A suspended bike roundabout

A suspended bike roundabout

The bicycle is more and more used in many countries around the world as a means of everyday transportation rather than simple means of entertainment. And it is only natural this happened: it is cheap, eco-friendly, fun, and much faster than a car or public transportation. Netherlands is famous for its bike-friendly roads, and it comes as no surprise that this country is the home of the Hovering: a suspended roundabout designed by IPV Delft and designed exclusively […]

The Jellyfish House: a beautiful villa with a floating pool

Located in Marbella, on the Mediterranean coast of Spain, the Jellyfish House’s neighboring buildings block its view onto the nearby sea. Appropriately, it was chosen to cantilever the house’s pool from its roof, so that the beach and sea can always be seen while sunbathing or swimming. A dream !

Frozen in time

Frozen in time

Moving on is always challenging.  But what about moving out? A place we once called home can remain forever empty, with all its memories dying inside.

PAINTINGS

Gardens by Richard Murphy

Gardens by Richard Murphy

One’s artwork is no more, no less, than the reflection of a veracious thing he or she sees in nature. That is why our philosophers, long ago, stated that everything we think, say and do has already been done and spoken by others in the past. Richard Murphy understood this and now, his creations are […]

Beautiful abstract paintings by David Munroe

Beautiful abstract paintings by David Munroe

‘I am a Glasgow born abstract expressionist and landscape painter. I take inspiration from the elements of the environment and from nature, including many unique aspects; weather, rusting metal, aging wood, water, dilapidated buildings, peeling paint, stones and rocks, the city lights at night.
