Sanders Architects designed this pair of sustainable townhouses, located in West Los Angeles, California, USA, in 2012 as part of their Hybrid House project using a prefabricated frame, skin, and roof.
While parts of the homes are ready-made, they are hybrids of prefab and custom elements.
This approach allows for a unique residence at a fraction of the cost.
The House of Cards table by Brazilian designer-architect Mauricio Arruda is an inventive one of a kind table-piece that shows us how to build a perfectly sturdy table using the appropriate house of cards structure.
This table, despite its fragile look, is designed to support up to 250 kilograms or 500 lbs.
By laser cutting 4mm deep steel plates and producing cards in a scale of 13:1, the table is literally put together like a house of cards.
The steels cards are weld one to one, allowing each owner to fully customize its configuration.
