Torquay House | Wolveridge Architects by Unknown
























The language this architecture speaks is certainly an adaptation of surrounding context. This two story, three bedroom house is situated in coastal area, and uses materials that can stand the coastal environmental  conditions.


























Local vegetation are also selected carefully to "blend in" with the surrounding context. But most importantly, it is designed for occupants to enjoy their new residence whether permanently or during the weekends, and to be a place worth arriving all season-long.

Posh Interiors by Michelle Linden





These retail interiors by HPG are quite lovely... posh without being overly so. The furniture is oversized without making you feel as though you've fallen into Alice's wonderland... and both lighting and furniture placement have created a gallery type focus for the items being sold (just as it should be in a retail space).



Invigorating by Michelle Linden

Ok... just to warn you, I've got a ton of photos of the Venice Biennale (some of them are labeled, more are not). If you ever have a chance to visit, I would highly recommend it... Especially, if you are like me, and feeling a bit jaded by work. The Biennale was so invigorating and refreshing, and really reminded me of all the things I love about architecture... Oh, and I saw David Adjaye. But, don't worry... I didn't run up to him like a groupie or anything!
