I had imagined a cor-ten steel container, naturally rusted, with a swerving design that would repeat the curved façade of the residence.. The water spouts (you can see them clearly in the photo) will make the water run over the edges with a ripple.
After seeing the fabricator’s first attempt (here still with the protective coating), the contractor built a mock-up from wire mesh that looked like a curved cage. This model was very helpful to determine where to change angles, curvature, height and length to create a more elegant form. The mock-up is now back in the fabricator’s shop, and we are waiting excitedly – will he “get” it, in time for the holidays, as he has promised?
