I have always deeply enjoyed the work of Edwin Lutyns and CFA Voysey.
Recently I was asked to design a bay window for a hipped roof stucco ranch.
My client wanted to create a very special, whimsical feel to her office retreat.
Hearing this. I took the opportunity to go immediately to Edwin Lutyens design of "Goddards". The result was delightful.
These were the pictures I was working from as I changed what was made of brick and stone to beautiful douglas fir.
The interior walls of the bay were extended to create the end panels of bookcases These again were douglas fir. I carved a large trillium in the upper left and right hand panel.
... a lot of fun.
Here's what it looks like installed.
