A Home Around a Pool
Karachi, Sindh, Pakistan
Interior Renovation, Built
30,000 Sq. Ft.
This home is for a ceramist and a painter. The couple wished to have spaces in which they could each create their art in a specific and solitary way. As a design strategy, the home is divided into a studio and living unit. A screened courtyard in the middle allows for ample light and cross ventilation. It serves as an interstitial space that separates but also connects the two sections of the home.
A collection of essays
Journeying to a new place has an effect on us. It can transform us. Each of us connects with a place in a unique way. A place may speak of excitement, of food, of discovery and joy, or of fear and isolation. Each of us remembers places differently - we remember places through scents, sounds, people and conversations, and we find ourselves traversing through these diverse sensations in multiple ways. We can remember by writing, and by sharing our words, we are able to share that which made these experiences memorable. By sharing, we are able to offer to others the opportunity to wander freely and to live through experiences that are beyond the scope of our individual imagination.
Our first collection brings together a diverse array of voices and perceptions of various places, ranging from stoic mountains to bustling cities. Each piece tells a unique story. We hope you enjoy reading these as much as we enjoyed the process of collecting and curating them.
