‘The past is the beginning of the beginning…’ HG Wells

The final stages of work on a house in Germany bring important opportunities for quiet observation — to see and to feel what has been made. With walls and floors empty of furniture, rugs and art, the characteristics of the architecture exist in a state of uncompromising clarity: the key spatial moves, the material palette, the quality of the junctions, the fall of the light and the latent atmosphere.
