Casio‘s iconic G-Shock line offers a three-piece collection of seasonally apt new colorways for the coming winter holiday. The “Blizzard White” collection sees the GW-8900, GA-100 and GD-X6900 models brandished in stark white-grey with a matte finish — a military inspired choice as it’s originally used for snow terrain camouflage. The white-grey adorns the main bezel of the three, while further applications of military motifs are found on the faces with precise detailing down to the signature red star embellishments. As for functionality, the GW-8900 comes with a multi-band 6 station radio system covering China, US, UK, Germany and two Japan stations, while its Tough Solar program automatically re-calibrates for the accurate time. The GA-100 offers a 1/1000 second stopwatch function, speed measurement recording and maintains magnetic resistance, while the more basic GD-X6900 comes with G-Shock’s classic illuminating and 20bar water resistant perks.

Florida-based architectural practice, Max Strang Architecture have designed the Lakehouse Residence project.  This eco-friendly contemporary home is located in Winter Haven, Florida, US. Registered with the USGBC, this modern property is anticipated to be Winter Haven’s first LEED-certified residence. The interior design has been conceived as wooden volumes nestled within an outer stucco “shell”. The shell provides generous eight-foot overhangs, which shelter the walls of glass from the Florida sun. A narrow courtyard amplifies the arrival experience and creates a privacy barrier for the private realm of the home.

The luxury property incorporates important passive environmental design concepts that result in abundant day-lighting and cross-ventilation potential. Glazing on the south elevation is extremely limited and a mature oak tree filters afternoon solar heat gain. Active environmental design features include a solar photovoltaic system, solar hot-water heaters, geothermal HVAC and LED lighting. The luxury Miami home, located on a central Florida lake, contains four bedrooms and a kitchen, dining room, living room and office. A pool and covered terrace are positioned along the lake-side of the home.
