A-cero Modular Homes
In my Google Reader this morning appeared a blog post about A-cero Architecture Studio’s new modular home design. Admittedly, I’ve never heard of A-cero, but I’m so glad that I know of them now. Their studio, started in Madrid, has evolved to include offices worldwide. Although the A-cero web site features so much amazing work, I was completely awe-struck by these modular homes.
Unfortunately, their modular home site is in Spanish and my knowledge of the language has slipped like a rock down a mountain side over the past few years. In spite of that, I was still able to appreciate the striking nature of the combination of black and white with angular lines.
In design, it is easy to muddy work up with colors and movement. It is often harder to trim the glossy fat off our designs to really focus on the message we want to share with viewers. I think I might make it a personal goal to try to design a site using only two colors. I already like to design sites with only two typefaces. Somehow, I feel like this challenge might be a bit more difficult. Wish me luck.
