WE HAD TO HAVE: Walls for art.
TIPS FOR OTHER HOME BUILDERS: Make sure you have an architect and a builder you trust; remember there is no such thing as a perfect house; and, finally, enjoy the creative process. THE FAMILY’S FAVOURITE GATHERING PLACE: Around a fire, inside or out.
THE GARDEN IS A PLEASURE BECAUSE: It’s so peaceful. After gardening I always feel restored, calm and that I’ve had a complete workout.
BOLDEST DECISION: In retrospect I guess it was to build an architectural house, because it’s unlike any around us. But honestly at the time it just seemed a very natural thing to do. The architects were friends, we admired their work and we didn’t think much beyond that.
