House in the Dunes

An architect and 3D animation specialist, Michał Szulik is the mastermind behind the House of Dunes project. The beautiful interior and exterior design of this home is a shining example of minimalism, using accent pieces such as walls and hardware to contrast the white negative space that dominates the home. Utilizing a black and white color scheme and reclaimed wood throughout, this home is brilliantly thought-out and decorated. And the most interesting part of this home? It is 100% computer-rendered and not the least bit real. Enjoy the video at the end of the blog which shows a rendered walkthrough of this lovely concept home.

Form Follows Function

chris frank cfx advertising

KC design studio renovated this Taipei apartment by stripping it back to its industrial bones and removing all traces of decoration in an attempt to remain true to the overarching Modernist design rule that form should be a consequence of function.

The homeowner desired two separate spaces, one private and the other public, with the private one having the option to be used as a large, single room or separated into smaller spaces to house a gym, dressing area, bathroom, and bedroom. The public area houses an open plan living room, kitchen, and dining area for increased family interactions.

Successful Entrepreneur's Checklist

Entrepreneur Magazine recently published an insightful article about being successful in today's fast-paced society by outlining five fundamentals that you should never compromise on. An interview with Rohan Sheth, founder of Rohan Sheth Consulting, revealed some interesting case studies that every entrepreneur should take note of ...

1. Give content away for free.
As an entrepreneur, giving away free content is tough whether it's to win business or appease a client. Afterall, time is money. In 2014, Costco reported that sales jumped 600 percent after testing their market with free samples.

2. Stay consistent on tasks.
Pushing consistent content to your audience helps establish credibility and allows for clients, consumers, businesses and competitors to inherently understand that you're an expert within the industry.

3. Live a healthy lifestyle.
Making time for exercise is often tricky, but those who understand the need to take care of their body as much as their business are the ones who benefit from the effects of leading a healthy lifestyle.

4. Have a plan for your goals.
Outlining goals can help you measure success. Making those goals apparent to your employees helps everyone visualize the benefits and ultimately manifest victory.

5. Take time for family.
Life outside of work is important and part of being a successful in business is knowing how and when to manage your time. There is a balance between family and work, and understanding that dynamic is paramount to success both at home and at work.
