Harmony is essential to all relationships.
One of the most thrilling moments in my architectural career occurs when I develop a personal relationship with my client and I’m able to create a space that provides peace, comfort and joy.
Japanese art and architecture adhere to the principles of harmony with nature. In Japan, a structure can stand alone in a field, or be situated on a city block in a busy metropolis, but chances are it was designed with nature in mind.
Architects have a responsibility to positively impact our world and my goal is to create spaces that will forever live in a person’s lifetime of memories. Whether you’re moving through a city block or walking from room to room in your home, architecture creates dynamic and constantly changing environments we experience every second of our lives. We might not realize the degree to which architecture affects our lives directly and indirectly, as it shapes and transforms our environment. Take some time throughout your day to observe the landscape around you, wherever you happen to be.
How does that space affect you? Do you feel relaxed and balanced?
