Good wood - another awesome barn conversion, this one has a much more classic feel from the outside but once you get in it’s a modern masterpiece. ‘The Barn’ (slight lack of imagination but I kinda like the direct approach) is situated in the Teton Range of mountains in Wyoming and was devised by Carney Logan Burke Architects.
Some of Idril’s things: a knife, given to her by Aredhel, to be kept on her at all times; a leather-bound notebook of her mother’s poetry; sensible slippers (you can’t go barefoot everywhere); a ragged stuffed toy made for her by Fingon, to keep her company on the journey; building plans and paperwork; a wedding ring.

“The new Port House in Antwerp repurposes, renovates and extends a derelict Hanseatic-style fire station into a new headquarters for the port - bringing together the port’s 500 staff that previously worked in separate buildings around the city.
With constant references to the Scheldt, the city of Antwerp and the dynamics of its port, married with the successful renovation and reuse of a redundant fire station - integrating it as a fully-fledged part of its headquarters - the new Port House will serve the port well through its planned expansion over future generations.
