STE­FAN AN­TONI,

Condé Nast House & Garden - - ICONS -

This was taken in 1986 at one of my first projects – a plant nurs­ery in Hout Bay that used gum-pole con­struc­tion. The client de­cided to im­pro­vise and change the de­sign; I threat­ened to re­sign. We reached a com­pro­mise and the project was the bet­ter for it. It was a good life les­son – even when you are right (or think you are) you can still learn some­thing.
