Island Residence Peter Rose + Partners
Nestled in the richly wooded grounds of a narrow strip of land on the island of Chappaquiddick near Edgartown, Massachusetts, this single-family residence is part of a collection of environment- and landscape-centric interventions that blur the boundaries between structures and landscape, and between inside and outside. Comprised of four structures – a 6,300 SF main residence, a 630 SF garage, a 270 SF storage shed, and a 130 SF boat house – the site is bounded by the ocean to the west and by a well-protected, shallow bay to the east. The project replaced a house, garage/guest house, and a long driveway running through a meadow, previously located on the site.

RMJ House was designed by Felipe & Alexandre Bueno creating a contemporary family home of 550 sq.m. “To understand the needs of the client, without dramatically changing the natural contour of the land, we divided the program into two floors.”, they explained. In the upper floor are the main activities of the house, leaving the garage, laundry and cellar on the street level. The result is noteworthy. Enjoy.

The easiest way to make popcorn. (vine by Kevin Parry)
In this song by Hawaii-based reggae musician Mike Love, a seemingly random assortment of syllables slowly grows into a song over a period of three minutes. The song takes 12 loops to build before you can discern all of the lyrics plus layers of harmony, incredible considering a single mistake would essentially ruin the entire thing. It’s fun to listen all the way through first without any sort of reference, but if you’re interested, redditor Cybot made this handy chart to better visualize what Love is doing.
Walking up to this traffic you need to greet by a fist bump otherwise you wouldn’t be able to cross the street. The project called the Walkbump was created in Los Angeles by Alfredo Adán.
The solution proposed by the guy, except of being interesting and raising interest of passers-by, is also more hygienic than the standard button.
A new 3D printer with the unique feature to design and make objects and devices with electronic components - video embedded below:
Voxel8 exists to disrupt the design and manufacture of electronic devices by providing new functional materials with a novel 3D printing platform. Desktop 3D printers today are constrained to printing thermoplastics or UV resins. Using Voxel8’s 3D printer, you can co-print matrix materials such as thermoplastics and highly conductive silver inks enabling customized electronic devices like quadcopters, electromagnets and fully functional 3D electromechanical assemblies.
For writers, it’s important that they sometimes escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life and focus on their craft. The Hut on Stilts was built with this type of creative getaway in mind. Designed by architect Nozomi Nakabayashi, whose client is a writer, the eight-square-meter cabin stands four meters above the ground and among secluded woodlands in Dorset, England.
Nakabayashi’s timber structure is split into two levels and uses reclaimed telegraph poles as its stilts. The interior is minimalist and includes a few necessities: a wood-burning stove, a writing desk, and a bed hidden beneath the floorboards. n.
Because it has a modest quantity of furnishings, it’s only intended for a night’s stay, and for its guests to be completely undisturbed during that time. This also makes it the perfect setting to foster creativity—a nearby lake, passing wildlife, and starry night skies are fantastic sources of inspiratio
