Welcome .  .  .  .  .  .  In domestic architecture especially, the few attempts at contemporary design have not been very successful. Perhaps these design motifs are not applicable to domestic architecture. I have yet to see a satisfying and comfortable house done in the contemporary style. Contemporary art is best explored on canvas and in the sculpture garden.

 

Contemporary solutions are full of  controversy  and attempt to validate itself. But the older forms of domestic architecture have passed this stage of initiation, and centuries ago justified their existence.

 

"A house speaks . . . oh, indeed  it does. . . . it talks of grace, honesty, and hospitality  . . . . or  of shallow pretence."
