The New York obssession continues with this fantastic wee loft apartment in the East Village. Its only 46 square metres but what an amazing example of what you can do with very little space. We only hope no one rolls out of that bed!!!

this is the Red Square Yacht by Dunya Yachts. This massive, 236-foot cruiser stands tall above the water line, providing enough room for 12 overnight guests and their crew. From bow to stern, the Red Square yacht is lined with contemporary furnishings, red teak floors, three open decks and a series of inner cabin rooms for rest and entertainment. Prices have no been announced but you can bet it will be 8 figures. This will go to the top of our wishlist thanks.
A house is excavated and a space created. The insertion of an object allows inhabitation.
The house is on a terrace whose split-section is native to Georgian Dublin; a grand parlor to the front with smaller rooms to the rear at half-levels one up and one down from the street.
We just love this fantastic idea of breathing new life into a somewhat basic, although lovely terrace house and creating this amazing new structure whilst staying true to the existing home. Oh! and there is no denying that bathroom is awesome!

This ain’t no mirage. This is the Tangga House in Singapore by Guz Architects
Description from Guz Architects:
The house is a contemporary interpretation of a traditional courtyard house, laid out around a central green courtyard with a double height stair and entry area forming the focal point of the project. The L-shaped plan creates open spaces which encourage natural ventilation and offer resident’s views over the courtyard to the verandah, roof gardens and beyond. Lushly planted roof gardens surround the house and add to the effect that nature is evident in every part of the house. The large roof above the courtyard creates an indoor and outdoor space leading to the gardens and swimming pool which wraps around two sides of the house. The tangga house hopefully gives the owners the opportunity to live in harmony and comfort with nature, in singapores hot tropical climate.
What is brilliant about Poliform is the way they layout their shops. It is as though you are walking through someones beautiful house, it gives customers an idea about how to achieve a “Poliform” home. We are obssessed with the Varenna kitchens!!. (We are sure there will be a few ladies swooning at the walk in wardrobe designs!!)

The Cuban-born artist duo Guerro De La Paz have created a series of sculptural art works out of discarded, recycled clothing. These figures of sculptural iconography are made from t-shirts, shoes, boots, socks and more, many of which have been dug out of secondhand stores in Little Haiti, Miami. The message Guerro De La Paz conveys with their recycled clothing art is about the consume-and-discard nature of our mass-produced lifestyles. Our habits of consumption put us so very far away from the creation of the items we use– and just as far away from the piles of trash they become. Guerra De La Paz doesn’t see trash, in this sense, but an opportunity for artistic beauty and expression. [guerra de la paz via mymodernmet]
