The before-after and everything in between
At the start one lingers in the house with the architect Duri Vital, talks little. One looks and lets the mind travel. Ideas circle, inspirations come. One part is to keep the other to let go. One starts from scratch. In the end everything is brought down to a common denominator. The construction phase starts. One designs and the theory doesn’t always want to cooperate with practice. One rethinks. Amidst this building chaos it is sometimes difficult to believe the opening will be on schedule. Is it to be managed? On and on it goes. Motivated contractors do their best, first and foremost the architect. Day after day. Deliberately the clouds of dust settle, forms begin to appear. Slowly reality is in line with fantasy. The work is nearing its perfection. Everything is more beautiful than anticipated. It’s magic. One gets prouder and prouder, and all of a sudden the doors open up to everybody. It is lovely to be a hotelier and open your house to all. Thank you for the fine cooperation!
