Yes, Please…

…the weather in Chicago has been ungodly for a few weeks now.  Signs of spring have been slow to arrive.  So what is one to do?  Dream of green, of course…yes, please!

Time Out…

…let’s hop over to Fire Island, NY, where an ordinary 1960’s a-frame has been renovated by Bromley Caldari Architects. The A-Frame Rethink has been transformed from underwhelming and decrepit to a “cathedral that is light-filled with the color of sky and water, complex but simple, where the pieces lock into place like a Rubik’s cube.”

Breath of Fresh Air…

…during a long Chicago winter, it can seem as if the four walls of your home are closing in on you.  No chance of this happening near Stockholm, Sweden, where Arrhov Frick Arkitektkontor designed Six Walls House.  The architects gave the homeowner two extra walls plus floor to ceiling windows, which allow an abundance of light even on the gloomiest of days.  The home’s location gives generous views of the sea and surrounding nature…giving a feeling of serenity…a breath of fresh air…

Iridescent…

…designed as a living organism in constant interaction with its environment…Butterfly House by Hong Kong based design team, Davidclovers.  The guest house is conceived as a preternatural, brilliantly colored form that oscillates between sheer camouflage and sparkling beacon with the northeastern Pennsylvanian woods.

the roof bows upwards and towards the north, embodying the butterfly’s flapping motion….poetic…

I belong in the guest house…and I’ll be staying all summer, thank you.

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…
