Winged House by K2LD Architects

The Winged House is a remarkably triangular private residence located on the tropical island of Singapore. Its architectural frame features two adjacent trapeziums on a triangulated plot of land. These embracing forms open towards lush greenery at the back of the site, at the same time carving out a cozy private garden in the middle. Inspired by traditional Malay housing, the folding trapeziums let in fresh air for relief from tropical heat while the extended eaves provide shelter and shade from seasonal downpours. An airy living room is flanked by granite feature walls, providing heavy contrast against the lighter timber used throughout the rest of the house. This house is the proud design work of local firm K2LD Architects.

Pharrell: Places & Spaces I’ve Been Signing

A camera follows Pharrell around on the day of his first book-signing at Marc Jacobs’ BOOK MARC store in L.A.

Pharrell on what an icon is and interviewing Jay-Z:

“If you look at like a Jay-Z for example, the thing that tore most people down is what he put on his back and sort of made it make sense, and set an example for what adversity is meant to do in our lifetime. So, it was cool to interview him because he is a living manifestation of my view, that is essentially everything is mind over matter, and with the right determination and the right skill-set, there’s no reason why you can’t figure it out. Then you find your purpose, and that’s a guy who’s found his purpose.”
