Annie Kammerer Butrus is an artist who pursues work about our perception of the places we live. Her project involves documenting the changes in the landscape and the emotions evoked in response to that change. Mainly realized in painting, Kammerer Butrus's work has concentrated on the growth around the Birmingham-metro area where she resides.

About her work
"This work is a meditation on change in the contemporary Alabama landscape. In particular, I focus on the experience of farmers whose methods of farming and ways of inhabiting the land are in the process of disappearing. Shadow: Seasons is part of an ongoing painting project that documents agricultural landscape and encroaching development based on |interviews and oral stories that I have collected from Alabama farmers."

House N located in Pantovcak, one of Zagreb’s most prestigious streets, which rests below the gaze of Sljeme, designed by 3LHD Architects.

The ground floor consists of a living area, which extends to the outer environment through wooden terraces, some of which are roofed over, while others are open to the sky, winding up in completely natural pebbled areas amid grass. Unlike the living room and the dining area, contact between the kitchen and the exterior is not as direct. Nevertheless, the placement of the kitchen in an otherwise unfavorable position in relation to neighboring homes and the surrounding terrain was auspiciously counterbalanced by the introduction of a broad corner window set level with the garden lawn. Hence the work surface, placed alongside the window, appears to stretch out toward an open expanse of the garden.

The unfortunate position of an access road running alongside the entire length of the plot makes opening from the living room area to the most desirable southern vantage impossible. Consequently the southern area is modestly covered in a triangular glass shell that rises towards the southwestern corner and connects to the expansive glass surfaces of the western part of the house which are wholly open, thus connecting the living room with the garden.

The main accent in the interior is a wide two-floored hall that signifies the main connector of the ground and first floors. It is dominated by a hanging Poulsen “artichoke” bathed in diffuse zenithal lighting that comes from a high main window and gives the entire area a unique atmosphere. The first floor consists of intimate areas; a work area, parent and children’s zones, from which one may take in a most breathtaking view through a corner window. Built-in closets on each story have been integrated completely into their surroundings with color and materials, thus enabling a minimal amount of visible and movable furniture. Floors of oiled teak and white walls create a respectable foundation for any color intervention which might take place in the future. Special attention was given to the lighting of the rooms.

Toilet and wardrobe areas are lighted with roof lights in order to provide them with as much natural and superior quality illumination as possible. The fitness room is situated in the basement and gets its only source of light through round glass ceiling lights placed along the southern glass surface of the living area floor. This position was also assigned for the placement of larger house plants in order to create an additional visual barrier towards the street.

The boiler room, wellness area and wine cellar are also in the basement. All lights are incorporated in a lowered ceiling that hides heating and air-conditioning systems, which are vented from fan coils in wardrobes and floors throughout the house.

Richard Colman was born in 1976 and grew up in leafy Bethesda, Maryland, a suburb of Washington, D.C. His childhood home looks a little bit like the terracotta brick houses in his more elaborate paintings, but the similarity is just a structural one; presumably, there wasn’t nearly as much sodomy and decapitation in his real home.

Bethesda was a well-heeled place full of powerful people, but Richard spent much of his teenage years venturing into D.C.—both the ritzy and gritty parts—exploring, painting walls, and going to hardcore shows. Richard loved the presentable part of the city: the free museums, the monuments, and the energy of the locus of political power.

But just as much, he became fascinated with the other D.C., a place that had nothing to do with government and would never draw tourists. Just as his paintings of houses look a little like his own, there was plenty to D.C. that lay under the surface.
