 “I wanted to take the arch, one of the most fundamental elements in the history of architecture, and add a new dimension to it by creating a curved internal wall. Something which creates a sensual experience when walking or standing under it due to its soft shape.”

The color purple is a rare occurring color in nature and as a result is often seen as having sacred meaning. Lavender, orchid, lilac, and violet flowers are considered delicate and precious. Throughout history, purple robes were worn by royalty and people of authority or high rank. Many believe this to be true because the rare occurrence of purple in nature made it one of the most expensive color dyes to create.

“I have felt this is a good time to use this colour, as it does break the mould a bit, and in what I believe to be the right time. I like the references it has to ancient times. It has also been a personal favourite of mine for a long time”


says Nick Ross.
