Between Dog and Wolf by Audrey Hays

Stunning pictures. I had to share it here.

Aubrey Hays created the series ‘Between Dog and Wolf’ where she explores our lives taking place in between domesticity and wilderness. Her pictures are shot at sunrise or sunset, when the light wavers in such that a dog on the horizon could perhaps be the lurking shadow of a wolf. Aubrey’s body fits oddly into the surrounding, sometimes she even appears almost invisible, blending with the nature around her. She’s grappling with the uncomfortable, the disquiet, the unknown, she points on our overwhelming need to overcome isolation within these rural spaces. ‘Through the perseverance of remaining within the landscape, sturdiness takes shape as the wolf appears. It is my ever-challenging paradox of intimacy and distance, which draws me to the environment, yet stands in the way of my ever fully anchoring to a place.’

Residential Extension by Alison Brooks Architects

 

 

A typical brick building overlooking a green courtyard, expanded with unexpected growing volumes offering wide scenic openings. Sleek details.

Alison Brooks Architects has extended a nineteenth century house in north London by adding two tapered volumes that project into the garden. The first volume wraps around the brick walls at the side and rear of the house to create a small office, while the second volume extends out at the back to increase the size of the first floor living room. “The extensions were designed to draw in light from the sky, embrace the garden, and capture a precise view of the massive walnut tree near the house,” explained architect Alison Brooks. The ends of each block are entirely glazed, while the sides are clad in dark grey Corian panels. “Each trapezoidal plane of the scheme is either fully glazed or fully solid, there are no punched windows,” said Brooks. “Both roof and wall planes are one material. This approach creates an architecture without mass and weight. It is more like the folded surfaces of origami.”
