Casa Tolo By Alvaro Leite Siza Vieira

Casa Tolo
Home  |  Building
The Casa Tolo by portuguese architect Alvaro Leite Siza Vieira. This building located on a steep hill in northern portugual. "instead of fighting the natural environment, the architect embraced it using the slope as the home's main characteristic. the home begins at the top of the hill and slowly reveals itself as you descend down the outdoor staircase. the home was designed as a vacation home for the architect's cousin, wife and children. despite the familiar connection the home was built on a tight budget of 150,000 usd. the various rooms are divided among the levels, each one even has its own patio space. despite the frontal exposure to the hot sun, the residence is cooled by the earth which surrounds it on three sides." I love this house or building design, it is unique and a clever design that using the slope. photographs © fg+sg/fernando guerra Check out see more pics.

I love this Box Chair, designed by Eiry Rock. This piece offers seating for both adult and child, whilst also acting as a seat and play surface for a child. This product is a blatant expression of how one form is removed from another leaving a negative space in its absence. Eiry Rock's designs will display at the London Design Festival 2008 from 13 to 23 September 2008.
