white out

I love white, the more of it the better.  Walls, floors, furniture and landscapes filled in with great swathes of it.  I think it gives a building serenity and certainly takes discipline to use to the extent that they have below.  Despite how much I admire its cleanly glossy look, I am not certain I could spend everyday here.   I can imagine the client wearing only black and grey to compliment this set.  Built on a podium that gives privacy and focuses the views upwards towards the vast sky, it is removed from its immediate context.  The brief:  'To build a house for a poet. To make a house for dreaming, living and dying. A house in which to read, to write and to think'.  It would be interesting to read some of the works that are written within these walls.
