For a few weeks now we have been working on a brief for the architects and I find that a very creative and stimulating process. A brief could take many forms but we decided to make a number of mind maps with titles like ‘What we like’, ‘Materials we like’, ‘What we enjoy doing’, ‘Images we like’, … it also includes a little paragraph about each member of the family and all this should help the architect to understand us as a family, how the spaces need to flow and how they should be assembled to fit our daily lives. I shall be very interested in how the architects respond to that. Only one architect actually asked for a brief at this stage but we will send it out to all three of them.
I have contacted three architects now and they all confirmed they are interested in working with us and we will meet them in the summer when we are in Austria.
A plasterer will come next Monday to put up a ceiling rose in the lounche and complete the missing coving in the dining room.
