Hidden Illustrations Revealed Under UV Lighting by Canada’s Newest Passport Designs

Passport Designs
For those interested in design and its infinite possibilities, have a look at these Canadian passports and their surprising security feature! Canada’s newest passport designs may look common at a first glance ( with the information and photo area, along with the typical numbered pages), but if you place one under UV lighting, everything changes. Security additions that are revealed by black light are common, but this is something special and you have probably already understood why.
ideas passport3
Take a look at the gallery below and head here to see original photos taken of Canadian passports. What a strange revelation the images turn out to be: each standard-looking page of the passport (including historical figures, well-known monuments and national symbols) is added pattern and color, resulting in miniature artistic works, only visible under a ‘black light’ or an ultra-violet light source. While the new colorful passports have been in use since July 2013, the media hasn’t “celebrated” their design until recently. We thought we would share the news further and see if they create buzz in the design industry as well. How do you find them?

Bright Two-Room Apartment in Sweden Exhibiting an Interesting Modern Layout

architecture modern apartment
Making the most of its central location in the lovely city of Gothemburg, Sweden, this bright and spacious two-room apartment offers extensive surrounding views. Spotted on Alvhem, the crib is located in a turn of the century building and preserves some original elements, such as the impressive ceiling height and wooden floors, which were, of course, renovated. As you enter through the generously-sized hallway, you have a global image of the apartment, with its stylish living zone and kitchen organized in an open layout. The kitchen is fully equipped and has an unusual amount of storage and work surfaces due to the practical kitchen island.
design modern apartment
From the living room there is direct access to a balcony, offering a great spot for coffee and contemplation. Numerous lighting units were embedded in the design scheme in order to bring in a soothing atmosphere during the long Swedish winters. The bedroom is secluded and therefore absolutely quiet. Large enough for a double bed with attached side table, this interior comes with additional storage space aesthetically hidden behind a patterned curtain. Have a look at the photos below and let us know what other interesting details you come across!

Surprising Modern Deronda Residence Located Just Below the Hollywood Sign

architecture modern residence
Deronda Residence is an imposing family home located near the apex of Beachwood Canyon, in the Hollywood Hills in Los Angeles, California. According to the architects at Space International, the project is originally composed of two main volumes, “shifted off-axis from each another to accentuate the difference in program which lies within”. Terraces and sliding glass windows connect the interiors with the expansive views available from just below the Hollywood sign.
design modern residence
Separate living functions are delivered by the two volumes: “The more public living areas of the house are situated on the ridge of the site, so as to take advantage of flanking outdoor spaces which are designed as extensions of the living dining, and kitchen areas. The more private sleeping and bathing areas are situated in an enclosed cantilevered bar, which hovers over the hillside and is nestled amidst the tall pine trees located at the perimeter of the property.” The white plaster shell is probably the most captivating feature of the residence; this elements  acts as a floor plate for the private volume, then wraps the social block, serving as a clerestory roof plane.

Connecting Three Historic Dwellings with a Modern Extension: Inspiring House in Vexin

architecture modern house by-jean-philippe-dore-1
Recently completed by French architect Jean-Philippe Doré, House in Vexin is an inspiring project that connects three historic homes with a modern extension. One of the main challenges was to renovate the existing buildings in the spirit of the village, while maintaining details such as the traditional roof tiles and the original lime plaster. On the other hand, it was necessary to highlight the contemporary volume with external aluminum joinery and internal raw materials such as polished concrete, black steel and oak.
design modern house by-jean-philippe-dore-1
The extension offers minimalist interiors, with white plastered walls contrasted by sober black and brown furniture elements. As you step inside, you are overwhelmed by the spacious living area flooded in natural light thanks to a massive glass wall. Take a few steps forward and you will come across an impressive atrium, livened by a purple accent wall. A rich texture array (including materials such as wood and stone) give away the vernacular character of this particular building. An elegant wooden staircase with metal framing leads the way up to the family bedrooms. Enjoy the virtual tour and let us know your thoughts on this complex architecture project in France!

Vintage Looking Noveltree Bookshelf Ladder Inspired by Classic Libraries

Noveltree
Inspired by classic libraries which often hold towering high shelves to store the vast amount of old literature, the Noveltree by Nieuwe Heren is our star design project for the day. The books that are hardest to reach are always the most intriguing ones. This was the main idea behind this vintage-looking ladder which can easily be turned into a focal point when integrated in a contemporary design scheme. A great addition for the children’s room, this is the type of furniture piece that makes kids want to reach out and grab those seemingly forbidden stories.
idea shelving unit staircase
This may not be the most practical furniture element to have around in a small home, but it sure is captivating and original. Moreover, it has the ability to highlight some artifacts that users are emotionally connected to: “We came up with the Noveltree as a place to honor and store your best reads. Plus, climbing a ladder to grab your books is just way more fun“, added the designers. Noveltree is available in a variety of colors and can be ordered by getting in touch with the designers through their website.  [Photos and information provided via e-mail by Erik De Nijs on behalf of Nieuwe Heren]

