real simple

Both of these images are from different spaces, however, I like the way they relate to each other. They bring me to think about traditional clay building techniques, where construction is entirely from the earth so that the shelves are part of the home, the seating is part of the home, everything is built as one. Here, obviously in a contemporary fashion, these ideas are put into place. I love the giant concrete slab floors that seamlessly become the walls and the table. There's some sort of romantic quality to them... for some reason they make me want to visit the Greek Isles.
