New Forest House by PAD Studio

New Forest House by PAD Studio | Architecture and Architectural Jobs | Scoop.it

British architects and interior designers PAD Studio have designed the New Forest Park House, a contemporary and eco-friendly home located in the south of England.

 

According to the architects: “The dwelling is set within an 18.5 acre plot, located adjacent to ancient woodland and heath, within the New Forest National Park. The massing, form and orientation of the new building has been carefully conceived to minimise the impact on the site and its surroundings. The main dwelling and annexe building both have low rise green roofs. The buildings are orientated to maximise solar gain, using ground source heat pump technology and a log boiler for heating and hot water requirements."

The design also incorporates rain water harvesting, grey water recycling and a natural swimming pond to further increase biodiversity within the site. The materials used throughout are sustainable, durable and in harmony with the site and its surroundings.

Beautiful Sand Drawings by Jim Denevan

Beautiful Sand Drawings by Jim Denevan | Architecture and Architectural Jobs | Scoop.it
Using a rake or a piece of driftwood, California artist Jim Denevan shapes monumental works on the sandy beaches of the world, spending hours on huge and often complex geometric patterns destined to be washed away at the turn of the tide.

 

Despite their accuracy, his designs are the improvised work of the moment and are executed freehand, without plan or measurement. Photographs of his ephemeral works are in major collections, including that of New York’s Museum of Modern Art. ‘It’s like drawing on a piece of paper,’ he says, ‘except my piece of paper happens to be several miles across.’ A single drawing can involve the need for him to cover 40 km or more.
