We have had the delightful pleasure of having @avenue.design.studio visit us here at our studio in Drammen. After liking, commenting and chatting here on @instagram - we were thrilled to hear that they wanted to come visit and photograph our humble studio. They made us feel so special and we learned that they are so special too. My personal favorite part of their stay, was huddling down under a blanket at our house and sharing the final episode of Game of Thrones. Instant friendship there one can say! Now you can head on over to their blog and read more about their visit and see more of those beautiful photos they shot while being here. #linkinbio
THE BIOLOGICAL HOUSE is a pilot project by Een Til Een and a first of its kind - with the application of high quality bio-based materials. Waste from the agricultural industry, are today being processed into materials that can replace wood products such as plywood. The aim is to showcase use and application of these new products.⠀

You don't necessarily need lots of colour to make a great garden. Taking the colour out of this photo it shows how leaf shape/structure remains king in tropical design. If you ever get the time check out Gardens By The Bay in Singapore!

My wife had total design rights on this build. I even wrote a joke contract and signed it to say so. She has it pinned on the pantry door and during the build reminded me of it when we disagreed. But a deal is a deal and she did a great job. Plywood walls were used to line the interior walls and we again used SuperE0 plywood. I routed a 10mm shadow line around the edges of the boards that will be painted black later. The shadow line makes the joins more forgiving as butt-jointed sheets look more at home in a shed. All internal walls have been filled with sound proof ecobatts. #architecture#house#sustainable#sustainableliving#sustainabledesign#tinyhouse#houseandhabitat

Laying the floor cleaned the build up a lot. I think it was at this point that I could see it coming together and the potential of what it was going to become. The flooring is again West Australian #Blackbutt and I just love it. HOWEVER I made a rod for my own back so to speak because of the corrugated perimeter of the container walls. Despite the flooring being ‘cover’ flooring (laid over a subfloor) it is 21mm thick (cover flooring is normally 12-13mm). The perimeter boards as per the photo had to be cut to fit the contours which were not uniform and couldn’t be done from a single template. My first job was to make a scribing tool of my own design. I then cut a strip of ply wood the same width as a floor board and lined it up with a previously calculated parallel line. I ran the scribe tool along the board transferring the contour of the wall onto the ply. I then cut out the plywood template, checked it against the wall, finessed it a bit to get it right and then used it as a template over a piece of flooring, VOILA! Sure it took ages but trust me the tiles took longer. I will put a photo of the scribing tool up on a future tile or ceiling post. #sustainable#sustainableliving#sustainabledesign#house#shippingcontainer#shippingcontainerhouse#architecture#houseandhabitat
Kaare Klint | 7. As a designer, architect, teacher and curator, Kaare Klint played a pivotal role in the development of one of the most popular design movements of the 20th century, Danish modernism. By combining the efficiency of technological advances with the warmth and comfort of natural materials and craft techniques, Klint and his contemporaries humanised the modernist style, thereby ensuring that appealed to a wider audience, especially in culturally conservative countries like the UK and US. Arne Jacobsen, Hans Wegner, Verner Panton and other younger Danish designers were all influenced and inspired by Klint, even if they expressed his values differently. The clarity and sincerity of his approach to design has proved remarkably enduring at a time when design is becoming increasingly elastic and eclectic as it expands into ever more diverse fields. Klint’s underlying values of utility, economy, sensitivity and rigour, and his belief in design’s power to help us to build a better world, are evident in the social, humanitarian and ecological design projects that now define Danish design, like the pioneering Cycle Super Highway network that courses through Copenhagen. #design#socialdesign#sustainabledesign#kaareklint#danishmodernism#nordicmodernism#copenhagencyclesuperhighway
