Album cover art from Mcginley's most recent exhibit I know where the summer goes. Ryan's work was also the creative inspiration behind the bands new video Gobblddigook (directed by Arni and Kinski of the Glósóli+Viðrar vel til loftárása vids, cinematography by Christopher Doyle).
FARO architect firm. Netherlands. 207 sqm. Architect Pieter Weijnen built this as his own experimental wooden home.
Sustainable use of energy is the main concept:
Glass façade facing South lets in daylight and sun heat.
The air-conditioning is based on an ancient Arabian system where air from the house is pumped through underground tubes, once the air has cooled it's led back into the building.
A tank under the roof terrace collects rainwater-used for the washing machine+toilets.
Recycled materials were used- the large beams in the front are old docking poles, the copper cladding used was from the roof of a church.
Smart and stylish design.
