i am positively salivating over these houses by late architect arthur erickson, all designed in the late fifties / early sixties.
catton house, 1967:
the site is a waterfront property located on an island in the archipelago of stockholm. oaks and pines live in meagre soil between sculptural rocks that dominate the landscape. a large section of the site’s upper part is taken by a large oak aged over 500 years
The home features an enormous patio with an elliptical opening designed to accentuate the view. The old-looking barn in the distance even features an underground tunnel that serves as an entrance into the home.

some amazing projects, large & small.
nothing amsterdam‘s cardboard office. i would probably spill coffee all over that place.
this home designed for a ‘malaysian power family’ has nine bedrooms, two family rooms, a family kitchen and a private dining area, a family library, a game room, a study, a public reception area, a formal dining room, a ballroom, chapel, 21 bathrooms, a swimming pool, two guest suites plus indoor private and guest parking. the ballroom has a round chandelier of 13,000 custom-designed undulating petals of unglazed cast porcelain biscuit. top notch – via coolhunter
