A new international design competition will award 15 thousand euros to the best sustainable residential landscapes anywhere in the world. The idea is to highlight projects that create a “contemporary dialogue between architecture, ecology and landscape” and serve as “places of inspiration and creation, as habitats that tell stories.” http://www.privateplots.at/en/award.html
Circa Lighting Blog | When installed over large islands, a trio of pendant lights will provide the task lighting needed for projects in the kitchen while complimenting the surrounding decor! For best results, be sure the middle pendant lines up with the center of the island and evenly space the others on either side with at least 30″ of space between them. Adjust the length of each so the bottoms of the pendants measure 30“ – 36″ from the island surface.
