Residential Designer and Her Views
[ On Other Designers ] [ Favorite Styles ] [ What's Popular ] [ Design Philosophy ]
In a variation on the philosophy of "Form follows Function", we create a
unity between aesthetics and practicality. In my designs, I always want to
produce a 'combination of rigorous design
intelligence and graceful, lyrical beauty'. Our 'Mediterranean
Series', for example, use exterior styles that
capture a traditional concept of beauty. Yet the interiors evoke
modernism in an interplay of light and space.
In all of my custom-designed homes, I
make it a point that the building relates to the land. I
want the interior to relate to the exterior, and for
both to flow into each other. In most of my residential designs, I want
to create the feeling of 'openness' which could be made
possible through walls of glass doors, skylights, atriums,
pocket gardens, balconies, and lanais that serve as
extension of the interior space.
