I could not take my eyes off a vivacious and vibrant creation in October's Architectural Digest. Architect Peter Stamberg and Paul Aferiat designed a magnificent modern retreat for themselves on New York's Shelter Island.
The architects took inspiration from the outdoor surroundings and landscape. The residence has unique leaning planes; it is built using a steel frame, and the walls are made from polycarbonate.
"We wanted to take Modernism from the teens and '20s and reanalyze it in terms of where we are now. The glass box had been done. We wanted something more plastic, more fluid - but just as ordered, not deconstructed," Aferiat said.
