Lenbachhaus Gallery and Museum in Munich

All it took was a new copper-clad addition, the installation of a geo-thermal heating and cooling system, and some LED lighting to transform an elegant yet out-of-date 19th century building in Munich. When architect Ulrich Hamann of the London-based architectural firm Foster + Partners undertook a four-year $79 million dollar renovation of the Lenbachhaus Gallery and Museum in Munich, Germany, the results were both beautiful and smart.

Best Houses in Los Angeles

No other city in America has meant more to the development of modern residential design than Los Angeles. An adventurous population, a phalanx of great architects at mid-century and today, and a totally amenable climate have made it a hotbed of hot houses from the word 'Go'. We've checked out Portland, Oregon, in the past, but today we give it up for the best homes in LA.

A Dramatic San Francisco Living Room

"A fallacy about modernism is that every space should be light,” says San Francisco architect Abigail Turin about her Pacific Heights home. “I don’t need every space in my house to be bright and cheerful.” In the living room, Turin went for the somber paint 4320J from Les Couleurs Suisse to get the dark effect. She adds a bit of light to the space thanks to a pair of Charles sofas by Antonio Citterio for B&B Italia, an Extra Big floor lamp by Marcel Wanders for Cappellini, and an Arco lamp by Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni for Flos. A Fogg rug by Gunilla Lagerhem Ullberg for Kasthall grounds things in a neutral shade, but Turin goes back to black with the Smoke arm chair by Maarten Bass for Moooi. Check out more of this traditional 1925 San Francisco home with a contemporary twist here.

Plant a Green Roof: Feed 70 Chickens and Lower Your Bills

If you live in a large metro like we do, odds are you see mostly bleak-hued buildings. Lots and lots of buildings. One thing we don’t see enough of? Greenery. Of any sort, really. (Unless you count the dog park, or rather, the patch of brown grass down the street.) We’re so nature-deprived we’d welcome the sight of some weeds.
