What defines luxury

Luxury is many-layered. First come the life comforts – simple warmth and shelter – but aesthetics can add a poetic layer. Architects use proportions, light and material selection to create character and delight. Here, we explore some poetic depictions of luxury as captured by photographers – moments created or framed by architecture that enhance our experience of space and place.
