A brick house is just a brick house, that is until Zecc Architects get their hands on it. Using brown shade Danish brick handmade by Petersen especially for this project, referring to it as “brick monolith” they have bridged the place between tradition and contemporary. The two story structure in Groenekan, the Netherlands wears tremendous deep sill windows, a refreshing cut from all the one tone exterior. Inside the L shaped living space centers itself around the inviting patio, all views leading outside.

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
