New Perspectives

‘We begin looking at Rich’s images, which
John is yet to see. He lights up as he flicks
through them, clearly taking pleasure in
seeing the spaces via Rich’s lens, with its
quietly atmospheric quality…

“Architecture should make you feel
something” says John, and his genius is
being able to do that with seemingly very
little. Take for example, the main kitchen,
housed in a former cavernous barn. There is
some elm, some stainless steel, some
Wegner chairs, and some lights designed
by his practice. But it’s the way these have
been thought about and put together
that makes them special.’
