“Of course, thanks to the house, a great many of our memories are housed, and if the house is a bit elaborate, if it has a cellar and a garret, nooks and corridors, our memories have refuges that are all the more clearly delineated. All our lives we come back to them in our daydreams.” – Gaston Bachelard – The Poetics of Space
Designing homes is about much more than defining walls and floor space. It’s about creating spaces for living in and through. Architecturally designed homes allow us to concretely define who we are and they offer us a real sense of belonging, of community.
To satisfy these very individual feelings, I try to take the most holistic approach to architectural home design. That means I strive to consider both the practical and physical design along with the requirements that people should always feel safe, secure, content, and unique in their home. But, contrary to that, people also need to feel like their private space, their home, belongs within the wider community it stands in.
