earth + light.

Two local creatives, one beautiful home, and the role it played in their love story.

Patrick Blanc's vertical gardens are living art.

seesaw: day trip to arcosanti.

This week, SeeSaw took a day trip to Arcosanti for some creative inspiration. It's an experimental town in the Arizona desert, built to embody Paolo Soleri's concept of arcology - the fusion of architecture with ecology.

We all agreed it was pretty amazing and beautiful. It would be a neat experience to live/work there for a few weeks (they offer various workshops) or even just stay overnight.

A treehouse for adults - what's not to love?


I'd like my next French vacation to include at stay at one of the bubble houses at the museumotel.

Check out architect Pascal Hausermann's other works, too - absolutely amazing.

be our neighbor!

Local friends, are you looking for a studio space? Our building has a few vacancies right now, and we'd love to have some awesome neighbors who are creatively inclined. We're near old town Scottsdale in a mid-century building with big windows. Added bonus: a three minute drive from Fashion Square, Sprinkles, Yogurtland and more :)

If you're interested, email us for additional information at hello{at}seesawdesigns{dot}com.

That wood slab table, the amazing huge yellow door, the landscaping... a beautifully designed modern space from the inside to the outside, home to the founder of Dwell.

It's been a crazy, crazy week. Wishing I was headed here for the weekend.

a house in the woods.

It's just been one of those weeks. You know, when hibernating in the woods sounds nothing short of amazing... This wood house by Swedish architects WRB would fit the bill quite nicely. I love how the wood slats are used throughout the building as a tool to explore surrounding nature and climate.

I don't totally understand it (pulleys, ball bearings & counter weights, oh my) but this door by Matharoo Associates is amazing.

alvar aalto studio tour.

I love the way the t-squares, rulers, triangles & scissors look hanging up on that white wall of Alvar Aalto's design office (see more of the studio tour here).

city of light.

Nomiya, a conceptual restaurant commissioned by Electrolux and achieved by Laurent and Pascal Grasso, may just have the best view of Paris from atop the Palais de Tokyo.
