Carpenters listen to AM radio and are gentle, philosophical people with rhythm and time for a chat. Carpenters are a major reason for my infatuation with timber. Good carpenters are good dads and understand children. Good carpenters and trades with an eye for design and a willingness to communicate to resolve junctions on site together are essential when the whole intent is to juxtapose heritage with materiality and light in new spaces. Really they need to have a disposition leaning towards artisan or craftsman. When an enticing composition draws attention, it is essential that the details are clean and well done; that cut edges show the material inside, and that old material surfaces are retained or adapted to suit an overall calm and grounded ambience.
