The upper floor is a beautiful airy timber-trussed loft, a city sanctuary and single space, brightly lit by a high roof-light and large light-well windows without views. The lower floor consequently works hard to provide bedroom, study/guestroom, bathroom, cloaks, entrance hall and staircase. The dividing walls are in effect all storage or display units, with shelves for the free association of a fascinating collection of cultural artefacts, collected on extensive travels.
Openings for the sliding American walnut veneered door panels are sized to optimise sightlines to the windows. When closed and therefore fully revealed, the panels provide enclosure, privacy and a mood of natural warmth and material richness within an otherwise white and minimal space. When open they allow the family the run of the place.
The playful ambiguities of this lower space recall the bifurcations of a maze or labyrinth; the five panels, open or closed, give a total of 32 possible permutations of the space.
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
