There are 10 new designs including armchairs, occasional tables, and mirrors, all of which are subtly influenced by different eras of Australian design. The collection, which uses an array of industrial materials like tubular steel and glass/brass/pewter finishes as well as jewel-toned velvet and classic marble, is sophisticated, glamorous and youthful all at once.
The Shu-Ying Armchair, with its luxurious gathered upholstery and curved frame, looks like it could be set against the backdrop of the Roaring 1920s in Shanghai or Sydney.
The Caristo Armchair is a modern interpretation of the wingback chair that would be found in Palm Springs or a harbor-side home.
Michelle is a family of mirrors that are related by its materials: steel, smoked mirror and marble.
The Mohana tables are a series of modern tables that combine marble
You’ve painstakingly picked out your paint color and chosen the perfect bathroom tile. Now it’s time to let your builder take over the details, right? Some production builders utilize a fixed price model after the estimating phase, but it’s not always the case. Building a home yourself or using an individual contractor could leave you on the hook for extra costs. After all, there are some things you just can’t plan. Whether it’s a weather delay or inaccurate plans, incidentals can really blow your budget. Knowing what areas to plan for and leaving a little padding in your new build budget can keep you on track.
Keep an eye out for these common new build budget busters and talk to your contractor or builder about the game plan.

Text description provided by the architects. The idea was to generate a large shadow affecting the least amount of soil, as would a tree, spreading with lush foliage over its main stem.
In order to achieve it, the loads rise, where with great robustness it spreads its branches to the north, east and west (but not to the south), thus tripling its surface in relation to the ground floor, and then transferring them in three supports, each one transferring on average one hundred and twenty tons to the ground.
The White interior and ceiling come to cover the musculature that makes all this possible. Reinforced concrete is not a further decision to materialize, it
About a month before he unveiled his eighth album Ye in June, Kanye West re-entered architectural conversation with the unexpected and mostly unexplained announcement that he intends to hire architects and industrial designers to staff an architecture practice connected to his Yeezy brand. An outspoken fan and admirer of contemporary architecture, Kanye’s fashion and design projects have been a major focus for him since shortly after the prodigious producer started making his own rap albums. Kanye’s architectural ambitions have been an interesting factor in the relationship between architecture and rap culture, which seems to be just coming into focus through programs like the Hip Hop Architecture Camps organized by Michael Ford’s Urban Arts Collective, and the research of Sekou Cooke. Architecture and rap music have influenced each other in ways we’re just starting to notice—with the connection between the two even revealed as consciously and conspicuously

Text description provided by the architects. This project was born from a competition launched in 2007 by the developer Bremond in partnership with ING Real Estate, for the creation of an exemplary district on the Ile Saint-Denis.
