” working In environments such as Amsterdam, Sydney etc has given me a new fresh approach to design, I really do believe as people we are a product of our environment. I see this more and more when architects tend to forget the ‘people scale”and places become hard to engage with, almost alien, people don’t feel connected. This happened In Almeria Nederlands, where Rem Koolhauus Designed a great new precinct but no one wanted to shop there.”

” The dutch design scene is very different to LondonDesign, I would say its more innovative in the use of materials and the Dutch outlook tends to help with the design process, as a go for it attitude!”

Funny these days I tend to believe when walking into shops, bar restaurant  that rather than create an amazing interior, investing in training and customer service is key. I almost think to start there and ten build the design around this. Its almost as if when first entering into a new flagship store the expectation levels are huge, takes just one bad service experience to really put the nail in the coffin!

“So whats happened to the good olde creative sketch?”

Well I firmly believe to work in this field you must be able to conceptualise with a sketch. Theres someting about designerd who can “Feel” and engage more though the design process with a sketch. Sounds a bit etherial , but honestly its true!”

“A sketch forms the basis of the design. Sketching and interpreting idea in front of a client and team is always going to make the creative process more integrated.”
