““whatever is true for space and time, this much is true for place: we are immersed in it and could not do without it. To be at all - to exist in any way – is to be somewhere, and to be somewhere is to be in some kind of place”.
"No one therefor can conceive anything, but they must conceive it in some place”.

The Barns Ness Lighthouse is an excellent place to base the consultancy. Although, draughty and a little run down, it is imbued with plenty of memory and meaning. A redundant building looking for a modern re-use and social reintegration. A structure built to warn humanity of hazards and give guidance in moments of turmoil and uncertainty.
