    I have always been fascinated with the idea of intimate space.

    The definition of “intimate” is an adjective that suggests “friendly” and “devoted”.  As it relates to three-dimensional space, we can extrapolate that intimate space is a space that is familiar and close to us, dear to us.  Built structures of a small scale do not overwhelm us – they welcome and comfort us…

    By training and profession, I am an interior designer and soon-to-be architect (I must first pass a rigorous professional exam).  I started my education and career in interior design because I had an interest in how we use interior space – we do, after all, spend 90% of our lives inside.  I completed my education with an architectural degree because I wanted to better understand the “outer” context from which interior space resided.

About this Blog

Comprehensive design at its best can be quite a sensual experience – calling attention to sight, sound and touch. I believe the best designers are generalists and agile in their approach to design. At the same time, they are connoisseurs of things that are of particular interest to them. seamless is a blog intended to document my investigation towards the type of practice I want to build: a practice where the lines of architecture and interior design are blurred or, shall I say it? seamless..
