Okay, so this isn't a home- I initially thought it was, but I can imagine this building being put into a home design. This is the stables for polo star Nacho Figueras on the flatlands of La Pampa near General Rodríguez, a city within the capital of Argentina. The project is built mainly of concrete and hardwoods, chosen for beauty and low maintenance. What I find most intriguing is the way the roof melds in to the landscape. The roof is sloped and merges into the landscape, making it easy for the horses to roam between the roof and the ground floor.

Concrete Jungle, a collection of Growing Jewelry created by Studio Gutedort. The series consists of pendants made of concrete. The concrete pendants serve to be a small pot for the dandelion to thrive.  All the jewelry needs to sprout is sunlight from a window and some drops of water. Each pendant comes with, a package of soil, dandelion seeds and a small tube to water the seeds. The pendants are made in Germany and consist of two different forms of concrete; round and square formed.
