sam + pam

Don't you sometimes wish you could be a kid again? After seeing this play structure by the office of mcfarlane biggar, I ABSOLUTELY DO! sam + pam is a play structure for kids. The two-metre by two-metre twin structure is made entirely out of 2×3" spruce-pine-fir protected from the elements with a clear varnish. 'Sam + Pam' suggests new forms of play from the premise of doing "much with little". Inside the slatted three-storey towers are ladders for climbing up to various perches and protected spaces. Kids can clamber through the multiple entrances connected by a rope bridge and monkey bars. Outside one of the towers, a pole slide offers another escape route. (It was built as part of the Playhouse Challenge for charity)

office of mcfarlane biggar

The office of mcfarlane biggar is an architecture and design firm based in North Vancouver. Their portfolio has plenty of modern designs with a mid-century, Dwell-magazine-lovin' vibe. What I really love about these creative folks is this: We are champions of wood in buildings – where it makes sense to utilize its structural and aesthetic properties. Recognized as leaders in the use of innovative wood technologies, we have maintained this focus throughout our firm’s history. Many of our projects demonstrate our ability to provide simple, yet innovative wood solutions that bring warmth and character to spaces while also drawing from a local resource that speaks to the natural history and wood processing industry of our region. AMEN! An architecture firm after my own heart.

Stalking white on the inside black on the outside

A modern interpretation of life in an inner city terrace. Crisp and white with theatrical flourishes and calm private zones. Stylish simplicity and sunshine. Sunshine. You'll never know dear how much I love you. I'm stalking in Paddington, Sydney. Link here while it lasts.

Soledad Alzaga

Soledad Alzaga is an interior designer based in San Francisco whose portfolio I came across the other day. I was immediately captivated as her designs included such a variety of styles and are so unique. I selected a random mix of favourites to share. (p.s. I'm totally gaga for the chairs in the grey dining room)