Instantly Improving Lighting in Dark Rooms: Espaciel Light Reflector

design light reflector
Looking for an easy solution to bring more natural lighting inside a room? We stumbled across this stylish reflective unit that we believe can do the trick. The Espaciel light reflector instantly improves the natural brightness of dark rooms. Practical and efficient, this design was developed to provide well-being and comfort on an everyday basis: “Fitted with a highly reflective, swiveling surface, the Espaciel reflector can be used to direct daylight in any desired direction. You can thus increase the natural light levels in your home easily and intuitively“, the designers explained.

ideas light reflector
The Espaciel works by placing it in front of a window. There are three models available and the user can choose the one that suits his or her home best. The type of product depends on the surface on which it is mounted: balcony railing, exterior window sill and interior window ledge.

The installation process is easy, which comes as a major bonus: “The Espaciel exterior reflector for windows takes under 1 minute to install and is suitable for all types of openings and façades (brick, pebbledash on masonry, wood cladding). If the wall edges are flat and at least 10 cm thick, the Espaciel exterior reflector can be fitted completely safety without the need for drilling.” The prices range from  €99 for an interior reflector to €159 for a balcony unit. What are your thoughts on this design?

Californian-Style Home Playing With Color and Transparency: The Flagship Project

architecture modern house
The Flagship Project is a generously-sized residence developed by Dupuis Design in San Clemente, California, USA. The very modern Californian-style home plays with transparency, as it features customized bay windows that offer views of the ocean, the islands and the magnificent Californian sunset. Its interior is curved and rounded, contrasting with the quite geometrical exterior. The decoration and furnishings are simple, blending white, anthracite grey and black, with a touch of light-colored wood.
design modern house
The play between light and transparency cen be observed everywhere thanks to the materials employed. These pave the way for a Zen garden and a saltwater swimming pool with a grey bottom. Bordered in red brick, the swimming pool is reflected onto the many façades of the building. One of the focal points of this house is a high load-bearing wall painted red with a sandstorm effect, which is visible from the entryway. A clever set of window openings, glass doors and skylights provide natural air conditioning, circulating throughout the rooms.

The house was designed for maximum security in the event of an earthquake or other land movements thanks to a concrete and metal foundation, implanted very deeply into the ground.  Outstandingly sensitive to ecological constraints, Peggy Dupuis designed the whole home based on a model of very low-energy consumption. Have a look at the video below for an insight on the creative process behind this project and let us know what you think!  [Photos and information provided via e-mail by Dupuis Design]

How To Create Your Own Japanese Garden

Japanese gardens are created to be spaces of meditation and reflection. Wouldn’t it be nice to relax here after work? Image Source:Dennis Mayer

Wouldn’t it be nice to have a place to relax and feel peaceful—maybe even downright Zen? That is exactly what happens when you create your own Japanese garden.

Japanese gardens are created to be spaces of meditation and reflection. What began as a space made for Japan’s ruling elite to find calm within the storm of their country’s strife and war, has transformed overtime into a way of life and deep-rooted culture.

Therefore, it’s not hard to understand why the idea of a Japanese garden would be such a beneficial export. In a world that moves quickly and in lives that can be beyond stressful, having a place to unwind, and even find inspiration is more important than ever.

While each and every attempt at this type of landscape is going to be slightly different depending on who is creating it, the theory behind the garden should be consistent — Creating your own haven of Zen.

Learn the Basics of a Japanese Garden

There are very few people in the world – only about 100 to 200 – that have actually created a Japanese garden in its truest form, according to the curator of the Japanese Hill and Pond Garden in Brooklyn, New York. In order for you to come as close as possible to the real thing, or at least gain some inspiration based on this style, you must first understand the basics.

The first type of Japanese garden you want to consider is a rock garden, which often includes the element of sand. This form contains no water element, and is designed to portray a scene of mountains and rivers. Sand gravel raked into a particular pattern is meant to symbolize the river, while rocks placed on the sand symbolize mountains.

The next type of Zen garden you can create is referred to as a moss garden. Moss thrives in Japan’s naturally humid and rainy climate, but interestingly enough, moss doesn’t need a lot of rain to flourish. This means that it can easily be incorporated into gardens in variety of regions. Moss gardens establish a soft and balanced feel that is meant to comfort a burdened mind and body.

It’s important to remember that while each of these gardens is a reflection of Japanese culture, your own Zen Japanese garden can be a hybrid of the calm that speaks to you. Whether you decide on a rock, moss or even a pond garden, the purpose of the garden must be clear—Zen.

