From a recent visit to the millwork shop we’re using for our home renovation. These guys do great work … build quality is superb. And they are fun to work with, highly collaborative.

Visit them also on Facebook.

Work in progress

My wife and I are about to embark on a kitchen/bath renovation in our 100-year-old triple-decker, following months of thinking, planning, designing, and tinkering (and procrastinating). Millwork will be fabricated by Kerf Design in Seattle. Life as we know it will soon change. More to follow.

Happy Birthday LeCorbusier!

The one and only.

"Charles-Édouard Jeanneret-Gris, who was better known as Le Corbusier; October 6, 1887 – August 27, 1965), was a Swiss-French architect, designer, painter, urban planner, writer, and one of the pioneers of what is now called modern architecture. He was born in Switzerland and became a French citizen in 1930. His career spanned five decades, with his buildings constructed throughout Europe, India, and America.” via

Typewritten Portraits Álvaro Franca

"Typewritten Portraits is an experimental art project. During my exchange period at Cambridge School of Art, I developed a technique for creating grayscale images on a typewriter and from it I was able to create portraits of five of my favourite authors in literature who worked on typewriters. 

This is an ongoing series and there are plans for five other portraits to be concluded this following year. Photographs by the excellent Fernando Dias.”

There’s something to be said for obsessiveness … I just assumed at first glance that these were algorithmically generated on computer. I was only half right.
