Richard's works range in scale from small studio living spaces to some of the highest value homes in the world. Irrespective of the size of a project, he designs spaces and objects that possess a calm elegance, with an emphasis on simple forms and the careful selection of materials. The delicate control of light, both natural and artificial, is fundamental in his work; the light is celebrated and the darkness indulged, creating spaces with a gentle drama and a quiet intensity.
Dark stone surfaces and warm cherry wood give this spa and gym a gentle intimacy that is punctuated by a subtle interplay of light with deep shadow. The wall of rotating fins provides a notional separation between the spa and gym spaces and as the fins rotate, changing geometric shadow patterns are projected onto the ceiling.
