Rosslyn’s icehouse looks a little different this evening. The east entrance door was installed by Peter, subtly transforming the most visible elevation of the building and finally illuminating the entrance hallway with natural light after months in a “cloistered” work environment without any natural light.
Although there remains some additional shimming and trimming (plus removing paint from the window panes), the public facade of the icehouse is finally coming into focus. However, another element will appear about a month from now, a familiar element for those already accustomed to this facade. I’m going to keep mum for now, but a fun surprise soon!
The much anticipated exterior change is only half the news. The interior is transformed! Sure, the overpainting tempers the impact of this new door, but it’s already recasting the interior in natural light. And a welcome evolution this is. You might recall that all windows and doors were closed in with insulated paneling months ago to ensure a warm, weatherproof work environment during the winter. Well, it worked perfectly, but everyone on the team is longing for natural light. At last the entrance vestibule is illuminated from without. I’m looking forward to starting my day in the icehouse tomorrow morning to see that it looks with the sunrise bathing the interior…
What do you think?
