Txai House by Studio MK27, situated in Itacaré, near Salvador de Bahia, Brazil. A masterful example of fine Brazilian modernism. The 7,000 square foot house offers a radical experience of integration between the inside and out. It does not look like it is a place to drink coconut water, swaying in the hammocks. It is one. The tropical atmosphere of Bahia impregnates all of the spaces perfectly.

Do the Green Thing has teamed up with World Wildlife Fund-UK to curate the ‘Everyday Things’ collection: fifteen artists from around the world were asked to repurpose daily objects and show how creativity can lead the way in encouraging people to live a greener lifestyle. When artist Mac Premo was asked to contribute to the collection, he partnered with Sanford Shapes to create skateboard decks made entirely out of material lifted from a dumpster. Mac then made this film which shows the process and inspiration behind the Bucket Board.

The architectural reconstruction and conversion of antiquated buildings, particularly in instances where their use is obsolete or outmoded, is a sublime art form. The architect’s creative expression is arguably tested to a much greater extent when he/she is presented with the dilemma (and challenge) of improving and repurposing an already existing historic structure. Retaining and augmenting the connection between past and present is an important premise, especially in a world where the new is all too often coveted and the old repeatedly disposed of.

We love good food and we love to cook, so naturally we were thrilled when we discovered that Berlin-based publisher Gestalten released a new book entitled Kitchen Kulture that celebrates the kitchen as the new living room, a space for social gathering, collaborative cooking, event hosting, and communal dining.
The room that used to be a service area relegated to the back of the house is now the multi-functional hub of the home. Who needs some inspiration on how to transform their kitchen into a lively space should definitely dip into this book. It offers creative kitchen solutions for any size and budget, uncovering the full potential of today’s kitchen.
