V Houses at Verana | Been-Seen There are many ways to build employee quarters, temporary housing for those who decide to come work for a season at Verana. This summer we decided to build some additional housing and the images here show you what we came up with. V-houses at V-erana. The idea to build those ‘outlooks’ came from Jo Scheer who had build his ‘hoochs’ in Puerto Rico and Oregon. With 16’ off the ground they also created an instant spectacular view where there normally wouldn’t be one. For privacy reasons we spaced all ‘rooms’ about 18’ apart. And, once we had figured out how to build the first one, all others were just a repetition. The houses are self contained. Go here if you are interested in some construction images or send us an email if you would like more details about the project. We have been so encouraged by the outcome that we are now thinking of building a few more. 2008 Jan 31 6 responses. share this Back to articles
Inner Child: Colorful Home has Trap Doors & Secret Slides If kids could design and build whole homes, what would they look like? This so-called Rainbow House is filled with secret doors, slides that bridge between floors and multi-colored spiral staircases to wind you back up. Chutes and ladders, anyone? Dubbed a “magical oasis’ by its creators (AB Rogers and DA Studio, the busy and noisy road next to the building is matched by equally rambunctious and interactive interior decor. Stepping in off the street is a lot like walking into a fantasy looking glass or wardrobe portal. An over-sized sofa on the main floor ? Amidst the gleeful madness, though, there is much reason alongside rhyme – minimalist fixtures and functional cooking spaces are animated by their surroundings, but remain modern and somehow adult despite their setting.

Ezzo Design - Totul despre Design de Interior Lofted Forest Home: Organic Curves & Natural Materials 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. The wood and metal detailing is incredible in its variety and customization – each piece designed to fit a particular form and function. Wood and stone carry naturalistic themes from the outside in and even the metal looks naturally rusted. The curved, organic mix of materials continues to the interior of this elevated forest home – a conceptual play on the fluidity and complexity of music (the source of inspiration for the architect and client in the design).
some people are just born with it « style/SWOON this house was love at first foot in the door… Jamie Laubhan-Oliver and her husband Larry Oliver are two of the most talented people I’ve ever known. Jamie is an art director for DHome/DWeddings and Larry is a senior designer for Neiman Marcus. They are both art directors and spend much of their days orchestrating amazing photoshoots. Each detail of their home is so interesting: from the alligator skull, to the collection of keys from Jamie’s father mixed with the heap of wine corks, and an armless baby doll. Don’t get me wrong…these two have got their fair share of Jonathan Adler and other notable fancies by their ability to mix it all up so well is a gift. I have to tell you that one of the other endearing qualities about this couple is their peculiar side. Last cool tidbit, the ceramic phonograph in the middle photo hooks up to your earbuds from your iPod. This is my kind of interior — a collection of details and pieces you love. Thank you Jamie and Larry!!
eliinbar From Eliinbar’s Sketch book 2012 – The mutual inspirational relations between west and east My inspiration for this post are Simona Rota’s photographs, published in WALLPAPER on “Soviet Modernism”. Unknown Stories”!! Thank you Simona…. From Simona Rota’s introduction to her photographs published in WALLPAPER, I learned that the Soviet modern architecture of the second half of the 20th century has remained practically unknown to date. Come and join me to a short journey uncovering the mutual inspirational relations, between the “Soviet Modernism” architecture, built in the second half of the 20th century and western architecture, built in the last two decades, At this point, I do not understand how these mutual inspirational relations were created…. First , I will focus on the west getting inspired from the “Soviet Modernism”…. In my next post I will show how the “Soviet Modernism” is getting inspired from “Western Architecture” ….
