The idea of a live/work space has always been intriguing to me on a number of levels. The commute would be short and everything in your life would be right there. This structure really makes a statement with it’s dark exterior standing firmly on the corner. I do wonder if it would be hard to find a place that was close to other families and not to commercially located. I must say that the owner has killer taste in furniture and art.
I believe architecture is art, with a beauty that transcends the visual into what it means to be human, to dwell. I see myself as an evolving modernist, one that holds the aesthetic and social ideals existent in the roots of modernism while embracing the needs of a changing environment and culture as points of inspiration.
