The Complexity of Simplicity

May 9, 2012 0

Years ago, as a design student, I became acutely aware of how difficult it is to achieve true simplicity of design. It was a complex process to get there, to edit ideas and solutions until at last the result felt better, cleaner and more true to the spirit of what I had envisioned. To this day, it is that simplicity of solution that excites me. I also have discovered that this process is underrated and even as the designs take shape they are sometimes undervalued by clients who somehow feel that more is better, when in fact less is most often far superior. There is a wonderful book that I wanted to share with you.  It is inspirational through it’s expression of architecture and design. The spaces photographed are airy, light-filled rooms. The designs are elegant, straightforward and functional. Here are some images from The Simple Home: The Luxury of Enough, by Sarah Nettleton, AIA published by Taunton Press.
