A frequent Dwell contributor, Brussels-based photographer Tim Van de Velde trekked to Helsinki to capture the M-M House. “Shooting the home was a treat,” he says. “The family was very warm and accommodating. Although it was Father’s Day in Finland, and they had a party to attend, they welcomed me fully. We had a great time photographing this open and creative home.”
Formerly a magazine editor in New Zealand and London, Sam Eichblatt moved to New York in 2012 to write about architecture, travel, and food for international publications, and work as contributing editor to HOME magazine of New Zealand.

Based in Chicago, writer Patrick Sisson appreciated the personal touches throughout the Hufft house, especially how the kitchen, living room, and outdoor space flowed together. “While utilizing custom fabrication certainly led to a more personalized home, it was evident that signature touches, like the framed drop cloth on the upper level, went beyond functional to speak to the family’s history and day-to-day lifestyle,” he says.
An architectural and fine art photographer, Mike Sinclair is based in Kansas City, Missouri. “One of my favorite things about being a photographer is how people open up their houses and lives to us,” he says. “While I was photographing the Hufft residence, I set up my camera for a last picture of their evening backyard barbecue. Their family, friends, even the dogs, were all enjoying the evening and treated me as if I was just one of the group."
The recipient of awards including the PDN Arnold Newman Award and a Pulitzer Grant, photographer Jason Larkin exhibited his latest project, Tales from the City of Gold, published by Kehrer, at the Flowers Gallery, London. “Capturing the ingenious use of space in Johanna Molineus’s flat was a great challenge,” he says. “But the abundance of available light from her skylights allowed a great play with shadows in the space."
