A London Ramble
At the tail end of my Scottish excursion last month, I got a chance to visit London. It was my first time in the city and man was I floored. I loved it to bits and can't wait to go back. Here's a little slideshow of a walk I took with a pair of pals who graciously let me stay with them, as well as a sneak peak of a house you should not be too surprised to see in the pages of Dwell before too long. Hope you enjoy my walk. I was bowled over!

- Hello from Scotland! I've had the rather good fortune to be invited for a bit of a design tour in Scotland, and I am reporting back on my first day and a half in Edinburgh.
- On a recent sunny San Franciscan morning, associate editor Miyoko Ohtake put on a yellow vest, protective goggles, and a hardhat to partake in a deep-access tour of the new San Francisco-Oakland Bay…
- These five modern house additions not only add necessary square footage, but bring their previously existing structures thoroughly up to date.
