Oops! Lamp | Yuue Design

The lamp that make you think it’s broken!

Description by Yuue Design:

Have you ever broken something at your friend’s home party and can’t escape the embarrassment?
Yuue design turns this embarrassment into unexpected fun with lamp series Oops! The series includes two types of pendant lamps for various situations. With this series, yuue design continues its exploration on interactive user experience. Oops! challenges our conventional understanding of using a lamp. By pulling the cord, the light bulb or  tube drops accidentally from its shade and turns on.

House in Melbourne | Alexandra Buchanan Architecture

The contemporary home is located  in Melbourne, Australia.

It was designed by Alexandra Buchanan Architecture.

Description by Alexandra Buchanan Architecture:

Covered in trees with restricted access and falling steeply to the river, the site posed a number of design challenges, including Environmental and Bushfire Overlays (BAL29). The form and materiality of the house were guided by the views, orientation, topography and context.

The twin butterfly roofs lift the eaves to catch daylight from every direction and enhance the sense of space and connection to outdoors. The house’s dual ‘wings’ slide with the landscape to create privacy for neighbouring properties while maximising views, daylight and access to external entertaining spaces. A glazed circulation slot creates a dramatic but efficient connection between the two forms.

The generous roof terrace with external fireplace and arbour allow for contemporary outdoor entertaining as the natural terrain of the site falls below, relatively untouched.
