Unusual Swimming Pool in Dallas Texas

hanging pool

Hotel Joule; Dallas, TX
For the urban exhibitionist (or voyeur, as it were): this Starwood Luxury Collection property (new to the Lone Star State, too!) has a sky-high design-y spot for some memorable dips: guests can go for a swim in this outdoor rooftop pool which partially hangs off the side of the building — eight stories up. And, yeah, it has plexiglass sides, too.
Rates start at $229 in the summer.

Heatherwick Studio Rolling Bridge in Grand Union Canal London

rolling bridge

Heatherwick Studio’s Rolling Bridge is located within a new residential, office and retail quarter set around part of the Grand Union Canal.

Rather than a conventional opening bridge mechanism, consisting of a single rigid element that lifts to let boats pass, the Rolling Bridge gets out of the way by curling up until its two ends touch. While in its horizontal position, the bridge is a normal, inconspicuous steel and timber footbridge; fully open, it forms a circle on one bank of the water that bears little resemblance to its former self.

Twelve metres long, the bridge is made in eight steel and timber sections, and is made to curl by hydraulic rams set into the handrail between each section.

The Rolling Bridge opens every Friday at noon and won the 2005 British Structural Steel Award.

Rippling ribbon staircase – not your normal design

The concept of a delicate rippling ribbon was chosen in view of the exposed position of the staircase in the main living area of the house. The staircase is constructed from 10mm thick sheet metal. Pairs of adjoining steps connected with an oblique external side joist form a bracket anchored in the wall. Each of the brackets is constructed as a rigid frame. The higher steps bear mainly drawing forces, while pressure is transmitted through the lower steps.

La Roche Chair – Unique Chair Design

la roche chair

la roche chair design

From Milla Rezanova, comes the new “La Roche Chair” concept, with a shape that has the ability of making you stop for a minute and analyse it in detail. Sustained mostly by its outer “cloak”, the chair almost seems like it’s floating, making it hard for one to imagine it is actually stable and connected to the ground. Its look is not only interesting from the front, but no matter how you place it, there is something original to be discovered, whether it is a special angle, a line or just the mix of colours. With a refined elegance, it suits well in a classic, “black and white” interior, but also in a rebel one, personalizing the place, because, overall, it seems to have an identity of its own.

Modular Modernism – Space Saving Kitchen Cabinet System

kitchen design 3

At first glance, these kitchen and cabinets and drawers by Michel Cornu look appealing but simple and modern – black and silver storage spaces hung from the wall. Closer inspection reveals that these are part of dynamic space-saving interior design system that maximizes function through movable wall units.

Tucked between layers of sliding cabinetry, the essentials cooking can be found hidden at the core: stove, oven, faucet, sink with a preparation surface in between and a refrigerator to one side. Why stop at the kitchen? This same strategy could be applied to beds, televisions and other household objects in various rooms just as easily.

When not in use, the constituent elements can be slid up and down to move them out of the way and create varying layouts and spatial configurations. Of course, those of you with some construction experience and keen eye for functionality in design will notice one small problem: unlike in these idealized illustrations, it would be very difficult to allow plumbing-or-piping-required fixtures to float freely in space.
