Quote of the day: But isn’t this how every house should feel?

“Architect Dominic Glamuzina says [the original 1970’s house] invokes the feeling that one should have a cocktail in one’s hand at all times while wandering through it.”
- from an article reporting on an extension to Claude Megson’s Rees House, above (part of this complex of townhouses)

Quite right too.
