Victorian Organ Command Desk & Steampunk Home Tour

During that visit Bruce showed me a partially finished project that I decided really needed a story of it's own when it was completed This is the "Victorian Organ Command Desk" that Bruce commissioned. It's made from bits and pieces of Victorian detritus that Bruce had collected including the carcass of a 19th century pump organ. All of the major components are in fact authentic Victorian antiques, period reproductions, or salvaged items. You'll note the organ pipes mounted on the wall behind the console.

Solar-Powered Glass Road Could Melt Snow Automatically - It’s being called snowmageddon – and for good reason. Snow and ice are wreaking havoc all across the United States with record wind chills and more precipitation than Siberia on a bad day. If your commute is taking three times as long as it usually does, go ahead and blame the archaic highway system. That’s right. In the 1950s, the idea of paving America with black asphalt seemed like a good idea. UnTime Clock Concept by Pushkar Ingale & Yanko Design. Pouring Light Lamp by Yeongwoo Kim & Yanko Design.

Pour Me Some Light Human actions play such a significant role in design; it’s either evident in the form or in the function.

Get ready! Modern New Home in Old Stone Church. From the outside it appears to be just the same as any other unassuming old church, however take a look inside and this place of worship has been turned into an ultra modern family home. Based in Utrecht, this small-church renovation features a series of levels within the existing large and awe inspiring space.

The mezzanine represents a partial reversion from the building’s last design iteration, and (as the plans above show) is less intrusive than it might appear. Underneath the upper floor mezzanine lie the bathrooms, bedrooms and a personal study, which provides the churchs inhabitants with privacy. None of these newly-created rooms, however, would be difficult to remove should anyone seek to fully restore the space at some point.
