Welcome aboard this week’s featured project with photographer Peter Clarke and the incredible home, Casa X by Branch Studio.

Norm, based in Denmark, is primarily an architectural firm, yet it spreads its reach into art direction, product design, furniture creation, and photography.

I came across Marcus Stork on Instagram and was immediately drawn in by the quality of light and depth of his compositions.
