Friday Round Up

Posted on

It’s Friday afternoon! You made it! The weekend is here, and our plan is to get out and use as much daylight as possible—regardless of the weather. Springtime in the Rockies is a fickle thing, so you have to be prepared to commit and simply bring a jacket or two…

Whether you’re planning on joining us outside or holing up for a few days with the internets, we’ve got your weekend inspiration right here.

From Surf Shacks 070 — David Hertz + Laura Doss Hertz: Malibu, CA

A wonderful series of interviews and home profiles from surf shacks around the globe, aptly titled “Surf Shacks” from the crew at Indoek. There’s also a book and a deep, deep archive of photos and stories. Worth spending some time with.

The sunken lounge is carpeted in a Chili Pepper Red hue – the signature color created for the project by the architect. 

Reservations are now open for guests wishing to stay at Finnish-American architect Eero Saarinen‘s 1960s terminal building at New York’s John F Kennedy airport, following a restoration of its modernist details. Amazing.

You might have seen this already, but holy smokes—elephants are pretty cool.

Also – don’t forget we’re auctioning off three great books this weekend on our @architects_wife Instagram account – it closes at noon on Saturday!
