And my obsession with it.
I dont think I realised the extent of my obsession with the grid until we finished building our house. As I sit at the table in our living area and look around I see the grid motif appearing everywhere!
There is order in the grid. A quiet formality. The A-type in me likes the quiet and calm of order.
I also enjoy the repetition of horizontal and vertical lines creating the consistent pattern. A division of spaces, units... cells, within these lines, creates a beautiful harmony. I think coming from the design world, the rhythmic grid comes naturally to me.
And I do love the stunning contrast between the clean order of line with organic nature.
