Founded on the vision of “creating elegant, comfortable and timeless buildings rooted in the unique environments in which they exist,” Specht Architects finds unique and creative ways to blur the divide between interior and exterior spaces. Case in point: Sundial House in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Perched atop a ridge in the American Southwest, Sundial House is arranged around two perpendicular concrete walls that serve as a sort of sundial that casts changing shadows on the concrete thanks to the narrow skylight that runs the length of one of the walls. The rough concrete construction that makes up those focal walls is perfectly balanced with warm wood beams, modern appliances and fixtures, minimalist furniture and enough natural light from all the glass to enjoy the entire space without having to turn a light on during the day. It doesn’t come standard, but the flat roof would also be a great place for a rooftop putting green.

Pappy-Van-Winkle-Hot-Sauce

Pappy Van Winkle is the name in bourbon. Bottles have sent drinkers on wild goose chases and left others with empty bank accounts. While we can’t help you procure any of that elusive elixir, we can bring a little Pappy into your life in another way. Pappy Van Winkle Hot Sauce is aged in actual Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels. The distillery teamed with friends at Midland Ghost to make this flavorful hot sauce, which features the latter’s prized first generation Ghost Peppers. After the sauce was made, it was left to age in barrels that once held Pappy. That means you have a sauce that’s rich, oaky, and full of flavorful heat. Use it on meats, veggies, or, if you’re a special brand of crazy, just drink it straight from the bottle. It’s that good.
