"Sometimes When I Consider What Tremendous Consequences Come

From Little Things, I Am Tempted To Think There Are No Little Things"

What People Say

Ed and Katha Wood involved me in a major residential project just outside Ronda in Andalucia. They had acquired a cortijo in a very rough state, and they wanted my help as part of a major makeover which they planned.

The key elements of this, in which I became involved, lay in the creation of a new courtyard, an impressively sized staircase, a cloister and a swimming pool garden. All of these were new. Ed and Katha had the outline ideas of what they wanted, and appointed me as the interpreter and constructor of these...with the overall, all important, watchword that they must all appear to have been in place for ever.

This brief was a most exciting one, given to me by a couple who know their own minds.

Together, I think we delivered the result they wanted. So many guests who have since visited the property confirm this. It was a great pleasure for me and my team to work with Ed and Katha and I hope very much that I may have the opportunity to work with them again.
