Kalkin´s container houses!

7 Apr

You all know how i love unique design/architecture, when someone uses something normal and changes it to something brilliant! The architect Adam Kalkin, took an ordinary shipping container and made beautiful houses out of it.

“The beautiful home stretches the boundaries of modern design and is truly a work of art.  It was created by stacking a dozen orange “reclaimed” shipping containers in a T-shape while replacing some of the steel pannels with large windows looking out over the rocky peninsula to Blue Hill Bay. ”

It´s possible to rent the “containers” for $6000-$10000 a week. I just LOVE  the playfulness of the spaces.  It feels as if they really were houses and courtyard. There are so many details to catch your eye! Amazing!

The 24/7 cupcake ATM!! Can someone please bring this idea to Europe!

24 Mar

Even though it´s not interior or design I felt the need to share this amazing thing with you guys!

I definitly loves cupcakes!! Love them!! Like right now, I would almost kill for a chocolate cupcake with cream cheese frosting! 😀 So if you live in Beverly Hills you are extremely lucky! Sprinkles, a cupcake store has a 24 hours open cupcakeATM.

Think about being able to buy a cupcake on your way home from a night of clubbing, and not a kebab. I would love to had that option! Going to the local cupcakeATM for a late night snack 😀 😀 😀 Ps: I think they opened up a second cupcakeATM in New York around new years!!

After looking at these pictures i´m extremely close to breaking my diet and making some cupcakes ASAP! Please, can someone bring this idea to Europe? Pretty please! I read about this cupcakeATM and got the pictures from WeHeart ❤

The Corinthian Club

19 Mar

I read about The Glasgow Ship Bank at WeHeart. This Ship bank was built in 1842 and restored in 1999. The Corinthian Club has re-opened, after a multimillion-pound refurbishment led by Graven Images. The company Graves Images won the Elle Decoration Best Interior award on their work on the Corinthian club.

I just love this building! It has a contemporary touch of elegance! The wonderful glass balconies overlooking the casino. Just by looking around you gets feeling of the high society in 1842.

” Elsewhere, modern touches are fused with the building’s original decedent glamour – delivering a shamelessly opulent venue that quite simply cannot be ignored…”

Quotes and pictures are from WeHeart!

The Tree Hotel!

18 Mar

Ever wanted to live in trees? Well in Harads, Sweden you do have the opportunity. Maybe not the “Tarzan style”,  but I wound not mind living in these really creative, unordinary “tree houses”. These rooms are created by the really unique architectural firm Tham & Videgård Arkitekter. The Treehotel is a hotel situated in a Boreal forest! Not only can you live in an amazing room, you have a wonderful view of a beautiful forest. It´s located at the far north of Sweden close to the Arctic circle!

“The functions included provide for a living for two people; a double bed, a small bath room, a living room and a roof terrace. Access to the cabin is by a rope bridge connected to the next tree.”

“To prevent birds colliding with the reflective glass, a transparent ultraviolet colour is laminated into the glass panes which are visible for birds only.”

Here is the link for the hotel (the quotes are from here), where you could book a stay and see more amazing pictures!

Ending the drought!

18 Mar

I have not written a new post in a while, so I´m finally ending the drought today! Just been trying to focus on my new job, and not on how many people who reads my blog or follows me. I´m not really that focused on blogstatistics, but when that view counter reaches an amazingly 5000 hits a while ago I just felt this enormous pressure to maintain it and keep satisfying my readers! I forgot that the ONLY reason I blog is because I love sharing what I find online and discussing it with you guys! I love reading your funny, interesting comments and to be frankly I really miss that!

So continue being the awesome readers that you are and comment!

NU-OVO – “The egg”

29 Feb

The italian architect Paolo Maldott took inspiration from a well known protein source and created a mobile egg. As the buyer can use it for whatever you want. An office? A bed? It´s your choice!

 

The “shell” is waterproof so you can use it as your own personal space indoors and outdoors. The egg can be closed by sliding the door, and has enough space for two people.

 

I got the inspiration from: Modernarchitectureconsept
