Solar access to the front and a busy road to the rear drove the creation of a central courtyard with two story alfresco and mezzanine walkway which formed the focal point of the home. The mixture of timber and stone complement the metal work and concrete giving the home a warm industrial interior design edge. The free form living area features a central polished plaster ethanol fireplace and is adjacent to the state of the art kitchen with a concealed cool room and pantry. The remainder of the ground floor is comprised of a library, powder room, laundry and a separate master wing with dressing room, ensuite and private courtyard. Designed for multi-generational living, the upper floor has a separate living room and balcony which overlooks the stairwell and courtyard beyond. Both upper floor bedrooms access the mezzanine walkway and have a shared bathroom and separate kitchenette.

“Pyramid House” by Juan Carlos Ramos


01 03 06 07 08

The simple geometric shape of this conceptual pyramid-shaped home creates a clean aesthetic, while remaining extremely eye-catching due to its iconic though rarely applied form. Some highlights of this design are the multiple windows cut out of the four large triangular facades that allow natural light into the home. An enormous window covers one entire side of the structure that visually exposes and lightens the design. Viewers also get to see inside the modern multi-level interior which features a library, balcony, two bedrooms, and even a recording studio that have all been cleverly sectioned to fit inside this unconventional concept.

An Architect Gone Mad


tim-1 tim-2 tim-3

Without the use of a camera Portland-based artist Jim Kazanjian sifts through a library of some 25,000 images from which he carefully selects the perfect elements to digitally assemble mysterious buildings born from the mind of an architect gone mad. While the architectural and organic pieces seem wildly random and out of place, Kazanjian brings just enough cohesion to each structure to suggest a fictional purpose or story that begs to be told.

The PartyCloud.


When it comes to different amalgamations of Disk Jockeying, there is an endless field of ways to show your talent with the same act.  iPads, iPods, DJ controllers, beat pads, or turn tables, can all be used to rock a crowd, but with the advent of Party Cloud, things have changed a little.  Using any computer with an internet connection, a DJ can potentially spin a party using just the website alone.  For me personally I don’t know if its more a useful tool, or yet another way for people to cheapen an art (much like Guitar Hero did for people who ACTUALLY play those songs on the guitar).  But check it out and let the crew know what you think.

Be Your Own Souvenir.


So you’re at the museum, and deep down in the sub-basement right next to the restrooms you happen to discover an enormous machine that looks like it was pulled from the Aliens II movie set. And then you notice you can insert a dollar, and suddenly the machine whirs to life and pipes hot, neon green plasticine into a mold in front of your very eyes as you inahale noxious fumes. Within moments you’re in the possession of a bona-fide neon green submarine, a memento of your visit to the museum that smells strange for days. Be Your Own Souvenir by Barcelona-based blablabLAB is just like that, except a trillion times more awesome. Using custom software developed using openFrameworks and openKinect, visitors film themselves in front of 3 kinect sensors for a full 360-degree scan and within moments a 3D printer known as a RepRap machine spits out a little army guy version of themselves. Every museum in the world should have one of these in their sub-basement, though they can probably install this by the front door.
