Light Corridor House / FIGR Architecture & Design


…a beautiful light house a day…

A perfect combination of a size and modern architecture. Not too big not too small. Seems perfect to me.

…a beautiful sustainable Dutch house a day…

Great to see every once in a while a Dutch entry at the ArchDaily website. And if it is a sustainable solution as well, it is hard to resist to place it as a link on the blog.

Look beyond first impressions, pt 2


..a beautiful little house a day…

This morning after getting up early I am reading my feedly and I did start again at Architecture at the top of the list.

Sorry for that. But again try to look beyond the first impression. Because when you look at these pictures at first it might not seem so special. But take a closer look.

And suddenly you see that they are not straight. Actually the one on the right seems to be hit by yesterday’s storm. It struck me this morning while I was looking  through the list of options to post about.

And that obscure detail in the picture just suddenly hit me. And I started writing about it.

Because changing habits is a daily challenge.

Work on it, day by day.

Week after week. Month after month.

And somewhere along the line you will find that you became that person you wanted to be.

So I took out my keyboard and started typing, because that is what I wanted to do.

Find your ‘keyboard’ and start ‘typing’…
