Cricket Trailers

This one came via kaufmann-mercantile. Never been a huge fan of the caravan / caravan holiday always preferring the classic VW camper (Splitty/Bay/Air Brick) or the simple pleasures of a tent, but got to say this might change things.

Designed by some bloke who used to work at Nasa (how cool) on the Space Station, then packed it all in and turned his hand to the humble Caravan...or Cricket Trailer...in his words ' an innovative lightweight, compact, and flexible small environment in which to travel and explore the world we live in.'

Looks pretty damn cool to me. More here and here

and in Acid Rambling news...

Maybe its down to being raised (fetched-up) in the North of England with weekends camping in the Lake District but whatever we're fond of the Acid Rambler round at Considered Design. Really what's not to like, Chocolate covered Kendal Mint Cake, the chance of bumping in to Chris Bonnington at some middle of no-where real ale, killer sunday lunch pub, boots at the door please Ladies and Gentlemen, children and dogs welcome. Anyway...where was I, yes, spotted this on on Inventory's blog, caused a bit of a stir amongst some of the locals, whatever, I think its ace. As usual, its the Japanese who are killing it.

New Catalan Genius

Not surprising given their providence with EMBT and Enric Mirrales, incredible, poetic work fromMiAS Arquitectes. There really is something quite unique about this part of the world and the Architects it produces. #inspiration.

In anticipation of a great long hot summer...and a bit of a Balearic moment for the hippy in us

a hidden gem

We had a site visit to a new project last week and it felt like such a magnificent opportunity to catch still life glimpse of part of a glamorous vancouver past. The house and gardens felt almost post apocalyptic and it was pretty special having a walk around a landscape that had been left undisturbed for 3 years, imagining the previous owners lifestyle, with some plants remaining as glimpses of a well cared, manicured garden. Hopefully we will be able to save some of those special species that have made up this garden in the past and add some more for future generations.
