By dismembering the construct of houses – their ideals and archetypes – Honeywill rewards us with moving insights into our own domestic condition. She is gifted at reconciling polarities, such as the hard-edged aesthetics of Modernism and the gentle flourish of domesticity, which she distils into an arcane language of signs. Honeywill creates not the houses we live in now but the houses we dreamt of as children; simplistic structures that have more in common with Monopoly houses than actual bricks and mortar.
