This viewing platform by Austrian architect Zamp Kelp, was created for the EXPO 2000 in Hanover, Germany. Curiously sited on the border of an old quarry, the platform juxtaposes a statuesque staircase made using quarry stone with a spectacular cantilevered glass and steel platform. Architectural studio Cooke Fawcett designed a 3.5-metre-wide and thirty-two-metre-long raised platform, that spans the width of a multistorey car park in Peckham, south-east London. Sited on the car park’s rooftop deck, the elevated steel and hardwood timber promenade was completed this year. Called the Peckham Observatory, it offers views across the London skyline as well as the capital’s much overlooked southern neighbourhoods.
Openness and spaciousness are two of the greatest features a modern driveway can have. They create a deluxe appearance, clearly showing off plenty of room for more than just one vehicle. A house with an elegant exterior needs a driveway that matches that style and contributes its own charm! Adding greenery to the driveway doesn’t tamper with its modern look, but it does bring an organic twist to it. Neutral shades are a clear indication of contemporary decor and concrete is the best choice when we’re seeking to bring neutrals into the outdoors. This driveway is as vast as it is gray, beautifully balanced by concrete and stone.
Since picket fences draw much attention to themselves with their classy look, they also draw much attention to your front yard. Make the best of it by creating a blooming yard. A charming little house with a calming gray interior is made magical by a really low white picket fence. The functionality of the fence is not a priority in this case – it’s all about the strong decorative value. Picket fences have been around for decades, growing in popularity with each year. Seeing an old-fashioned house with such a fence shouldn’t be a surprise but we’re still stunned about how much fresher a setting looks like, all because of a white fence. A house and a fence can blend together so well they seem to become one entity. The exterior feels synchronized in the most wonderful way, capturing the allure of simplicity.
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.
