Bespoke Van Conversions

Jack Richens of This Moving House, first started his business by transforming a second-hand 2012 Mercedes Sprinter, where he and his family of four can comfortably sleep, dine and unwind during adventurous holidays on the road. The cool camper uses space-saving boat design techniques to maximise its limited living space, such as the stacked beds that provide room for all four to sleep rather comfortably, and a porthole at the top bed keeps things open. The kitchen area is compact package, with a long, narrow sink, a two-burner stovetop, and just the right amount of counter space, whilst the dining area features the original captain-style chairs that swivel around. The interior of this impressive conversion feels spacious, with the curvaceous detailing making it feel very much like you´re onboard a ship of some kind. The cool camper cost about $10,000, with equipment and materials costing $8,500. You can read more about the construction process on This Moving House’s blog, and Richens has also started taking commissions to convert other vehicles into comfortable homes away from home.

South Garage BMW R75/5

Our Friday custom motorbike crush comes from Italy´s South Garage. The spectacular build is based on a BMW R75/5 from 1979, and it was given the name "Nerboruta”, an Italian term used to describe something brawny, muscular and sinewy, which perfectly reflects the bike’s presence. After stripping the beauty to its barest essentials, the Milan-based crew went to work on handcrafting the parts and pieces to give Nerboruta a stance that earns its name. Wood grain accent...
