Laverton Street

The designs of buildings often focus on the façade which is the area we can control when designing. We have no say in what happens on the adjoining property, the edge between the buildings is the most interest to me.

I like looking at facades it is what the designer set up for us to see, then I like to look at the adjoining property which the designer couldn’t control and then the space in between. The space between buildings is a negative volume which contains a lot of interest. In this instance it is a left over space, and a lot of it for a relatively small property.

I have made comment on many of my images that I like what happens at the edges, in this case the edge of a house but it could also be the edge of a suburb.
