His design philosophy is that a space is complete when people are present. He analyzes each client’s needs using his
keen insight and visualization skills. As design challenges vary depending on the project, the solution to those
challenges also varies with each project and client. Therefore, the designing for each project is continuous process.
In contemporary design setting, the value of a space is a function of the time people spend there. He is particular about
details. His approach to design is flexible and a full range of feasible alternatives is always considered. His design
concepts diverge from contemporary stereotypical rules and manuals. In the end, his client’s values and visions are
reflected in designs that manifest creativity and new ideas and relationships.
