A calm sense of awe

The New York Times has an article on Chris Travis of Roundtop, Texas. The houses are not only breathtakingly beautiful but, are constructed with his clients’ needs and lives in mind. One Tuscan exterior belies the old barn interior. The wrought iron railings on the staircase, the beautiful sandy colored stone and the arched windows elicit a deep calming breath. But wait, there’s more! This isn’t just another pretty space. This architect did his homework, he created a space based on the way his clients saw themselves using the space.
