I'll post some conversation pits to get this going
I find the way you can just step up and off the couch instead of bumping knees while scooting around the coffee table interesting. It just makes the whole experience feel more free
I think this is an example of a conversation pit done wrong, because it lacks the easy in-out that I mentioned in my last post, but shit looks super cosy once you're seated.
This one does the fireplace-conversation pit thing in a more ergonomic and visually pleasing way, but I think it's wasting space being placed dead centre in this room
I don't get the idea of a "conversation pit" though. It feels... low just because you'll be lower than everything else in the room. Kinda like claustrophobia, but not really. Why not just put the couches and stuff at ground level?
I find that appealing because you can just lift yourself out. I dunno it just feels like they force a mellow or something, less potential energy, but more room for growth or some bullshit like that you know?
continuing with random interiors
Yeah I felt that way until right before I posted it, when I realized that if you wanted to pee you'd have to crawl over your bros to get to the bathroom because you wouldn't want to bump the fire.
If you have children there'll be grubby feet on the couch regardless of where it's placed. Regular cleaning is just a part of life.
I'm a sucker for tile, but there's something little that differentiates tacky tile from well done tile, and I have no idea what it is.
Apparently this is the guest bathroom at the main YSL building or something like that.
No clue. I dream of building my own home some day so I don't really try to determine market value, because markets change and location is like 80% of the value of a home.
a 3 bedroom home in a nicer area of LA is worth a 2br apartment in a hip area of NYC is worth a 8br home in rural Texas.
my god that sink is amazing
not a huge fan of the colours but damn
I like the idea of "conversation pits".
Those are sleeeeek
But, and this will sound silly, I strongly associate kitchen aesthetics and food taste. It just doesn't look like a place a grandma could cook christmas dinner.
They're beautiful, but I wouldn't want to live and cook with those kitchens.
A close friend of mine has a master's house in Brussels, and is renovating his bathroom. It's been stalling however and is essentially looking like Rick's bathroom. The walls are pretty much identical. I am in shock.
I often go on reddit's /r/MaleFashionAdvice, or 'MFA'.
It's a bit more grown up than /fa/. /fa/ is more teens/young people wearing baggy black clothes like the modern rappers like Kanye West do, MFA is more for people into adult fashion - practical workwear, business casual etc. I think a lot of people from /fa/ end up on MFA once they hit their mid 20s/get jobs and things.
you want minimalist and efficient? this is efficient, bitch
last pic, i have more capsule interiors but they are not /fa/
posting my (parents) house, comfy as fuck when the fire is lit
third year of architecture studies here
you dont make shit off uni, you gotta get a private business running with friends if u want to make actual money. planning on leaving my country after i'm done with uni as there are way too many architects here already
What do you guys think of this chair?
I want a reading chair and I am in love with this Wegner model.
Had a conversation with a retailer in Copenhagen earlier today.
I can get the chair plus footrest for around $5100 if I am willing to wait 8 weeks. I sat in the chair in a showroom and it blows everything else out of the water. Eames go home. Arne Jacobsen too.
I think I just might do it. A chair like this will last 30 years if taken care of.
Also, there are chairs with those legs from the 60's that have been sat in every day with no problems. They are solid steel. You have to be a giant tub of shit to even slightly bend them. And even then, the chair would go before the legs.
I don't understand the point of your comment.
I'm sure the lumbersexuals who live in such places can afford the bill+paying off the mexican cleaning lady
M.Arch Kansas State, but damn dude Cooper Union nice! I visited your "newish" Morphosis building, but they wouldn't let me walk around.
Pretty good education I'm asuming, since you guys are (were?) like top 10? And you've had what Ban, Libeskind, and Diller+Scofidio as graduates?
I'm hoping to get my phd at Columbia once I graduate and get my license. What patch you headed upon Grad?
Nice! Kansas is supposed to be a really good school.
I like most aspects of Cooper. The morphosis building really isn't as impressive or original as it's made out to be, and architecture students don't spend much time over there anyways. It also helped put the school in a lot of debt.
Besides the end of free tuition, it's probably one of the best schools out there, although I don't think it ever ranks high. Cooper grads are known for being some of the best conceptual thinkers out there (although a lot of them are annoying fucks who think that they're God's gift to the field because they got into Cooper Union).
