Flexible apartments offer efficient living for 7 students


Space Scholarship offers seven students a chance to live in two shared Bangkok condominiums Thai property developer AP Public Company has created shared living spaces in Bangkok for college students who have limited funds for housing. Designed in collaboration with Italian studio Fabrica, the project, called Space Scholarship, offers seven coeds a chance to live together in two condominium units whose interiors have been transformed into efficient places of study, creativity, and rest. Configured to maximize flexibility, the spaces incorporate modular design, built-in furniture, hidden storage systems, and other moveable elements. They were also designed to promote both openness and privacy, depending on the student’s preferences at any given time. Bunk beds can be shuttered by way of curtains and panels, while a dining table transforms into a desk with built-in leaves that fold up to become partitions. A kind of picture rail lines the walls right below the ceiling, allowing for shelves and other fixtures to be hung from it. And built-in benches offer additional under-seat storage. Each colorful unit comes equipped with a small kitchen and bathroom as well. The units even provide a slice of the outside by way of small balconies. Via: Designboom [...]

Ikea Malm dresser alternatives: 7 fab styles to shop now


From under $150 Editor's Note: This post was originally published in June 2016 and has been updated with the most recent information. Though easy on the eyes and wallet, Ikea’s popular Malm dressers and chests have unfortunately also caused a number of injuries and deaths over the years, as they easily tip over if not anchored to the wall. In June 2016, the Swedish retailer issued an unprecedented recall of 29 million Malm dressers and chests in the U.S. and pulled the three-, four-, and six-drawer Malm models from its website. And now, Ikea has put out the recall for a second time, after an eighth child was killed under a fallen Malm dresser earlier this year. The full Malm dresser range—from the two-drawer to the six-drawer—are still online, but each product now comes with hardware to help customers heed Ikea’s warning that the furniture “must be permanently fixed to the wall.” If you’re in the market for a relatively affordable, modern dresser, and want to look beyond Ikea, there are options. Check out these sleek alternatives, all coming in under $500. If dirt-cheap is what you’re going after, Ikea currently offers the more compact, Malm-like Kullen chests in two-drawer ($29.99), three-drawer ($39.99), and six-drawer ($79) versions. No matter what you choose, remember that there are currently only voluntary stability standards in the industry, so caution around upright furniture is advisable and affixing pieces to the wall is a good safety measure—especially if children will be involved. CB2 Shop Blue Chest, $429. Hayneedle Prepac Coal Harbor 6-Drawer Dresser, $194.54 (orig. $251.99). 2Modern Babyletto Lolly 3-Drawer Dresser Changer with Removable Changing Tray (and anti-tip kit), $399. AllModern Gravity 6-Drawer Double Dresser $287.99. Walmart South Shore Cookie 6-Drawer Double Dresser, $177.91. Wayfair Everett 4 Drawer Wood Chest, $97.99 (orig. $119.99).

Why the world is obsessed with midcentury modern design


The story behind the ubiquity Today, more than ever, the midcentury modern look is everywhere. DVRs are set to capture Mad Men's final season playing out on AMC. Flip through the April issue of Elle Décor, and you'll find that more than half of the featured homes prominently include midcentury furniture pieces. Turn on The Daily Show and you'll see the guests sitting in classic Knoll office chairs. If you dine in a contemporary restaurant tonight, there's a good chance you'll be seated in a chair that was designed in the 1950s—whether it is an Eames, Bertoia, Cherner, or Saarinen. A few years back, you could stamp your mail with an Eames postage stamp. Meanwhile, type the words "midcentury" and "modern" into any furniture retailer's search pane, and you'll likely come up with dozens of pieces labeled with these design-world buzzwords—despite the fact that there is nothing "midcentury" about the items they describe. Over the past two decades, a term describing a specific period of design has become the marketing descriptor du jour. "Midcentury modern" itself is a difficult term to define. It broadly describes architecture, furniture, and graphic design from the middle of the 20th century (roughly 1933 to 1965, though some would argue the period is specifically limited to 1947 to 1957). The timeframe is a modifier for the larger modernist movement, which has roots in the Industrial Revolution at the end of the 19th century and also in the post-World War I period. Image courtesy Herman Miller. Herman Miller pieces. Author Cara Greenberg coined the phrase "midcentury modern" as the title for her 1984 book, Midcentury Modern: Furniture of the 1950s. In 1983, Greenberg had written a piece for Metropolitan Home about 1950s furniture, and an editor at Crown urged her to write a book on the topic. As for the phrase "midcentury modern," Greenberg "just made that up as the book's title," she says. A New York Times review of the book acknowledged that Greenberg's tome hit on a trend. "Some love it and others simply can't stand it, but there is no denying that the 50's are back in vogue again. Cara Greenberg, the author of 'Mid- Century Modern: Furniture of the 1950's' ($30, Harmony Books) manages to convey the verve, imagination and the occasional pure zaniness of the period." The book was an immediate hit, selling more than 100,000 copies, and once "midcentury modern" entered the lexicon, the phrase was quickly adopted by both the design world and the mainstream. The popularity of midcentury modern design today has roots at the time of Greenberg's book. Most of the designs of the midcentury had gone out of fashion by the late 60s, but in the early- to mid-eighties, interest in the period began to return. Within a decade, vintage midcentury designs were increasingly popular, and several events helped to boost midcentury modern's appeal from a niche group of design enthusiasts into the mainstream. By the mid-90s, a niche market of collectors had already driven up prices of the original midcentury designs. A New York Times article notes that an original Eames molded plywood folding screen, which had been out of production, was worth as much as $10,000 in 1994. In December 1999, a George Nelson Marshmallow sofa sold for an unprecedented $66,000. A year later, two George Nelson "pretzel" armchairs sold for just over $2,500 apiece, while a 1965 George Nakashima cabinet sold for $20,700. Some midcentury furniture designs, like the iconic Eames Lounge Chair, never went out of production, but many others had fallen out of production by the mid 90s. And even getting your hands on the pieces that were still being produced would have been challenging without an architect or a designer to order a piece for you. In the early 1990s that began to change: In 1993, Knoll, a major manufacturer of iconic midcentury designs, opened its SoHo showroom, once to[...]

