Architect Redesigns A 100 Year Old Home Into A Calming Modern Home (House Tour)

A beautiful dance of soft curves and geometric lines, Lee House is a study in balance and restraint where the architect redesigns a 100 year old home. Angelo Candalepas, director of Candalepas Associates and the architect of Lee House, assumes a very conceptual approach to architecture – evident in the house he has crafted. “What we have tried to do is seek aspects of perfection in form that enable us to encourage something in the human condition which isn't able to be seen, but is perhaps only able to be felt,” reflects Angelo. Here, the architect redesigns a 100 year old home in Sydney’s Watsons Bay. The front façade appears as a humble, one-storey traditional cottage that sits in contrast to the two-storey, modern, geometric façade at the rear. The way the architect redesigns a 100 year old home was a step away from the client’s original brief – removing the existing cottage and creating a large home. After many discussions, the client developed a modesty about their brief. “It meant we could work with an incredibly quiet house… something that is purely an interior design,” says Angelo. The architect redesigns a 100 year old home with a material palette that is simultaneously robust, raw and refined. Timber flooring and ceilings make the space feel spacious yet cosy and is also used in the kitchen for joinery, the dining table and the base of the island bench. This is complemented by the heavy use of concrete for walls, stairs and detailing, softened by round curves. Styling is dominated by minimalist furniture and neutral tones. The effect is a layered home that combines organic moments such as the soft curves of the concrete and circular skylight with the geometric nature of the timber flooring, sharp stairs and rectilinear furniture. When reflecting on the use of curved concrete, Angelo comments on the way materials can evoke something deeper than their physicality. “Through the softness of the concrete and how light might be absorbed in it, one may imagine that beyond the surface something denser or more real might exist in it.” In this way, the architect redesigns a 100 year old home with a tangible sense of intimacy. A day bed offers a sense of private retreat, while the garden and courtyard imbue a similar mood, enriched with lush greenery, and a stone-paved alfresco dining area surrounded by the manicured garden. The architect redesigns a 100 year old home in a way that honours yet rejuvenates a beautiful house – offering a deep reflection on heritage, balance, intimacy and the power of materials. 00:00 - Introduction to the 100 Year Old Home 01:02 - The Original Concept 02:13 - Seeking Perfection Through Form 03:00 - Behind The Material Palette 04:30 - The Relationship Between Builder and Architect 05:26 - Experiencing the Intimacy of the Home 06:50 - Favourite Aspects For more from The Local Project: Instagram – https://www.instagram.com/thelocalproject/ Website – https://thelocalproject.com.au/ Print Publication – https://thelocalproject.com.au/publication/ Hardcover Book – https://thelocalproject.com.au/book/ The Local Project Marketplace – https://thelocalproject.com.au/marketplace/ To subscribe to The Local Project's Tri-Annual Print Publication see here – https://thelocalproject.com.au/subscribe/ Photography by Rory Gardiner.

Oldtimer builds rustic ecovillage in US's southernmost point

About 40 years ago, William bought 1.25 acres for $6000 on the Big Island of Hawaii and began growing his own food and building his own shelters. He was inspired to leave his native Wisconsin for a place where it would be easier to live off the land. Today he lives with only solar power (with an array built from recycled panels), without a car (he uses an electric trike or carpools), without a job (except for rent from his self-built shelters) and he grows much of his own food, including coconuts, mangos, citrus, macadamia nuts, pumpkins and a huge vegetable garden. He has built a dozen structures on his property, using recycled materials and spending next to nothing to build by hand. His wooden main house is half greenhouse with windows of an ocean view that he built for $500 to $1000. Most of his shelters are topped with green roofs, including a 2-story stone yurt with a lush green roof, an underground music studio lined with local rock and topped with vegetation, a bamboo quonset hut, and two green-roofed converted truck homes. "Nature does a pretty good job," explains William. "These living roofs... you know, I wanted everything like that, 'cause it makes everything invisible, and blended with it." The impetus to begin this project, which he had hoped to turn into an eco-village and invite others to join him, was inspired by the book "Survival in the 21st Century" by Viktoras Kulvinskas (1976) and thinkers like Buckminster Fuller (William has a geodesic dome sweat lodge.

