These architectural renderings by Adam Spychała are not your typical run of the mill drawings. I typically do not post pictures of renderings because I like to look at the real thing but these are quite imaginative. I really like the concrete structures in their extreme angular lines. They have a strong brutalism feel wile being a unique geometric structure. These are only a few of his designs, make sure to click over to see all of them, he is quite talented.
This creative workspace by DeBartolo Architects for VSCO is a wonderful juxtaposition of industrial meets mid century. I like the explanation of the architect in the video. He basically states that he took the structure down to its raw elements and knew that what ever he put inside would need to be important. Keeping it wide open he partitioned off spaces using glass. Obviously there are some great pieces of furniture that bring the environment forward.
Rhei – The Liquid Clock. Typically I don’t post about a single product but this piece of art is a stunning accomplishment. If you haven’t seen it yet you must watch the video. “Rhei is a prototype of an electro-mechanical clock with a liquid display, and the result of a year long passion project, created by Damjan Stanković, executed in collaboration with Marko Pavlović and many other wonderful people.”
This pool house by Steven Vandenborre is a place I would like to be right now. The white clean minimal boxes with the blue tinted glass is such a wonderful thing to look at. I certainly would not mind what is the garage either. Those walls of glass appear to open wide multiplying living space. To build a home like this I am sure it is in a mild climate. This project was completed in 2009, it just goes to show that clean modern design can live forever.
This Barbican Estate apartment is the finest achievement of the architects Chamberlin, Powell & Bon. It was Grade II-listed in 2001 in recognition of its extraordinary contribution to London’s urban landscape. The spaces are small but I love the layout and the prices chosen. The complex itself is quite impressive. The inside feels 100% mid century while the exterior is leaning a little more brutalist. I think it would be a great place to live if you were to be in an apartment.
This refurbished beach house by Andy Martin Architects is a stunning example of color and texture. I am a big fan of Andy Martin work so I was excited to see a new project. This edwardian home in west London received a modern addition to the back of the home providing wide open public spaces. The rest of the original home was kept as private areas. I like how each area of the home has some what of its own personality. The use of color and texture are fun but very sophisticated.
