Living Well

It had been so long I had completely forgotten. Our design assistant was cleaning out a file cabinet this week  found these old color photocopies of a Ferrari showroom space I designed back in the early ’90′s in the lower level of the Gaston Andrey dealership in Framingham. It was called Parabolica.

In it’s day it was pretty funky…

And yes, we CAN do modern/contemporary…

 

Floor materials were terrazzo, slate, turkish glass tile and porcelain tile. Black ceiling with track lighting.

 

Detail of the display units…

 

Custom counter detail…

 

While we’re in the Way Back Machine, here’s my baby. A 1979 308 GTB set up for the track – totally street legal and she went like stink!!! It is now owned by a collector in New York State. Many, many, many happy memories.

Cheers,

This year was different… I arrived to find the the water in the pond about 5 – 6 feet above normal – more typical of it’s level at ice out in April. The dock had to be pulled back out of the water. It was on the verge of floating away, being tethered by a rope to a near by tree. Normally, there is a good 10 – 15 feet of beach in front of the boat house. I stood in water at the boat house doors that was up to the middle of my thigh.

 

Normally, I can paddle a canoe or kayak under this bridge. I didn’t even try.

 

AND, I arrived to discover that the hot water tank was dead and needed to be replaced. That turned in to quite an adventure… In spite of the hight water, no hot water and constant rain (There had been 130 continuous days of measurable precipitation!!!) I managed to get in some good fishing, reading, napping and eating.

It was very enjoyable recording the various moods of the mountains – from the gray skies to rainbows to crystal clear evenings.

 

May favorite time of day was the end of the day. I would spend it sitting on the boat house deck watching evening settle on the pond.

 

One of the reasons the deck was so relaxing, were the reflections in the water…

The last image is a reflection flipped “right side up…”

I’ve been back in Boston a week and it’s taken that much time to get myself back up to speed.. This week we are to have temperatures in the 90′s all week. Ironic that I worked on three fireplace mantel designs… That will be a post for another day…

 

Cheers and have a wonderful week!
