I have always thought of architecture and interior design as a whole, starting from the smallest furniture pieces of a sitting room, to the largest elevations of a building. From the material palette of an interior space to the exterior forms that shape our cities, it’s all related, and it all comes together to create experiences and stories that define our daily realities. In 2015, a year after graduating with a degree in architecture, I landed my first freelance interior design project called OTR (Off The Record) in the Food and Beverage sector, which pushed me to expand my understanding of detailing, materials and space. It was the project that started my journey in architecture and design. The rush of seeing people occupy your designs is addictive, to say the least, and the realization that your designs can have a profound effect on people and society as a whole has given me a sense of responsibility to make that effect a positive one.
