Four season housing.
Over the past 5 years, we’ve spent our time exploring Europe from North to West to East to South.
We’ve lived in many different types of home, in a range of location types. Some were built for Summer, with the goal of keeping the heat (and light) out. Not a good choice for a Winter home, not even with a log burner in-situ. Some were built for Winter, with the goal of absorbing as much heat as possible. Not a good choice for Summer. Some weren’t built to be homes at all, such as converted olive presses. These were neither suitable for Summer or Winter use.
So we have come to value the importance of the correct approach to the seasons in designing and building living accommodation.
We’re bringing all the knowledge gathered from our travels and experiences to bear in the design of Sanctuaries. Whilst we won’t be resident for more than 50% of the year, others will be there, on retreat, visitors staying on as helpers. We want to create an environment that will work all year around, for work, play, yoga and meditation, as well as everyday living.
Sanctuaries will resonate within its environment.
