Jonathan Gibb : Working on it to become a reality. .Frank Scott: How long did it take you to design this particular concept?. Jonathan Gibb : From start to finish a 6 month journey of sketching design ideas and simple geometries to placing on the computer as a 3D model and rendering images to convey the 'spirit' of the work. .Frank Scott: Why did you design this particular concept? Was this design commissioned or did you decide to pursuit an inspiration?. Jonathan Gibb : An inspiration to explore the personable space of the house, relative to the body / inhabitants. Of movement, settling, light penetration to the ultimate longevity of the work - from new to old. It was the inter-link of the garden that like cells of the body constantly renewed to create a living entity. .Frank Scott: How did you come up with the name for this design? What does it mean?.
