The houses name ‘18.36.54‘ derives from the 18 planes, 36 points, and 54 lines that makeup the house. The home was designed by Daiel Libeskind, and is situated on 54 acres of open land in western Connecticut, overlooking some of the most beautiful landscapes.

The home was designed with this in mind, featuring an outer shell made from clad in mirror-finish bronzed stainless steel, the homes reflective surface emphasizes the environmental changes as weather, time-of-day, and seasons change. The interior cabinetry, finishes, and built-in furniture are all handcrafted from locally harvested oak planks. These elements, as well as subtle changes in the concrete floors elevation, distinguish the kitchen, living, dining, and sleeping areas without separating them, creating am open space with seamless airflow and scenic views.

This figure, situated on 54 bucolic acres in western Connecticut is clad in mirror-finish bronzed stainless steel and, as such, is never experienced the same way twice. Its reflective luster accentuates and exaggerates environmental changes as weather, time-of-day, and seasons turn around it. The interior finishes, cabinetry, and built-in furniture are custom handcrafted from locally harvested oak planks. Circulation throughout the home is seamless and free-flowing, a theme which carries through in the nearly- nonexistent distinction between inside and outside.

Challenging both traditional and modern notions of “the house in the landscape,” this bold design does not sacrifice itself to its natural setting, but selectively incorporates the elements therein for the enhancement of both house and landscape. (Via Ignant)

The Lix Pen is an amazing new 3D pen on Kickstarter, which will soon become the worlds smallest 3D pen available for purchase. You may have seen our previous post on the 3Doodler, another 3D pen that can write in mid air.

However, the Lix relies on USB power and uses small colored plastic filaments. You can learn more about the Lix Pen here. (Via Colossal)

Check out these two creative ideas that help man’s furry four legged friend get by. The first one we came across was of Architects  Jillian Northrup and Jeffrey McGrew and their invention of  the CTS (Cat Transit System) these two have successfully produced  a safe means of transport for their little buddies with nine lives.

Next we found this pretty cool cat bed, but with a modern look and feel to it. Introducing the myKitty cat bed. This comes from the creative mind of Polish designer Marta Pietrusiak. Her sleek designs would make any cat want to snooze on top and crawl through.
