I already knew the moment I had purchased this home that I would have enjoyed it to the full. It is also my office, the place where I cultivate my hobbies and where I have the worst habits. Here more than in other places, the quality of the air that I breathe in is vitally important.
I’m a professional designer but I love painting: what I cannot depict on by designs I put on my paintings. I am not tied down to time, my ideas come to mind when I least expect them to, and I often find myself painting at night: without there being a sufficient exchange of air, I risk going to bed breathing in solvents and starting off my day with headaches.
When you live and work at home it is difficult to find some time for myself.
I succeeded, by forcing myself doing some jogging in the evening: this is the best way to declare it a day done and to start feeling relaxed. I come in sweating and feel back to life again, ready to go into the shower and to cook for my friends.
By the time I welcome them in, it’s already fresh again.
When I’m concentrated on my work, it would be enough if I remembered I have to eat, imagine if I could ever remember to open the windows. Seeing that I cannot do without breathing, it is self-assuring to know that there is 'someone’ who checks the air for me and makes sure that it is always fresh.
