Mountain West – 2010
Allandale House is an A-frame(s) house for an idiosyncratic connoisseur and her family. Along with its occupants, the Allandale House also provides space for an eccentric collection of artifacts that resist straightforward classification. Wines, rare books, stuffed birds and an elk mount are among the relics on display in this small vacation house.
The house links three horizontal extrusions of “leaning,” or asymmetrical A-frames. The skinny A-frame on the western side contains the library, wine cellar and garage. The wide A-frame in the center of the house is dedicated to two floors of bedrooms and bathrooms. The medium A-frame on the eastern side consists of living, kitchen and dining areas. The house aims to undermine the seeming limitations of a triangular section by augmenting and revealing the extreme proportion in the vertical direction, and utilizing the acutely angled corners meeting the floor as moments for thickened walls, telescopic apertures and built-in storage.
Good Morning People, I don’t know but I’m playing around with how to show off photos, So here is one Grid based idea I had. I think it’s awesome that you can click on an image and you’ll see it big, Do we like?! Tell me! Wanna know!
We’ve got to give it to Ben Wilson– it takes plenty of ingenuity to make a recumbent bike look cool. Not only did Mr. Wilson do that with his Artikcar Bike, he made the recumbent bike very much en vogue. Artikcar is a four-wheeled recumbent-style bike with a bubbly rider profile that is laced with bright neon lighting. Beyond its bold design sensibility, Wilson’s Artikcar is as much about safety as it is about style. That neon wrapping will ensure that the drivers you share the road with will be well aware of your presence. We salute you, Ben Wilson, we’d love to have your Artikcar in our own garage.
