Sandy Beach Home Office
Working from home is a dream for many. In fact the only thing better than working from your home is the ability to work from the beach, paradise if you will. Well the ‘Surfing With The Sand Between My Toes’ workspace allows both of those options fused into one.
Artist Justin Kemp offered up a way for you to work directly from your home office, while still enjoying the feeling of being at the beach, with your toes between the sand all day. ” The sand is relaxing, but for me, it’s more a symbol of my permanent vacation. It’s the design of a lifestyle where work becomes so satisfying that vacation and retirement become undesirable. It’s a permanent state of chill,” Justin explained about the home office setup. Essentially a massive wooden sandbox located under your workspace, this would definitely leave a mess throughout your home. [Via]
BRITAIN’S ELITE BUILDING UNDERGROUND FORTRESSES
When the word ‘bunker’ is thrown about, things like a Zombie Apocalypse might come to mind. Well, in London’s elite area of Kensington, residents are expanding below their homes and into the streets of their neighborhood (much to the disgrace of some neighbors). But not for reasons that you might think– you know, of the world ending or natural disasters that might require a hiding place.
These fortresses are being constructed as basement expansions with more luxury than you or I will likely ever see. One place in particular is creating quite the rise out of locals with its plan to construct a four story below street level playground. The space itself would be home to: a ballroom and swimming pool, with hot tub, sauna and massage room, as well as 15 bedrooms, seven bathrooms and 20 toilets.The Guardian notes it as “plunging deeper into the earth than the height of neighbouring homes.” Slated as ‘iceberg architecture’ the homes look very vanilla from the exterior, but one trip inside and down the wormhole and you’ve transcended a whole other world.
What do you think– monstrosity or cool new innovation?
Like many of you, we miss being a kid as far as age is concerned. That doesn’t mean we can’t let out our inner child when it comes to new gadgets hitting the scene. Any time we come across an item that reminds us of those good old days of no responsibility, is definitely worth a second look. Today we came across an item that could be a great addition to any game room, and will definitely bring out the kid in you.
Introducing the Arcade Light Switch. Just as the name suggests, this is literally a light switch designed from arcade machine push buttons. The unit is simple to install, and replaces the original light switch just any other replacement would. The best part about these is that they come in quite a variety of different colors.
