Mariana foi a primeira capital de Minas Gerais e é muito legal perceber que a riqueza histórica da cidade continua sendo valorizada até hoje. Visitar as Minas da Passagem, reminiscentes da exportação de ouro para a Europa, é uma experiência única, assim como poder ver tão claramente a evolução do barroco mineiro através das igrejas de São Francisco de Assis e Nossa Senhora do Carmo, que criam uma paisagem sem igual para uma das cidades de maior valor histórico do Brasil.
I Want To Break Free. How can Architecture affect change? Today's society implicitly teaches the disenfranchised to accept the status quo, with dissent trivialized by the media and platforms of unity or change corrupted by political forces. Architecture has historically been a vanguard to stand against this indifferent reality, which increasingly estranges us from the world and those around us. It is not as simple as offering a luxurious escape from the system (this is in many ways is an essential part of its functioning, read George Ritzer), but rather must offer a real alternative in the form of conceptual and philosophical thought. If we simply design formally or according to commercial intentions we are providing little more than structures of illusion, becoming part of the object we superficially fight against.
On project homes. We have always had a fascination with project homes because, whether we like it or not, they have an enormous impact on our cities, suburbs and landscapes. Today, we think of project homes as big, bloated McMansions - and yet project homes used to be something else entirely - they were simple, stylish and small. Our interest in project homes relates back to mid-century modernism and, in particular, the era of ‘Designer Suburbs.’ It was the time of Pettit + Sevitt and the Small Homes Service - when you could build a good, well designed home for a reasonable sum. Sadly, we have lost sight of this tradition - but we would love to bring it back. This same idea inspired our Smith Street design. Smith Street is a new, twenty-first century project home. It is compact but crafted, has loads of natural light, and is built from good, hard-wearing materials. Over the past few months, we’ve had a few clients approach us about building their very own versions of Smith Street. So if you - or anyone you know - has an interest in the design - DM us or let us know.
PS. This era was wonderfully chronicled in ‘Streets of Your Town,' which is one of the best architecture docos we’ve seen in a long time. Check out @streetsofyour_town for more info.
В Питере мой внутренний социопат радуется как никогда🙈
Возможность встретить знакомых минимальна, эстетическое наслаждение, напротив, на высоте, а ритм жизни вокруг не обязывает чувствовать себя "как-то не так"👌
Телефон надолго не достанешь - холодно, а следовательно и заходить в соц.сети особого желания нет🙅
Сам себе лучший друг! Все гармонично и спокойненько.
Нет, не то что бы я не люблю людей, но пару дней на "тишину" найти нужно каждому😷
South View of a Sausalito California home with unmatched views of San Francisco. The original mid-century modern design was respected while being substantially rebuilt utilizing contemporary advancements in energy efficient design and construction. The voluminous open loft floor plan maximizes openings for natural light and provides a seamless connection between indoor and outdoor spaces.

Pro tip: don't let anybody know that you know how to model stairs in Revit. Today I am re-re-modeling the same stair that has kept me gainfully employed for weeks now... it isn't even a feature stair. Just an egress stair that's trying to be as inconspicuous as possible. You know the second that baby gets built in running up and down those stairs giddy as a school girl. 🤞🤞 Or maybe it'll get VE'd out before it gets to that point. Wouldn't even be mad about that.
