HeadRoad 1815…

…Perched high on a ridge with views to infinity this three storey home in Fresnaye, Cape Town by SAOTA – Stefan Antoni Olmesdahl Truen Architects – takes advantage of a difficult steep site. Balancing concrete, glass and granite on columns that dig deep into the ground, the architects have opened the building’s face to that amazing vista. Such solidity balanced by a desire to run, jump and fly away into the blue.

…how great is this?  architecture, interior design, and family pet…in harmony.

…fresh air and sunlight.

…you’ll find me here.

Flow…

...people are happiest when they are in a state of flow— a state of concentration or complete absorption with the activity at hand and the situation. It is a state in which people are so involved in an activity that nothing else seems to matter. The idea of flow is identical to the feeling of being in the zone or in the groove.Flow Theory by Mihaly Czikszentmihalyi

…happy optimal experience…
