I don't have a credit for these photos and I'm taking liberties here. I'm going to guess it's okay since Keith (the Moskow of MoskowLinn), asked me to spread the word about them, which I'm very happy to do (nope, they aren't paying me to do this). They want a reason to work on Culebra!
As it turns out, the product, Sun-Lite HP is pretty pricey, but very nice, as you can tell from the photos. Comparing it to anything remotely like it, it isn't as expensive as some of them, one a mind staggering 450.00 for a sheet about the size of a panel of plywood. It's all relative.
In his email back to me he told me he has come to Rincon every year for the past 20 years to surf and that his partner and family have stayed on Culebra for holiday as well. He also shared some other projects they've done and one of them, a huge surprise, had me a little dizzy with lust. I'm using the descriptions from the online magazine Dwell (so now I'm officially a thief, please have the bail ready).
A hovering egg. It's almost too cute but I still really like it.
Simple, elegant lines and absolutely functional. What more does anyone need in any structure? I really, really like their work, even though I'm usually drawn to the rustic, the old, the slightly almost falling down look and that was the surprise of it. To open up to something with clean straight lines, but incorporating other architectural styles, particularly Japanese, that have always seemed right to me. Clean, simple, useful.
Of course, as I wrote to Keith, I'm not sure I wouldn't turn out the chickens into the shack and live in the coop myself...
See you when you get here, Moskow and Linn!
Have a take on a new tradition Thursday. Do something teachable.
