What Every Homeowner Should Know About Metal Log Siding

When you do not live in an area with HOA restrictions, you have more freedom to make your house your own. That means you do not have to go with the traditional vinyl siding or bricks.

The Glass House on the Cap d’Antibes / by David Price Design

British designer David Price, who works out of offices in Provence and on the Côte d’Azur, together with his Anglo-French-American team, has completed a show-stopping ‘Glass House’ for a British client on the Cap d’Antibes. The plot is a rarity in the area; not only facing the sea-front, but also east-facing and on an almost-flat piece of land, covering 2,000 sq m. The views from the new property extend from the snow-capped southern Alps alongside Nice to the coast towards Monaco and Italy, as well as, in the near foreground, the bay and headland of La Garoupe.
‘Right at the beginning of the project, the client purchased the site and, with it, an existing, rather ugly 1950s house’, David Price explained. ‘He initially asked us for a major remodel, but his vision was so complex and ambitious that it made vastly more sense to us to demolish and start again, extending the vision further. Happily, the client agreed.’

265 West 45th Street, Supertall Super Slender, Office Tower / by Rustem Baishev

The project explores a novel and captivating tower typology which emerged in New York in the last years — “The New York’s Super Slender”. Located on a small, currently vacant site on West 45th St which footprint measures at approx. 30x30m only, the tower rises to 400 m in height, and provides modern, ergonomic, sustainable office spaces for multi-floor corporate tenants. The project is another take on a path which skyscraper design will likely be following in the coming years, to meet extreme challenges of constrained and dense city centers, with their shortage of big vacant lots, yet ever-growing demand for new properties.
