What had significant effect on your approach to design?
The understating that architecture is not about forms its much more about ideas and concepts translated into a three dimensional space in order to create an atmosphere , the form it’s just the result.
How does the architect design the interaction between individual and the environment?
Its all about the creating relations between the built environment and the exterior context , the space that we leave empty its as important as the space we built this non space give strength to architecture.
What are the main elements to consider when designing a house?
The way people live in a very personal an authentic way, we become just the translators of those things into a space.

An honest and personal design and with personal I don’t mean individual ,architecture its always a collaboration but personal in a way that is authenticit comes form the very deep of each one of us.
