The guide said the man who designed buildings had designed the house and everything in it

Save for some important paintings by artist friends of his, which were still on the walls

 

The guide said he had the best job in the world. He spent all of his time here and they paid him to

 

The slim sofa went the length of the deep alcove in the living area

 

The man's oversized books had been built into the design of the bookshelf

 

The man who designed buildings had designed many grand buildings. Far grander than the walls he had built for himself.

 

Each drawer of a wooden five-drawer cabinet had been painted a different shade of blue. From

 

The darkest peacock feather

 

through blue dusty suedes

 

to the bright tones of a holiday sky

 

All this to lift your eyes and draw your attention to the ceiling

 

The man had designed public buildings. The places you go whilst visiting a city. The buildings that define a place and tell you everything about the people who live there

 

When thinking about the garden, attention was given to the view from a particular chair

 

A window had been put in to accommodate a painting

 

The man's house had become one of those places. A place to visit

 

To see what the man who designed buildings had saved for himself
