Modern and ancient blend to create a soothing space, full of wonderment.
How soothing is stone to our eyes and senses? I find that even though it is cool to the touch, to the eyes, it is quite warm... I believe its natural shape and color lend to such a comforting look. I have to admit, one of my favorite aspects of stone or concrete construction is the assuring depth of the walls—don't windows look better, somehow? The perfect backdrop... and how lovely with a spiral staircase and a little loft area for a library.
