THE AMAZING STAIRCASE ///

This staircase I came across on Apartment Therapy was too good to not share! I feel so inspired to try something like this.

CAROLIN REICHERT ///

BUCKMINSTER FULLER QUOTE ///

I really love this quote that Leland Maschmeyer (Director of Strategy at COLLINS) posted on his blog a while ago. “When I am working on a problem I never think about beauty. I only think about how to solve the problem. But when I have finished, if the solution is not beautiful, I know it...

VILLA BY DANIEL LIBESKIND ///

While I consider myself an admirer of Daniel Libeskind’s work I’m not really sure what to think of these €2-3 million pre-fab structures that were just unveiled. Via Dezeen

THE LETTERBOX HOUSE ///

These kind of projects make me wish I had stayed in architecture school. Via PSFK
