“Just when you get really wound up, you turn a corner and you’re somewhere else completely. You find an Arcadian glade – a glimpse of paradise in the middle of it all. And that’s why you persevere.”
(Unattributed quote)

The idea behind Sapphire EX15, (The Long Journey Home) was to build something that could transport you somewhere. Viewed externally it has references to modern modular living and is also utilitarian and mobile in appearance. On entering one is confronted with a visual splendour of something new, a designed environment that speaks of new lands and undiscovered places, offering notions of escapism and travel – the discovery of somewhere else, the making of your own time and place where solitude, quietness and moments for the self can be observed.
