Istanbul-based architect Yener Torun has taken on the project of documenting Istanbul’s minimalist architecture. His photographs have a large following.

“What I show is completely abstracted from the reality,” says Torun, “With the human element, the background becomes a tool that shows a feeling or emotion.”

Sliding House

Architecture and design studio dRMM‘s innovative residential project Sliding House was completed in 2009 at a Suffolk, England property and was the 2009 winner of the Royal Institute of British Architects East Award, and winner of “Best New-Build” and “Home of the Year” at the 2009 Grand Designs Awards.

The project contains three separate buildings (house, garage, and guest house), and was designed and created with the intention for the owners to grow food, entertain, and enjoy the landscape from the structure. The entire structure is connected by a 20 ton, motor-driven enclosure which slides up and down the buildings to create constantly changing coverage for the home, and exposes open-air living areas.

Ice Waves

Here’s a phenomena you don’t see everyday: photographer Jonathan Nimerfroh was out enjoying the deep freeze that has seemingly settled over the entire country when he noticed something unusual with the waves off the coast of Nantucket–things were so cold that the waves had actually turned into Slushy, Slurpee or ICEE waves or some other version of the crushed ice treats.

You can see a few more shots over on Stay Wild Magazine. You can follow more of Nimerfroh’s photography on Instagram.

Heffenden House

At first glance the Haffenden House looks like a whimsical building situated between two normal middle class houses, but the building is actually attached to the one on the left (see above) and nearly doubles the available space. The addition created by architecture firm  PARA-Project adds a writing studio with a garage-breesway at ground level a library with–of all things–a bathtub plumb in the middle of the room.

The exterior is covered in a translucent silicon-impregnated fabric. At the rear of the house the fabric is used on the interior as a curtain which allows the owners to control their privacy.

Location: Syracuse, NY

Program: writing studio/library

Team: Jon Lott, Paul Knepley, Min Lam, Hilary Pinnington, Cristina Webb
