On how to design a sustainable house, he offers some advice: First, start with a good design (that is hence more long-lasting) and correct orientation. Be particular about where the sun and wind directions are for a site and try to purge warm air from inside a home. Having pockets of landscaping and courtyards help the house to breathe, while the threshold concept can be employed to create a buffer between the inside and outside.”
Each house design is itself a collaborative act. Hence, it is important to listen to the owners. “Engaging the right architect is very important. For us, we create unique experiences for owners by infusing their lifestyles and tastes with storytelling [through the architecture]. The book Architecture of Happiness by Alain Botton resonates with me a lot in this aspect. We want to create meaningful and happy spaces for the homeowners; a house is not just four walls and functional spaces. Living in a meaningful space can be enriching.”
