Edgenald residence was conceived by the Bercy Chen Studio and it is actually a pretty smart space. It is conceived to be at the best thermical capacity possible. What I like the most is the backyard, that allows you to observe the migration of birds, or take a relaxing bath surrounded b nature. I think it’s a great mixing between nature and architecture, isn’t it?
Spanish interior designer Iñaki Aliste Lizarralde is, apparently, a fan of both floorplans and TV shows. At least this is what you guess after seeing his awesome drawings of popular TV Shows. It is fun because if you follow of any of this shows you’ll see how precise he is with the details of each plan, and how all the elements fit perfectly in each drawing. In his blog you’ll also learn what has been the base to create each plan, as sometimes the flats have changed throughout the seasons of each serie.

Have you heard? An urbanistic plan is considering to take down part of the East Side Gallery, one of the main touristic attractions in Berlin and, let me say, one of the prettiest. It’s actually a part of the Berlin wall that has been transformed into a giantic piece of street art that is worth a couple of visits if you’re in town.
If you want to know more about it, read this article I recently wrote talking about this topic. Regarding the picture, I took it a couple of years ago, can’t wait to go back to Berlin !
I like refuges. They are the perfect place to hide when you want to escape, and also the perfect place to be quiet to do whenever you want. This is probably why this refuge project by studio Wim Goes caught my eye. It in Belgium, and the architects have achieved something quite difficult: to create a peaceful space in a quiet place without saying NO to modern architecture and trends.

Many museums and institutions are lately building some sort of panorama on their roofs so that people can have a 360 degrees view over the city or the district. Good examples for that are the Reichstag Dom in Berlin or the Guinness Museum in Dublin.
The Aros museum in Cophenaguen (Denmark) is also following this new trend and has recently built an amazing panorama called ‘The Rainbow“. I guess by just looking the picture you can tell why : ) According to the museum, the building of this roof is a connection between the museum and heaven, since the museum is conceived under the Divine Comedy from Dante. Really imaginative.. and really nice as well!
Cinemas and theater in open spaces are usually a good idea. But, portable theaters in a beautiful place like the rocky shoreline of Yao Noi, Thailand, then it’s not good, it’s just brilliant. That’s what architect Ole Scheeren designed for the new film festival Film on the Rocks Yao Noi.
The better thing about that is that after the film festival was over and that all the actors and producers went home, this floating theater was donated to the people in Yao Noi, so they could use it as an open playground and an open space.
This is what should really be all the time: Thailand gives you the perfect landscape for you show, and in exchange you give something back.
ENG. It is intersting to see special constructions builded around the globe. Some museums, hotels or particular houses catch our eye for its particular design or the materials they’ve used. However, nothing is better than when you see that one of those “special” buildings has been constructed in a city you particulary know or love.
This is what happened with the new Stuttgart city library. When I first saw the picture, I only thaught “wow, such a nice library” but then I realized it was built it Stuttgart and my heart started pumping really hard.
Besides, mixing architecture and literature always makes me really happy. I specially like the concept of this design: outside is like a complicated Rubik cube, with blue illumination at night. On the other hand, the inside is so simple that architecture becomes secondary and the books become the main protagonists. Good job from architect Eun Young Yi
So after discovering this amazing building I’ve been a bit nostalgic for a while, wondering how long would it take this time to come back to Germany again !
ENG. I’ve spent the whole sunday on trying to give a new look to my living room, and I was pretty proud of the result until I saw this pictures. This really is a really nice apartment ! It’s in Göteborg, Sweden.

ENG. Why I would like to be in Viena ? Well, because they have this awesome 4 floor hammock house ! Totally made with reciclable materials, it is called the Flederhaus (bat house) and there you could find 8 hammocks in each floor.
The bulding is in the middle of a park, so perfect to take nap in spring, right?
