Olive house
http://www.archdaily.com/576360/olive-house-log-urbis/
Location is on the island of Pag. A house embedded in the southwestern slope on the coast of the Stara Novalja Bay is almost invisible from the sea.
The project highlights the features of the location, such as the southern orientation of the terrain, sea vista, Mediterranean climate pleasant for outdoor living, traditional Pag stone construction, the tradition of using wood for window shades and ship decks, and the indigenous Dalmatian vegetation. At the same time, the concept minimizes the negative features of the location, such as the slope of the terrain and summer sun, as well the exposure to neighbors’s eyes.
Olive House is a house of dualities and contrasts, introverted from the outside, extroverted inside. Simple, compact and closed membrane hides in its interior a glass atrium with an olive tree. This is the heart of the house, the place where the boundary between the interior and exterior disappears. The dominant materials are the traditionally used stone and wood, accompanied neutrally by details in concrete and metal.
Sustainability is planned through several aspects. The low volume of the house incorporated in the slope, the green roof and building materials are environment-friendly. The house is principally south-oriented, and externally protected from the sun. It is a low-energy consumption, class A house that uses renewable energy sources by means of the geothermal heat pump system and solar collectors, as well as LED lighting technology.

IP44 IvyLight
The Light Ivy is a clever lamp that features wire made from strong yet lightweight craft wire. The purpose is to expose the meandering electric wire of this lamp in a creative way. Usually we end up concealing the mess, but this nifty design ensures you have some fun with it. The lamp head rotates 180 degrees, making it the perfect accomplice for direct, indirect, diffused or table lighting. Awesome!
The Ivy Light is a 2011 red dot concept design winner.

I’m frantically trying to figure out where in my home I need an extra (and rather large) swing arm lamp after perusing the affordable wall lights from onefortythree.
