On the Pacific…

…Architectural geometry and photography go hand in hand, as portrayed in the exemplary project by ANDO Corporation known as “Rooms.” This fabulous contemporary residence rises in Wakayama, Japan and occupies 288 square meters – enough space to become an airy, minimalist cluster of rooms perfect for living an uncomplicated lifestyle.

Surrounded by lush vegetation gently sloping down the hillside, the white volumetric residence benefits from a spectacular play of geometry in the front garden leading inside to the brightly lit spaces. Overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the modern home seems to defy its surroundings with an imposing shape while visually connecting with it from different vantage points at the same time. Interior spaces are split into separate blocks connected by a terrace and a covered walkway, ending with an oceanview pool that completes this minimalist dream home.

Darn, I Like This…

…I have a personal bias when I see “too much” wood in a space.  It can get in my way…especially oak.  But darn, I like this…I find this heavy use of wood visually appealing, warm, and modern.  Kudos to Mabbott Seidel Architecture in New York for helping me see custom millwork in a new light…particulary when combined with concrete and brick…and placed in outstanding projects nestled along the Hudson River…

Once Upon a Time…

…a striking artist’s studio loomed atop a rocky beach.  The only way it could be reached was by hiking along the shore.  The floors of the structure rotated, giving the studio a playful and unique geometry.  The studio brought inspiration to any artist lucky enough to reside there…

The Norwegian based firm Saunders Architecture has completed a series of cabin-like artists’ studios on the lovely island of Fogo in Canada. The studios house artists participating in the Fogo Island Arts Corporation’s residency program. Tower Studio is one these stunning residences.
