    Villa E in Morocco by Studio KO.

    23rd July

    Sitting at the peak of a hill in the Moroccan mountain ranges, Villa E rises up from the landscape, like a form extruded from the earth. The locally sourced Oika stone walling reads like an extension of the landscape. From the road in the valley, only the tiniest window openings pierce through the structure, veiling the life that occurs inside. Hidden within is a private mountain retreat by Studio KO. With studio bases in both Paris and Morocco, Villa E represents the convergence of ideas from both design cultures. Studio KO weave together the contemporary minimalism of Paris with the earthy textures of the Moroccan aesthetic.



    ‘House for Mother’ by FAF // Linköping, Sweden.

    18th July

    This beautiful house-to-be is designed by Malmö-based architecture studio Förstberg Arkitektur (FAF). That’s right people – you are looking at extremely realistic and super beautiful 3D renderings of “House for mother”. Insane. In the membrane. This work-in-progress residence is located on a 325sqm site in the Southern Swedish city of Linköping. Built for the Linköpingsbo 2017 home exhibition, the house is divided into two parallel structures slightly shifted from each other, creating spaces both in front of and behind the building. Oriented to the park in the north and the alley in the south, “House for Mother” is a reflection of it’s neighbourhood plan, which incorporates a variety of housing types into relatively small blocks of land.

In his lifetime he created more than 500 buildings, continuing to work until shortly before his death in 2012. In the sprit of Brazil week, today we celebrate some of Oscar Niemeyer’s most beautiful and iconic modernist buildings from around the world.



    Brazil Week // Round-up of Smokin’ Hot Brazilian Architecture, Part I.

    7th July

    We know, we know – every freaking design blog and website out there seems to be rounding up Brazilian Architecture because of The FIFA World Cup 2014 currently in it’s finals week in Brazil. Ours is a little late because it took just a liiiiitle bit of research. You see, we wanted to dig a little deeper into the amazing design and architecture, both historic and current, and bring you a whole week of awesome Brazil related content. I guess you could say we are literally giving you The Full Brazilian all week. Ouch! Except this one won’t hurt, and it’s completely appropriate for all age groups.
