I moved around a lot as a kid. We lived in 10 different places by the time I started university, including a year in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania. That was pretty cool. I loved that no matter where we were my parents always made our house feel like our home. Because of this experience growing up, I have a huge appreciation for that concept: home. I will always bring that respect to my work with my clients.
Here are some of the many facets of “home” to me:
Beauty/function, spatial, tactile, enclosing/open, public/private, interior/exterior, safe, gathering/alone, messy, joyful, heartfelt, noisy/quiet, busy/peaceful, friendly, caring, playful, loving, warm, tender, personal, façade, designerly, quirky, curated, light/dark, small/large, group/self, adult/child, opacity/transparency, masculine/feminine, colourful/neutral.
