I chose the beautiful soft grey to showcase the graceful folds of the body and the dark grey to highlight the regularity of the houses. I wanted to contrast that with something more rigid but not permanent. I had been inspired by some beach huts that I had seen when visiting France and thought that they would be the ideal juxtaposition.
The name Woodrow comes from the old English meaning a row of houses by a wood.