Stay True to the Culture of a Japanese Garden

If your goal is to create a true Japanese garden, it’s going to take a little education to stay loyal to the culture of this creation. While it’s tempting to go with cliché ideas of what the garden should look like, many of these preconceived notions tend to come from Chinese culture. Additions such as red hanging flowers and bridges covering small streams are all actually derived from Chinese traditions and often mistaken for Japanese.

While many of these features have in fact, influenced Japanese gardens over time, a true replica will not contain flashy or bright colors. Instead, monochromatic green is preferable and used as a primary palette.

When it comes to flowers, they are not out of the question. It’s just important to recognize their role in the garden and your journey towards Zen. Flowers can be colorful, but not so colorful as to be distracting. Above all, the Japanese traditions calls for flowers to work towards highlighting the green that acts as the balancing color of the garden.

In addition, garden arrangement is going to be key. The thought process behind a garden such as this is that every little detail is a symbol. The entirety of the landscape is meant to work towards creating Zen, which means everything serves a purpose.

Keep it Simple & Small

A Japanese garden is not an exercise in creating the biggest and the best. Put all glitz and glamour aside, these gardens are a testament to simplicity and purpose. For this reason, keeping your design simple and small actually works best towards a successful final product and space.

Using materials that incorporate simplicity is a great first step. For example, a bamboo fence that acts as your garden’s perimeter is a natural and easy way to boost your garden’s meaningful design. A renewable resource (bamboo) that seamlessly incorporates nature into a crafted space is the ideal scenario for any garden.

Small stone pathways that wind past concrete statues or icons that speak to your goal of Zen are another peaceful tactic to incorporate. These winding stone paths have long held with the Japanese belief of anticipating what’s waiting in the future while simultaneously respecting your past. Isn’t that a beautiful way to look at life?

Similarly, don’t feel pressured to incorporate a large variety of plants into the garden. Sticking with two or three essential mossy or crawling plants is not only an easy way to maintain the garden, but keeps lines simple. A garden that is crafted with simplicity of design in mind is going to allow a mind to unclutter more easily than a space bursting with plant life.

Conduct a Little Research

Creating a Japanese garden of your very own may seem like a simple idea, but the reality is it’s an art form that must be studied in order to be perfected. Fortunately, these gardens have been around and beloved for centuries, meaning the resources are endless for those who want to attempt to design a Zen oasis of their own.

Creating Your Own Japanese Garden authored by Takashi Sawano is a comprehensive look at how design influences the achievement of Zen. Covering topics such as bamboo lines, plant placement and sand essentials, this book will give you a look into the meaning behind the small and important garden details.

Online resources are also available such as The Japanese Garden, and are meant to educate prospective garden creators on the specifics that need to be addressed before a garden is even started.

Finally, don’t hesitate to take the time to simply look at the designs that others have done. Looking at what interior design experts have done in the past is a great way to get inspired for the future. Japanese gardens are built on an expectation of calm and inspiration. What better way to make sure your garden is a success than to have an idea of what speaks to you before the shovel hits the ground?

Understanding the ancient foundations of a Japanese garden is the best start when it comes to incorporating one into your own home or life successfully. A bold mix of culture and tradition are necessary when looking to create a space of Zen. This may mean stepping outside of your comfort level and taking a look at your garden from a different angle to get the best results.

While this work of art does take some time to get just right, the benefits of a Japanese garden are worth it in the end. Not only will you have a space that brings you peace of mind, but you’ll have learned a history behind your design, giving your garden purpose that is based in a deep-rooted cultural history.

Mountain Guest House in Spain Connected To Generously-Sized Garden and Views

architecture mountain house
Architect Pablo Serrano Elorduy collaborated with interior designer Blanca Elorduy of Dom Arquitectura  in developing this charming mountain guest house in Barcelona. The existing volume could not be changed, so the creative team adapted the guest house program to it: “First of all we covered with insulation and waterproofing the roof, and then we did the same with the facades and interior space.”

The idea was to open the inside space to the outdoors, so the users could enjoy the large garden with views. The cover is extended with a new wicker pergola with iron structure. This increases the terrace space so that visitors can be more in touch with the garden and orchard.

exterior mountain house
The interior is understood almost as a single and continuous space where the living room, kitchen and small dining area form the main space. In the bedroom the designers created continuous furniture, with the same flooring wood. A base cabinet also becomes the head of the bed, and the window frame. This original unit can be used as a bench for relaxing and contemplating the views. The kitchen furniture, the fireplace furniture and cabinets maintain the same modulation.

Be sure to also have a look at this impressive historic farm in the eastern Pyrenees, also completed by the studio! [Photos and information provided via e-mail by Dom Arquitectura]
