Free books

idea_free books

I truly love concepts like this one: Leaving books, you don’t want anymore, for others to take. Don’t letting them just stand there at home for no use. But passing it one – for free.

And this installation is even made in a super creative wooden design.
I want an “Exchange Place” like this in my hood!

Get your own Viking Ship from Denmark’s Viking Ship Museum

Viking Ship from Denmark's Viking Ship Museum 1 Viking Ship from Denmark's Viking Ship Museum 2 Viking Ship from Denmark's Viking Ship Museum 3

After touring a museum, what do you think is the best gift shop souvenir to commemorate your visit? A post card? A magnet?

At the Viking Ship Museum here in Denmark, you can get your own authentic handcrafted Viking ship. Or you can buy it online!

Part of the facility features a workshop where modern day craftsmen use authentic ancient tools and techniques to build copies of Viking boats. The boat pictured above is actually partly made using authentic Viking tools, but modern equipment as well, so that it can be more easily mass-produced. As a result, the Trýbekkur, as it’s called, will only cost you just north of $24,500.

Only a few elders of Borneo’s Penan tribe still know how to make their unique hunting tool, the blowpipe. Balan is the last person in his village who practices the dying craft.

This short film is an extract from the 30 minute documentary Sunset Over Selungo, which will be released online later this year.

The Perdue House by Rusafova Markulis Architects was a dream built over the course of a decade. According to the architects the house was designed to be “small, efficient, filled with light and addressing this unique, wooded site in the heart of West Asheville.”

While inside, one feels as if they are hidden away in a tree house better than any childhood dream. From the outside, the rich patina of the cor-ten steel veneer panels blends the structure perfectly into the lush green trees that surround.

Spacious 300 square foot half loft home

Spacious-300-Square-Foot-Half-Loft-Home-1 Spacious-300-Square-Foot-Half-Loft-Home-2 Spacious-300-Square-Foot-Half-Loft-Home-3 Spacious-300-Square-Foot-Half-Loft-Home-4 Spacious-300-Square-Foot-Half-Loft-Home-5 Spacious-300-Square-Foot-Half-Loft-Home-6 Spacious-300-Square-Foot-Half-Loft-Home-7 Spacious-300-Square-Foot-Half-Loft-Home-8 Spacious-300-Square-Foot-Half-Loft-Home-9 Spacious-300-Square-Foot-Half-Loft-Home-10

Tiny loft homes can be difficult when you’re divvying up 300 square feet or less. This Polish home has the best of both worlds with its half loft upstairs to be able to add some additional storage and take advantage of built ins underneath the stairs and beyond.

Polish architecture firm 3XA put together this simple home that has plenty of inventive storage built in, and majority of it built with plywood. For a space without much square footage, it is able to be split into different spaces quite nicely. Between living, dining, a workspace, sleeping and dressing/grooming; this small scale 29 square meter home is perfectly cozy.

Oficina 3 Estudio de Arquitectura and Daniel Carrillo has designed this Casa López / Lujano located in Tijuana, Mexico.

“The owners were very concerned about the environment, specifically about energy and resource efficiency. They wanted to maintain their privacy, but also directed us to provide an open, light-filled design, that responded to the hillside site. The owners also wanted a more controlled garden-type of an area and a more natural landscape on the rear of the lot. Sensible green measures were to be included, although the project budget would not allow “Grand” measures”, the architects says.

Strasbourg Hotel Restaurant by Studio Jouin Manku

Strasbourg-Restaurant-Jouin-Manku-01 Strasbourg-Restaurant-Jouin-Manku-02 Strasbourg-Restaurant-Jouin-Manku-03 Strasbourg-Restaurant-Jouin-Manku-04 Strasbourg-Restaurant-Jouin-Manku-05 Strasbourg-Restaurant-Jouin-Manku-06 Strasbourg-Restaurant-Jouin-Manku-07 Strasbourg-Restaurant-Jouin-Manku-08 Strasbourg-Restaurant-Jouin-Manku-09 Strasbourg-Restaurant-Jouin-Manku-10 Strasbourg-Restaurant-Jouin-Manku-11 Strasbourg-Restaurant-Jouin-Manku-12

Stunning!

Jouin Manku Studio have designed the interior of the restaurant at Strasbourg Hotel located in Strasbourg, capital of the Alsace region in France.

As conceived by Jouin Manku, the interior design for the hotel and brasserie is characterized by its authenticity and modernity, a particular idea of luxury and comfort inspired by the equestrian world, restrained and subtle.

Patrick Jouin and Sanjit Manku have expressed their vision of this former stud farm and historic site, in a design that is both elegant and simple. They have deliberately chosen to limit the range of materials used; solid wood, natural full hide leather and blackened or brushed metal to transpose the original life of this emblematic Strasbourg building into something resolutely contemporary and simple, whose architectural details attest to the studio’s creativity.

So beautiful! I absolutely love this.
This is “The Ufogel“. No matter where you are in the 45 m2 multi-functional Ufogel, you always have a view to wood and the sky – offering the sense of security and openness at the same time. It’s truly a wooden retreat – made by Peter Jungmann and located in Lienz, Austria.
