Dateless Style & Contemporary Elegance
Fashion, fads and trends can be seductive and very hard to escape, pervading all popular media and seeping into our subconscious. The extremes and mistakes of fashion in clothing, food, cars, and other products can be easily discarded each new season or when out of date. This is all part of our throwaway society.
Architecture and building is an entirely different matter. Buildings are the result of a large investment and meant to serve their owners for many decades or even centuries. This essential difference between an item of disposable clothing and a permanent building requires a totally different approach.
A good building is seeking a timeless quality through the fundamentals of functionality, interesting spaces, sound construction, good environmental conditions, protection from weather extremes and enhancement of lifestyle.
