I do understand the creative use of space, usually a square room and things are deployable from the wall, but what I don’t get is how cleverly unique this little house is. This house is called “Keret House” and it was designed by Jakub Szczęsny from Centrala where he challenged himself in making a house in-between 2 buildings. The house will be built in Poland this September as a studio for the writer Etgar Keret which ...

It turns of it is not a set by the genius mind of George Lucas, it is an actual city located in southern Tunisia with the same name. This city appears on Star Wars movies and it turns out that most desert scenes were actually shot in Tunisia. I think the place alone ...

I’ve always been intrigued by architecture, the birth child of art and science. It never ceases to amaze me how the human mind can crete such beautiful structures, but this is beyond beautiful its just something else. What you see before you is the Singapore ArtScience Museum (a.k.a The Hand Of Singapore). The structure was made to resemble a human hand welcoming guests to view all that the museum has to offer. The design is ...

I’ve always dreamed of a place “far far away” from the complications of life and bustling streets and hopefully share it with someone special. My only problem is, cabins or little houses are old, I don’t want to rewind the clock in time, but I wanted to see the combination of both. Anyway, someone actually made it! Located in Switzerland, this was previously a shelter and now is a modern house sitting high above the ...

I believe we’ve seen an UP replica that actually flies about a year and a half ago, it was light and not as accurate compared to what you’re about to see. This is the work of a man so obsessed with UP, but again who isn’t and like me, I watched it at least 6 times and it never gets old. His love of UP made him create a replica of the house, every detail is ...

Green and I are obsessed over architecture as you can probably tell, but we also love anything with sharp edges. I came across this amazing cinema called Kinémax and which such a great name you can’t go wrong. The cinema is located inside a theme park in France called Futurescope along with other thrill rides. What strikes me most about the cinema is of course its amazing look, all those sharp edges shaping up crystals ...

Here’s a very cool piece of architecture that I came across and had to share, the Zero gravity room. In a bustling world, people try to shrink stuff, just like the one apartment rooms that I’m pretty sure you saw in Japan where the kitchen, table, bed and whatever else can be folded back to the wall. This one however is quite different, built by Nicholas Blake and M&A volunteers, this structure is a clever ...

Now to the technical side, the hotel appears to be floating because it sits ...

I’ve always been intrigued by Brazil, the famous carnival, the gorgeous beaches, and pretty much everything else associated with it. This loft designed by Fernanda Marques just adds to the intrigue with its gorgeous wooden structures and stone walls that seem to just seep in from nature naturally blending in with its environment. Brazil is one of those rare places where outdoor living is possible all year round so I really love the ...

While browsing through The Cool Hunter I came across an article featuring this spectacular Nightclub in Abu Dhabi. The nightclub called Allure, (yes they have their own website) is located on Yas Island in Yas Hotel. Everything about this place screams perfection. From the modern and clean design to the subtle colors that allow the lighting to just pop out. But what makes this nightclub special isn’t just the unbelievable design, but also the fact that it ...
