We really like the clean design of the Offices of Buck O'Neill Builders by Jones | Haydu, a new headquarters for a young general contractor who sought a workplace that displayed their substantial construction skills and emphasis on green materials. The cantilevered stair detail is really great and the vertical gardens provide a nice pop of color. Who wouldn't want to work in this space?

This week we are really enjoying the bright and clean interior of this Vancouver, BC restaurant by Scott and Scott Architects. The restrained palate and simple detailing in Bestie create a very modern space that still manages to feel homey and comfortable. The re-configurable peg/hole wall mounting system is a brilliant touch as well! Read more about the project here.

These 'altered books' are beautiful sculptures by Portland-based artists Andrew Hayes who uses metal to transform re-purposed books into incredible works of art. In his own words: "The pages allow me to achieve a form, surface, and texture that are appealing to me. The book as an object is full of fact and story. I take my sensory appreciation for the book as a material and employ the use of metal to create a new form, and hopefully a new story."

Check out this really cool live-work rural retreat in Australia by Jost Architects. The project has a strong relationship to its beautiful surroundings on the Victorian peninsula and merges the "pragmatism of an outbuilding and the appeal of a living space." We really love the 'display wall' in the shed and the use of raw yet clean and simple materials. Via ArchDaily
