norway on the edge of culture - WALLPAPER march 1999 UK

Inspired by their Scandinavian surroundings, making silence a virtue.
Design to absorb and reflect the cool Scandinavian climate.
The building is clad in larchwood, which weathers to a silvery grey reniniscentof old barns and outhouses. A tall timber screen hung with ivy, honeysuckle, clematis and trailing hops, provides scent and colour in summer, and allows for an open view of the park in winter.
We are inspired by quiet things, such as a large old barn in the snow, or the sandy concrete of an overgrown wall.
