The Yallingup Residence by Wright Feldhusen Architects

Wright Feldhusen Architects designed the Yallingup Residence in Western Australia. Project description The site is a rural location with spectacular valley views to the east. The house is a holiday residence for the client and their extended adult family, and their children. The client is involved in steel fabrication, and therefore steel structure was part of the construction basis. The main living area is a large glassed pavilion that sits over a massive stone bedroom suit which is nestled into the hill. This provides perfect sound and privacy separation from the activities above. The main bedroom suite is a wing that penetrates and pokes through this pavilion.

Vector Watch Boasts Industrial Styling with Castellated Bezel

Vector Watch boasts industrial styling with chunky edges. Designed by Peter Fletcher , this concept watch is the new variation of previous watch that he designed called Supernova. For this watch, Fletcher has integrated an LCD display framed by a castellated bezel that separates the watch face into 4 hour zones. The center area becomes the mode indicators. Time is displayed in 15-minute increment, arranged in groups of four where the hour is positioned as an analogue clock face. When at 12 o’clock position, there’s a group of 15 single minutes (+ 3 x 15 minute blocks). These blocks are framed and divided by the castellated bezel. The center area is prepared to display different modes this watch has to offer, such as am/pm, alarms, chine, date, etc. It’s a bit confusing, yes, we admit, it’s not as easy as other watches to read, but hey, it does look pretty cool.
