WHERE THEY CREATE

There is something mesmerising about looking at the workspaces of other artists, designers and creators. Looking at the things they collect and how their personally crafted environment inspire their work offers me much insight into the creative process of other designers, and in turn provides me with new ideas in my own work.
Where They Create is a visual documentation of the creative environments of artist & creatives that Paul Babera met during his travels for photography assignments. He invites us into these spaces: the offices, studios or even workshops. The blog posts are filled with beautiful photos taken by Barbera. Together with the insightful interviews, they reveal the nature of the work that's being done in there, and the people working inside. You get to see the unique collectibles sitting on the shelves or hanging on the walls, the beaten furniture in the rooms, the atmosphere of the entire workspace and most importantly, personal spaces filled with life. Essentially, these aren't your highly polished, pretty interiors found in countless other interior design publications.

 A site highly recommended.

AVANT GARDE HOUSE BY STUDIO LIBESKIND

I had the honour of attending a lecture by the architect Daniel Libeskind in a local university recently and took notice of this particular residential project designed by his team. This bronzed stainless steel structure is designed as one folded plan and is set into the green Connecticut countryside. Created for an art collector client who, according to Libeskind, wants the house itself to be an artwork rather than a typical abode in which he hangs his personal collection (which explains the lack of art inside).

The result is spectacular in an avant-garde manner yet retaining a cozy. The cladding accentuates lustre and exaggerate the changes of light and season, while the interior is finished predominantly in solid stained white oak. Circulation throughout the home is seamless and free-flowing, a theme which carries through in the nearly-nonexistent distinction between inside and outside. Challenging both traditional and modern notions of “the house in the landscape,” this bold design does not sacrifice itself to its natural setting, but selectively incorporates the elements therein for the enhancement of both house and landscape.
