Wood is once more dominating! We love it! Via Blood and Champagne.
“Being a Chicagoan, I have always been attracted to the beauty of architecture. While some celebrate a structure’s construction, I am drawn to its deconstruction; when these industrial, commercial and residential buildings transition into ruins. It is at these moments when the energy needed to preserve extinguishes; when a building’s existence is no longer deemed viable or valuable. In these forgotten and overlooked places, I see not just loss, tragedy, or decay, but the chaos in which a new architect’s vision may be born.
Buildings too have a finite existence on earth, eventually succumbing to those forces affecting us all. But their disintegration need not be unattractive or disgraceful, hidden before demolition. Seeing these transitions, whether they are graceful or crude, remind us of our own mortality. My goal is to capture these moments.” Eric Holubow
Janis from Pinecone Camp shot a very cute apartment for Anthology, designed by Peter Wilds (formerly of The Cross). The homeowner, Carol Dey, is a world traveller and has some great little collections from her travels. Here’s a snippet…..

An old garage turns out to be a contemporary house! Acropolis view just rocks!
The kitchen is what i liked most from the entire house! I loved the windows, the quiet cement and the color details!
