ArchDaily has taken note of the fact that in older movies, only villains lived in cool houses (the American Psycho, Jackie Treehorn, and the bad guy from North by Northwest). Nowadays, thanks to Tony Stark and some others, the good guys get to have good taste too.
ArchDaily article here, including some great photos of legendary modern houses.

Joseph Dirand Architecture is an architecture and interior design firm based out of Paris. I stumbled across their work wile doing an image hunt for Balmain stuff and was drawn into the flagship store that they design for the brand in Paris. The interiors combine a great mix of minimal and luxury and have been keeping me inspired for days. I’m also really loving the photography on their site which was shot by photographer Adrien Dirand.

Roman and Willams is an amazing New York based interior designer firm that’s behind such projects like the Ace Hotel and Standard hotel in New York, among other things. Last night I spent an hour or so getting lost in their portfolio and for some reason when I woke up this morning all I wanted to do was tear my house apart, go thrift shopping and re-do the whole place…

David Lang sent me a link to this video on the Planet Green website about this amazing 300 square foot apartment in Hong Kong. All the walls are built on tracks and what looks like a one room house can basically transform into any room; kitchen, bathroom, beadroom, etc. Check out the whole video on Planet Green.

Architecture blog Dezeen posted some photos and info about the new London offices for one of Defgrip’s favorite design firms Wieden + Kennedy. Featherstone Yong, a London studio is responsible for the project in which they re-vamped an old brewery across the street from the old Wieden + Kennedy London offices. “utilizing the height of the existing shell to create a series of mezzanines and crows’ nests for creative contemplation. These mezzanines allow for visual connection between larger workspaces and more intimate ones”

I compiled a collection of my favorite interior/architecture photos that I’ve saved over the past year or so. I’m always collecting image that inspire me and I thought it would be cool to do some big inspiration dumps like this once in a while. I did the black and white post a few months back, so here’s the second post in what I hope to be a on-going series.

I’m gonna keep on the Julius Shulman thing because a) he was a badass and b) KCRW in Los Angeles just did a spectacular radio tribute to him featuring interviews with his high profile friends as well as Julius himself.
I learned a few new and surprising things about The Man.

On my way home from New York City the other day, I picked up the May 11th issue of New York Mag to find a wonderful article on home design. The article featured seven different peoples apartments in the NY area and is extremely inspiring. There’s a great mix of minimal and widely eclectic styles and every one’s house who was featured in the article had something that made me want to set up my interior style… I don’t know what it is, but I think I need to go thrift shopping more…
Check out some of the images after the jump and click here for the full article… If you like what you see, pick up the magazine because big glossy photos always beat small jpgs!

I’m excited for this documentary on John Lautner! The trailer got me pumped because you can see glimpses of some of my favorite Lautner houses: James Goldstein’s house (which you will definitely recall from the Jackie Treehorn scene in The Big Lebowski, as well as a Charlie’s Angels movie), Chemosphere (also in a Charlie’s Angels movie), and the Garcia House on Mulholland which I came across on a hike recently.
Those of you in Southern Cal can check it out at the Newport Beach Film Festival.
Watch the trailer here.

Loft Life posted a tour of Photographer Andreas Larsson’s minimal Chicago loft. I’m really drawn in by the basic color palette, the black floors, his simple furniture choices and that little bulb hanging next to his bed is dope.
Check out the loft tour here and check out Larsson’s photos here.

One of the many (and one of my favorite) architecture/environmental design sites Materialicious recently switched up their site from a traditional blog, to more of a image blog. They seem to be posting way more and have some great links.

I’m excited for my subscription issues of Apartamento to start showing up. Rebelling against the usual formula for interiors magazines, Apartamento will skip the perfectly-styled joints and feature the real-life ones. Looks like something that even dirtbag BMXers could relate to.
Check the Apartamento website here.

I love this low-cost prefab house in Colina, Chile. I also love this quote from its feature on ArchDaily: “With regard to materials, the building recognizes the inherent uncertainty and inevitability of weathering as a continuation of the building process rather than as a force antagonistic to it” which basically means “it’s gonna get rusty, so embrace the rust”.
Check out the story and photos here.

Check out this mean little crib in between some mammoth old buildings in Poland.
The space looks a lot bigger than the exterior would suggest, even with the dark interior. Story and photos here.
