I was once again asked by the residential team to help them prepare the design presentation. It was good to be involved in residential again once in a while. It refreshed me from any routine-like job. Thus making the day a little bit more interesting as it took me away from the more challenging job. It was like painting art work again.
I was amazed with this typical British housing. It has very typical layout and elevations yet once the right materials consisting of various colour of bricks, stones, slates and timber are applied onto it, you'll see how different the typical housing has magically been transformed into. They revealed the pure and true beauty of the materials. The house is no longer a plain, simple, concrete house or cheap brick covered with plasters, painted with fake colours!
