a life in architecture - tania kovats
For many years, the quarry garden at Belsay Hall (pictured), in Northumbria, has been one of artist Tania Kovats' favourite places. 'There are all sorts of tricks, like planting Scots pines on top of the quarry wall, which makes it seem like a much steeper cliff. And there is this funny relationship between the volume that's missing from the quarry and the house itself - it is as if they are equal, although they are not.'
