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…
