I love to see architecture in different countries and this interview with Gwen & Gawie Fagan, an architect in South Africa is great. I hope some day I will be able to design my own house and grow old in it. Freunde von Freunden always has some of the best interviews of creative people from around the world.

HelleFlou has done an amazing job with this office interior design for DANSK MODE & TEXTIL. The color palette of grays, whites and pinks with a few black highlights is so soothing and sophisticated. I am also liking the large washed plan flooring. Even the cubicles are pretty cool. I love how in the third picture the guy is wearing the perfect matching outfit.
I was so struck with…really a loss for words as I looked through the works of Vonn Sumner. I love the characters changing personas with a simple prop. Some of my favorites are the works that have a monochromatic feel to them. I would assume that Vonn is living out some of his imagination through his work as most of these subjects look quite similar to himself. I also appreciate the restraint when it come to color blocking and leaving the focus to one subject.
This Asian modern inspired home built in 2004 and designed by Frances Forward is a place I need to live in. Located in the historic city of Winchester, it is 4,000 sq ft of internal space, arranged over three floors. The openness of the main level is quite breath taking. The colors of black, gray, white and stainless moves this home to have a more contemporary feel. The beam construction reminds me of an Asian inspired structure and I could be totally wrong.
These warm modern interiors by Robert Gervais are quite nice. The use of flat paint and subtle color blocking creates a unique style. There are definitely different styles happening in these spaces but the use of a cohesive color pallet pulls the rooms together. I get a sense of a sparseness or minimal feel as the rooms are not clutter but carefully planned with just a few key pieces. Robert Gervais has an amazing style and quite unique in my opinion.
I think I have died and gone to heaven. This concrete home by Correia Ragazzi is a dream get away or house which ever it may work for its owners. The setting is amazing but what the architecture of the house does, it capitalizes on those amazing views. The cantilevered house extends the person even further into its surrounds making the experience that much greater. The walls of sliding glass glass give the viewer a safe place to lounge and observe. I do like the concrete construction, almost a simplified brutalist approach?
