Cladding Inspiration from Singapore

This photo was taken by Cory Bedford during a stopover in Singapore. While his family was resting in the hotel, Cory took the opportunity to get some inspiration and check out the local architecture. He loved the cladding work on this building and the sheer size of this, which you’d be unlikely to find in New Zealand.

We really love this award winning building and even though we have outgrown it, we are too attached to it to sell it.

Weekend Cabin in Washington Park

Amazing Tom Kundig Design

This is another magnificent Tom Kundig design. The exposed steel cantilever is enormous and you have to wonder how he can make this work. Judging by the photo it is pretty high up in the mountains and exposed to a lot of wind, so we are intrigued how the engineer stops the roof from blowing away….
