Over on my Youtube channel I've got a project tutorial for making this spooky Haunted Forest Card with a witch flying in front of the moon over some trees. I used stamps and dies from Stampin' Up for this easy Read More...
This Hamptons-inspired home was designed specifically for a husband-wife client who wanted intentional rooms and individualized spaces styled to be playfully preppy with coastal undertones. The primary design goal from the interior designers of Martha O'Hara Interiors was to achieve flexible, simple and intuitive use of space, while invoking surprise and delight with unique pairings and eye-catching materials. They mixed tailored and organic selections, florals with patterned tiles, vibrant inclusions of colors and prints all while maintaining a casually timeless result.

How are you today? Wasn't this home beautiful? I love the pops of color and the cabinetry in this home. Autumn has finally arrived where we live. The trees are a mix of yellows, reds and orange and there's the rain so much rain. I look outside and the weather seems to be telling me to curl-up in bed with a good book and I might just do that at least until the kids are back from school.
An interior courtyard makes up the home's outdoor space Brick City House is a new residence in Denver, Colorado, that takes a page from the book of midcentury modern design. Designed by local practice Studio B, the simple construction is characterized by a flat-roofed rectangular volume arranged around an interior courtyard with a pool. The 4,600-square-foot home was intended to blend in with the neighborhood, where the older homes are bungalow-style and have large entry porches. Brick City creates a twist on that architecture by incorporating both brick and a porch into a new silhouette.
Still, it blends in thanks to its clean lines and openness to the surrounding area. The street-facing side features a recessed, wood-paneled entrance that becomes a covered porch, with a section of glass showing a glimpse of the interiors.
Inside, the same materials make up the sleek interiors, where sliding glass doors let natural light pour in and also create a seamless indoor-outdoor connection. The flowing layout includes an open-plan living, dining, and kitchen area along on edge and corner of the house, while a master suite with guest bedroom are found on the other side. In the basement are an additional bedroom, media room, office, and wine cellar, and a garage is attached to the main house. Take a look.
[*] Building Services Engineer: B-PLAN GmbH & Co. KG
[*] Client: Leibniz-Institute for Tropospheric Research
From the architect. The Leibniz Institute for Tropospheric Research in Leipzig (TROPOS) was founded in 1992 in order to research processes in the troposphere and has established itself with a research profile that is unique worldwide. At the core of the research lies the formation of aerosols and clouds and their influence on climate and human health. As an internationally leading institution for the basic research of aerosols and clouds, TROPOS gathers, analyses and models physical and chemical processes from the molecular and microscale up to long-distance transport in areas of varying contamination. The results of the research work build the foundations for policy recommendations regarding issues of climate and health in politics.
The institute resides in the Science Park in North East Leipzig. TROPOS works here alongside the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research and further institutions of the Leibniz scientific community. Starting from the institute in the old laboratory from DDR times TROPOS has continuously grown through the addition of the administrative building, the cloud laboratory, the aerosol chamber hall as well as the datacentre and logistic centers. The newest member of the TROPOS family is a highly efficient research machine that secures the know-how and high-ranking international position of the institute through conditions that are focused on optimizing the lab work.
At the heart of the new TROPOS laboratory modules is a central double height aerosol chamber hall. The analysis of elementary chemical processes in the atmosphere are transmitted from the specialized surrounding laboratories into complex models. The concept is based on a laboratory module of 3,60 x 7,20 x 3,60m that can be added together according to special requirements to form laboratories of different sizes. The design of the interior follows the corporate identity of the TROPOS Institute by using the colors blue and white. The building can be seen as an image of its functional requirements: a row of laboratories whose modular organization has been transmitted into the construction and design of the architecture.
Ground Floor Plan
On the long sides of the building, the facades are composed of standardized, prefabricated sandwich elements (incorporating a load bearing layer, insulation, and cladding). The faade modules of 3,60 x 3,60m reflect the structure of the laboratory units. The smoothly formed surface of the concrete elements is accentuated by a sandblasted border around the window whose profile extends 2cm in front of the remaining faade and a slim white edging made of metal sheeting in the window reveals. The front ends of the building are covered in white metal cladding that is wrapped around the roof like an encompassing bracket.
The building envelope has been made particularly cost-effective through the high use of prefabricated elements, which only require 37% of the total budget for the building and following the maxim that as much of the available resources as possible should be channeled into research work. A striking feature of the TROPOS laboratory modules is the surface of the roof, which is dominated by technical installations that are designed to function as an external laboratory for the implementation of long-term experimental studies and create the appearance of a highly technological research machine.
