Designing A Special Place for What We Do That's Special

As you know, if you've been paying attention, my wife is a published writer and is very talented. Some day, I will design a private writing studio for her. Listen to how this architect describes his reactions to his client and the site, and his intentions for dealing with their needs, for choreographing the experience of arrival, and for capturing the passage of light and time. This is EXACTLY how all good architects think and conceptualize...

Very cool. I worked with an architect when I built my last house and he was very good about walking us through the experience from the low ceiling in the foyer to welcome guests and let them acclimate before entering the two story living room to the points in the house where you could see outside in all four directions because of the window alignment. No small feat in a T shaped home but he pulled it off. We also worked with an architect on our current project and her suggestions brought more light into the house than we could have imagined.

Flashlights can easily bring more light into a house. And cost a lot less than those weasel architects charge. SOME actually bill at $75 per hour! The outrage.

For a Really Enlightening Experience: Get thee to a lighting store!
