This week’s featured project takes us to the shores of Lac St-François in Adstock, Canada, where we’ll find L’Accostée House by Bourgeois / Lechasseur Architects. L’Accostée House is a large, beautiful home with strong contemporary shapes that are softened by warm and organic wooden building materials.
Steeped in golden paint and graphic textures, behold, one of my favorite architectural projects ever!
MVRDV’s The Imprint is a pair of buildings in the Paradise City entertainment complex of Incheon, South Korea. Crafted with the purpose of art-entertainment in mind, MVRDV was able to incorporate fresh and eccentric features in this project, deeming The Imprint a work of art itself.
This week’s featured project takes us all the way to Imingfjell Norway, where we’ll be drooling over Arkitektværelset’s Hooded Cabin as photographed by Marte Garmann. Marte is based in Oslo, and photographs all of her projects — whether architecture, food, or lifestyle images — with the same drama, darkness, and gorgeous pockets of light that you’ll find here at The Hooded Cabin.
Human Interaction and bold color is the name of the game in this Project of the Week!
Eugeni Pons, an architectural photographer from Spain, who I admire greatly for his rich use of lighting and beautiful incorporation of color, does another thing masterfully — gives life to his photographs by way of including people in the scenes.
This week’s featured project takes us to the coastal resort town of Cascais, Portugal. Here, we’ll find The Wall House by Guedes Cruz Arquitectos. Architectural photographer Ricardo Oliveira Alves is taking us on the visual tour, highlighting the amazing design features of this home (hint: it has two stories of pools).
Human history is full of great duos, and this week, we’re introducing you to a pair of architectural photographers who should be on that list! These guys are equal parts talented and sweet as can be. Their work for this particular project can be seen on a list of Dezeens Top 10 Posts, and on Dwell Community’s Top 20 homes among others.
Working a desk job doesn’t sound so bad if it’s at the Campari Group’s Canadian office. With Emil Teleki’s minimal fresh designs, this ain’t your daddy’s office. Photographed by the one and only Lisa Petrole, you’re in for clean colors, perfect compositions, and beautiful light. We’ve got one heck of a Project of the Week here for you, so let’s jump in.
Colleen O’Brien is a fashion photographer, mom to the cutest dog I’ve ever seen, and Mike Kelley’s secret weapon. Colleen’s list of duties is pretty extensive, from styling and propping shots, to making sure Mike and his tripod don’t fall off of whatever precipice they’re on. She’s the girl that makes everything on location run smooth so that Mike can focus on making the photographs.
Warning: This Project of the Week may induce strong yearnings for a beach vacation. Up on this week’s featured project docket is The Surf Club, photographed by architectural and interiors photographer Mike Schwartz.
What I love about this project is the clear progression of time throughout the shoot.
If you’re hungry for great architecture photography in an epic location that harnesses great compositions and use of models, look no further than this Project of the Week! Today we’ll be exploring NYC based photographer Kevin Scott’s images of The Messner Mountain Museum Corones by Zaha Hadid Architects.
Barry MacKenzie is a tour de force player in the Architectural Photography / Interiors game. Chances are, you’ve seen him on the PROEDU tutorials, at his workshops with Tony Roslund, or heard him lately in his role as co-founder and host of our favorite new podcast, BAAM.
All of Barry’s work is incredible, and there could be a POTW on each project of his, but I’m pretty taken by a short and sweet shoot he did for Hedgeford and Berkley.
BPN Architects’ Ghost House has been causing a ruckus across the architecture industry, winning awards and being picked up by publications; and rightfully so because it’s so stinkin’ cool! As-Cast concrete, huge windows, modern lighting, and bold symmetry make this house worthy of Project of the Week.
On edit days when I’m glued to my desk, unable to sit in silence, I cruise through entire discographies of music by the bushel. In an attempt to harness the time I’m sitting still, and actually learn something, I’ve turned to podcasts. It seems though, that there’s an endless amount of things to do at my desk and a finite amount of genuinely good content to consume.
In 2009, Våler Kirke (Vaaler Church for us English speaking folk) was lost to a fire. Mourned by the Norwegian town, a global competition was opened up for the church’s reconstruction. Architect Espen Surnevik was the victor and created the new design for the church which honors its heritage while putting a modern spin on the “rebirth” of the original structure from 1805.
Helsinki, Finland. A place riddled with funky architecture and rich design. Heck, there’s even a great band named — well — Architecture in Helsinki. This week we dive into a great piece of modern Nordic design by ALA Architects’. Enter, the Oodi Library. This relatively new yet iconic building has been the star of many photographs, but one architectural photographer, in particular, made me really fall in love with it.
It’s finally feeling like autumn on America’s East Coast, which means an ushering in of all things dark, autumnal colors palates, and a craving for cozy. The embodiment of all those feelings is this series of interior design photographs by Haris Kenjar. Haris is the king of impossibly cool vignettes, and this series shows us why.
There is a special place in Californian architecture marked by the renowned work of architect John Lautner. Kicking off his career as Frank Lloyd Wright’s apprentice, Lautner fell into his own iconic style and took over the West Coast mid-century scene. Spanning from mod Palm Springs residences in Bond films to Coachella hotels (before it was cool, might I add), then passing through the hands of endless celebrities and L.A.
