Holyrood House Palace-EXCERPT: ''The wooden ceilings of the main rooms in the North West tower were created during the reign of Mary, Queen of Scots. Her monogram, MR (Maria Regina) and the IR monogram (Jacobus Rex) refer to Mary and her son, James VI. The suite contains an audience chamber and the Queen's bedroom, leading from which are two turret rooms. In the northern turret room, on 9 March 1565, the infamous murder of David Rissio took place in Mary's presence.'
Pathway House / Jacobs-Yaniv Architects. The house is divided in two sections (hosting and sleeping) with a pathway in the middle, engaging plants and skylights. There are no columns or walls, but bare concrete ribs running from the central pathway towards the main terrace, conducting a subtle rhythm to light penetrating the house through the roof, nurturing both the plants and the people inside.
