All the cool stuff we've been inspired by lately in the design world.
DeFREITAS ARCHITECTS is doing some nice work in San Diego including a few multi-family projects that we’ve got mad respect for.
-thanks to Kevin
We’re big huge fans of sensible modern projects brought in with cost-effective budgets. So when we got our eyeballs over to the Moonlight Duplex blog we were thrilled to find a handsome residence x 2 built for $115/sf. Big props to Salas Design Workshop in Austin.
-thanks to Tony
Tridente Architects out of Melbourne Australia are doing some smashing work, most notably the Henley Beach Residence, rrrrroww!
-thanks to Martin R.
Vivian Maier took more than 100,000 photos during her lifetime but never showed them to anyone (in fact she didn’t even develop most of them). Now that’s she’s gone and her photos have been discovered, some say she may rank among the top street photographers of the 20th century.

The diagram below is a fascinating 24 hour observation of all of the large aircraft flights in the world, condensed down to 1 minute and 12 seconds. Note the movement of night and day with subsequent change to the flight patterns.

It took us about 2.5 seconds to become huge fans of the HowdyHeidi site.

The Design Addict blog is great for feeding the habit.
We’ve also been enjoying the reads on thinkBIG.
-thanks to Janet J
The Chool is not only a cool little design but it’s got a clever video to go along with it. Props to the designers over at Slam who know how to market something.
-thanks to Ramiro
Artists John Grade has a new portfolio of work that continues to develop the relationship between built-object and nature. We like.
-thanks to John
The 3:1 table by TJOKEEFE design studio is an über hot piece of design. We want one.

This is very cool. Johnston Printing out of Spokane Washington starting putting together a biannual publication called PROOF! to cover good modern design in their corner of the world and at the same time get the company out there in the world. We’ve taken a tour through the latest publication and it’s a fantastic tour of the modern architecture of eastern Washington. Get your free copy here. Big huge kudos to the team at Johnston Printing – stellar idea!
-thanks to CK and Andrei
If you haven’t seen the vid on the hand-powered table saw yet, it’s worth a watch.
-thanks to Brian T.
Digital sketchbooks have been catching our eye lately and we’ve actually been spending a fair bit of time looking through some inspiring examples. Check out the digital sketchbooks of Richard Rano and Trevor Dykstra. Good stuff.
-thanks to Richard & Trevor
With the real estate and construction loan landscape changing drastically in the last several years, we’re always scouting for new/better ways to finance good construction. We were thrilled to see this consumer guide to Guide to Green Mortgages / Energy Efficient Mortgages. It’s about time the banks got on board with lending models that encourage sustainability.
