Making The Best of Auckland’s Fickle Weather At The Franklin Road House With David Straight

Today’s Project of the Week is a moody beauty coming at you from architectural photographer David Straight based out of Auckland, New Zealand. The Franklin Road House was designed by Jack Mckinney Architects with interiors by Katie Lockhart Studio and is a sublime space. David has a boatload of great insight into this project and the way he documented it, so I’ll let him take it away!

Photographing Isreal’s Bold And Graphic Escher House With Shai Epstein

Today we’re headed to Tel-Aviv with architectural and interiors photographer Shai Epstein! He has photographed the fun and funky Escher House for architect Adi Weinberg of Arbejazz Studio.

Shai masterfully shows off the punchy color contrast and graphic nature of this home. His compositions emphasize the rectilinear shapes and abundance of leading lines present throughout the space.

Mass Collective Co-Founder Francesco Russo Caught The London Mastaba Before It Was Gone

This week’s featured project comes to us from the Serpentine Lake in Hyde Park, London. In the summer of 2018, The London Mastaba — created by famed Christo and Jeanne-Claude — made its debut to parkgoers as part of the Serpentine Galleries, then disappeared 3 months later. Architectural photographer and Mass Collective cofounder Francesco Russo who splits his time between London and Venice made some beautiful photographs of this installation and sent them our way after the unfortunate passing of Christo early this summer.

Highway To The Danger Zone: Husband / Wife Team Ryan and Sarah Miller Pull Off Incredible Photos of the Chicago Skyway Toll Bridge

When Chicago based husband and wife duo Ryan and Sarah Miller of Miller + Miller Architectural Photography submitted in their project of the Chicago Skyway Canopy Plaza, I opened it and yelled out “YES!” Behold, the sexiest photographs of a toll plaza you’ve ever seen!

Photographing civil architecture and infrastructure isn’t always glamorous, plus it demands a ton of logistics and risks.

Exploring Contemporary Iranian Architecture With Navid Atrvash

This week’s featured project takes us on an exciting trip to the city of Sadra in Fars, Iran! Here, we’ll check out the Green Land Convention Center’s Café Gallery by architect Mehrdad Iravanian and photographed by our new friend, architectural photographer Navid Atrvash.

Interestingly, for being in “The Cradle of Civilization,” Sadra is a fairly new city, and was established in the 1990s.

His photographs of Ossington House document a custom home renovation by Sheshko Construction and Colizza Bruni. I was introduced to JVL’s work by Barry Mackenzie, and know that you guys are going to love the crisp colors and gorgeous light that Justin harnesses in this project!

Documenting The Crossroad of Old and New Architecture with Tess Kelly

My newest architectural photography crush is on the lovely Tess Kelly. Tess photographs architecture, interiors, and still life all across the globe, but calls Melbourne home. Her work has a gorgeous style that is dripping with great coloration, contrast, and light.

This particular project of Clifton Hill residence built by Blueprint Construction Company for DX Architects, and styled by Larritt-Evans, is ultra interesting because it is a heritage architecture project.

Peter Clarke Gets Dark and Moody in the Land Down Under

Welcome aboard this week’s featured project with photographer Peter Clarke and the incredible home, Casa X by Branch Studio. Peter and Casa X both reside in Australia, the land of great architecture, so you’re in for a treat! What is most noteworthy about this project though, is how Peter documented the space with such drama and mood while still observing the unspoken “rules” of architectural photography.

A Man of Many Talents, Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen Designs and Documents a Traditional Danish Country Home

I’ve often heard that if you want to be good at something, you need to niche down and become a specialist. While this often rings true for most aspects of work and —well—photography, Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen and the crew at Norm Architects make me think otherwise. Norm, based in Denmark, is primarily an architectural firm, yet it spreads its reach into art direction, product design, furniture creation, and photography.
