Crafting Details - A Place to Live and Work
In order to create a harmonious composition of solid and void, the building is balanced between interior and exterior spaces. The exterior spaces weave through the solids, subsequently allowing for light to enter and create a range of public and private space. The two craftspeople, James Krenov [furniture maker] and Joanna Klink [poet], are both extremely deliberate in their disciplines. Krenov studies his furniture down to the different possibilities for their edge conditions while Klink uses words to form not only the syntax of her poems, but the visual hierarchy as well. The importance of detail, composition and harmony is emphasized both in their professional lives and in their new home.
