Airstream Mobile Office

A tech entrepreneur commissioned Edmonds + Lee Architects in San Francisco to turn this 1960s Airstream Bambi II into a beautifully renovated 80-square-foot stylish Live/Work mobile home. Although the owner works from home most of the time, he travels between projects and wanted a mobile space where he could live and conduct business. While the exterior has largely been left untouched, the team collaborated to design a custom interior with contemporary technology that would serve each of his needs. It contains a curved room with components tucked into walls and oak cabinets and hidden under seat cushions. Walls are sheathed in white-painted aluminium, and floors are covered in boards of white ash. There is a u-shaped sofa finished in Maharam wool, a height-adjustable desk that can be lowered and converted into a bed, a kitchen with a hidden sink and refrigerator, and a meeting space that folds out into a dining space. The caravan has multiple power sources (solar panels, gasoline, propane and advanced AGM) plus a Wi-Fi repeater and a cellular booster that were installed to ensure connectivity in remote places. There is also a Nest thermostat, a smoke and CO2 monitor, a camera, an alarm system and a Google Home smart speaker.

MERCEDES SLS AMG GT3 45TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION

To mark the Mercedes-Benz SLS 45th Anniversary, a very special edition was presented. The 6.3-liter V8 SLS AMG GT3 supercar construction was supervised by Bernd Schneider, winner of the German Touring Championship. It intends to conquer, not only collectors of the German brand, but also car racing fans. However, there are two drawbacks: first, its price, never below $500,000, and finally, the fact that there are only five units for sale, which greatly raises the dis...
