In the second part of our journals with David Holland, a talented Worcestershire-based architect, we explore the emotional and physical development of buildings. At whatever stage you get introduced to a space; whether it be through the initial design stages, being the first habitant or you get to enjoy the home down the line, there’s always something exciting around the corner.
Now, this is not to say that we should all be overly sentimental and treat our homes like living museums, preserving everything at the expense of actually enjoying it! We can still write the next chapter for our homes, but it’s important to realise we don’t need to completely erase everything that has gone before in the process. The imperfections are not necessarily negative but rather give character to something to make it wholly perfect in itself.
