Axel de Beaufort ponders many things, and one of the projects that he’s thinking about right now is a lighthouse. More specifically, building one on an island in an undisclosed part of the world.
“We are discussing this with a client right now. He wanted to do something with us and build an observation place on his island. Perhaps a lighthouse,” de Beaufort shares.
