Landing this door project was fortuitous. "I've been coveting this house for 37 years; it's a beautiful iconic home that I admired every time I passed it," says Wallace. "When I arrived to meet the client, I couldn't believe I had the opportunity to work on it ... it was a real treat." Wallace's process for creating a design starts with the house, both indoors and out. "I observe their home, their possessions, and how they inhabit it." This information is interpreted into her designs, which begin with a sketch. The drawings are then enlarged to scale; she creates the metal work on top of them using pegs on a table.
