On beauty

The beauty of a house comes from how thoughtfully it attends to the needs of domestic life: the way it elevates the mundane, and organizes the rhythms of routine.

 

The beauty of a house comes from how gracefully it responds to its surroundings: how reverently it treats light and views, how much character it relates to its neighbors, and how responsibly it uses the resources it consumes.

A beautiful house is a vibrant and varied boundary between inside and out. It is fertile ground for moments of joy.

A beautiful house is the bold assertion that, given the constraints (of site, budget, regulations, etc.), this is the best way to live.

"If you invest in beauty, it will remain with you all the days of your life." FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT
