The company is aware of the demand for low emissions urban mobility vehicles, but isn’t quite sure if an Austin Powers-like electric scooter is the way to go…what do you think?

SavageSalvage creates these wrist bracelets from upcycled, antique brass skeleton keys.  The key is hammered into a curve and attached by copper rings to a hand-forged, oxidized heavy copper wire bangle.

Each unique, and made-to-order bracelet possesses the patina and character of its previous life.  No two are completely alike.

natural harmony: archeo architects – greene residence


greeneext10_1.jpg

Archeo Architects designs and builds luxury homes primarily in the southwestern U.S..  Though most of their projects fall well outside most people’s financial reach, projects like the Greene Residence exemplify how a home can be harmoniously integrated into its natural surroundings.

The Greenes were looking to build a home that provided a sense of warmth, comfort and protection, featuring a co-mingling of interior and exterior worlds, an organic connection to the site and the preservation of some of the characteristics of the mesa upon which it sits.  Indoors, they wanted a sense of expansive shelter, without excluding the outdoors.

Archeo describes the home’s theme as one of “a house as a permanent camp” that contrasts old and new.  Conceptually, two “L” shaped stone walls provide the main spine and heart of the house.

Two thousand square feet of developed exterior patios, roof terraces and sky-walks, the home allows nature its rightful prominence.
