Design excellence

Understanding the spirit, the purpose and the topograpy a of a space, then being simply coherent with the choices to be made acording to those elements, that is what design excellence requires. But not only! Focus, talent of course, a bit of luck and beffiting humility towards the project are also imperative. When all of this come together, magic happens and History is sometimes made.
