The lemonade stand was in redline, code, planning review, RFI, proposal, installation and some design mode last week. Going to research the design and documentation of the residential world and develop a system that works better than the current methodology of the design build MEP and contractor pricing. I believe the housing market is greatly affected by this older school custom and it has contributed to the fall of quality and craftsmanship in the residential world. Architects, clients and contractors need a more concise and accurate system to be able to deliver a precise product. Ambiguity in design is great, but in the buy it off the shelf market we are in today the process is flawed to the aggravation of all parties. Regarding redlines and code studioLEMONADE relishes the crafting of documentation.
The building demolition was like peeling an onion. Layers of materials, paint, brick, metal, wallpaper and some of the coolest tags from the 60's. New construction is finally ramping up and we should see the place taking shape shortly. GO in December is the goal.
The Sleepbox at Moscow Airport: Comfy Pod for Travelers

We all know how frustrating it is to find yourself stranded in a foreign land, lugging your luggage around while scouting for a nearby hotel. The Sleepbox, billed as the future of urban infrastructure, is a cool conceptual pod that has been installed in the Moscow Airport to fix just such a problem. Developed by Arch Group, it provides a quiet sanctuary for weary travelers who need a space to rest while waiting for their flights.
The Sleepbox at the Sheremetyevo airport in Moscow houses two beds. Here's how it works: users may rent it for as little as 30 minutes to several hours at a time. Offering all the creature comforts you need for a short rest and catnap, the Sleepbox's beds come with warm LED reading lamps. Even as you recharge your body, the unit's electrical sockets will also come in handy for juicing up your cellphones, tablets and laptops.
The folks at Arch Group plan to set up the Sleepbox anywhere it's needed: train stations, bus depots, even at shopping malls. In warmer climates like Singapore, for instance, Arch Group says the Sleepbox can even be rigged outdoors, potentially making it a restful haven for shoppers along Orchard Road.
