This is the attractive building in Saltaire that yesterday's lighted window came from. The building, once a house (or two) and now an office, is situated at the junction of Victoria Road and Saltaire Road, opposite the Salts Hospital building. It is beautifully cared for, kept very smart and the tiny garden is nicely designed too. It gives a me a little lift of pleasure everytime I pass by - day or night.
I suppose if you are an architectural consultant and interior designer, then you would want your home-base to do justice to your brand. The company, Rone Design, has occupied these premises since 1989. I don't honestly know much about them but they obviously work in partnership with architects and other professionals on new building projects and renovations, acting as project managers, quantity surveyors and consultants. Read about them on their website. It's vital that Saltaire continues to attract and keep businesses, as well as being a residential area. An architectural consultancy seems to fit neatly within the ethos of Saltaire as a creative, arts-based community.
Thanks to Stacy at 'Microcosm' for your kind words and link to my blog. I think it's time listed a few more of my favourite blogs, so where better to start than 'Microcosm' - 'a blog that explores the beauty that can exist in restricted circumstances'. Given that I tend to focus much of the time on a very small patch of the globe here in Saltaire, Stacy and I - for different reasons - share something in common, looking at the detail close round us rather than at the bigger picture.
