Sitting next to an infinity edge pool, the spacious pool house contains an informal dining space along with a full-fledged kitchen and other private spaces. The dining area flows into the terraced garden and pool deck outside thanks the use of large, sliding glass doors that seamlessly connect the interior with the outdoors. As far as the green roof itself, architects had to request the city for special permissions as existing construction and water drainage norms simply did not permit for the lovely addition. A curved wooden roof also plays into the overall schematic and cleverly hides the project’s equipment and additional support even as it allows natural light to flood indoors. Additional rainwater simply drains away from the green roof and flows to a natural creek nearby while a large fireplace provides a warm and striking focal point as the sun sets and dark Texas nights take over.
The Balad comes in two different versions, the H38 outdoor lamp that is slightly larger and its more mobile, smaller cousin the H25 outdoor lamp. Even with its larger radius, the H38 is still easily transportable and can be charged to give you 14 hours of continuous use. Of course, if you have a power outlet close by, then you will not have to worry about charging it as well! The unique LED technology of the lamp gives you two different brightness settings and you can even alternate between a warm 4000k light and a colder 6000k light. The smaller H25 offers you all the same features as the H38, but has a battery life of around 12 hours. Two different metal stands combined with the colorful variants of Balad allow you to create multiple lighting compositions for your serene backyard, small courtyard or urban balcony.
Another Norwegian lookout, Seljord Watchtower was designed by Oslo and Bodø-based Rintala Eggertsson Architects. The watchtower was partly conceived and installed as a tribute to ‘Selma’, a legendary sea serpent living in the adjacent lake. The Seljord municipality is often visited by tourists, locals and avid bird-watchers. The twelve-metre-high tower has a periscope-like appearance and three lookout points: one at the tower’s apex, looking across Seljord lake, and two en route to the top. Also designed by Saunders Architecture, Stokke Forest Stair in Øye Sculpture Park, Norway, was completed in 2012. A clever woodland installation, the stairway provides the visitor with an elevated vantage point above the forest’s floor. The Stokke Forest Stair was transported by helicopter, and a careful analysis of the site meant no trees were felled in order to accommodate the structure.
