In These Times Of White

(click images to link directly)

With winter officially upon us, all things white were on my mind. Upon searching for both "snow" and white design," I happened upon 3 very cool things.

"Winter Palace" (above)

White Furniture

White Design (environmental)
• In their own words: "White Design is an architectural practice and sustainability consultancy specialising in the design of context sensitive, low carbon and low environmental impact buildings and landscapes, both cost effectively and to the highest design quality. Our approach to sustainability overarches, underpins and threads through all our work. The practice has four areas of specialism: architecture; landscape architecture; consultancy services; innovative materials and research." –
