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.

2015 Design Trends…

…I am pleased to say that my fave color, indigo blue or moody blue, is trending in 2015…herehere, and here.  Smoky glass, geometric tiles, and abstract painterly rugs, will also be featured in fresh designs.  Metals will be mixed.  Remember, however, that you are the trendsetting authority when it comes to your personal space. Let’s take a look…are any of these your favorite elements?

Is indigo absent in your home?  Use art or accessories to introduce the color...

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 at the Office…

Leilani Arita is the maestro of this well orchestrated project…let’s take time out at Thrive Capital in Soho.   The past and present are unified with innovative use of the existing architecture; the red brick, barrel-vaulted ceilings, and steel beams…all balanced by an inventive layout…a relaxed yet elegant seating group.

Attenion, White Knuckles….

…design enlightens and delights…The Centre for Process Innovation has just unveiled an airliner which it hopes will eventually be the future of commercial flight…a windowless plane with a solid fuselage.  Yes, very cool…I suppose…but think of all the white knuckles.

The plane’s walls are ultra thin high definition screens…

Internal tracking cameras will project the image of the plane’s exterior onto the interior walls…giving you a bird’s-eye view of the sky around you.

Quiet, Please…

Kelly Deck Design‘s creative philosophy is inspired by the rugged beauty of the West Coast.  The firm’s creative thinking fashions effortless elegance in homes that are beautiful, balanced, and inviting. Grant, in Vancouver, BC, is a ‘quiet’ haven which demonstrates the strong impact of simplicity…I could settle in quite nicely…
