GYAR Studio Interior

August 16th, 2010

Gyár is a post production studio in Budapest, Hungary. The studio has a team of over 30 people who clearly have a liking for new visual trends/flavors. The interior of the Gyár studio clearly reflects that.

I find this interior particularly stylish and vibrant. It’s really refreshing to see a tasteful color and type rainbow span the walls of this space.

Peter Guthrie

July 15th, 2010

Yes, that’s right. These are all 3D renders. Peter Guthrie is a freelance visualization artist based in Falun, Sweden. From 1995-2000 he studied Architecture at Edinburgh College of Art, then worked for a number of Architect’s Practices including RMJM Ltd. and Richard Murphy Architects in Scotland. His work is among some of most realistic I’ve ever seen in this field. So good in fact that I only found out that the Allandale House images were 3D by digging deeper and coming across Peter’s site.

I often wonder where visualization/3D artists should draw the line when creating super realistic environments or if they should at all. The only reason I say this is because Peter’s work is almost unidentifiable as 3D work.

Can you tell these are renderings?

You can see more of his process by rumbling through his blog.

Robertson House in Pittwater Bay, Australia

June 14th, 2010

The James-Robertson house is located on a hill overlooking Pittwater Bay in Australia. The house is made up of three black coated aluminum and steel structures combined with timber decking. All of the house’s sides are opened up to the outside by large glass windows, creating a sense of naturality.

Portugal Residence

June 7th, 2010

There is something very intriguing about this cantilever home built by Graça Correia e Roberto Ragazzi Architects in Caniçada, Vieira do Minho, Portugal. The ever so simplified interior makes me realize that I should clean up and dispose of some of the objects lying around my own living space. On the same note, I’d really like to see this house stacked with partial floor openings like a loft.

U-House & Office Residence

May 10th, 2010

This beautiful home and office space designed by Natalie Dionne is located in the trendy outskirts of Montreal, Canada. The design of this house features a very clean modern yet urban look through the interior and exterior of the building.

The garage door opens up to connect the tranquility of the garden to the living room space. At night during the summer, the upstairs windows can be opened and the shutters closed to let in a sufficient airflow while not getting wet or affected by the elements. I wish I had this feature in Seattle for the summer.

50s & 60s Interior Design

April 22nd, 2010

Some great images of 1950’s and 1960’s interior design. I think its safe to say that the light and color of these images are probably making it look much better than it may look in person. Regardless, I love the wood tables and walls. Can’t forget the illustration of the Eames chair–the best seat in the house.

This is a remarkable house built in the woods of Karuizawa, Japan and designed by Kotaro Ide. The house is a vacation home (if only they rented this thing out) and was designed to withstand the seasonal hardships. The name, Shell House, is derived from the elliptical shell/wrapper forms which subtly represent a mollusk.

The best part about this house is the woodwork and how the structure meets with the cement all around the house. Speaking of the cement, don’t those wall transitions look awfully nice to skateboard on?

The Rosen Residence was designed by Craig Ellwood Associates for Gerald and Arlene Rosen. The house was constructed in West Los Angeles during the 1960’s. I really like the wood meets modern aesthetic throughout the house. Check out the Eames lounger and ottoman sitting in front of the old style piano.

The Vivienda 19 house is a beautiful house in Pozuelo de Alarcon, Madrid and was designed by A-cero Architects. The garage is located in the basement of the house, while the more important areas of the house such as the living and dining rooms are located on the first floor. All of the bedrooms and private rooms are on the third floor.

Wilt Chamberlain House On The Hill

March 12th, 2010

Until now I had never heard of Wilt Chamberlain the NBA basketball player or this enormous house. After reading a few articles about the house, the most interesting thing aside from the architecture and interior was that it has a groovy feel to it.

“Built in 1971, the five-bedroom, 7,158-square-foot contemporary-style house at 15216 Antelo Place in Bel-Air was built by Chamberlain, who lived there until his death in 1999. TV writers George Meyer and Maria Semple purchased the house from Chamberlain’s estate in 2002 for nearly $3 million, and have owned it ever since. The house has attracted much attention over the years–both with this listing and in 2000-2002, when Chamberlain’s estate was trying to unload it, first for $7.45 million and later reducing its asking price to $4.38 million. The house’s unconventional features include a gold-lined hot tub, a retractable mirrored ceiling above the master bed, a swimming pool that flows into the living room, walls of glass, 40-foot ceilings, a wrap-around pool, and a balcony suspended over the living room. Other features include five and a half baths and teak finishes.

The house sits on a 2.58-acre parcel that has ocean and city views.”

Murdock Young + Cutler Residence

The Cutler Residence was designed by Murdock-Young Architects and is located in Montauk, New York. The residence is a beautiful combination of wood paneling, concrete and dark metal helping it showcase its elegance.

It’s always interesting to know the client’s requirements for their home. In this case, the client requested that Murdock-Young design a house with a very minimal impact on the surrounding landscape and to maximize the views. Judging by the photos and open view, I think it’s safe to say that the view at sunset is nothing short of amazing.

Arthur Erickson was an architect whose works reflect an appealing Pacific Northwest modernist theme. Some of his works include The Museum of Anthropology at the University of British Columbia, the Provincial Law Courts in Downtown Vancouver, the San Diego Convention Center, Napp Laboratories in Cambridge, England, the Canadian Chancery in Washington, D.C., California Plaza in Los Angeles, and most recently the Museum of Glass in Tacoma, Washington.

The way he put different aspects of nature into his designs is inspiring. Bringing in certain elements such as the beam and post construction, variations of floor planes, the surrounding topography, viewing perspectives and light control. You can see it in each of the above images and his other works.
