June 3, 2013 Modern House Design
This Verdant Avenue House was designed by Robert Mills Architects.
According to the DigsDigs : It is a home that showcases a modern aesthetic, form, function and details alongside the nature. Besides, the home is sustainable without losing in glamour, luxury and pleasure of living there. An 80 year old pin oak tree serves as the focal point for the ground floor living and first floor bedroom areas. A striking 3.5 meter wide spiral staircase is an another focal point on this floor. Floor to ceiling glass windows also add a dramatic touch to the interior. The exterior entertaining spaces separated from the ground floor areas by glass walls and sliding doors. There is a 25 metre lap pool outside, which runs the length of the building and provides natural evaporative cooling to the living areas.

Description from architects:
Alterations carried out to a Federation bungalow to provide a new Family Room, Kitchen and Dining Area. Extensions and building envelop performance were tightly controlled to keep within the limits of the exiting air conditioning system.
Full width aluminium sliding doors were positioned along the back wall incorporating high performance glass. A significant design element is the use of the hanging corner making the building more open and giving a better connection to outside. The verandah was extended to match and large rainwater storage tanks positioned below. Designed by Tom Bombford Studio.
This Grow Up Light – Table was designed by Kwon Jae Min. Table combined with lamp. Please visit Kwon Jae Min site for further detail.

Gaudi Chair has a structure of glass-filled Nylon covered by a shell of carbon fiber. The nylon structure is slective-laser-sintered (3D printing) by the Dutch company ‘Freedom of Creation’.
Designed using the same methods as Antoni Gaudi, who made models of changing chains, that upside-down showed him the strongest shapes for his churches. In the chair, the chain-models are combined with a software script to generate the structure of the ribs. This is necessary because of the complexity of the forces in a chairs backrest.
High-end materials and techniques were used to create a lightweight chair. [ Bram Geenen ]

She believes that each project deserves a unique approach in order to find the most relevant solution, and often her inspiration often comes from the way we behave around products and each other.
One of her design is Will Dining Table / Desk. Made from oak and aesthetically inspired by mid century Danish furniture, Will offers an extendable table and desk in one. The product was a response to the changing needs of the 21st century family and aims to restore the table as the centre of the home. Designed by Lisa Sandall
