A-Frame Residence, New York, USA by Bromley Caldari Architects | via
This striking looking A-Frame Residence is the result of an architecture conversion delivered by New York City-based studio Bromley Caldari Architects. The designers completely renovated the interiors of a 1960s beach home on Fire Island, turning it into a sleek hideout. With a spiral staircase splitting down the middle, four dark and cramped bedrooms, a leaky roof, and a cracked pile foundation, the original building required serious interventions.
By adding a new staircase, the layout was positively transformed and functionality took over he entire abode: “On the main level, a double-height living/dining room stretches the length of the window-clad north façade. The open kitchen and house utilities run along the south side. The master bedroom suite features full-height glass sliding doors that take advantage of the view. Although the doors stay mostly open, when guests are present and privacy is required, the sliding glass doors fog up at the flick of a switch.”

EACH LINE ONE BREATH
WHITE SCOPE DURING TEFAF MAASTRICHT 2014
On the 10th of March, the artist John Franzen will open his studio WHITE SCOPE.
His series of contemporary fine art drawings „EACH LINE ONE BREATH” aims at stimulating the viewer’s thoughts about what preceded the primordial elements of human existence. John Franzen examines humanness in its original forms, ranging from serenity in the darkness, to the singularity of ritualistic creation of artwork for arts sake.

This really took a turn for the worst. lmaooo
Fall House Fougeron Architecture
"The long, thin volume of the house conforms to the natural contours of the land and the geometries of the bluff, deforming its shape and structure in response, much like the banana slug native to the region’s seaside forests. In this way, the complex structural system applies natural forms to accommodate the siting. The main bearing system of the house is set back twelve feet from the bluff, both to protect the cliff’s delicate ecosystem and to ensure the structure’s integrity and safety. The house itself is cantilevered over the bluff. The interior is a shelter, an elegant refuge in contrast with the roughness and immense scale of the ocean and cliff."
