Wee Studio completes crowdfunded treehouses next to a stream in Beijing

Designed by local micro-architecture specialists Wee Studio, the tiny huts have a combined floor area of just 8 square metres. They host a tearoom, a bedroom and bathroom, and are set on either side of a wooden deck facing a stream. The walls and pointy roofs of the structures are clad in lengths of recycled timber to help them blend with their woodland setting. The project, named The Treehouse, has no clients and was completely financed through internet crowdfunding – a public funding method growing in popularity among architects and designers.

"The building of Treehouse is about the subtle relationship between nature and inhabitation, as well as an exploration about how to achieve architecture in the era of internet," explained the studio.

Doll’s House: Sustainable Addition That Celebrates Adaptability! Drawing inspiration from a dollhouse to create a beautiful, modern extension for a traditional home does sound intriguing and a touch far-fetched.

Doll’s House: Sustainable Addition That Celebrates Adaptability!

But this is precisely what the imaginative folks from BKK Architects pulled off with the gorgeous Doll’s House in Northcote, Victoria, Australia. The new rear addition to an existing home was modelled on the design flexibility and simplicity of the classic dollhouse where partitions between rooms are often arbitrary and one room can be turned into another by simply swapping the décor! View in gallery This sparkling contemporary addition opens up towards the rear yard, thanks to the use of large glass windows, and its simple wooden structure seems both modern and elegant. On the inside, the conventional presence of walls and doors is done away with and it is large shelves, wooden partitions and décor that delineate and define spaces.

Liked the story? How I made the Miniature Mouse Tree House. I started with a lot of MDF – I cut the pieces and whilst I was cutting them, my twins drew pictures on them to “help” .

Dollhouse. • Lay out the lines for the dados and cut them on the table saw. • Cut the five pieces (B, C) that form the support for the floor ensuring that they are exactly flush with the edges of the main floor. • Using glue and a crown nailer, fasten the foundation pieces to the underside of the floor, ensuring that the center piece does not cover up the dado.


Glue and nail the ends of the sides, and use wood filler to fill any holes left by the nailer. • After the glue has cured, sand the edges and top of the foundation. Walls As this part of the project progresses, use a pin nailer to tack the pieces together in the proper orientation and confirm the actual size of every piece in place before cutting. . • Cut the left (D) front (E) and right (F) outside walls to size, leaving the tops square for now. 30 coins lecture pour s'évader de ce monde - 2Tout2Rien.

Jan 7, 2016 | By Kira Stelios Mousarris is a Greece-based designer and 3D modeling artist whose aesthetic intention is to surprise his audience, combining dramatically different elements into visually simple yet powerful pieces of furniture.

His most recent work, the Wave City Coffee Table, utilized 3D printing technology to merge natural with unnatural materials, organic and manmade shapes, creating a mind-bending wooden table that looks like something straight out of the movie Inception. The Wave City Coffee Table has been making the Internet rounds this week, re-dubbed by many as the “Inception Table,” as it does indeed resemble a particularly physics-defying scene from the blockbuster hit, in which a city street actually folds up and over itself.

Live, Work, Play: WeLive’s Live-Work Spaces Reveal a “Third Place” Pop-up artists' studios attempt to combat unaffordable rents. London Festival of Architecture 2016: architects Tomaso Boano and Jonas Prišmontas have created a small pop-up studio to raise awareness of how London's unaffordable rents and education is crippling its creative industries (+ slideshow).

Boano and Prišmontas sought to question whether London will still be a capital of art and design in 10 years time, as the cost of studios for both businesses and individuals rises. Their simple structure is intended as a model for what the affordable studio of the future might look like. "London has always represented a hub for creative minds but recently these financial pressures have turned 'creativity' into an industry that can only be joined by people who are able to afford an education and pay the rent without a fixed work income," said the pair.

"We believe that creativity should not be linked to a social status," they added. The London Festival of Architecture has been running for the whole of June across the capital, but finishes today.
