Mole Architects

Mole Architects is a British firm established by Meredith Bowles, and their portfolio knocked my socks off.

This is a creative bunch who really knows how to maximize space and creates dwellings that allow the homeowners to fully appreciate their surroundings - more on that in the next post. (I have to say that the FULLY carpeted bedroom has left me thoroughly perplexed though...)
