missing a big chunk



hmm. i'm having a reflective day today. so much on my mind. but do i really want to go down that path and put it out there for the whole world to read?? being an architect is a big part of who i am... what makes me tick and get out of bed in the morning. it's more than what i do. these photos are from one of my projects that had started construction when i went on maternity leave. i drop in about once a month to have a look and it's looking great, but lately i've had this unsettling feeling like i'm the guest at the end of a party who just won't go home. i've made it clear that i'm keen to come back to work, at least for a couple of days a week, but it seems i've been given the polite shoulder. i know the dreaded gfc has come down hard on architects, but it just feels a bit more disappointing than that. maybe it's just time for me to grow up and realise that this could be an opportunity to do my own thing.

anyway.. a little about the design.. it's a beautiful old house where we've maintained the existing front rooms that were worth keeping and then opened it up before the new 3-storey modern addition. we've separated the old + the new with a double height void. i don't want to go on and on about it, but thought i'd mention the window that's going in between the basement bar and pool.. can't wait to photograph that once it's finished.
