A Cut Above

In Visual Art on April 9, 2010 at 1:53 pm

I have always loved wood cuts and scratchboard images. Kent Barton brings this particular style to new heights. His work is beautiful, with every line and cut artfully placed. Kent works on a grand scale, and his art is often found in architectural placements, as depicted in the image above. I could stare for hours!

Hat tip to lines and colors.

Stark and stunning in detail, Melissa B. Tubbs shows a firm grasp on the barrel of her pen. She is based in Alabama and specializes in light on architectural forms. Several of her pieces are shown on her blog. Her work is so lovely, it will take your breath away.

Why Come Out Of Your Shell …

…. when you can live in it. This extraordinary house was built in 2006 in Mexico. Rooms become chambers, and the interior fittings mimic what molusks must feel like in their own tiny shell-homes. See more fascinating pictures here.

Cool Kids Design

It’s a children’s hospital in London. Really. Check out The Cool Hunter for some sleek and chic kids’ spaces. Fantastic designs for the shorter set. But I do have a question: why is all the best design in countries outside of the U.S.?

A Swedish Flat That Reflects the Change of Season

In Building & Design Art on April 8, 2009 at 3:18 am

This apartment at Humlegarden in Stockholm, Sweden, was transformed by architects Tham & Videgard Hansson. Floors and walls are parqueted in colors to reflect the spectrum of seasonal color change exhibited in the garden outside. The architects transformed the turn-of-the-century art nouveau flat into a crazy quilt of modulated color, offset by stark white furnishings. I can’t imagine being sad in the crazy herringbone decor straight from the Crayola 64 box with built-in sharpener.
I recommend you hit the jump above to see all of the images, but you can get a good feel for the tonal change from the floor plan below.
