I believe that for architecture to be commercially successful, a humanistic approach is critical. When we understand who we’re designing for and how they will be experiencing the spaces we create, we can respond with appropriate forms, materials, and building methodologies. It’s important to me that people can see that care and attention has been applied to the crafting of a space. From the way the building responds to its urban context down to the smallest touchpoint – all details are equally important. I think the best designs create solutions that respond to people, and to which people respond.
Over my 25-year career, I’ve gained extensive international experience on projects of varying scale and complexity. As a practice principal, my goal is to engender an environment that fosters our creative craft while collaborating with our clients to deliver exceptional projects.
My family and I often have a ‘tech shabbat’ on Sundays, where we don’t use any technology with screens. It lets you turn your mind off and just enjoy a day of analogue experiences. Architecture truly is my creative outlet. I even designed my own house from the ground up.