Right now I'm 4th year and interning at a small firm that mostly does houses and renovation, which is pretty much my speed (although some kids in my class are interning at places like DS+R and Holl architects)
I'm not sure what I'm doing after graduation, I might just stay with my internship or at least in NY, or I might go for my M.Arch at Yale or Columbia (see you there if that's where you end up)
nice room, ugly furniture.
I feel ya, in my opinion most buildings are over hyped in the end. Professors rave about some building being the best thing since the dome on Santa Maria del Fiore and then you go see it and it's like yeah it has nice moments but its just kinda meh.. At least my professors give off that vibe, they make it seem like unless you crafted something memorable like Crown Hall or The Kimbell, then you didn't really make good architecture which is the part of it that really pisses me off.
And I'm in my fourth year as well, but I interned over the summer for a small mountain firm in Colorado that did high end residential (think 7,000+ sq-ft) so I'm headed off the Prague this semester to study abroad.
And if you end up at Columbia and meet someone named Spencer, there's a good chance it'll be me.
Same, I kind of assumed some Archi's browsed /fa/ but didn't know for sure. And dang first Cooper now AA, some damn good Uni's in this thread.
Does anyone else ever wonder what books they use to fill up the bookshelves in shots like these?
they make things specifically for staging in magazines like dwell
usually empty case DVD players, empty case desktop computers
hollow book piles with at least 2 real books on the ends for spcific shelves
fake fruit bowls glue to the bowls
owens bought that fucking barry x ball piece?
>mfw rick owense has a sculpture of matthew barney in his house
>mfw barneys ex wife the bork is a fan of owens
>mfw mu loves bork
>mfw fa loves ro
>mfw the significant crossover between the two boards
>mfw "tricky ricky"
how is that tasteful
he has 2 saw horses holding up a bowing piece of pine so he threw an end table in the middle of it
but you can clearly see the table is not doing this exagerated S shape thing

I just shaved my mustache this morning and looking at these pictures just made it grow back.

no, interior design is a degree path in its own
i know quite a few of them
2 years drawing, 1 year drafting 1 year design speicifc courses.
most of the interior designers i know are through high school and they only got close to me because they were weabs back then and used to draw anime sketches all day and go to the socal cons
pierre balmain studied architecture
virgil abloh did too (definitely not comparing them)
i wasn't talking about interior design at all
should have mentioned it wasn't truly related to the thread
So I have a memechrome room and I need black and white things to adorn my naked walls. I don't mean like black and white photos with grey in them I mean things that only consist of black and white
I already know what I'm going to do friend. I'm going to cover my walls in black and white things. I just wanted to know if anyone knows of any other cool black and white things :-)
it was a whole group of hipsters renting the place to record their album, winter heating kicked them right out.
worth noting that it's actually supposed to be a ballroom, though. not sure how they got a hold on it.
i'm always curious
why don't people who stage living areas use magnepan speakers?
looks so clean
is it because people don't know what speakers look like unless they're in a box with a grill on it or have exposed paper cones
>more emphasis on sound quality
you can both style and substance if you make comproises, that said thye consummer market for speakers is dominated by heresay and most people probably just buy what's most accessible to them. Dr.Dre headphones are incredibly overrated and not worth the money (bc how are they gonna make tidy profit and maintain their status if they're inexpensive?) but they're all I saw in NYC's subways not too long ago.
whats the point of having these?
in 3 years the anime they come from is no longer on your repertoire
all they do is collect dust
detract your eye
and have a negative psychological impact on the calm nuetral tones most bedrooms should be situated in to aid in developing a proper sleep cycle
you can hide them behind various furniture as long as they don't act like a bass box
in a vacumn the magnepan magnetic strip speakers out perform the satillite speakers that are on the market
and they don't need isolation pads, or acoustic foam behind them like various higher end cone speakers
rick owens came across as so cringeworthy on that wall street journal magazine article
i doubt /fa/ had WSJ and i doubt they could afford a sub to get the magazine but oh my god it was hilarious
I posted these ones to start my interior thread and got called out for being "babby's first minimalism".
And this picture looks so uncomfortable.. maybe because of the fire or just that people will have to walk over your couch with their shoes to enter.
These threads end up being millionaire's houses anyway.
Morty Jr: Love. That's all you care about. What about weapons? What about domination of the enemy?
