Centred on the concept of Home, and how to invest an institutional building with the nurturing qualities, the flexibility, ease and generosity of a welcoming, settled house.
The user can make themselves at home – opportunities for seating and working are quietly provided with varying degrees of privacy and sociability – window nooks, wide stairs, consulting desks that allow side-by-side working. Solid pieces of infrastructure – the concrete counter, the long oak table, banquette seating, are highly durable, but allow an active creative inhabitation.
This culminates in the Barn, a space of emotional intensity. A lofty wooden room of softly folding roof planes, it is an enveloping home for the imagination, play and daydreaming.
