Home making is the centre of an architect’s craft.
A home is a centre for personal and family life,
a place of calmness inspiration, safety and comfort,
a centre for sleeping, eating, play, leisure, managing the household and being-without-thinking,
an expression of our values: formal, informal, traditional, contemporary,
a place where furniture, artworks, clothes, gifts, books, objects of significance and importance in our personal history and life journey reside,
a place for entertaining friends,
a place to recover,
a place to create new plans,
a place where we make relationships to each other the city and to nature.
Today’s homes are technology-enabled, energy efficient, adaptable and sustainable
They are also valuable – habitable space is valuable territory, even though we can only occupy it for a while. The global economy rests on: households. Even so: “wherever I lay my hat – that’s my home…”
Each project reflects the site’s history, landscape, and character; also the character, lifestyle and architectural ambition of the commissioning clients.
