Checking In At the Office…

Jingyuan No.22 project by C+ Architecture, Beijing, transforms an old cotton warehouse into an internet company.  A fresh, light, and bright space…now promotes ideas to whirl freely and allows immediate access to communicating with co-workers.  A tension-breaking slide or a climbing-to-new-heights staircase brings out the best in everyone. There is even a convenient space to park your wheels…artistically photographed by Xia Zhi.

The Barn…

…a very special heritage renovation project in Hobart, Australia.  The Barn belongs to architects Alex Nielsen and Liz Walsh. Attracted to the 1829 structure’s raw space and its rough and ready texture, the talented architects created a cozy and exceedingly charming space in which to reside.

Simple is Beautiful and Less is More…

…Polish designer, Agata Bieleń, has created a tranquil beauty with her stunning Arch Line Collection for Spring Summer 2015.  The intentional gentleness, liquidity, and relief for the senses is both beautiful and bold with reassured confidence. Each form is handcrafted of stainless steel, silver or gold with the utmost attention towards detail; following the idea that simple is beautiful and less is more.  Photography by Marta Zgierska, Michał Matejko, and Mchy Porosty.

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.”