Common Blood Pressure Drug Increases Lifespan, Slows Aging in Animals

How a Minimalist Mindset Can Change Your Life – Why Less is More

Having a minimalist mindset can really change our day to day lives in lots of positive ways! Life is hard and we can all feel discouraged and unhappy at times, but while sometimes there are problems that shouldn’t be ignored, often, we can also get ourselves down when we fall into some very common thought patterns and traps, like wanting things we don't have, comparing ourselves to others, or waiting for something to make us happy in the future. The problem with these types of goals and thought patterns is that the happiness and satisfaction they provide are either delayed, or short-lived or impossible to achieve. And we end up either waiting for something good to happen in the future, or being in a continuous cycle of trying to measure up, or having quick highs and then long periods of down time in between while we wait for the next big thing to happen. Maybe what we really need is to find a consistent and stable source of happiness and satisfaction that we can enjoy every day. And by embracing a minimalist mindset, we can actually start to balance out some of these negative thought habits and patterns, and improve our overall wellbeing. A minimalist mindset is all about learning to be grateful for what we already have, and training ourselves to appreciate the small simple things in life. It might sound cliché but less really is more. We spend so much time looking forward and outward that we forget to notice what’s right in front of us, right now. The great thing about this practice is that it can start today. There’s no delayed gratification and there’s no right or wrong way to do it. It’s just a matter of slowly becoming more aware of the positives in our lives, whatever they may be, and changing our perspective from feeling like we’re lacking something, to realizing that we’ve already got a lot. We’re all different, we all have our own challenges and strengths, and it’s also very normal to have ups and downs. So this practice isn’t about erasing or ignoring all negative thoughts and experiences, it’s just about balancing things out a little. Shifting to a minimalist mindset and consistently making small positive actions doesn’t change things overnight but this approach can potentially have really positive and long lasting impacts on our happiness and wellbeing that are worth the wait.

NEVER TOO SMALL: Amsterdam Couple’s Luxe DIY Apartment, 48sqm/516 sqft Amsterdam

See why we love using Milanote by trying it for free here: http://milanote.com/nts4 Home to designer and carpenter Marijn Kruikemeier and his partner Liya, this once-empty shell in the heart of Amsterdam was completely transformed into a bright, contemporary space filled with full-size amenities and a seamless flow between spaces. The couple addressed the challenge of a narrow floor plan by adding a series of custom-built furniture throughout, the stand-out being a curved slatted oak wall unit opposite a full-size galley kitchen. The unit cleverly conceals a hidden bathroom, larger kitchen appliances as well as a series of storage niches for smaller items. The unit flows seamlessly into the living room, where a floor-to-ceiling cabinet spanning the length of the room houses a hidden TV that emerges and disappears via an electronic lift mechanism. At the end of the apartment, the sunlit bedroom featuring a built-in terracotta-coloured wardrobe surrounding the bed, leads to the tranquil backyard, a welcome extension of the couple’s living space in warmer months. #smallapartment #architecture #interiordesign Ep 147 Project Name: Project Jordaan Designer: https://www.marijninterieurs.nl/ Produced by New Mac Video Agency Creator: Colin Chee Director: Nam Tran Cinematographer: Rem Berger Producer: Lindsay Barnard Editor: Sebastian Tibbs Music: The Leaves Are Changing by Miles Kredic & The Woods by Jon Gegelman from Artlist.io

What we get wrong about self-esteem: It's built through actions, not words

Self-esteem is the sense of value we have for ourselves. It’s how we perceive ourselves: whether we think we are worthy and competent, whether we think we belong, whether we like ourselves.

Standing in front of a mirror and saying “I’m awesome” probably isn’t going to make you feel better about yourself, because self-esteem can be explicit or...
