Their latest project, the <a href="http://www.klopfarchitecture.com/project/los-altos-new-home/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Los Altos New Residence</a>, is a project inspired by mid-century modern homes that&#8217;s complete with the perfect indoor/outdoor living scenario to enjoy California weather.
A low sloping roof with clerestory windows fills the open living space with natural light while making it feel massive and grand. Sliding glass doors open to expand the home’s interior footprint into the outdoor space. Klopf Architecture partnered with Outer Space Landscape Architects to achieve the beautifully landscaped yard and outdoor spaces. Wood siding was used both inside and out creating a cohesive feel and tying the spaces together. White walls and white oak floors are paired with walnut cabinetry and furnishings. Just off the kitchen is a

                                If you&#8217;ve ever wondered what it would be like riding on top of a bazooka, look no further than the <a href="http://sol-motors.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Sol Motors Pocket Rocket</a>, an aggressively styled &#8220;noped&#8221; hailing from Stuttgart engineered to rocket forward at speeds up to 50mph powered by an 8.5hp electric motor.
Making its official debut at the INTERMOT International Motorcycle Fair in Cologne, the SOL Motors Pocket Rocket’s unusual large aluminum tube design is functionally driven, encompassing the noped’s removable 220V battery power source and an internal computer compatible with both iOS and Android apps. Each end is capped by LED lights: a 6-bulb headlamp up front, and a circular array of rear brake lights and turn signals in the rear. The design is reminiscent of Vanmoof e-bicycles, sharing a similar large tubular top tube design, exaggerated even further into artillery-sized proportions. Hydraulic braking system with regenerative brakes helps this compact personal vehicle eke out a range of up

Designing on Unstable Ground #2: an Interview with Yoshihiro Kato Atelier from Japan

            <img src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/cf/cf72cb5796b3010b6fcc6663016c14e4.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=1200" border="0" /><p>We are never so aware of architecture as when it breaks down. Our lives require that buildings slip into the background, that we can trust their promise to shelter. But when the ground trembles, when cracks appear in the walls, and the foundation itself shakes, suddenly the frailty of this promise emerges in stark relief. An earthquake is the black mirror to architecture: the <em>memento mori </em>of its claim to <em>firmitas.</em></p>

                                Nordic design studios are known for their simple shapes and clean, reductive patterns. The industry here, whether in interior design or architecture, favors natural products and practical designs. Given the extreme seasons, with close to full days of sunlight in the summer and prolonged hours of night in the winter, it is necessary for inner space to be comfortable and practical, warm and bright.
Finnish design can take the next step to prominence when it breaks away from the Nordic typecast, and it does so best when it is able to touch on history and the value of freedom and equality in Finnish society today. In this regard, the Finnish design studio Marimekko has made great leaps in taking their designs to a personal level. Instead of cool tones and simple shades that are trademark of Nordic design, Marimekko’s aesthetic is warm and bright, playful and homey. At Helsinki Design Week

                                3 Britannia Wharf is a minimalist home located in London, United Kingdom designed by <a href="http://paolocossu.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Paolo Cossu Architects</a>. The residence is a compact, split-level, two-bedroom house that is one of four houses converted in 1994 from an original factory warehouse situated on the banks of the Regents Canal.
Paolo Cossu Architects were approached by the homeowners to individually reconfigure the internal layouts of the four houses and develop new second-floor roof extensions with terraces. Numbers 3 and 4 Britannia Wharf have now been completed and number 2 is currently under construction. 3 Britannia Wharf was designed and developed with an economy of visual, spatial and structural means. A simple palette of oak, marble, and lacquered timber paneling, provide the clients with a timeless interior that enhances the quality of the existing spaces. The new spatial configuration and surface treatments enhance the penetration of natural light throughout the house subtly playing with the
