A modernist landmark rich in history + anchored by art, sculpture and landscape. This brilliantly thought out restoration was pulled together via a trio of talent...

" What do you do when your art-collecting clients (Aby Rosen and Samantha Boardman), the owners of an Edward Durell Stone landmark from 1938, ask you not only to restore the house and reinvent its grounds but to add a tennis court and guesthouse as well? If you’re Interior Design Hall of Fame members Steven Harris and Lucien Rees Roberts, introduced to the owners by Rees Roberts + Partners landscaping mastermind David Kelly, you check your egos at the door. The trio started by choosing a site across the garden from the single-story International Style main house—designed for the Museum of Modern Art’s first president, A. Conger Goodyear—so as not to overwhelm. "

[ MOOD ] A QUIET OBSERVATION: Sans [ ceuticals ] Super8 Film Launch

A look at the silent, unedited Super 8 film Sans [ceuticals] have made in collaboration with filmmaker, Veronica Crockford-Pound: "Featuring an incredible cast of women of diverse ages, silhouettes and backgrounds, we want to sharpen the lens on character as opposed to physical beauty. Through a series of daily bathing rituals, our study of the female form is delivered without idealising or objectifying. Made for women, by women." - Sans [ceuticals]

"I see this film as a film for women; it's about intimacy, touch, tenderness, and self-love. Our bodies experience pleasure and pain — we feel aroused, we give birth, we age. I hope this film makes us stand still for a moment and appreciate not only the women we’ve captured here as beautiful, but also ourselves.” — Veronica Crockford-Pound, filmmaker.
