This is a design that emerged from the owners desire to create a home inspired by diverse sources within an Arts and Crafts linage. We created a ‘history’ in this home in a way that it appeared to have been built and added to over several generations with inspiration contemporary with different ages. Art, music, literature and architecture from over 300 years was pulled together in a cohesive unit in this composition of a private dwelling. Sources as diverse as John Ruskin, the Bible and Tolkien’s “Lord of the Rings” literature inspired the design throughout.
