aged modernism

David Howell (of New York’s DHD Architecture and Design)

We aim to instill spaces with certain principles: an appropriate bridging of indoors and outdoors; a wise and atmospheric use of light as a fundamental part of architecture; a sympathy for site and origin; an exciting use of materials; a marriage of the organic with the common and industrial.

I am, personally, a huge fan of the balance between the design lines of modernism with the depth of character found in aged pieces and architectural elements. Much like life, we need a bit of both.
