Katz House by BAK Architects: Kruk- Besonias

Awarded argentinian architect Luciano Kruk designed this house with Maria Besonias in the woods of Mar Azul, Buenos Aires in 2007. We find the project’s clean lines and purity simply breathtaking, especially in regards to the connection of the house with the environment, as an ‘object’ interacting with nature and becoming one with it. We hope you like it as much as we do.

El laureado arquitecto argentino Luciano Kruk diseñó ‘Casa Katz’ junto a Maria Besonias en  Mar Azul, provincia de Buenos Aires en 2007. Este proyecto, de líneas puras y limpias nos parece simplemente impresionante, en especial por la conexión de la casa con el medio, como un’objeto’ interactuando con la naturaleza que le rodea y convirtiéndose uno con ella. Esperamos les guste tanto como a nosotras.

Being Green: A bike that portrays YOU!

We love the idea of trading the car every once in a while for a greener approach to transportation: a nice bike ride specially during spring time. But of course, if we want to do that we might as well have a beautiful and fun bike to go around.  Urban Outfitters is working together with Republic Bike to let you create the bike of your dreams. You can pick your bike model and then choose the colors in it. We customized two models we would love for ourselves! How would your bike be?

Nos encanta la idea de cambiar el coche(carro) de vez en cuando por una opción más ecológica de transporte: un divertido y saludable paseo en bici por la ciudad, en especial durante la primavera. Pero por supuesto, si queremos hacer esto lo suyo es tener una bici bien diseñada, y con colores divertidos que te alegren el paseo. Urban Outfitters, junto con Republic Bike te permiten elegir entre varios modelos de bicicletas, y luego puedes cambiar los colores de cada pieza a tu gusto.  No nos pudimos resistir así que hemos hecho dos bicis en nuestros modelos favoritos con los colores que nos encantaría tener. Cómo sería tu bici?
