Constructed in the early 20th century, Eixample is a district of the Spanish city of Barcelona known for the urban planning that divided the district into octagonal blocks. Influenced by a range of schools of architecture, Eixample was designed in a grid pattern with long streets, wide avenues, and rounded street corners. Despite being in the center of a thriving European metropolis, the district provides improved living conditions for inhabitants including extensive sun light, improved ventilation, and more open green space for public use. And of course, the result from the grid-like structure is astounding from above: <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
We have had our eyes on Casa De La Flora for quite some time now, patiently anticipating the first glimpse of the new resort on the sands of Thailand. Leading the VaSLab Architects design team was co-founders Vasu Virajsilp and Boonlert Deeyuen, who worked closely with Casa De La Flora owner Sompong Dowpiset to give a tropical retreat a contemporary and cutting edge perspective. Each villa is complete with a private pool, a small garden, seaside view, and a 24-hour butler service. The layout of the 36 villa resort is designed to provide each guest ample privacy while maximizing their view. VaSLab achieved the balance by designing each villa as a monolithic rectangular frame structure with floor to ceiling glass windows. To provide each guest a scenic view, the villas were then stacked in rows up ascending the hill.
I think one of the reasons that many are skeptical about environmental design is because they think its terribly complex and costly. It does take a bit more effort on the front end, but it's definitely not rocket science. This architecture by Guz Architects is a wonderfully developed minimalistic design with a curvilinear flare that really brings out the organic coverings. I'm most impressed with how design facilitates the needs of the plants and shrubs located throughout the house .
Good things come to those who wait – particularly in a work of uniquely detailed and highly curved architecture. Nearly a decade in the making, this structure by Robert Harvey Oshatz is much like a tree house – lofted toward the top of the canopy around it – only bigger, grander, more complex and curved than most any tree house in the world. The perimeter of the structure is pushed out into the forest around it, curving in and out to create views as well as a sense of intimacy with the coniferous and deciduous tree cover.
what a makeover! this made me feel 'myownapartamentsick' even more than ever :) bulb-lamp is great, i also made something like that, but there were less bulbs so the effect wasn't that stunning. love the shower, look really great, also the brick wall and, what surprised me, that green tone in the bedroom. you had great ideas and you fortunately put them into effect. the one thing i dislike is a study room. i hate that desk and chair, they just so boring actually. but i adore the red wall and those cat-things, sorry, i have no idea how to call it. ;) great job! <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
I found this AMAZING door on weheartit and wish I could some more info on it. Do any of you know its origin? I've never seen anything like it, but I heart it (how appropriate!). Edit: A HUGE thanks to Nay-K for finding us more on this breathtaking Art Nouveau door ! She even found more photos, and now I love it even more.
