In other news, the sun is shining at the Wood House and nobody wants to 🔨 the first nail 🙄. Is it the weekend yet?!

US Embassy, Dublin. John Johansen Architect, 1964. Johansen, at the time of commission was a professor of architecture at Yale University, the son in law of Walter Gropius and one of the “Harvard Five.” Johansen utilized the latest process of cast-forming intricate concrete known as the “Schokbeton” method. The pre-cast pieces had to be made in the Netherlands, where this manufacturing technique was developed and shipped to Dublin.

This ☝🏼 hill is where I would like to put the seathrift (thanks!  @gabrielpoynton ) or the hummocks (thanks! @growing_nicely ) that I posted previously from that amazing seaside landscape in Ireland. Thanks for the help you two, I had no idea what those gorgeous green pillows were. After some research, I’m thinking here in New York, under the trees and not next to the sea, ferns and moss it is! Oh, and can you see that white pine that just made it into the photo on the left? He has grown from a small treeling and is now about 12 feet! Happy last day of May from the Wood House!

Eileen Gray 🍀 Non Conformist, 1926. Since this is my forever favourite, I’m thinking third time’s the charm?! Also, the next post you see will likely be from the Wood House so just one more shout for Lady Gray 🖤.. #eileengray #modernist #modernmovement

Eileen Gray 🍀 Occasional table, 1927.

Hold on ✋🏼 You didn’t think I was going to travel all the way to Ireland and not find a little slice of Lady Boss Eileen Gray 🍀heaven did you? For me, she is in fact one of the most important women of 20th century design. She is never named with another and in the rare occasion that she is, it is beside, never under and always first. She associated with important  designers/architects of the time, but made her own way into the history of this significant time period for design, art and architecture. #eileengray #modernist #designicon

Eileen Gray 🍀 Bibendum chair, 1926. Finally, here in Ireland I get a shot at this design icon. This minimalist masterpiece ranks right up there with the Barcelona and Grand Confort in both aesthetic and modernist design. #eileengray #modernist #iconicdesign

And this is why I am a terrible tourist. We came to see the breathtaking views at Downpatrick Head, the surrounding cliffs and towering sea-stack.. which you can kind of make out just past the green. I could not get past the green 🙈! I am currently trying to figure out how to get this larger than life moss-like turf to take hold back home at the Wood House. Any ideas? #downpatrickhead #greeneverywhere

A glimpse into how the Wood House travels 🏍💨 You may have seen our original ‘84 BMW G/S in an earlier post. Whenever we travel we try to to get the latest version of this iconic example of functionalist motorcycle design. Two things we will never tire of, nature and good design. Here in Ireland the nature is otherworldly, and in it’s design the G/S is unparalleled. #whyweride #bmwgs 🇨🇮

St. Aengus’ Church, 1967. Liam McCormick, architect. 🍀 OK, it is quite possible to be both enjoying beautiful nature AND stay a bit on your regularly scheduled program, right? We were able to explore this midcentury beauty today on our way through Donegal. McCormick, one of the most important modernist Irish architects, was awarded the 1968 Triennial Gold Medal from the Royal Institute of Architects of Ireland for this building. Some interior shots in highlights if you want a peek..

Walter Gropius and Marcel Breuer. Associated Architects. Gropius House, 1938. If you have been following along with the Wood House’s journeys for a while you may have already seen some photos from when we visited this Bauhaus beauty. Now , if you are interested, I have finally shared the story (and lots more photos) on our site. I’m having a history crush at the moment. I figure I’ll just roll with it..

Outside looking in. Gropius House, 1938.
Kind of how I feel here lately. We’ve been busy getting ready for a much needed adventure, but I wanted to catch up with my IG pals today. Looking forward to a Sunday afternoon of nosing around your feeds, if that’s ok by you 🙈! If you want to see what I’ve been up to aside from said adventure prep 👉🏼 link in bio. Happy Sunday!

Ok, I know you guys think I’m obsessed with my new office and I kind of am, but THIS is not about THAT. I just cannot get over the crazy light the the sun throws its way. I think the sun has a little cedar crush. ☀️👀 Happy Sunday from the Wood House..!
