Let me introduce Studio Nine, a South Australian architectural practice. I was going to wax lyrical about their modern, honest spaces but their own words some up their design beliefs best.
“Think of when you have been forced to spend time in a room you hated; then compare that with one you never wanted to leave because you loved being there. Love and hate. Two very powerful emotions. But why?
Architecture has a profound effect on the natural environment. And naturally, that includes human beings. Beyond what we perhaps realise, it influences our emotions, our moods, our efficiency, our creativity, how we conduct our lives and our business. The style, the colours, the materials used, the space and the light all evoke a human reaction. Maybe not an overt response. But their effects are undeniable.”
And where would I like to be? In that bright, light and oh so green kitchen. How could you not start the day with pep in your step?
