MoCoLoco is a web magazine dedicated to highlighting great modern contemporary design and architecture. Through spotlighting a new feature daily, MoCoLoco brings together many facets of design, including; residential architecture, interior design, furniture, accessories, lighting, etc. 


Pictured above are photos of the Lake Hawea Courtyard House, by Glamuzina Paterson Architects, located in New Zealand. The house was designed around a courtyard that "allowed the building to address continuous enclosure and protection from the elements. The plan of the house was then able to negotiate both the interior courtyard and the exterior landscape." 


In addition to architectural projects, the webzine also features contemporary industrial design products and projects, such as this Modlet Smart Outlet by ThinkEco. The outlet plugs into a standard home outlet, and works to wirelessly monitor and manage power consumption of all those appliances we leave plugged in 24/7.
