During the professional life of an architect, the task of designing a residence can be a frequent occurrence. As the project develops, representing a vision in a determined space through a set of drawings is certainly one of the primary tasks of the design process. While the architect has a certain level of visual literacy, sometimes the client won't necessarily understand all the drawings. Going beyond the two-dimensionality of the plans, sections and elevations, axonometric perspectives are presented as an efficient instrument in the spatial representation of the project. When adding the notion of third dimension—and even though it’s presented by on a 2D sheet of paper—it gives a better understanding to those unfamiliar with technical drawings.
In the age-old debate of buy versus rent, one of the knock-backs on renting has always been that you can’t decorate your home and make it your own, but is it really so black and white?
While you might not exactly be able to go and knock walls through and add an extension, there are a number of decorative moves you can make to imprint your style on a rented property.
Here are some ideas that will not only get your place looking better but set you up for the future as well.
I’ll Scratch Your Back…
So, your landlord controls what goes on in the property and that means you can’t make any changes? Not exactly.
Of course, it depends on your landlord but, if you feel the place needs a bit of a spruce up (a coat of paint on the walls, for example), it’s worth asking your landlord if you can take care of it for them.
More often that not, your landlord will be open to making changes as long as they improve the property and are within reason. After all, you’re offering to both enhance their asset and do the work for them. It’s a mutually beneficial exchange.
Hear the words ‘English town house’, and what do you imagine? Is it a quirky, cosy home, by any chance? And does its image appeal to you? If the answer is yes, we don’t blame you.
Many people aspire to live in this kind of property. Not everybody owns a Victorian terraced house.
But that doesn’t mean that we can’t recreate the English town house look inside our homes.
Here, we explore how to do this.
Look for Outside Inspiration
What attracts you to town houses? Is it their layout? Or perhaps the way that they’re presented in films? Whatever the reason, consider your attachment to this property type.
That way, you can design your interior to suit your tastes. If you’re not entirely sure why you love town houses, why not explore your ideas in a creative way. This can be through a mind map, poster, or mood board.
Once you’ve set out your plan, you may want to save this design piece. At the end of the project, you can hang it on the wall to enhance the town house appeal.
Thinking of upgrading your office flooring?
Consider installing Linton’s solid or engineered wood floors.
The Linton range features floors that are aesthetically stunning and extremely durable. When you are looking for a floor that is beautiful, durable and economical, look no more than Linton.
Linton Wood Floors Create the Right First Impression
Linton hardwood floors bring out the beauty of wood at its best. Linton engineered wood uses solid hardwood as the top layer. So, these floors are as real as solid wood floors.
Whether you like the beautiful knots and grains of wood highlighted or prefer a smoother finish, Linton has a solid and engineered wood floor that matches your aesthetic needs.
Linton floors are made from popular wood species like oak, maple, beech, ash and merbau. These are available in a range of shades from deep and dark to balanced and light hues. You are sure to find a shade the perfectly matches your decor.
In December 2018, a set of fabricated steel installations of 500 square meters were showcased at the front square of the Power Station of Art (PSA) in Shanghai. The creation was completed by GOA in collaboration with students from Tongji University, Southeast University and China Academy of Art. Divided into three parts, namely, “Theatre”, “Exhibition” and “Leisure”, the whole set of spatial structures also present community activities, artistic performances and parent-child games to attract wide participation and spice up the vim and vigor of the blocks in winter. When overlooked from far above, the fascinating Gravitational Field by the riverside looks exactly like a white and light-weight delta.

From the wicker chairs of the 1920s, the evolution of airplane seats has rapidly diverged in two different directions — toward luxurious full-sized beds on first class international flights and the increasingly tiny torture devices in economy. Clearly, what’s happening in the air parallels growing class schisms on the ground, but what makes air travel unique (and often, uniquely rage-inducing) is the juxtaposition of these elements within the same confined space, all set against a backdrop of general travel stress and anxiety.
