Home in a pyramid

Neko sent us an email with a link from a story that was featured in The New York Times about a year ago that I had to blog about since Jo and I love featuring conversions here on DTI. This one is pretty freaking cool - not our typical church conversion. It's an apartment located in Seattle, 462 feet above the city, in a pyramid atop the Smith Tower occupying the 37th and 38th floors - a total of 1750 sq ft. With views this spectacular, who cares what the apartment looks like??!!

moon

AC sent us an email this week to let us know about the architecture firm he works for based in Bristol, UK called moon. I really admire their work - it's real world designs that are fairly simple with brilliant little touches here and there. My favourites: kitchen cabinet wrapping into the dining room, desk nook, wall cut-out for projector screen, funky round door handles (!!!!!), wrap-around bathroom cabinets, glass stair partition, funky uneven stairs...

Tribeca loft

Soaring ceilings and seemingly endless space. A dream loft space in Manhattan. But how to make it work as a living space without losing the beauty of all that openness? Sliding partitions and walls of fabric dissect the loft creating intimate areas. Pavilions encased in cloth and zones defined by glass placed within the void of the loft itself. Open and warehouse like. Enclosed and private. Raw and beautiful, luxurious in its space. An amazing loft home designed by New Zealand firm Fearon Hay.

LOVE

Think I can convince my husband that we need one of these suspended wood stoves in our third floor office/media room? Love the wood cart too!

Stiff + Trevillion take 2


Stiff + Trevillion = leading UK architects featured by Jo about 2 years ago. Modern, clean lines and innovative designs. I can't get enough of the tiles in the kitchen above and bathroom after the jump. FAB! And I don't really understand the kitchen above but I frankly don't care because it rocks.
