As I experience this visual world I love, there are projects that would become welcome additions to that cocktail book in progress on my work. I've added them to my "cart." In no particular order...
Residential contemporary architecture is finally thriving in Washington, DC. This row house renovation and addition by David Jameson Architects is a fine example. The massing, proportions and use of materials is expertly executed by one of DC's top architects.
This is the interior of a Chanel Boutique designed by Peter Marino. Regardless of how beautiful each item for sale may be, it doesn't stand half a chance without the perfect stage. There is so much to be made and lost in this industry that to maintain the brand name, the environment in which they are presented is key to perception. In retail, there is the need to push the limits, and Marino knows how to incorporate that notion with style, elegance and sophistication.
I'll keep my project wish list at these. The phone's started ringing off the hook.
