Finca Aguy Retreat

Designed by MAPA Architects, this 115-square-metre prefabricated house is nestled into a picturesque Uruguayan olive grove surrounded by rolling hills. The minimal retreat has minimal impact on the landscape, it sits over a series of stone walls, and consists of two 12.5-metre (41-foot) long modules. The exterior and the interior are lined in timber, while Garapa wood covers the floor, and Canadian pinewood lines the walls and ceiling. An open-plan living, dining, and kitchen space is placed at the heart of the home and flanked by two matching en-suite bedrooms. A sheltered balcony terrace spans the width of the building and offers stunning views of the unique Uruguayan landscape. It is equipped with off-grid technologies including solar panels and an on-site waste treatment system. The prefabricated home was built in a factory near the Uruguayan capital and was then transported 200 km to its final destination. It can be removed with minimal impact if needed, and operates completely off the grid.

PAINT DRIP TABLE | BY JOHN NOUANESING

The "Paint or Die But Love Me” Table designed by John Nouanesing seems to be melting. And if not melting, than not even solid in the first place, but rather a paint spill suspended in motion. It´s to bad we can´t order one, so far it’s only in the conceptual art stage....
