Every detail matters…

Every detail matters…

Between the design and the actual construction of a house, each unique element needs to be detailed to ensure it is built with functionality, materiality, and beauty, utilitas, firmitas, venustas… also translated as ‘unity in the face of difference’.   Beyond the look of the design, proportion, and arrangement of the elements, is the balance against how to construct.  This parapet on a project under construction seems simple on the surface, but care was taken to draft the details – balancing waterproofing, structure, and aesthetics.