Would you move to this tiny village in the Swiss Alps?



This one will pay you to

People often dream of up-and-leaving for the country, or greener pastures, or somewhere—anywhere—else than where they currently reside. Some even follow through with those pipe dreams, whether spurred by a new job or simply needing a change of scenery. But these fantasies usually require a significant outlay of cash. Until now.

A tiny picturesque town in the Swiss Alps may soon be accepting applications for prospective residents, who, upon being chosen, would be paid 25,000 Swiss francs per adult and 10,000 per child (that’s about $25,400 and $10,170, respectively) to live there for at least a decade.

Albinen, located in the canton of Valais in southwestern Switzerland “on the sunny sides of the Rhone valley,” counts just 240 residents, with many of them having moved away in recent years—which is why the government will be voting on an initiative to recruit new residents.

Applicants must be under the age of 45, be willing to stay there full time (i.e., not on holiday) for 10 years, and live in a home that is worth at least 200,000 Swiss francs, or about $203,400. Although Albinen may not be bustling with available jobs, many can be found in larger neighboring villages.

Cutest house ever asks just over $1M in San Diego


The perfect starter home, provided your budget is $1 million Have a nomination for a jaw-dropping listing that would make a mighty fine House of the Day? Get thee to the tipline and send us your suggestions. We'd love to see what you've got. Location: San Diego, California Price: $1,049,000 This is it. This is the perfect starter home—provided your starting budget is $1 million-plus. Alas, for someone somewhere (ideally in San Diego), it is. And with that kind of money you get the cutest little bungalow on the block. Built in 1938, the single-story in the Loma Portal neighborhood features just under 2,000 square feet of space, offering four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and spacious living areas, too. A flowing floorplan lit with plenty of windows make this charming home a picture of efficiency and warmth. Hardwood floors, arches, and trey ceilings keep it traditional, while contemporary updates lend a freshness. An inner courtyard provides indoor-outdoor living opportunities by way of French doors in both the enormous living area with fireplace and the formal dining room that open directly onto it. A cozy kitchen with Shaker-style cabinets and a breakfast nook follow, then the master suite (which also opens onto the deck) and another bedroom. One of the bedrooms is currently being used as a large office, but, of course it can be transformed into a guest suite or something else entirely. Although the bathrooms feature what appear to be original tiling—purple in one and pink in another—they’re still hopelessly adorable (though you may be inclined to redo them). Rounding out the property are a private backyard, two-car garage with workshop, and a sizable driveway. The residence at 3345 Elliott Street is even close to everything: downtown, San Diego Bay, and the beaches. What more could you want? It’s yours for $1,049,000.

‘World Building of the Year 2017’ awarded to post-earthquake house in Chinese village



The reconstruction project reinvents traditional techniques

In 2014, the Ludian earthquake struck Yunnan Province in southern China, collapsing some 12,000 homes and damaging another 30,000. The quake inspired architects at the Chinese University of Hong Kong to reimagine local building techniques for more sustainable, affordable, and safe construction.

The school subsequently built a prototype home for an aging couple in local Guangming Village, updating traditional materials and construction methods with modern know-how. Instead of turning to brick and concrete, which would have been cost prohibitive, the team adapted the original rammed-earth construction techniques used to build most of the original village to be more durable and earthquake proof by adding steel and concrete bars into the walls.


This month, the prototype home was selected as the World Building of the Year and honored at the 10th annual World Architecture Festival held in Berlin.


“The architects succeeded in translating ‘four walls and a roof’ into something which, through architectural commitment, becomes a project that is much more profound,” said WAF Program Director Paul Finch in a statement.

“This building is a demonstration that architecture is just as relevant in the poorest of communities as it is in the richest.”
