Jim Stephenson and the Shingle House

Posted on Tue, 26 Mar 2013 by midcenturyjo

By now many of us have seen (and admired) the Shingle House by NORD. A beautifully simple house in tune with its environment. What could be better? Enter architectural photographer Jim Stephenson. A house that I like becomes a house that I want. His deep love of the built environment and his ability to interpret how people interact with a space make his photos come alive. So often a space is depicted as cold and clinical but architecturally perfect. By including people the home becomes more intimate, more real, more wonderful.

Simple & elegant design at its best

Simple and beautiful… the lines with the panelling are wonderful… xv

Ruth says:

Gosh, this would be the kind of place I would need to stand in to feel "it". Looking at the images, all I feel are lines…I think I'd go stir crazy with all those straight lines up and down the walls and ceilings.
