    There are days when I look at a picture and wish I could pour myself into it. And I think that today’s images are so heavenly you may wish to dive in and join me.

    We’re off to Munich, to the Atelier Rosa, studio space of the late German sculptor Hermann Rosa. The photos of this magical ensemble of concrete boxes are by Jürg Zimmermann.

    The interiors are denuded of all save the absolute minimum. A single material (concrete) is deployed throughout with tremendous effect. Silver birches soften tough exteriors. Boarded formwork joints part and make way for inset plumbing pipes, which become sculptural – a bas-relief of utility. Daylight scuds across knobbly bare walls. An elemental concrete stair leads one up to a vaulted hall. A simple round skylight recalls the moon. Modest pavers lead the eye and the inhabitant deeper into the forest glade.

    Even the outdoor dunny is achingly beautiful.

    The simplest steel-framed doors and windows set the concrete off just beautifully.

    Disposed and dispersed through it all is the work of Hermann Rosa, a man about whose work I know nothing, wish I knew more of, but who left the world in his studio, a perfect, perfect place.

    Ende.
