Design as collaborative process between architect and client
There are projects where our ideas differ; hence we reach a mutual compromise. But that too is not a compromise in design; it’s a different way of expression. Even though the basic idea of shelter is the same, yet the outcomes are varied and at times fascinating. For example, for this particular home, we wanted all white surfaces with the play of shadows but the client opted for a modern façade.
Similarly, our approach to this resort was very minimalistic, geometric and edgy. While the client asked for softness, elements, and decoration due to tourist business. So we did it without losing on the pergolas and forms. In the end, we came to love this more!
In one of the interior projects, Client imported this Big Buddha wallpaper which changed the entire space. Everyone loves it!
So you never know what makes what of the design, but having two perspectives is always welcome at PAA. This makes us what we are and how we do things! We say NO to lots of things but saying YES to inputs matters.
