1977 CB400FSS / 2V Motos

Marc found his inspiration in Bauhaus designers like Michael Muss Otter and the work of architects Alvar Aalto, Frank Lloyd Wright and Michael Muss Otter. Thankfully his professors eventually embraced the idea. So with a less is more approach he and Philip devised a plan to transform their unloved Honda CB400F Supersport into a stripped back hill-climbing beast. The 2V Motos Honda CB400F can now be seen racing throughout the summer season as it was always destined to do. As for the brothers, they continue to follow their destiny building more custom motorcycles and creating their own adventures — via Return of the Cafe Racers

Devil’s Advocate / Madhouse Motors

The Devil’s Advocate started out as a run down 700cc Royal Enfield Indian, which is a rather obscure motorcycle in itself. After Indian Motorcycles closed their doors in 1953 the brand was purchased by English motorcycle retailer Brock House Engineering. To keep up with the demand for Indian branded motorcycles they began rebadging Royal Enfields. After a couple of years of building customer requests, J Shia of Madhouse Motors decided it was time to build another bike for herself using the Enfield as a base. A bike that functioned unconventionally and reflected her own style — via Return of the Cafe Racers

Anderson House / David Henken

Tucked in Pleasantville, New York, less than an hour north of Manhattan, a 100-acre enclave boasts an impressive number of Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired organic homes. Most of the homes in the planned community were not designed by Wright himself—instead they were approved and plotted out by the iconic architect and executed by his apprentices. Called Usonia, the district is now on the National Register of Historic Places and encompasses about 46 structures. The latest to hit the market is the Anderson House, a 1950 three-bedroom, one-bath structure designed by Wright engineer and designer David Henken — via Curbed

Milam Residence / Paul Rudolph

In 1961, Paul Rudolph, architect of Brutalist masterpieces and Sarasota Modern gems, finished what many consider his residential pièce de résistance: the Milam Residence, a striking house comprising rectangular frames and windows sitting right on the beach in Ponte Verda Beach, Florida. Rudolph designed the home for attorney and arts patron Arthur Milam, and the house has remained in the family since. The Milam Residence, located at 1033 Ponte Vedra Boulevard, is currently on the market for $4,450,000 — via Curbed

Design

Undercroft / Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios

The skateboarder community and Long Live Southbank have worked in collaboration with the Southbank Centre and London-based architects Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios, not just to maintain the space but to expand it to its original size. While Long Live Southbank had to entirely crowdfund the roughly $1.37-million project, the restoration was also made possible with the help of broad public support — via ArchDaily

V2-92 Military Beige / Bell & Ross

There’s a certain balance to this watch that’s hard to come by; the models typically associated with Bell & Ross don’t quite exemplify the same sort of utilitarian design that the V2-92 gets right. It’s a total military mash-up, with design elements borrowed from field watches and dive watches packaged in a thin case. The domed crystal adds some additional thickness, for a total of 12mm thickness overall, but thanks to the thin case and high domed crystal you still get a very wearable watch. On a steel bracelet, $3,200; on an elastic canvas strap, $2,900 — via Hodinkee

Superocean 44 Automatic Ironman Limited Edition / Breitling

The Breitling Superocean 44 Automatic Ironman Limited Edition is built and designed in the ocean pilot style of the Superocean 44 Special series, which combines classical aviation-watch DNA with traditional divers’ watch elements. The watch has a 44-mm stainless steel case and a ratcheted, unidirectional rotating bezel made of scratch-resistant ceramic. Also in black is the dial, which features the red-and-white Ironman logo prominently at 3 o’clock. The case is fitted with a twin-gasket screw-locked crown, which helps guarantee the watch’s water-resistance to an impressive 1,000-metre, depth. Priced at $3,950 — via WatchTime

Fosson Residence / Christopher Rose

Nature meets luxury at this sprawling home in a private golf club development in Arden, North Carolina. Built in 2010 for an artist and financier, the four-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bathroom home balances whimsy with some practical amenities. The shingle-clad house opens onto an expansive great room with a dramatic timber vaulted ceiling and stone wall. An octagonal master suite comes with 5.5m vaulted ceilings and a wall of windows that look out onto the rolling green hills — via Curbed

Design

Grey Lea House / Adams Associates

Andrew and Helen Berry’s passion for Art Deco inspired them to try and recreate all the glamour of the 1930s in a 21st century home in Surrey. The problem was that they had firm ideas on what the outside would look like, but less of an idea of how to work the interior. But like most Grand Designs projects, it all came through in the end and what you see here is pretty much what was created 12 years ago. The current asking price, which is £1,600,000 — via WowHaus

Design

Weston Ridge Residence / Mickey Muennig

Situated along the winding coast of California’s Highway 1, this modern masterpiece is perfectly positioned to soak up the otherworldly views of Big Sur. Renowned architect Mickey Muennig designed the five-bedroom house in the mid-1970s, and it’s recently undergone a $1.5 million restoration and expansion to bring Muennig’s vision into the present — via Curbed

Meyer House / Charles Eames + Robert Walsh

Charles Eames is best known for the moulded plywood chairs that became a mainstay of mid century modern design. But one of his earliest projects was this six bedroom, six bath home in Huntleigh, Missouri. Called the Meyer House after its original owners, the sprawling 675 square metre structure was designed by Eames in 1937 in partnership with Robert Walsh, and it’s now on the market for the first time in over 55 years — via Curbed
