Always start a design with a few bold moves, and realize that these are the core concepts. They tell the story of the entire project, and differ for every new project. The strength of the finished product lies with keeping these whole. In all the edits and evolutions that happen during the design and construction process, always stick by the initial big design moves.
— Successful spaces are characterized by light, circulation, and sensible adjacencies.
— Space can be defined by walls, and sculpted with light, views and colors.
— Design for the occupants of the space and the given site.
— Make spaces for movement and also spaces for stillness.
— Look to nature and history for meaning. The context of a place will inform a design and its potential.
