SCAFFOLDING OBSESSION

Surrounded by construction, I have become incredibly inspired by scaffolding. All of sudden, it came to me – scaffolding would be great for creating a bed and perhaps many other pieces of furniture. So I am just inspired…I am considering making a headboard out of scaffolding for my place. The following are some great pieces for inspiration.

Designers Maartje Dros and Francois Lombarts used scaffolding to turn a construction site into a conference area. The project, called Motel Out of The Blue included meeting rooms , lecture hall (pictured above), dining room,  library and 50 rooms (above) for visitor accommodation.   I particularly love the day bed…I could see that transformed into something really comfy for indoors or outdoors.

BLIK WALL DECALS

Blik provides a line of self-adhesive wall decals (large stickers) that can be used to inexpensively and temporarily transform your space.  Blik decals can be applied to any flat surface including walls, windows, mirrors, ceilings, tabletops, or flooring.  When you tire of things quickly like I do, then you can simply remove and re-envision.  Also, decals can be customized to work with your vision of your space.  The photo above illustrates a custom installation in a home.

Modular Villa by Studio Dror

While perusing the Studio Dror website, I happened upon this stunning concept for a modular villa in New York. Decidedly modern in design, the pre-fab modular structure is inspired by Villa Rotunda, designed by Renaissance architect, Andrea Palladio and completed in 1591.

In this modular home, the wings or cubes are constructed off-site and connect at a central living room with a balcony.  The layout is reminiscent of Villa Rotunda with the salons connected by the central circular hall which also features a balcony.  The translation from classical architecture makes this modern design both efficient and stunning.  Check out the Studio Dror site for more info by clicking here.

MY WORK PUBLISHED...

One of my renderings for the interior design of Sensing, a restaurant in the Fairmont Battery Wharf Hotel in Boston’s North End, has been included in the book, Hand Drawing for Designers.  The drawing is rendered using a Sketchup view underlay, prismacolor markers, mixed with pastels.  I am so excited that my work will help young designers convey their designs.  The space itself turned out pretty great as well.  It was great working with an amazing team at Arrowstreet on this project.  See a photograph of the finished space below.
