Old Spawns, New Spawns rustic-family-room

Old Spawns, New Spawns

It may not be an easy road to look at your old shoes and have the courage to believe that they will once again be new. Architecture reserves the pleasure to make such an impossibility possible. By addressing the core needs and values required in a quality living environment and home, this house carried with it a baggage of a caverous nature. This state of living in itself motivated a transformation. The ever invaluable injections and penetrations of light, coupled with a clean centralised flow and point to point connectivity instead of a previously labyrinthine access did all to give more to the dwellers.

Nice er.... cave. But I like the lighting, really makes use of the structure of the walls. But the way the sofa is placed really emphasises the length and narrowness of the room.
