The Herne Bay House by Stevens Lawson Architects has some outstanding architectural elements. The three diminutional triangle pattern is one of the coolest designs I have seen applied to a private residence. I also like the smaller horizontal stacked brick found on the interiors and exteriors. The massive black pivoting door is a nice touch. Some day I need to visit New Zealand.
DIM Lighting Atelier has some stunning, one of a kind lighting fixtures. I admire that these pieces are created out of other industrial waste so to speak. If you click through to the site you will some amazing details found on different parts of the lighting. Sculpture would be another definition of the creations, art that happens to provide light.
DIM is an independent atelier devoted to the design of unique and limited edition lighting fixtures. It is a place where the passion for art, functional design, and craftsmanship come together to create exclusive lighting objects. Each unique piece in the collection is meticulously handcrafted from salvaged vintage or antique metal objects.
The Erby House by Devine Erby Mazlin located in Sydney Australia is a rare gem. Built in 1971 the home retains most of its mid century design charm. I like the horizontal running wood on the interiors, it almost acts like a guide showing one “around the house”. Not to sound negative what so ever but I do think there is one too many textures going on: brick, wood walls different wood ceilings and the wood built in cabinets with all three woods being different. There are more images, all of the details on the home, architect and area on Modern House.
Allens Rivulet House by Room 11 sits on a scenic slope in Tasmania. The wooded tunnel style entrance to the house is quote an amazing. The atrium or court yard is an element that I hope to have in my home some day. The feeling of the outside being in the middle of your home would be a dream design element. The choice of materials has lent the home it’s stunning color palette. I wonder if this is a faction or second home?
This minimal house by Dorrington Atcheson Architects is so clean lined. I have always been drawn to flat roofed houses that consisted of geometric box shaped levels. The floor plan of this house is so open, even the bedroom doors/walls open up to create larger living spaces. Even the shower with all of its walls of glass gives the feeling of now walls or boundaries.
These abstract Paintings by Artist Boski Sztuka are inspired by the stylings of some mid century artists but I feel that Boski has an amazing style all his own. “Butch” as he is called by his friends has created some landscapes that are so full of color, texture and shape one could see something new every day. This sampling of images is just a handful of his work. I want to know where we can buy some of these works.
“I don’t call myself an artist. That designation seems best assigned by academics, critics, and marketing departments. I’m a craftsman. A proud craftsman who makes things out of paint and canvas. I happen to think that they’re decorative things, and it’s turned out that at least a few other people think so, too.”
