I continue to obsess over the (Dutch-inspired?) concept of the #urbanlivingroom. CDOT’s recent-ish redesign of a ~2km stretch of Devon Ave running through Chicago’s Little India neighborhood executes this concept beautifully. . Here, a street corner sidewalk has been widened to accommodate a pocket park, featuring benches oriented to facilitate social gatherings (when Chicago’s fickle meteorology permits of course; this photo happened to be taken on a particularly drizzly September evening). The result of installations like these? On warm summer nights, Devon is brimming with pedestrians, creating one of the most vibrant street scenes in the metro. And not to mention, loads more revenue for street-facing businesses. . #cities #urbandesign #walking #sidewalk #chicago #cdot #flaneur #completestreets #pedestrians #streetscape #streetdesign #pocketpark #publicspace #landscapedesign #cityplanning #urbanplanning #landscapearchitecture #littleindia at Far North Side, Chicago, Illinois

Day 4 of my #FebruaryDesignStyleChallenge I call this one, “Classic Urban” ✨ The “saddle” leather sofa serves as the focal point of the space, with its rich warm tone. The asymmetrical cocktail table gives an ‘edgy’ vibe, while the tufted chair embraces a classic touch. ✨ Art is a key component in any space. It directs the flow of the furniture — cover the art up with your finger and think about what else could have been used there.. an image of a tree? What about a flower? Or a cityscape? How will that subject affect the flow of the overall room? It’s important to incorporate art that is not only relevant to the client’s personal taste, but it must support the vibe of the space or it can throw the entire room off. Thoughts?

Reposted from @rogersstirkharbour - Our winning masterplan design ‘Urban Living Room’ in the Qianhai area of Shenzhen, China. Enriched with cultural activities, a new raised level sky garden will allow the public to flow through the city at various speeds, from the fast pace of the underground, to the medium pace of the street, through to the slow pace of the sky garden, terminating in a major public space at the water’s edge that will be known as ‘Performance Park.’ This will contain an Opera House and Conventions Centre and will be crowned with a tower, forming a distinctive distinctive landmark within the urban landscape.

#urbanlivingroom chair under a bridge. The transitional state -from the no longer home to the garbage dump- in which some dumped furniture become in urban adapted versions of themselves. Fun fact: behind it is painted the word "sienta" which translates: "feel", which also might mean "seat [yourself]" (or something alike).

Does it ever happen to you, that you come up with a cute centerpiece idea but then have to nix it? Well, we have too many little hands pulling and tearing at everything around here, and they forced me to come up with a new vignette for our coffee table. This the new replacement! I tried to incorporate different heights and textures and contain it all in this awesome and sturdy basket. So far the little ones haven't seemed interested in its contents 🤗 You can always count on them to force you to switch it up. #urbanlivingroom #urbandesign #eclecticfarm #coffeetabledecor #basket #books #kidfriendlydesign #decor

I go gaga for a nice fireplace with a nice chunky mantel. However, our home doesn't have one, so this was the next best thing ☺ A floating shelf made a nice perch for some sweet pieces that would not distract from the TV. The storage underneath was a great pick from my mom's garage. I gave it some much needed love and stain. I think it does an awesome job in hiding the cables that the kiddos love to pull on. #floatingshelf #diy #eclecticfarm #urbanlivingroom #storage #designwithfaminmind

#urbanlivingroom chair under my new favorite tree. I have this fascination [among other plenty ones...] with this transitional state -from the no longer home to the garbage dump- in which some dumped furniture become in urban adapted versions of themselves. So far I've just observed and categorized them in my head, maybe I will start documenting them... at Santiago de cali

#Repost @rogersstirkharbour (@get_repost) ・・・ We’re delighted to have been chosen as the winning practice to design the ‘Urban Living Room’ Masterplan in the Qianhai area of Shenzhen, China. Formed in an area of reclaimed land, the design proposes a new raised level for a 1.2km sky garden - elevated above the roads to facilitate easy access above ground between adjacent plots. The large city-scale of the sky garden creates both a heart and a new horizon against which people can orientate themselves within this new emerging centre. #competitionscheme #urbanlivingroom #shenzhenlife #shenzhen #architecture #masterplan #visualisation
