What you see is what you get as in the Lågno Summer House by Tham & Videgård.  An interior suites its exterior. The peeks and walls are exactly presented inside, no surprises or secrets. The cement façade  is a heavy subject amidst the peaceful bay and surrounding forest. However it centers the property, brings a sense of stability and security.  Its breezeway includes a connecting trellis for dimension, a sure place for fine conversations.  The lineup of windows across the floor plan front makes way for beautiful views and allows the outside more in, the inside more out. Simple furnishings and lack of fluff deem every visit complete serenity, free from worldly nonsense.

I find a way to fearlessly provoke your senses and take you by the heart to whatever it is I’m writing about. My sweet spot is creative writing, but for the last 20 years I have been providing freelance content for publications on sustainability and green practices, design, architecture, fashion, and non-profit charity. Recently all wrapped up in producing my first book. I have bounced from NYC to Indianapolis, but my true home is a lovely small town in Central Pennsylvania where there’s a legit drive-your-tractor-to-school-day.
