The Alchemist…

…there are not enough adjectives to describe the work of the Belgian seer of beauty, Axel Vervoordt. “My style is more than it looks,” Vervoordt says. Indeed, his statement is true.  His vision is to inspire artists and audiences through discovering and transmitting the beautiful, with a deep respect for everything that is authentic.

Reiulf Ramstad Architects: At Work…

…today we are at work with RRA Studio in a renovated 19th century villa in Josefines gate 7, near Bislett in Oslo.  The office has been renovated to modern standards while retaining and displaying the character of building. A glass floor between the entry level and the workspaces provides a spatial connection between each floor and exposes the beautiful timber construction.

Reiulf Ramstad Architects: At Home…

Reiulf Ramstad Architects (RRA) is an independent Oslo-based architectural firm with a high level of expert knowledge and a distinct ideology. I have been an admirer for quite a long time.  Over the years RRA has produced a wide range of innovative and ground breaking projects with an exceptional variation of scale and program.  Over the next several days, I plan to show you glimpses of RRA’s extensive portfolio. I’m sure you will recognize many of your favorites, as well as be delighted by  projects you are not as familiar with…let’s begin with a few residential projects…

Time Out…

…giddy up!  We are heading to Mexico for horseback riding, rest, and relaxation.  Our horses are waiting for us at El Mirador House.  One of the necessary elements for a dream house of my own is a space which I can easily share with nature’s bounty of docile animals…horses, goats, sheep…and, of course, dogs.  El Mirador House fits this requirement seamlessly…a forest respite created by CC Arquitectos.

The structure is a combination of steel and wooden beams, and the retaining walls are made out of stones from the area…
