a10 studio has just sent us their new project: the Re.evolution lounge+bar, in the center of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
It is a project that you’d most probably be seeing in Miami or LA than in a touristy Mexican beach resort; it provides some fresh air to the city nightlife, and has also unintentionally triggered a micro urban renewal in the neighborhood.
Architect David Wahl, based in Washington, collaborated with Melanie Hall, owner of Luna2, to create this groundbreaking design which is a vastly different approach to the ubiquitous ‘modern Bali’ style. Its simplicity is intended as a launch pad for the excellence within.
It’s terraced front patio includes a stocked pond, a lap pool and a breathtaking view of the ocean in Indonesia’s top travel hotspot. The residence itself is a contemporary classic, a design by David Wahl that rests perfectly on its well designed landscape.

The advert titled Baggage Belt was done by Masterminds advertising agency for HOTEL BEAU-RIVAGE company in USA.
The idea was to create a refreshingly tranquil oasis for the weary passenger, mimicking the cool water of Beau Rivage’s tropical pool. The baggage belt was transformed into a swimming pool complete with swimmers and playful slogans. The result was a total change in how people react around the hectic space of a luggage belt.

Equis House is based in the city of Cañete, Peru. The architects Barclay & Crousse have sought to create the necessary intimacy to live in the desert and to ‘domesticate’ it without denying or betraying its characteristics.
It might be a distant cousin of shrimp or it might be unrelated to anything alive today.This weird four-inch-long animal lived in the sea that covered what is now Canada about 530 million years ago.
Instead of legs, it had 14 pairs of oarlike gills used for swimming. But the real strangeness was saved for the head. It had five eyes – two pairs on stalks and another sitting in the middle of the top of the head. In front of all these eyes was a long flexible nozzle with a claw at the end. Scientists think the claw captured food and carried it to the mouth.

Adventure Ecology founder David de Rothschild is getting ready for a summertime sailing trip. The Plastiki Expedition is the brainchild of David de Rothschild, and the goal is audacious: to sail 12,000 nautical miles across the Pacific Ocean from San Francisco to Sydney in a boat made entirely out of plastic bottles and recycled waste products.
De Rothschild has built a team he calls the Smart Collective to combat inefficient design. He brought together a group of intelligent folks who had never built a boat before to design the Plastiki….
When finished, the Plastiki will be made of 12,500 2-liter plastic bottles collected by Waste Management, will weigh 9 tons, and will have a crew of six. The Plastiki will have a composting toilet, onboard renewable energy and a garden. “People are so shocked that we’re going to grow food on the boat,” de Rothschild mused.

Located on a well-populated barrier island, the design breaks away from prevailing beach house typology and finds its clues for development in other ways.
Conceptually, the house created by Sullivan Island by Huff + Gooden Architects LLC consists of three parts: a latticed screen, a cube comprising the living area, and a linear bedroom/core element completing the composition.
The site is located in front of three WW2 bunkers. These sentinels have presided over this former military reservation for decades. The house continues this posture and resides near the edge of the beach providing both a reprieve from and connection to the beach beyond. The house is on axis with the bunkers and completes the formation as viewed from the beach.
