Under the Moonlight…

…we’ve had the most beautiful full moon to enjoy the past couple of nights…no wonder I am drawn to the dramatic and generous Under the Moonlight House in Mount Hotham, Australia.  Vividly black metal, glass, and gables, are from the imagination of Giovanni D’Ambrosio

Dream a Little Dream…

…as it gets colder in Chicago, I dream of having a warm climate respite.  Enter ÁBATON, one of my favorite architectural firms, located in Madrid.  ÁBATON has developed the ÁPH80 series as a dwelling ideal for 2 people, easily transported by road, and ready to be placed almost anywhere.

The outside is covered with grey cement wood board…

The use of wood throughout the building not only adds calmness and balance but it is also hypoallergenic. The sourced wood comes from regulated forests…

The herd is optional…in my dream, I would have nubian goats…

Manufacturing time is 6-8 weeks.  Assembly time is a mere 24 hours…ÁBATON magic…

Time Out…

…we are off to a gem of a hotel… Zash in eastern Sicily, in the province of Catania…can you smell the citrus trees?  Rugged and luxe…a treasure…

Zash is described by the hotel as, “a country boutique hotel where historical fragments meet a contemporary taste, in an ‘elegantly quiet’ project, to let nature’s physicality emerge, to respect our past vestige and to satisfy our traveller’s needs. A place which is refined in its rooms, rural in its context and vital for the soul.”
