“When the creative spirit stirs, it animates a style of being: a lifetime filled with the desire to innovate, to explore new ways of doing things, to bring dreams to reality.” (Paul Kaufman)

I love this quote – its so true in my own life, but I think that it needs adding that this ‘creative spirit’ needs to work around kids, housework, the accounts, the laundry and a couple of glasses of wine with friends….This is where the rubber hits the road, where great design stands out from that which is just beautiful and inspirational. This is a blog that explores Architecture ideas for the home, I am interested in the structure and the framework of our lives and how buildings can serve and envelope these – improving the wellbeing of our families, friends, neighbourhoods and cities….

  1. And by the way, I forgot to say back then regarding your thoughts on the subject: well said. The purpose of residential architecture is to support and enhance life. It needs to embrace who we are, the ones living there. Always something to remember when obsessing with getting it right.
