Final #architecturefriday for this week from @livingarchitectureuk. We believe that the best way to experience great design is to immerse yourself in it. #BalancingBarn by @MVRDV sleeps 8 in 4 bedrooms. This shimmering country house reimagines how a home interacts with its landscape, without compromising on comfort or style.

Who says modern architecture doesn’t have a sense of humour? The Living Room at @livingarchitectureuk’s #BalancingBarn by @MVRDV includes a clear glass floor with a view to the swing below, reimagined interpretations of well known artworks and colourful furniture. Here the cantilevered living room soars close to the treetops and towards a nature reserve.

Back for #architecturefriday, curated this month by @livingarchitectureuk. We commission world-renowned architects and artists to create houses available to rent by everyone. #BalancingBarn by @MVRDV in #Suffolk reinvents the country house with a modern, playful edge. The swing beneath the #cantilever is popular with all ages.

On the 14 April, @Equinox hosted another popular morning of vinyasa yoga in the Design Museum. Here's a wider shot of ⠀

“The Skateroom collaboration is an evolution of the DIY silk screened skateboard I began making in the 90’s, as an art canvas that could go on four wheels or a wall. These new boards are more refined art pieces, but the spirit of skateboard culture is what drives this new collaboration. ‘No Future’ is a response to the election of Trump.” Shepard Fairey – 2017
