Sometimes I want to run away to a calmer life, a simpler house, less possessions, a safe harbour in a storm, to a house perched on a hill surrounded by bush. Today I am dreaming of chasing the late afternoon sun on a deck. Whipbirds crack the air with their song. A chill is creeping up the hill and I'm wondering how long I can leave it before I have to rise and pull the doors to. Perhaps I'll light my first fire of the season. But not quite now. Just a little more time in the sun. Bonnet Hill House in Tasmania by Dock4.
(Note to Tasmanian readers. I have an inkling that whipbirds are not found on your island but it's my daydream and they're my favourite bird call.)

From the architect. The premise of Cube House is abstract: a cube of side 9m. Each surface is sub-divided into nine modules of 3m, getting a structure with 3 levels. Its function modulates the volume through the composition of solids and voids. Intimate spaces are transformed into solids; while social spaces are voids. These levels are the organizational basis of the program. Each corresponds to a part of the function.
This is a beach house south of Lima, on a corner lot with level differences between the front and the back streets,...

« Kutarq studio presents ‘Gradient’ an original shelving unit very appropriate for domestic spaces.
This bookcase is the result of combining an innovative structure with common materials and a very straightforward assembly system. Natural plywood and steel frames work great together and are linked by hidden screws, giving this aspect of lightness; the frames look like they are floating.
The product comes flat packed and can be assembled in a few minutes. The shelves are made from steel frames and poplar plywood boards. Each leg is a flat piece of phenolic plywood that is bent during the assembly of the components.«
Deux larges pièces de bois jouant le rôle de piètement viennent soutenir l’ensemble des étages de part et d’autre de la structure.
Le tout réalisé en contreplaqué et acier, chaque système de fixation et vis sont soigneusement cachés laissant supposer que seul la torsion des pieds rigidifie l’ensemble !
Ce procédé permet une livraison à plat.

4 Views is located near Winchester, Hampshire, England and was designed by AR Design Studio. This private residence has an elegant and sophisticated interior. This is a tranquil and restful house that features two floors and frames the best views from the surrounding area. Light, sight and see-through were the three main “ingredients” which stood at the basis of the design.
Leave your problems at home, for this is the place for absolute relaxation. The extensive glazing to walls, roof lights and open central garden allow natural light to flood the upper floor, giving a generous feeling of space. The skylights create an enchanting backdrop to the interior, the spaces constantly alive with light and shadow from passing clouds, providing a stimulating continual connection...

geometrically placed in a palette of vintage tones, the documented objects are society's 'technological' media devices from the past, brought to life in a collection of moving images.
