Abstract
There are many forces at work in a design process.

Each element of a design sketch reacts to ones

before and after it. As a designer, one must be

able to look at each individually and as part of

the whole. In addition, the ideals and experiences

brought to a project works its magic as well.

It is the tension and the balance between the

elements and ideals that create architecture.

With a Bed and Breakfast as a project vehicle,

the connection to the site, the relationship

between public and private areas, and how the

materials and structure form spaces were studied.

These considerations led to a process of discovery

and the challenge to weave the site, structure,

and materials in a cohesive design.
