Husarö House by Tham & Videgård Arkitekter

Husarö House is a project by Swedish firm Tham & Videgård Arkitekter, located in the outer Stockholm archipelago; in this pine-forested location, the house sits on an open space of natural bedrock and faces the sea to the north.

The house’s exterior is clad with folded black sheet metal and three sliding doors with one-step access to outdoor areas.

Layout-wise, the house is arranged into two floors, a social area at the ground floor, and private spaces upstairs.

The sliding windows/doors take advantage of views and allow for maximum light to enter the space. Upstairs, a skylight that runs along the roof’s ridge makes for a light and airy space that also feels cocooned by the walls of the pitched roof.

Though the all-wood interior trend is full-force, it isn’t always executed as precisely and beautifully as this construction demonstrates. From glulam beams to plywood sheet walls and knotty flooring, the interior finishing is thoughtful and seamless, albeit minimal.

Pool Series by Kristen Martincic

Missouri-based artist Kristen Martincic produced this handsome series of pool images that are beautifully dimensional and play on her fascination with water; in Martincic’s words: “I have been working with traditional print media and a hybrid of print, drawing and painting on panel to investigate this. These mixed media works bend water, ladders, diving boards around the panel’s side, moving two-dimensional image to object. They simplify and compress space and invite the viewer to reconsider what lies beneath the surface of the familiar.”

Leica M-P Safari Edition

Leica M-P Safari
Leica can be hit-or-miss with their special edition cameras, but the recently released Safari edition of the M-P (Typ 240) sure is a looker.

Leica’s Safari style dates back to 1960, when the M1 ‘Olive’ was introduced, initially made for military and field use. By marrying heritage and first-class technology, the latest Safari model remains elegant (you’ll notice no signature red dot on the front, but an engraved script on the top plate), and built to unparalleled standards.

The Safari edition set is limited to 1500 worldwide, which include a Summicron-M 35mm lens, leather strap, and card wallet. At nearly $10k this certainly isn’t an everyman’s camera, but if you’re in the market to invest, this model in a class of its own, and it is also worth noting that sold as a kit, it actually offers a savings as compared to purchasing the standard model and lens; otherwise, it sure is nice to look at.
