susanne nobis minimalist lake house

On 10, Jul 2011 | In Design, Selected Posts | By sue

This minimalist lake house designed by (and for) engineer/architect Susanne Nobis is so striking, with clean lines and simple, graphic shapes. The overall effect is airy and modern, and the design allows for maximum views of the surrounding nature. The house, located by Lake Starnberg (near Munich), is a modern reimagining of a traditional twin boathouse.

der muslhaufen: armin blasbichler’s south tyrol home

On 06, Jul 2011 | In Design, Selected Posts | By sue

Architect Armin Blasbichler’s home was featured on Design*Sponge recently, and I was blown away by its whimsical, clean aesthetic. I think that so often, spaces are really cool and modern but somewhat lifeless, or they’re very creative but feel too precious/overblown to live in.

Photographer Matt Lambros’s After the Final Curtain project is a series of photo essays exploring “the effects of years of neglect and decay in some of America’s greatest theaters.” Love the lonely, haunting, forgotten feeling of the photographs—and I hope the project will inspire renewed restoration efforts.

“spomenik” by jan kempenaers: yugoslavia’s forgotten monuments

On 01, Apr 2011 | In Design, History, Selected Posts | By sue

These imposing, space age, Halo-esque structures are monuments of former Yugoslavia’s Socialist Republic. For his project “Spomenik: The End of History,” Belgian photographer Jan Kempenaers spent three years traveling around the Balkans to capture the forgotten structures. During the 60s and 70s, the Yugoslavian government commissioned hundreds of monuments (“Spomeniks”), built at sites of WWII battles, concentration camps, and cemeteries.
