Twin Bench by Andrea Rekalidis

Twin Bench is the Sunlab 2013 contest winner and currently looking for manufacturers to mass produce this fun furniture design. The designer says that twin is a modular bench with a social character.

Lodgepole Retreat by Arch11

Arch11 have designed the Lodgepole Retreat in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. Description A weekend getaway lands lightly on its high-alpine site. Imagine designing a weekend-getaway at 9000 feet above sea level with direct exposure to near-hurricane force winds coming off the surrounding 13,000 ft. peaks.

What started as an intimate 2 bedroom, 1-1/2 bath cabin for a Colorado couple and their grown children, grew to 3 bedrooms and 3 baths when they began to consider space for their grandchildren.
