My background is as a trained engineer, so my design preferences are more architectural.
The starting point for an interior whether it be residential or commercial is very much function based. Initially I look at the movement patterns and utilities of each area to be considered. The questions to be asked are about the heating, lighting and duty. When this technical side is understood, it will be time to consider the surface coverings and colours.
Finally the project schedule, timing and budget needs to match desires to costs.
I have worked on numerous contracts over a forty year design career. I now work within the design community known as ‘One of the Great British Designers’.
