europe meets america...

i'm somewhat engaged by the vast differences in style and charachter that spaces inform or are informed by through design, location, designers and indeed designs inspirations...

since i've been blogging the notable blogs that i log into on a daily basis are by american and australian bloggers...and indeed the difference in european and american topics are huge...

today, the formosa 1140 townhouses in west hollywood grabbed my attention for a number of reasons...the european influences so apparent in the interior stylings, the sleek forms that the exterior building posesses, and indeed the irish name of the architect be he irish or not...

architect Lorcan O'Herlihy has designed a metallic exterior that wraps the building in shades of red giving the building a phunky geometric look...

the high-gloss white kitchens in these buildings can be nothing other than european inspired...again in the bathrooms all-white cabinetry is used...i can't help but think the architect was surely inspired by recent trends in ireland and the UK as well as european boutique hotels...


what do you think...???

you should check out jean nouvelles extension at the national museum in madrid... your not a fan of red but that place might change your mind also... i attended a dinner fun there once and was totally transfixed by the space... and the cava...
