Hansen Instant Kitchen

If I lived in a studio apartment I could cope with this kitchen just fine, thank you.

Hansen Living won the kitchen and bath award at the ICFF Exhibition 2004 in New York. This experience inspired the design of the Hansen Living Instant Kitchen. It’s a kitchen unit particularly suited for small, studio-type dwellings.

Place it anywhere, all you need is to hook it up to a water supply and connect the electricity. The kitchen unit contains everything you need: oven, gas jets, electric power, refrigerator and water. To find a suitable name for it was easy: Instant Kitchen.

(Thanks Adam!)

Price depends on size and configuration.

Montecito Residence

There’s something to be said for stepping outside the box, and this home by Tom Kundig certainly makes a statement. The extreme slopes and angles are pretty spectacular.

(Your) Wall House / FAR frohn&rojas

Check it out, the innovative Wall House has drawing kits available for purchase.

Both an environmentally sensitive and spatially intriguing house, the Wall House breaks down the idea of the “traditional” exterior wall of a house and instead plays with new material layers to create dramatically differing aesthetic, sensorial and climate-based experiences within the house. Through the juxtaposition of these layers –folded exterior sheets of high-performance gauze-like netting (“Soft Skin”), an insulating translucent climate barrier of polycarbonate panels (“Milky Shell”), a rigid stacked wood truss structural system doubling as exposed shelving and storage (“Stacked Shelving”), and an inner nucleus of exposed concrete (“Concrete Cave”)– multiple views and relations to the surrounding nature, light, temperature and domestic objects are pleasantly experienced from both inside and outside the house.

  • Schematic Drawing Set: Schematic drawing set of the Wall House project, including the right to use the plans to construct a single unit. EUR $1.499 – USD$ 2.335.
  • Detailed Drawing Set: Detailed drawing set of the Wall House project, including the right to use the plans to construct a single unit. EUR $4.999 – USD$7.788.
  • Detailed Drawing Set w/ Custom Climate Concept: Detailed drawing set of the Wall House project together with climate simulation for the location of your choice with recommendations and custom material specifications. The set also includes the right to use the plans to construct a single unit. EUR $7.999,00 – USD$12.462

If you haven’t heard of
planetreuse.com, it’s worth checking out.

“Planet Reuse is the world’s first website that connects buyers and seller of reused and reclaimed construction materials and equipment from around the world and allows them to purchase products online.”

Aesop store by Stuido Ilse

Check out this interior of the first London outlet of Aesop designed by Studio Ilse. Despite the weird-ish green walls, I’m really liking the clean antique/apothecary feel. There’s also an amazing mirrored cabinet (not pictured) that I might want very badly.

DURAT Countertops and Basins

These pictures have me thinking about expanding my horizons when it comes to kitchen and bath surfaces.

“DURAT is a solid polyester based material used for custom made surfaces in public and private interiors. It contains recycled plastics and is itself 100% recyclable.

The sophistication of the DURAT material lies in its silky warm feeling and the interesting impression of depth in its finish.

DURAT is extremely durable and can be renewed by slight sanding. The material is very resistant to wear, humidity, and various kinds of chemicals.”

The Slat House

Check out the massive skylight/window and polished concrete surface…I’d move in there, no questions asked.

“Extension of a small semi-detached family home on a large plot in Blackheath. The modular timber extension wraps around the side of the semi-detached house; it peeps through the adjacent trees of the rear garden and provides access onto the side terrace.

The extension provides a fourth bedroom and second bathroom on the first floor. The ground floor has been dramatically reorganised providing a new playroom and a library for the client’s extensive collection of books and fine art prints. The kitchen and dining area is re-housed in the extension and benefits from unobstructed views of the garden. The interiors are fitted with bespoke furniture and storage space designed by Turner Castle.”

Wow…if this is indeed a forest superintendent’s cabin, I might rethink my day job.

Here’s a couple of interesting staircases by Jordivayreda Project Team.

This smattering of 2×12 shiny tiles with the matte green is lovely.

Casa Dejardin Hendric

I don’t know anything about this home other than it’s super modern and simple. Especially interesting to see the assembly/building photos…and take a look at the staircase- it’s one whole unit (you can see it in the pre-paint stage in the assembly photos).

Update: Thanks Katelijne for emailing a link to Belgian architect Pierre Hebbelinck’s site where there are more photos and information.
