Larch on the Sea

British Guy Hollaway Architects have created the Rocksalt Restaurant in Folkestone, England.  The exterior is clad in charred larch, which is a wood often used as a material for building ships.  It was built on top of a historic brick viaduct.  It is raised on a slate plinth to protect the structure from potential floods.


Blooming Structures


Sivan Royz's Blooming Structures are laser-cut pieces of silk strung together with string.  The density of the silk curves results in the darkness of color.  The forms are hollow to hold particular items such as iPhones, though I'd rather just admire them than use them as a purse.
