this house by Path Architecture. Really nice work.
All these clean-lined timber and concrete spaces can get a little earnest at times. Here’s a place to indulge all your senses. I absolutely love it! This is the Marquess of Bute’s home, Mount Stuart, in Scotland. I’d love to see Ruth Asawa’s sculptures in here…Via W.
An extraordinary glass, timber and concrete home in Japan. Designed by Suppose. Via Yatzer.
This photographer can do no wrong in my eyes. Selby is in Sydney right now and has shot a bunch of cool Sydneysiders’ homes and offices. Here is Ksubi’s George Gorrow is his office. Makes me want to go knock a hole in a wall. Doors? Who needs them. Shame we’re renting.
Last year I interviewed the Campana brothers for Belle. We talked a lot about Brazil and their lives there. They were planning on building a summer house/weekender using shipping containers. I loved the idea but haven’t found anything about it since. I did come across IC – a Californian company that makes structures from recycled shipping containers. It’s not a new idea but they’ve finessed it nicely.
I just finished Loving Frank – what an amazing read. Journalist Nancy Horan manages to get inside not just Frank Lloyd Wright’s head but also Mamah Borthwick – the woman he loved. I wont give away too much – just be prepared for a major twist at the end. I was reading the book as Wright’s beautiful Ennis house in Los Angeles came onto the market. I had driven past this masterpiece inspired by Mayan architecture a few years ago and it was in need of a lot of love. The FLW Foundation has spent millions restoring it and it is now on the market for around $15 million. It’s one of those amazing opportunities – like the sale of the Kaufmann house in Palm Springs. Just wish I had a lazy $15 mill floating around!
Great house right up in the leafy green. It is home to architect Ellen Cassilly and Frank Konhaus in Durham, NC. Via New York Times.
This green oasis in Paris is amazing. By R&Sie Architects. Via Materialicious.
Looking for a summer rental? Designer Piet Boon‘s place on the island of Bonaire in the Dutch Carribean is for rent. From $8500 a week and that includes a bottle of champagne on arrival. Wonder what kind of champagne Piet Boon serves…
Their path’s may not have crossed on the big screen but rumour (via Daily Intel) has it that SJP is looking at Connelly’s amazing home in Brooklyn. Check out more pics at Curbed.
