Design excellence

My idea of design excellence is the ability to understand & create inspiring spaces and the experience & emotions the spaces project to its users. I especially like seeing how clever marriages of mixing old & new materials, textures and lighting and varied techniques can add layers of complexity design and the overall spaces.
