United Nations North Delegates' Lounge by Hella Jongerius and Rem Koolhaas Designer Hella Jongerius and architect Rem Koolhaas have renovated the North Delegates' Lounge at the United Nations buildings in New York (+ slideshow). Working alongside a team of Dutch creatives that included graphic designer Irma Boom, artist Gabriel Lester and theorist Louise Schouwenberg, Jongerius and Koolhaas have reconfigured the layout and added new furniture to the lounge - one of the key spaces in the complex designed during the 1960s by a team of architects including Le Corbusier and Oscar Niemeyer. Koolhaas' OMA began by removing a mezzanine that had been added in 1978, opening up a view towards the East River. Hella Jongerius then added a bead curtain made from hand-knotted yarn and 30,000 porcelain beads. Furniture is arranged so that one end of the lounge accommodates formal meetings and the other is more suited to coffee and drinks.

Custom Tree House Plans, DIY Ideas & Building Designs No, really: would you want to design, build and live in an real fantasy tree house all year round? More and more people have decided to do just that and where treehouses were once novelty architecture for kids they are now (almost) mainstream structures, as attested to by the pictures above via Bella Seven. Many modern tree house designs and home designers and custom builders take a site-specific approach and construct their tree buildings around not only views and rooms but also have to account for access and structural support in unique and novel ways.
RAMO Branch Multi-Tap by Eunsung Kwon (Enzo) Powerful Branches The Ramo Branch Multi Tap is a dramatic representation of power consumption and how gadget-dependent we are. It looks more artistic than practical and can literally grow to branch out by simply fitting in modular socket stubs. The tree may look good but I won’t promise beauty in the ensuing wiring chaos. Designer: Eunsung Kwon (Enzo) The Snow by Tokujin Yoshioka Feathers fly around this 15 metre-long tank installed by Japanese designer Tokujin Yoshioka at the Mori Art Museum in Tokyo. Called The Snow, the installation is part of an exhibition called Sensing Nature that continues until 7 November.

This shoe is the result from a collaboration between renowned architect Zaha Hadid and Brazilian fashion label Melissa. As with any Zaha Hadid design, the sweeping conundrums are rightly apparent and I hate it. It took Hadid 2 years to come up with this? Frame House by Jonathan Tuckey Design British studio Jonathan Tuckey Design has added skeletal partitions and skylights to bring more light into this renovated west London mews house. Jonathan Tuckey Design renovated the Grade II-listed building for a private client and his dog, creating a two-storey home with a combined living and dining room on the first floor. The planning authorities were reluctant to let the architects design an open-plan layout for the space, so they instead added see-through stud walls that follow the exact footprint of the original interior. "We negotiated a difficult planning process in order to achieve this aesthetic in the Frame House," architect Nic Howett told Dezeen.
