Sum of its parts?

Sum of its parts?

The whole is greater than the sum of its parts” is attributed to Aristotle.  Custom or catalog – bespoke or boilerplate?   What is the measure of our capacity as architect?  What goes into making your home uniquely yours?  This sheet details how the hand drawn plaster surround encases the door, how it merges with the mouldings of the water table and how it relates to the brackets that (visually) support the balcony.  Each element must be worthy to stand on its own but still work with the others to form the complete ensemble.

Credit to the builder for the craftsmanship.
