We’re beginning to see it everywhere - when it comes to building, small is beautiful. There is a shift in the way we are approaching structures and homes. Whereas we used to think of maximizing inside space, we’re now considering outside space as part of the beauty of what makes a house a home. Whereas there used to be a lack in consideration for the environmental impact on what a large home can be, we are now shifting towards thinking more in terms of needs, versus wants. And when these shifts take place, they naturally allow for more beauty, more attention to detail, more flow in the home and outside in the immediate surroundings.
Denise and Elliot were extremely detailed and conscientious clients to work with. From the initial concept drawings, which they did themselves, they had clear vision for how they wanted their home to look and feel. From the placing of plants and trees on the exterior, to the natural light they wanted flooding into each room at certain times of the day. All detail was aimed at with dexterity and precision from the get go.
