Follow the Links: Insulated Studio

One of the beautiful (and time-sucking) aspects of the Web is clicking from one site to the next following a series of links to a new discovery. I started off by checking in on Karrie Jacobs' blog The Itinerant Urbanist and randomly clicked the Atelier A + D site on her link list. It was there that I saw reference to a project by Berlin architects Davidson Rafailidis originally published in Dezeen, the online design magazine. Called Selective Insulation, the architects designed a smaller, insulated room into a larger room. The architects wrapped double-ply bubblewrap (often used in greenhouses) around a wood frame to create an office space inside a chilly artist's residence in the UK. An interesting solution for all those mammoth warehouse spaces here in Baltimore...
