Life is a journey up a spiral staircase; as we grow older we cover the ground covered we have covered before, only higher up; as we look down the winding stair below us we measure our progress by the number of places where we were but no longer are.

On the very prosaic, pragmatic level - it’s about problem solving, but on the other hand, it's doing that in a beautiful way - seeking to enhance people's lives. I am very interested in domestic architecture. For example, what’s the difference between a house and a home? And what makes a good place, a good nest for a family? That has always interested me. You work in different scales - residential, commercial and community buildings.
