"We find beauty not in the thing itself but in the patterns of shadows, the light and the darkness, the one thing against the other creates." Junichiro Tanizaki

It has been said that "less is more". Here, a dim and small 1/2 basement area with no nearby windows uses a lighter color and texture pallete and artificial lighting to highlight the simple, architectonic forms. A new brick barrel vault ceiling adds a little character and some needed ceiling height, showing that "small can be more" also. New home design that allows for a variety of forms and spaces creates a special sense of place.
