Modern Homes in Film

James Munn pulled together a variety of movie clips showcasing modern residential architecture as sets. Some homes you may recognize, others maybe not… Very fun to see how design can add to the story (and in some cases steal the show!).

DIY Design – Coat Rack

DIY Design – Coat Rack

You always need some place to hang coats, hats, back packs, etc. in your entryway. Everything I saw had a traditional look or used the typical hooks and was frankly, uninspiring. Here is one I made using some scrap birch and walnut with some brass/steel rod. It was very simple to put together and has a clean, modern look. Click on the images to enlarge.

Project Update -Bald Eagle Lake

Project Update -Bald Eagle Lake

We are having fun with this project! An overall plan and design direction is set but the main discussion over the past month related to the roof form. The flat roof was out of the running early. The Owner’s had always desired an offset barrel roof but the shed roof was intriguing as well. Each had their pros and cons as it related to the interior and exterior function, aesthetic and costs. After much discussion and many sketches, the Owners decided to stay with their original desire for the offset barrel.

We are now working on the folding in the details, including the finishes and textures. Be sure to check previous posts to see how this project began! Click on the images below to enlarge.
