My first week of my final year at school is almost finished. It's good to be back but the pressure is strong, no jokes this year. We changed some teachers in few subjects and luckily they all seem very professional, time will only tell if that's true. In English we have, for example, a new teacher with an extremely good pronunciation! He's our 9th teacher in only four years, can you imagine? No wonder we joke about how that job has been damned just like the Defense Against Dark Arts subject in Harry Potter, ha. So.. I was thinking about how it's time to bring back a little bit of design and architecture in this blog and so I will post some photos of my last year's work as soon as I take my camera to school. In the meanwhile here's a bunch of random inspiring eye candy on the subject. Hopefully I'll have the time to write soon so take care!
I usually don't like it when the interiors are entirely made out of wood but in this case the right illumination really makes the difference.
Even though I love big windows I still could not imagine myself living in a house like this.. This solution is clever and a must for those who, like me, do not like the idea of being observed by someone in the bush, late at night... :D
First I didn't like the picture on the right but now I'm really thrilled with this marble-wall solution. As I do think a window near working-space is much better, I'm not that convinced about the desk's collocation as the massiveness of the wall could not affect positively on one's celebral activity and concentration. Anyhow I would definitely use this solution in some other circumstance! Note how the lightening makes the marble look much less cold, it almost looks organic. Doesn't it remind you of Jupiter's surface?
The illumination is perfect in this house- look how the light just glows inside thanks to the right positioning and planning of the house.
This is another typical Scandinavian modern summer house. I love the different combination of different material in architecture.
All pictures (almost) taken from the site called Trendir.com, check it out, it's one of the best in my personal opinion.
PS! Are you actually interested in seeing more architecture and design related posts on CN?
