Compare the coldness of lines and substance [of modern architecture] – there is nothing “colder” than cement – to the recollection, the warmth, and the harmony of these old houses in Warwick.

Simple houses, unpretentious, pleasing to the gaze, the very image of the daily life of their inhabitants. Houses that follow the same style, yet each one having its note of originality, discreet and lively.
