USING A VIEW TO ADVANTAGE [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Real Estate Journal — 15 October 1930
? i a ii USING A VIEW TO ADVANTAGE At first sight this plan may appear a little confused and complicated but, closer inspection shows, on the contrary; that it is really very convenient and logical. A large lounge with a :Y corner fireplace and each corner splayed off to correspond should prove an interestinf? cham ber, .while a dining nook looks after the meals. The bedroom accommodation consists of three .... bedrooms, a sleep-out verandah, and the bathroom, which is centralW situated to all -these f- . rooms, has the bath set in an unusual position, accessible on_ both sides which is a novelty -; as well as an advantage. The elevation is .simple and pleasing without undue detail, and should prove very effective at the minimum of cost. The circular lines on the plan clearly illustrate the position of the sun's path in' summer and \vinter, while the extent of view for which the place is designed is also set out.
