Architect’s Design Statement I have always been fascinated by buildings. Our every day lives are influenced by the buildings we inhabit, if the buildings are ill suited to our needs then all who dwell there will be impaired. A dwelling should provide it’s occupants with warmth, comfort, security. A house is where you exist; a home is where you live. The most important thing that a home should provide is ‘Comfort’. This is achieved by combining the basic principals of ‘Layout & Sunlight.
When successfully combined, a home will exude comfort, energise, but also sooth the body & mind of all who dwell there. Laid out correctly, a home should effortlessly accommodate the complexities of family life. While the aesthetics of each home may differ greatly, the common thread that links all successful homes are ‘good layouts’ & ‘natural light’. By paying attention to detail, function & form, a successful layout will weave together the many different complex elements that make up a home, a communal family space, an individuals own private space, a work space, recreation space, indoor/outdoor space, the garden room, entertaining space, storage space, etc. Layout alone is nothing without sunlight, if the right rooms are facing south, a home is energised, bright, sunny & cheerful, but if the wrong rooms are facing south, the home is melancholy, dark & gloomy. The above principals, together with a sustainable approach to building, can lessen our impact on the environment. By building healthy homes & work places we can nurture the human spirit.
