Black & White Apartment, Moscow, Russia by Crosby Studios

crosby-studios-moscow-everything-withatwist-01

Crosby Studios is an all purpose design office active in Moscow. The apartment was originally built in 1900, when people started to come to Moscow from all over Russia.

It is located in the centre of the city, a vibrant city with currently over 10 million inhabitants.  Although it occupies as small as 64 sq.m. of space it seems that the apartment is bigger.

The black & white elemetns are evident, being inspired form Brooklyn style studios, NYC. The apartment has an industrial look, yet it can be identified as mild, smooth for a family to live in. Enjoy.

Zilvar House by ASGK Design

zilvar-house-by-asgk-design-gessato-1

Located in Eastern Bohemia, the Zilvar house by ASGK Design is a calm retreat from the modern world, with a form influenced by the nature it embraces.

Designed for a young family of three, the site of the house features a large oak tree, and the imaginative 4 year-old son of the client felt therefore the massing should look like an arthropod reaching towards this tree.

While many firms would view this as a cute yet impractical request, ASGK decided it was a brilliant narrative for siting the home and went with it.

Adventurers Relax in Hammocks Hanging Hundreds of Feet Above Ground

1

One century ago, fierce battles broke out in the shadow of Monte Piana in the Italian Dolomites as WWI began. The 18,000 young soldiers who lost their lives at that site were honored this past week at the 2015 Highline Meeting Monte Piana, an annual event that unites young people from all over the world through their shared passions for adventure and the sport of highlining.

Since the first meeting was organized by co-founders Alessandro d’Emilia and Armin Holzer in 2012, thrill-seekers have gravitated towards the Dolomites each year for the chance to slackline between mountain peaks, hang out in hammocks suspended hundreds of feet above the ground, and meet like-minded people.

This time, however, the event was even more poignant because of the 100-year anniversary of the conflicts near Monte Piana. To remember those who died on the field a century ago, Ticket to the Moon coordinated a special “Rainbow Warriors” session as a symbol of peace and a tribute to the past. 26 athletes came together to sing, laugh, and lounge in 17 colorful hammocks strung up high in the sky.

“Just a hundred years ago, winters up here were characterized by bombs, grenades, and lots of pain,” d’Emilia and Holzer explained. “Our idea was to re-experience Monte Piana in friendship and peace with each other, accompanied by kindhearted feelings during the day, and lulled to sleep at night by magical silence.”

Like last year, Vienna-based photographer Sebastian Wahlhütter was there to photograph the Highline Meeting, which kicked off on September 10 and just wrapped up on September 15. Highlining, he told us, is an “incredible experience.”

He shared: “I can remember the first time going to sit on a highline, and it was really an intense experience. Once you are in the hammock, it’s perfect, and you get a feeling of freedom; even though it’s so exposed, relaxing is not a problem.”

Overall, Wahlhütter says he’s grateful to be part of such a unique event. “This is a gathering and special experience for everyone participating,” he wrote to us in an email. “But the hammock action is also a symbol and a tribute to the past, and should remind us that there were also other times at this place when people were killing each other. In a way, the whole concept can also be reduced to ‘building bridges’ instead of fighting each other.”

Artist’s Gorgeous Mural on Sunken Ship Changes with Tide Levels

1

Last spring, we marveled over artist Sean Yoro (aka Hula) and his gorgeous seaside murals that were painted while he was on a paddle board. Now, he’s recently completed another stunning painting using the same unconventional practice.

Hula found an old sunken ship off the coast of Hawaii and transformed the rusty vessel into an aquatic art gallery with his piece titled Ho’i Mai (translation: Come Back). The larger-than-life artwork features a woman whose head and arm emerge from the water’s edge, reaching towards the sky.

This hyperrealistic portrait changes depending on the height of the tide. When the water is low, the woman’s body is visible, and it appears as though she’s floating a serene abyss.

As the water rises, however, her face becomes hidden, and the hand stands as an eerie beacon to those riding the ocean waves.

Here are a few more of Hula’s most recent seaside murals:
