322 – Gracious spaces

Some of the office buildings in Wellington are beautiful – monuments demonstrating the prosperity found in the head offices of the major companies common in the capital in the early 20th century. I love them – the marble and travertine walls, leadlight windows, with art deco and art nouveau often fused together. The sophisticated colours are so beautiful – warming and comforting after the storm clad days outside. More modern buildings use darker granites, cold black stone – an effort to be modern that really just ends up looking cold and plastic.

Manifesto
06. Every day you make choices.
16. Every day looking at the order of things gives you power.
42. Every day celebrate. Who you are. What you have achieved. Things that matter to you.
