Is there anything better than animals photobombing? Oh my gosh losing it over here.
Green Box by Act Romegialli Architects
Here’s another hidden enclave to add to the list of garden sanctuaries designed for a modern day Henry David Thoreau: Italian architecture firm Act Romegialli converted a storage shed in the Italian Alps into a verdurous box that is somehow equal parts Snow White cottage and Phillip Johnson’s Glass House. To make Green Box, Act Romegialli gave the client’s backyard building a lightweight steel frame and glass walls, then, well, pretty much let nature do it’s thing. Vines sink down the rooftop and over the facade; inside, the architects used reclaimed wood, concrete, stone and galvanized steel to reinforce the minimalist cabin feeling.
I think white is better.
I made this logo for my sister’s business. I’m not sure.
Tram stop, 8.30pm.
Some guy: suit, briefcase.
Me: jeans, bag full of plants.
Made me realise how great my job is, even if I do have to work late some days.
Quote of the day:
“I don’t understand why people think they’re too busy in their lives to cook a decent risotto. The joy of cooking and sharing with your family and friends - having people making sex noises when they’re eating the food that you’ve cooked for them - that’s brilliant!”

I don’t understand Spotify.
I just finished reading The Book Thief. I am so glad I didn’t read it in public, my goodness! Beautiful but terribly harrowing.
