PHILOSOPHY OF ESPAI
the philosophical foundation of espai is a passion for, and deep belief in, connection and authenticity through sensory expression and openness in a given space.
My integrity lies in transcending current trends and uniformly undertaking a holistic approach integrating the required function of the space (the brief) with the articulation of the individual/s.
Current trends are only ever 'current' for a short - progressively even shorter - thereby only ever being a shallow, 'throw away' inclination of the moment. Never to last.
espai is not interested in design for the main purpose of 'one up-man-ship', pomp, flash, or pure wow factor. My passion lies in the unique qualities of the individual and the perceived sensory experience in the space. this is what I believe to be the triumph and goal of what I sset out to achieve.
Either consciously or subconsciously we all respond to our surroundings through sensory input. The language of a space speaks to us sublimely to create a feeling - any one of which may be, but not restricted to, feeling restful, fresh, welcoming, comfortable, peaceful, engaging, belonging, entertaining - to on-edge, uncomfortable, awkward, not belonging, cold clinical, despondent etc. These given feelings directly affect the way we sense, perceive and interact with those around us and ultimately view ourselves. It is the understanding and utilisation of this language that delivers a space aligned with the individual/s needs, personality and ultimately supports the affiliated use.
Through design my purpose is to endorse;
The integrity of being
The integrity of being alongside others
The integrity of being with others
The integrity of sharing space
And the integrity of just being
it is without question that good, considered and sensitive design, enhances and promotes the way we live, feel and connect to the world around us.
