Alexander Owen architecture - CLEO'S PLACE

Alexander Owen architecture - CLEO'S PLACE - Gabriella Ruggieri & partners

 

It is by pure chance that I came across a photo of the CLEO'S PLACE project by Alexander Howen architecture (I was conducting research on a completely different topic), and the first thing that crossed my mind was... WOW what an explosion of Colors!!!
I set it aside and continued doing what I was doing, but... those colors really got stuck on my mind, and after some time I went to access that picture, found and set aside a few more so that I could present you this project.
The colors are bright, but with a balanced variety, happy and in harmony, giving this apartment a modern tone with a clear reference to the industrial past of the building. Lighting is another one of the aspects that make it unique, but it is the soul, in perfect #SaturdayRecycling style, that shines through the furniture, which make it really special.
I invite you to visit the site of these two architects: www.aoarchitecture.co.uk 

You will find some very interesting projects while discovering how many awards they received for their commitment to environmental sustainability. Deserved.

Old Sliding Barn Doors

Old Sliding Barn Doors - Gabriella Ruggieri & partners
MAGNOLIA MARKET - Chip and Joanna Gaines

This Saturday we are here to tell you about those sliding doors, often to be found in old barn, and how to creatively recycle them. The idea, as always, was inspired by all of you dear followers.
As you may be aware, it is not always the case for those who study architecture, design, furnishing or similar topics to be able to transform the theory into practice. But what we can be sure about is that Joanna and Chip Gaines, actually can and... they do it so well!
I challenge you to find one project of home restyling in which they were involved that would be nothing but marvelous.

That goes also for their website and all of their social media profiles. All one could is admire the great quality of its content.
The 6 photos we have chosen (visit the Gallery) will give you an idea on how to effectively recycle those old barn sliding doors and how they could blend with the rest of the furniture, giving it some character and uniqueness.
That same uniqueness, harmony, class and style we all look for when thinking about a home and not just a house, let aside our own personal preferences and regardless of how those have been incorporated and translated into the project itself.

We love to think that by reading through and watching these great photos, someone could feel inspired to understand the value of recycling and the contribution to save the planet while being Eco-friendly. Just like the many sides of a diamond, recycling comes in many forms and for sure not only with nice words and by simply sorting wasted materials by kind.
We kindly invite you to follow Joanna and Chip... you will enjoy so...
Till Next Time.

RECYCLED GLASSWORKS by Lauren Becker (238 Bonview St, San Francisco, CA 94110, U.S.

 
Recycled Glassworks specializes in the production of handmade, unique plates and bowls. Lauren Becker cuts every piece from used window-type glass, and kiln-fires it over molds that give it its new form, as well as a brand new life. They offers a variety of green #tableware, each rescuing some sort of glass otherwise destined for disposal. Old windows, doors, glass shelves, and tabletops now find their way to the dinner table with #amazing plates, bowls, and platters and each piece is unique and exclusive.
 

"In 1996, I started Recycled Glassworks because glass is a wonderful material, both for reuse and for tableware.

My work does not consume any brand-new materials (even my packing materials are reused). Yet the resulting dishes look new and fresh. Plenty of glass exists already; it does not degrade over time. Bottle glass has an established recycling infrastructure. Plate glass, however, ends up in landfill, unless it gets upcycled into a second life" (Lauren Becker)

What could be more exclusive than something that, as well as being #fabulous and unique, respects the #environment throughout its manufacturing processes?

architect: Richard Landry  
interior designer: Joan Behnke 
 
(Dr. Dre, the Compton born rapper is now the new owner of the mansion).
 
The mansion is actually quite sustainable with solar panels installed on the roof, rainwater recovery systems, waste reduction and recycling programs, energy-efficient lighting and appliances and eco-friendly building materials. 

The Old World-inspired imported limestone mansion on 4 acres is a truly palatial retreat, with reclaimed cobblestones in the motor court, waterfalls and ponds, and views of the Pacific Ocean. It has 5 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms. It was built with reclaimed ceiling beams, antiqued floorboards, antique doors, and marble fireplace surrounds.

Izmade: Margherita lamp

Born in 2012, #Izmade is a #sustainable #design collective from Turin, #Italy that specializes in the field of self-made eco-design #furniture and home accessories. More than 15,000 tomato sauce #cans are discarded by restaurants in #Turin every day according to IzmadeThis inspired the Collective to #reuse such a commonly wasted container for a unique design. By collecting cans from restaurants, Izmade’s team washes, cuts, and paints them eight different colors to create the #Margherita #lampshade. Other pieces of the product are also designed sustainably. The plywood used to make the stand come from trees found in Italy with layers bonded by a soybean adhesive instead of chemical glues. The scraps will come full circle and be used in a pizza oven. All electrical components (including the cables, the plug, and the switch) come from Italy.

Materials: #reused tomato can; plywood; colored fabric cables; water-based paint; energy-saving bulb.
