The sheer concrete facades of Estrela House stand out amongst the slightly ramshackle homes that surround it, on a suburban street in the Portuguese capital of Lisbon. Adding to the non-tradition, local architects #AiresMateus included a rooftop pool - surely an envy-inducing feature for the neighbours over those hot European summers 😎

Morning everyone!! Working upstairs in the study today, admiring my new rug. Can't decide whether to paint the floor or not. Black to match the hallway, white maybe or leave it as it is. It's just been sanded but not waxed. What d'ya reckon?
Those who know my love and obsessions will recognise at least two in these pieces: beetles and maps
The two just work together so damn well
The contours of the antique nautical charts with the gleaming shells of the beetles... yes... heaven
Both are new in my studio and available for sale (singly or as a pair), please let me know if you would like more info 🌘 “Yet all experience is an arch wherethro'
Gleams that untravell'd world whose margin fades” 🌚 (Lucanidae and Cetonidae beetles, nautical chart, antique entomology cases)
Gallery of Crescent House by @mwoodward_architecture - a singular, undulating sculpture that weaves through lush, coastal gardens and crescendoed with enchanting views across Sydney Harbour to Middle Head in the distance. 🌿
Inspired by the iconic city – Mumbai!! The monsoon waves breaking against the land-reclaimer. Mumbai is a city surrounded by seas and the iconic tourist attraction, Marine Drive is surrounded with a barrier, a rock shaped structure that looks like a Tetrapod. Inspired by this element we have scaled down this cast concrete sculpture to paperweight size just to highlight your work desk and give it a fun aesthetic, bringing Mumbai into your office and homes.

How cool is this?! 😍
Imagine having an indoor surfing at your home. Not only does it cherish the active lifestyle, it also contributes to the interior design; both when it is being used and when it is not being used. The one displayed in the video is situated in the L&T Mall in #Osnabruck#Germany . However, with a significant budget, it would probably also be possible to install it in a home.
